celebrating 49 years without a full-time job
Here in the Normill, I design and construct appliances which, unlike toasters, are
clearly pointless and useless. Hopefully they are every bit as efficient, loaded
down as they are with new technology. Here's what interests me:
- Art -- I'm an artist, sort of. Check out my
art page and decide for yourself.
- Fussy Logic -- I'm a pioneer in this. But,
sorry, I can't talk about it yet... It's still in the Development Stage.
- Teaching -- Until I retired in 2003, I taught
at the Ontario College of Art & Design,
in the Integrated Media Program. My courses were in Digital Electronics,
Computer Programming, and Mechanics for Real-Time Sculpture. I'm now teaching
similar courses at Ryerson University in Toronto. Incidentally, I started
teaching these subjects at O.C.A.D. in 1978.
- Rat-packing -- Being
attracted to obsolete tech, I collect computers that people have thrown out,
of various brands and working states. Someday I hope to bring many of them
back to life in my NorMill Personal Computer Museum.
For now I'll just keep them in a big unheated room out back.
