"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."
Most of the time I live in Los Angeles, though I spend a lot of time in Tokyo too. I've run hackerspaces and blog networks, an art gallery, design firm and a record label. I'm one of the co-founders of Safecast, and currently act as Global Director. I'm a Shuttleworth Fellow, an MIT researcher and sit on the board of CicLAvia.
