enemies of the good
myself, my peers

2001.01.24






   A computer manual that i helped write has won a Society of Technical Communicators award for Northern California. In case you’re not a professional writer, the STC part means top industry recognition, while the Northern California part means the competition was all of silicon valley.
   Keen.
   My company won five of six regional awards this year, with my group winning two. After a decade of solo writing, i’ve joined a worthy team.
   Bonus round.
   March 24th, the other writers and i get to attend a banquet to pick up our prizes, which have not been announced, whatever that means—but it sounds good, don’t it?—and, of course, to receive our coveted STC award certificates, suitable for framing.
   Alas, if only our current projects were so easy...









womb with a view
i made this

2001.01.22






   This web page displays the first movie i’ve ever made: a Quicktime file of my wife’s sonogram from 12/04. To view it you may need to download the free Quicktime player from Apple Computer, for example if there is only a grey box below with no controls.














   The audio track is his hearbeat. Yes, I brought a recorder to the OB appointment. Remember, I’m Soundmark, the audio guy.
   High speed websurfers may wish to click here to see a less blurry 4MB version.
