Online, on-the-ground, always-on for social change agents and other cool people

About Me

Online Community Director, and Nonprofit Commons in Second Life. I like Rockstars of all persuasions and flavors, tech, music and otherwise. I break things.

In this blog you will find a collection of what I am thinking about and what I am reading. It’s in part a mnenomic device to help me remember not only what I am finding in my research and web distractions, but also to help me remember what I am thinking about those memes.
