A little about me

Your host, Jack Baty

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 jack@baty.net ✉️. 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.


Weblogs and other publishing experiments


  • Flickr - I’ve been posting photos to Flickr since forever. Flickr is still the best photo sharing service, and I’m looking forward to what’s next now that it’s owned by SmugMug.
  • I’ve been using SmugMug again recently for various galleries.
