in which I write about stuff

what’s this?

Faux library card catalog card describing this site.

My name is Elaine Nelson; I’ve been keeping this site in one form or another since 1998. I currently live in Olympia, Washington USA. You can contact me through epersonae – at – gmail – dot – com.

This site is part personal journal, part log of interesting links, part experimentation zone. [through the last teens, it’s mostly just been automatic blog posts of my knitting projects]

I write about my personal life, although there’s plenty that I leave out. I write occasionally about my professional life, but not about people, and of course nothing I say here should be expected to have any relationship to official policy of my employer, etc., etc., etc.

I curse from time to time.

Everything I write, and all the photographs that appear here, are copyright me. Except where they’re comments from somebody else, in which case everybody retains their own rights. Whee!

  • This site is created using WordPress.
  • The “Snapping Links” category is fed by pinboard. (The original Snapping Links was a whole separate blog, back when I was using Moveable Type. But it was too much bother.) [does this still work? I don’t even remember. 10/2018]
  • The book reviews are fed by Goodreads.
