just in tokyo - a city guide book

so I become this, two arms renddered I can stretch an I can cook my meals and mend my pants
because I surely ain't no more high volume web page generatin' aminal
and in the words of my physical therapist it could take me months to recover that rate
when you consider that it's been only 22 months I've spent at college, 3 or 4 months realized is a larger chunk of life
especially when such grand plans depended on volume
but as my hand worker, bob markison sez
about slow voice computer input rates -
brevity is the soul of wit.
learn haiku.

foreign strains compact disc
soon pull ups and bed
alone in an office

morning dew and 10 o'clock light
measured by floor slats
howard on conference call

I am become, in his words, "howard rheingold's paid companion"
I now have hours in the day free to stretch
my problem being around technology without flirting with it.

diagnosed with two tenosynovitis
tendons and sheaths irritated from overimproperuse
like typing in the back of greyounds on cramped keyboards

as this team machinery begins sputter becomes whine becomes humm
I was going to take good notes
now I write only history of my body - man a lot to learn

an old friend visits morrow might take mind from machine

I'm justin.

this is my web site, which I've been running for over two years now. it's done me a lot of good, given me a place to share my mind

and so I've been thinking a lot about how we could best use computers and the internet.

so listen, if you want to learn about web publishing, I'd love to teach you. publishing your writings on the web is a great way to reach out to friends you don't even know you have yet.

and, it's exceedingly easy!

I'm learnin' a lot of stuff here; stuff from speakers, from college, from my friends and family, from life. stuff about sex, stuff about soul, stuff about work.

I put up a notice here in november, it said,

I feel real good about this web stuff, so I'd like to spread it around.

enough folks said alright, and invited me to their homes.

some crazy stories from bein' on the road, early summer 1996.

these days I'm taking a break from greyhounding,

still carrying my pack, as you can see

I'm living with this guy howard rheingold. he's starting a kind of a community space on the web, called electric minds, I'm helping him for a few months.
I would send you over to that web site, but there's not too much interesting to look at yet.

nice to meet you.

no thanks, I don't smoke.

I just didn't comb it for months; god is my hairstylist.

sure, feel free to click on me.

I already told you what happened the other day, right?

well last night, I had this crazy dream.
