A little about me
I was a partner at Fusionary Media from 1995 until we sold the company in May of 2020. I remain there in a consulting role. Fusionary is a terrific digital development studio in Grand Rapids, MI, and if your business needs something built for the web or mobile devices you should 💌 send them a note.
I blog here at baty.net ✒️. I write about photography, blogging, analog tools, productivity, software, you name it.
I take notes, daily, in public, using TiddlyWiki at Rudimentary Lathe.
You can email me at email@example.com ✉️. I still like receiving email!
I have a few other interests:
Photography. I call it “photography” but it’s more like “camera collecting.” I shoot both film and digital and upload to Flickr.
Analog. Digital is where we are, but I still enjoy using things like film cameras, vinyl records, manual typewriters, notebooks, and fountain pens.
See the Now page for a list of more specific current interests and projects.
Do not expect consistency.
