A Quick FAQ
So who are you anyway?
Ah, so you speak for the Cato Institute?
Nope. My opinions are my own, and they shouldn’t be taken to represent my employer. I write here purely as a private citizen.
Didn’t you used to write at positiveliberty.com?
So what happened?
Our web host’s quality of service declined dramatically in late 2009, culminating in the loss of our domain name to a squatter through no fault of our own. By that point we’d already lost about half of our readership owing to the repeated and extensive downtime. It pained me, but I determined that the domain name wasn’t worth fighting over.
The data, however, is safe, and there is some chance that the old site will return, headed up by one of the other PL bloggers. At the moment I am not actively working toward that goal. I blog so I can write, not so I can spend time talking to customer service.
(Update, March 4: The site has limped back to life, for now. I’ll be writing there as well, or at least trying to.)
Are you here for good, or just as a guest blogger?
I plan to be here for good.
What are your interests?
Libertarian political thought, futurism, science fiction, marriage and family policy, and religion.
How do you tie all that together?
So tell me all about your personal life!
I’m married. To a guy. He’s an aerospace engineer, and we’ve been together for going on twelve years now. We got hitched in 2003, which is earlier than nearly anyone else in a same-sex marriage. We went to Canada to do it, so we’ve really been the guinea pigs in the whole social experiment. Last year we adopted a newborn daughter. I try to respect my family’s privacy, so you won’t see too many baby pictures from me.
Would you be interested in writing for [insert other venue here]?
Perhaps. E-mail me and we’ll talk. It’s my first name dot my last name at gmail.com.
