It took me a long time to accept the Mac. The first fax I saw blew me away; how can a drawing come over the phone line? Then I got dragged into blogging. After a few years, I’m finally comfortable with it; it satisfies my compulsion to communicate (and publish pix). I skipped Facebook and MySpace, but Twitter beckoned. I’m still in the novice stage, but enthralled — 140 max spaces means you write tight, good writer’s exercise. Perfect for my stream-of consciousness discoveries. Tweets go thru my mind all day long, always have. Trying to get some of them down without taking too much time, still gotta make a living. Right now I follow v. few people on Twitter. No extra time. It’s pretty much an output device for me. Jeez, what I can find on Google! You know, it’s a pretty goddamn interesting time on this planet right now!

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.
