Maker Faire 2014 NYC

1 min read


YES, the time has come again! Maker Faire is happening this weekend - September 20 & 21 at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, NY.  This will be my third time going and joined by the awesome Mk of Minuk.net.  

I love seeing the innovation of hobbyists, crafters, tech enthusiasts, and meeting new people with awesome ideas.  No matter what you're into, whether it be science, art, engineering or crafts, you'll enjoy it.  If you haven't gone to a Maker Faire, find one near you and take a look!  It's perfect for family (young and old), and friends.  Stay tuned for photos this weekend!

Known and Dreamhost

1 min read

For any other users that might be trying to set up Known with Dreamhost (Linux hosting), I had to ensure that this was changed in my .htaccess file: 


(I had to edit this post since the code would lose it's formatting.)

With the default .htaccess, I wasn't able to see certain files or connect my social accounts. I hope this helps other Dreamhost users!

Using Known

1 min read

Welcome to my rebooted site!  I've excited to get Known working on my webserver.  Known is a new social publishing platform for sharing content and discussing ideas.  I saw the creators on one of my fave podcasts, This Week in Google on the TWiT network, so I thought I'd give it a go.  I like it's simplicity so far, and it was pretty easy to set up.  I did run into a snag with my .htaccess file, but I compared it to what I used with my previous Wordpress install. I can now connect my external social apps (Twitter etc), so I'm super happy.

Happy Friday!
