I am constantly amazed by the sheer volume of material that is available via the Internet. It has truly changed man's ability to communicate. Instead of trying to get a letter printed in a local newspaper, you can now register a domain name, publish your material on the web and seed a few search engines with a pointer to your site. I've learned a lot form the web sites I've visited and admired the artwork, poetry and prose of countless, anonymous artists and writers. Even famous people, the ones you used to have to admire from afar, have set up their own sites. From legends like Sid Caesar to contemporary celebrities like Wil Weaton, personal web sites have made it possible to reach out, at least cybernetically, like never before.
OK, enough with the fancy philosophical talk. I wanted to get on the bandwagon. My collection of digital photos was growing and I was getting fairly adept at turning some of them into artwork. I carry my latest work in my backpack everyday and show them to my friends but I wanted more. My own web site seemed like the best way to show off my work and give a little something back to the web folks who helped me by posting tips and tutorials.
