I put a webcam up at my place in Homer, Alaska. You can access it via my about me page or – thanks to Rob Shurtleff (who recommended the webcam to me in the first place) – on Zeitcam.com (it’s listed as the Homer Webcam and there’s a pretty neat time lapse option.) It turns out there’s a second webcam in Homer pointing at the Augustine Volcano. As you can see, it’s been a shitty weather day here, but I managed to pound out a 15 mile run, finish off The Stolen Child, and enjoy The Devil Wears Prada. In case you are curious, the camera is a StarDot NetCam Megapixel – it’s a remarkable device that includes a Linux server and an Ethernet Port.

Senator Ted Stevens – the senior ranking Alaska senator, longest serving Republican in the Senate, and king of Alaska pork – is regularly on the front page of the Anchorage newspaper (usually praising him for the great things he does for Alaska.) He made news of a different kind last week concerning his statements about net neutrality.
According to bLaugh, the Stevens development team is currently working on “an Internet Cerfboard.”
Every now and then someone asks why I spend a chunk of time in the summer in Homer, Alaska. Amy took a few pictures that tell most of the story.
That’s the view from the living room. Now – turn your head right.
On a clear day, you can see Mount Iliamna. That dude is 200 miles away and rises about 10,000 feet out of the ocean. Now – go left.
Voila – the Grewingk Glacier. Make sense?
The view from our living room window. Enough said.
