I have the honor of announcing that Jefferson-Madison Regional Library (JMRL) has agreed to let me speak in a free technology series in their beautiful downtown location.

If you have a topic or a venue that you'd like covered, please contact me, and let's make that happen.

what should I do with my life cc-by lemasney
What should I do with my life? These are 10 answers I gave, in no particular order of importance. I assume that the conversants are all already subject to the normal propaganda and ideologically-coercive forces that society offers, and so I try to sidestep major social, religious, political, or diversity oriented issues. Instead I try to remind them that we are all the same: a ambulatory pile of connected universal elements with the miraculous evolutionary gift of self-awareness.

Nature and bricks and sunlight square by lemasney
I will likely write about my new path once a week or once a month. I'll share photos when appropriate, I think my work will change, but I still love to help people and teach.

Thanks to all of my friends for understanding and trusting that I have not lost my mind, I just let go of my stuff.
