About this site
I’m Jack Baty. I use this space mostly to write about things I'm interested in: photography, productivity, internet geekery, software, and so on. You'll also find bits of my other analog interests like vinyl records, typewriters, and other things brought on by bouts of nostalgia.
Flickr is where you'll find most of my photos
This place is generally all over the map. Please, do not expect consistency.
I started blogging in 1999 mostly as a place to post links. Recently, I've started fresh, leaving the thousands of entries orphaned over in the archives.
In 1995, I joined Steve and Bryan Lewis as a partner in their newly-minted web shop, Fusionary Media. The early days of the Internet were perfectly suited to my interests and skills. I’ve created or helped create so much stuff on the web it’s hard to keep track of them. These days I’m doing less development and more technical project management, which is fun and interesting and challenging. I’m approaching two decades of eagerly heading into the office each morning.
Before Fusionary? Let’s see, I’ve been a freelance programmer, construction worker, burger flipper, and paperboy. I expect someday I’ll end up once again as the latter.
I live and work in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I was born here and have not yet discovered a compelling reason to leave.
