Things from my friends

Alex is an organized productivity beast (and also a sharing, caring human)

Nevin's first minimal techno set:

Helen is quite possibly the highest quality human I know, though I am perhaps slightly biased.

She has graciously granted me permission me to publish a truly fantastic series of emails that she wrote during an adventure in India in the fall of 2002 (this is the closest I could get to a photo of her from that era).

Helen's emails from India

(I will be releasing them serially, beginning in 2022)

Spencer generates lots of interesting content about why people do what they do and think what they think.

He includes this at the bottom of each post:

Donny is a comedian who has an amazing comedy troupe that had a show on TBS — I run into his stuff on fb, but maybe they're on Twitch these days?

"Cute House" is a pretty solid intro.

(pretty sure that's his PE shirt from our high school 😂)

Tom is also an entrepreneur and is unbelievably inventive and open about his ideas and feelings and journey through life:

Allan is a dirigibles expert at the Smithsonian. His facebook feed sparks so much joy for me. He's maybe the least pretentious artist I've ever encountered (mostly manipulated photos of my favorite town of all time and sticking his own face where it doesn't belong) and he and his fb friends’ commentary are fabulously witty in a way that makes fb seem like actually a really good thing. (I "followed" him on my dad's account and I love it when I run across their banter.)

Duncan often has things to say about what's happening with people in his communities or in society that seem right to me and aren't pointed out as often as I would want, and it seems like he's doing it in a proactive trying-to-fix-it way. (He also has an impressive way of writing prosocial conciliatory dialogue that often feels out of reach until he writes it.)

I also like that he's so excited about teaching.

Logan: self-described rationality researcher, developer, and writer. I mostly get exposure through my facebook feed, but I think the tips and tricks for people on the spectrum might be useful to follow directly on their blog.

Artists (all coincidentally(?) friends from the Waldorf elementary school in my hometown)

Evan is an incredible (mostly black and white) landscape photographer who works as the curator of the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite National Park (where he's been since 2006(!)).

Sally Anne has been doing some beautiful oil and watercolor work in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. I especially love the time-lapse videos of the magic happening.

Here's a work in progress:

Emi is an artist who has been working on human skin for many years, but she’s recently started doing prints that are gorgeous.
