Documentary!!!

I am STOKED to make this announcement.  A couple months back I attended a writers meet and greet.  I met several local writers and handed the project’s card out, thinking nothing of it.

A day later, a young man by the name of David contacted me.  He introduced himself as a videographer, said he loves the project, and wants to make a documentary.  For free.  *thud*

I’m sure you can imagine my excitement.

Well, the documentary is under way.  He has access to 100% of the footage I took while on the national tour, and will be shooting b-roll of a few interviews I have scheduled this month.  Stay tuned for more!

Final Map for National Tour

Furkot Map

I’m so excited to show you the map for the National Tour!  I found a fancy pants website called Furkot that helps generate a road trip map and find places to see and stay along the way.  Perfect!

  • Colorado
  • Connecticut
  • Delaware
  • DC
  • Georgia
  • Idaho
  • Kansas
  • Indiana
  • Kentucky
  • Massachusetts
  • Missouri

How the Internet Changes our Brains

This is the whole point of this project.  I’m studying how we’ve changed due to technology by interviewing people who lived before it.  This infographic studies how the brain PHYSICALLY changes, and the personality pathologies that go along with it, due to internet use.  The comments my interviewees have made align exactly with the findings displayed in this infographic.
