Hello and welcome! My name is Harmon Gale. This website is the result of prompting by a professor who taught a Media Analysis course I took years ago. Professor Gillmor encouraged us (by making us buy a domain name) to build a home base on the web, a place of our own that’s unfiltered by the demands of social media platforms. Sean Bonner, an entrepreneur and part-time superhero, explains it another way here:

[W]hen it comes to your personal relationship to the web, do you have a corner of it that’s yours? Or are you just a visitor leaving little pieces of yourself on other sites?

Welcome to my little corner of the web. I hope you enjoy your stay, visit often, and let me know what you think.
