Hi. Thanks for taking the time to read this blurb about my little blog I have running. As you could see its not updated often or even updated with consistent topics. I tend to get myself interested in new and different things quite quickly–my wife says I get bored easily and cant just sit and do nothing. I tend to think that is a good quality of mine, but it also sometimes gets me in trouble since these new interests become “all-consuming” for a short period of time. I think when it does, it’s because I run into problems or obstacles which forces me to learn and conduct more research into the solution for whatever it is i’m working on at the time.
I don’t enjoy spending money on myself, and tend to think the more I learn to do on my own, the better off I am. Thats why this blog is called “Be cheap and DIY.” Go figure. But why the blog? Its quite simple really…While in the midst of my
self-learning autodidacticism (
I hope to document some of my projects, ideas, and opinions on this site given enough time, and hope that others might find them useful or interesting.
Im 36 years old and work from home in the San Francisco Bay area. I Have three kids under 7yo and work from home doing commercial video production and assorted websites.
I went to SFSU and earned a BA in Social Science, with a minor in Consumer and Family Sciences – so that’s why there may be some social ideas mixed in with the technological banter. Im deeply concerned with matters of social justice but like many people, have a hard time trying to reconcile my broader thoughts about this with my daily activities. How does one combine a day job in technology and seek to work for social justice? I still haven’t quite figured that out. If you know how, please let me know.
I am also a new parent and my family brings me much joy. I also have two rabbits named mopsey and mo who are a little anti-social (and just today, my wife and I saw them doing it like well, you know…rabbits. Which sort of traumatized my wife for some reason).
Thats about it for me, hope you enjoy this blog.
