OzoneFarm is a silly word that helped me get through the 80’s. Now it simply represents a temperament that keeps me from taking myself too serious.
I indeed have my head in the clouds most of the time, but I also know that there’s work to be done. The original “virtual workplace” idea that I wrote about in 2001 has now found expression in g+ and openGIS thus I seem to have been swept up by the wave. But I’m alive and well and still on the job – protecting the network from greedy leeches, wolves in sheeps’ clothing, hideous beasts and lonely deviants. (A cowboy’s work is never done.)
To this day, my path remains before me. It matters not one iota to the path who is walking, but whether we meet, cross or merge, our paths will surely come together.
Current physical location: Fairmont Farm and Studio – the signal source for the authentic versions of the code and access to the command line terminal of the machinery of community. As we witness the finality of the disconnected world, the next world unfolds before our eyes and ears. Hearing is believing. Right?
