I had hoped that it might be a more or less formal […]

Ron Swafford produced a movie about pedicab life in Austin, Texas. It’s a great flick and especially good considering it is his first film.

While nothing that gets published on the internet is really ever “private”, there are ways to have a “less public” discussion. At the request of a couple of people, I have created a members only discussion forum. While I hope that we will be able to have some free-wheeling off the cuff and candid chat, […]
