I write stuff. Sometimes it’s about technology. Sometimes it’s about movies. Other times it’s about mutant hacker bike gangsacademia, or the bureaucracy of protests. Once it was about psychopathic online commenters. Less often, it’s complete nonsense.knobs

I once traveled to Southeast Asia and rode a motorbike from Saigon to Hanoi. You can find a record of that experience here. Another time I transcribed my great grandfather’s war journal, which he kept as a captain during World War I. That can be found in its entirety at WhiningPast.com. I also created a podcast/audio documentary about the experience (with original music).

Speaking of music, I do stuff with music. You can find some of my music here, or download one of my albums (for free) here.

I like to brew beer and ride around Maine on my 2003 Honda Shadow VT750, which I call Maria. This is Maria.

    Hi, I read your article in USA today….you said that for $449 a person could get a program camera that would be more satisfying. Oops…your review was on the panasonic lumix dmc-zs40. Ok….you know a lot more than I do about cameras….If you had a friend who asked your advice…what camera would you suggest……I really appreciate your opinion……many thanks. John bresnen

    I recently read your comments about major appliance categories on the Wirecutter website.
    It was very good. I know many of the resources that you used.
    I have been in the wholesale appliance business for more that 50 years and I am still am working.
    I would love to help you with input on the categories that we sell and I think it would help you with information.
    My area of expertise is: Range hoods, ranges, refrigerators, wine cellars, gas grills, wall ovens, cooktops, garbage disposers, etc.
