Blog-Tag

Posted on Jan 14, 2007

I’m finally getting around to playing blog tag after being offline and on vacation, then busy with clients again. Thanks to both Deb Schultz and Lisa Stone who tagged me a few weeks ago, spreading the game initiated by Jeff Pulver.

So, five things you many not know about me:

1. I’m lucky to have traveled or lived in many parts of the world by the time I was 16, including Africa, Holland, England, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, China, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Hong Kong, Jordan, and Egypt.

2. While I’m a self-proclaimed city girl, I love the outdoors and wild places. I know how to roll a white water kayak, and I’ve climbed 21 of the 46 High Peaks in the Adirondack mountains.

3. Before going digital, I spent most my design time as an artist and sculptor dedicated to making art: mixed media installations, time-based installations and objects, metal sculpture, bronze casting, wax and metal work, photography, analog and digital video.

4. I’ve been a vegetarian for 15 years and take photos of the food I eat.

5. I had a shaved head in college. Max was there :)

And, now, I’m tagging the following five people, all of whom are in my feed reader and three of whom I’ve met. Each is radically different in style and focus, but that’s what I like – an eclectic/hybrid set of influences.

Lawrence Lessig
Mochipopstar
Peter Merholz
Anne 2.0
Mrs. Mogul

UPDATE: Jan 15: Jeff Pulver posts “Blog-Tag” – A Game to Chart the Social Sculpture of the Blogosphere.

    Damn, those vegetarian dishes sure look delicious :)

    Could I ask why you became a vegetarian?

    They were/are delicious! I became vegetarian when I was around 19. Meat never appealed to me that much, but I did eat it and didn’t give it much thought. One day while eating a hamburger, I realized that I found it incredibly distasteful. I switched to a vegetarian diet and over the years have mostly become vegan (no animal products). Later, I did more research about the benefits of not eating meat (health reasons, environmental benefits) and am convinced that it’s a much better way to live (at least for me).
