What’s It About, Alphie

A brief note, as people frequently ask me what the name of the site means. Originally it was a prank on my friend who was working at the Online Journalism Review back in the late 90s and had launched his now long gone blog dangerous monkey.

I’ve had this site since February 2000, when I lived in NYC and blogging was just getting its legs.

It’s been a sporadic place since then, moving with me to Seattle and now in 2020 moving to Connecticut. Sometime in 2009 maybe I abandoned the site for awhile and subsequently had to re-up under the .net versus .com domain, but here we are.

Somehow it has survived and I still have the desire to write about art and artmaking.
