"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."
I’ve been living in Tokyo for the last 3 years, previously from Los Angeles. 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 Safecast, and currently act as Global Director. I’m an Associate Professor at Keio University, a Shuttleworth Fellow and sit on the board of CicLAvia. I make noisy ambient music under the name Delay 5000 (D5K).
