a lil intro
I’m Dave Polaschek. Been blogging on and off since 1995, when I started using frontier to write “Dave’s Picks,” a “best of the web” kind of thing that morphed into an extended personal website, and included a book on making mead (which I also published in paper). Along the way, I wrote my own CMS in a mix of PHP, C, and /bin/sh. Web 1.0, baby.
I also took a bunch of photos, and worked on a photo editing application you may have heard of. I’m now retired and spending as little time as possible with “real computers,” and I have reminders set on my iPhone to tell me to power up my Mac twice a year so the SSD doesn’t lose its mind due to no electricity refreshing its memory.
Much older stuff at Dave’s Picks
my likes include
Woodworking, cooking, philosophy, wine, photography.
