TIP: A Money Wiki
The Online Journalism Review has started a wiki where online journalists can share tips about how to make money with online publishing. There is good information there already; no doubt it will get better.
I live on an old farm out in the country, with views of trees, a river, and big sky. But my views extend a lot further than that, thanks to two satellite dishes mounted on the roof, one of which is for high-speed Internet. I am deeply attached to my physical home, and always hope to have one foot firmly planted in our red mud. But I also like to spend time out on the Web, making spaces where I can keep in touch with friends, share information, and be part of the greatest experiment in interconnectivity that has ever happened on this planet. I hope you will find these experiences helpful in your own adventures on the Internet.
Burned out after more than 20 years as a Chicago journalist, in 1993 I moved to Seattle and began designing wildlife-friendly gardens and natural landscapes. Now I live on my own 250 acres of land in the Acadian Forest region of the Northeast; I am making a home both here and, increasingly, on the Internet. Having had a well-misspent life, I now have the time to indulge my interests: food, plants, critters, ecology, technology, philosophy.
