Hello, I'm your host, Jack Baty.
A little about me
I’ve been a partner at Fusionary Media since 1995. Fusionary is a terrific digital studio in Grand Rapids, MI. If your business needs something built for the web or mobile devices you should send us a note.
I blog here at copingmechanism.com ✒️
I've also been having a ball at my new wiki: Rudimentary Lathe.
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org ✉️. I still like receiving email!
I have a few other interests:
Photography. I call it “photography” but it’s more like “camera collecting.” I shoot both film and digital and upload to Flickr
Analog. Digital is where we are, but I still enjoy using things like film cameras, vinyl records, manual typewriters, notebooks, and fountain pens.
See the Now page for a list of more specific current interests and projects.
Do not expect consistency.
