The Musopen project is complete. The orchestra have finally completed their recording process and have released a full DVD of classical delights into the public domain, free of charge.

Why Ichiro’s Departure Makes This Nikkei Girl Sad

Ichiro is Japanese, not Japanese American, but seeing him at the plate reminded me of those Ansel Adams pictures, taken of Japanese American players during World War II, behind barbed wire. Ichiro was a Japanese man, succeeding wildly at an all-American pastime.

The Seattle Community Network Revives Their Commitment to the Future

It’s 1993. Unless you are locked regularly in the basements of university computer science departments, you have never heard of the World Wide Web.

From the publisher

I aim with The Seattle Star to use my pages to help rebuild our community, to use our knowledge and our limited power to bring artists together and to bring people together with artists. So far we have done this quietly, by publishing poetry, drama, radio plays and fiction alongside our essay writing. We will continue to do so, but rest assured we will expand this mission visibly over the next year.
