Lately I’ve been living mostly in the Flickr/Last FM area and on the Blogipelago but I am a vivid traveler. I have day passes to del.icio.us and Wikipedia and I always enjoy a good swim in the Sea of Culture and the Ocean of Subculture.

    On map, ive been living in the IRC isles, Gulf of YouTube (just touristing there), the occasional visit to YTMND, a permanent residence in the tiny eastcoast nation of OkCupid, and I’ve done some touring through the p2p shoals.

    Off map, I live in Utopia :p
