Social Media

I've moved to Mastodon for social networking. My photos get syndicated to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Flickr - so you can get the latest wherever you hang out, but I don't personally visit these sites often/ever.

I also post photos on Glass, a photography network.

Besides my photography on photog.social, I also maintain a Mastodon account on famichiki.jp, where I talk about life in Japan, US & Japanese politics, privacy, web, design, and music.
