A few nice online support website images I found:
…And The Home Of Depraved.
This Monday, the 4th of July, the US of A celebrates its 229th year of independence from the imperial stranglehold of those rascally Brits across the pond. The way things have been going in this country lately, that may have been a hasty decision. At least the Queen Mother can say "nuclear," and crumpets do sounds tasty, don’t they?
Anyway, in the spirit of 1776, I declare my emotional/physical/spiritual/psychological independence FROM the following (in no particular order) for at least, uh, today:
– My senses (and/or sanity)
– The use of gratuitous platitudes
– Fashionable shirts
– Good judgement
– Cellular technology
– Proper dining etiquette
– Anxiety and stress
– Serious demeanor
– Non-alcoholic beverages
– Saying "OK, whatever you want"
– Being nice to rude sales people
– Holding in melodious bodily functions
– Bad cable TV
– Beneficial foodstuffs
– Less than 8 hours of sleep
– Commercial radio
– Channeling spirits
– Online communications
– Vitamin supplements
– Public transportation
– Britney Spears (re: "nightmares")
– Reading the mail
– Scrounging for a meal
– Referring to myself as "da man"
– Manual labor
– Dress shoes
– Limitations of time/space

Eat, drink, and be merry. And stay safe, kids.
See you in a few.
As a way of returning the extraordinary generosity and support you
have all shown me in this great community, whenever I upload a new
pic or series of shots this year, I’ll provide a link to another flickr
photog whose work, personality, or spirit I feel you should discover.
Visit and introduce yourself. Make a friend. Share the love.

i work on the web
This is me, and I work on the web.
I live physically in Auckland, New Zealand – and metaphorically in a community full of friends and smart people who are scattered all over the globe. Inspiration and motivation to make the web better has come from so many different faces and places. I believe in communication through the web, and I support self-publishing online – whether you call it journalling and blogging, and do it macro or micro – to the core!
I was lucky to have a geek-inclined family who introduced me to the internet at 16. IRC and online journalling were my first forays: I used to spend hours making my Geocities journal with Notepad and huge images of all my friends and family. I went to university in 1998 to become a lawyer-slash-politician, but ended up with a BA in Politics & English, a part-time job at a small webshop in Auckland and a burning desire to do and make more online.
By the time I graduated, I was several personal websites along, had vastly improved the HTML handcoding skills which got me the web job and started to move into project management. Since then I’ve worked on brands large and small, projects successful and not, and loved every minute of it.
I’m very lucky to work in a space that I love, with people who have incredible vision and passion. I am surrounded by them and I hope that I give back as much as I get. You can find me at vortex.net.nz
