welcome
Welcome to my little corner of the internet.

akardam.net has evolved over the years. It has usually included a collection of my projects, in varying states of completeness, photos of people & places & things in my life, and sometimes random thoughts from my stream of conciousness, though my ability to maintain a journal suffers mostly from my lack of something interesting to say on a regular basis.

Anyway, if you're reading this I'm glad you've come across it and as always I hope you find something interesting or amusing here before your travels take you down another random set of tubes.


fortune:
Writers who use a computer swear to its liberating power in tones that bear
witness to the apocalyptic power of a new divinity. Their conviction results
from something deeper than mere gratitude for the computer's conveniences.
Every new medium of writing brings about new intensities of religious belief
and new schisms among believers. In the 16th century the printed book helped
make possible the split between Catholics and Protestants. In the 20th
century this history of tragedy and triumph is repeating itself as a farce.
Those who worship the Apple computer and those who put their faith in the IBM
PC are equally convinced that the other camp is damned or deluded. Each cult
holds in contempt the rituals and the laws of the other. Each thinks that it
is itself the one hope for salvation.
-- Edward Mendelson, "The New Republic", February 22, 1988
