it's amazing what's out there. i looked for John Zorn once and found this: Knitting Factory Home Page

other media

maps

I've been a map fan since the single digits (an early age). Besides US. Geological Survey, the best I've found are DeLorme's Atlas & Gazeteers. Suitable for driving, biking, or walking, they are sold by state and most (all?) states are covered. Unfortunately, neither DeLorme's nor anybody else's CDROMs match the detail of information in the large page Atlas & Gazeteers.



programming

software

non-profit

Java

I have done a fair amount of Java programming. It is a good, general purpose language.

Mac

Once ported a body of code to the mac os 8 - can you say reboot. A great os to use, but horrible to program on.

Lisp/Scheme

love these languages. who needs more than a pair of parentheses for syntax? Unfortunately, the business community does not concur.
