What I've Been Up To

I haven’t read or written anything in any language other than “computer” for about 9 or 10 months. See, back in April 2007 I decided to start a business! It’s called metalabel.com, and we sell music online for independent artists. I’m putting my money where my mouth is. I think we can do it better than any corporation, and certainly better than any other online distributor, and I think we’ll have greater social impact, too, because we’re coming with the right attitude.

But of course this takes pretty much most of my time nowadays. I work a full-time job, too! It’s gonna be a long time before I can write again, I fear.
