Here in the Normill, I design and construct devices which, unlike toasters, are
clearly pointless and useless. Hopefully they are every bit as efficient,
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 -- From 1978 to 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.
From 2003 to 2016 I taught similar courses at the
Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson University) in Toronto.
- 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.
