"If you live your life so as to minimize your potential hurt, you’ll endure a very dull, dreary, and cowardly existence. This is how drug addicts aim to live. Of course the pain always gets its say further down the road."
In the past decade I’ve spent many years living in Tokyo and Los Angeles, and have recently relocated to Vancouver. I’ve run hackerspaces and blog networks, an art gallery, a design firm and a record label. I’m one of the co-founders of the environmental non-profit Safecast, a Shuttleworth Fellow and have been an Associate Professor at Keio University and a Researcher at the MIT Media Lab. I take photos and make noisy ambient music under the name Delay 5000 (D5K).
