Welcome to my site. Here you will find some info about me, the things I do and a listing of upcoming (and past) presentations and lectures. While I initially expected most of my posts to be about Open Source/Free Software (hence the name), these days it's mostly rants and ramblings about running.

we went to see Jenna's parents today which as usual included Jenna getting a trim from her step-mom. the discarded hair looks a bit like blue moss or fungus. I hope it makes a nice addition to some bird's nest.

Jenna and I went down to Liberty Square/Zuccotti Park today. They were doing a big thanksgiving food kitchen/occu-pie event and it seemed like the perfect way to spend part of the day.

It was a bit odd considering how packed/dynamic that space was last time I visited. Very low-key, not a huge crowd, but they had plenty of food to give out.

Jenna did a better job than I can giving an overview of what was there http://lowereastsidelibrarian.info/occupy-thanksgiving and my full set of photos is at http://www.flickr.com/photos/ericgoldhagen/tags/occupie/

Today's photo is police barricades reinforced with plastic handcuffs, a fine icon of the waste and overreaction of the City to the OWS protests.

got there right after FDNY put out the fire

yeah, it's not a trash photo but seagulls eat trash, right? that's close enough.
