In a few short weeks, our baby, who is not even born, will own more things than we do. He’s already well on his way. After a suprise baby shower in Connecticut this weekend and several scattered items besides, we’re grateful that his room is filling up fast with gifts from people who have never […]
Glenn Reynolds has a great new article up on TechCentralStation about the power of horiztonal knowledge and how it has changed the world in the past 10 years- With email, weblogs, bulletin boards, etc., I could, if the topic interested enough people, put together an overnight coalition – a flash constituency – without leaving the […]

Tyson was convicted of raping Desree Washington in 1992, and the piece spent much time […]
Hoo ha! Today is the first day of jasonclarke.org. After two years of owning the domain name and doing nothing with it, I’ve finally got something here. Mostly, I think we’ll be using this site to publish photos we’ve taken (or that have been taken of us), so hit up the photos section, and be […]
