All About Jared

You Are Here

Howdy howdy! I’m Jared, an award-winning essayist, Rubyist, and podcaster who’s been commenting on and building for the web since Mosaic was a thing. (Yup, it’s true! 😆)

In my spare time I travel around Portland and the Pacific Northwest (pandemic lockdowns notwithstanding) and make artsy-fartsy videos. 📹 📺

This is my home on the internet. I hope you enjoy browsing around! 📍

P.S. You can find out more about me or subscribe to my occasional email newsletter.

As many speeches and pundits have been saying today, Democracy has prevailed. We had the worst president of the modern age wreak havoc on our institutions and public discourse, make a mockery of peaceable faith, and all but destroy global alliances.

And yet…. Today we begin anew.

Incredible hiking trails up at Beacon Rock State Park along the Columbia River Gorge. I went there to climb Beacon Rock itself, but the trails were closed. However, it was a blessing in disguise, because the mountains north of the gorge are simply breathtaking. #washingtonexplored

#Apple #iPhone 12 mini mini review:

My love affair with the iPhone has returned. It’s been a ways down on the list for some time, bested by iPad Pros & Macs alike. But this device has captivated me. I love just holding it and carrying it around in my grip.

Yay for retro iPhone 5 vibes!

Fresh Fusion Big Tech is Too Powerful. So…Now What?

In the wake of last week's horrific events at the United States Capitol where domestic terrorists stormed into the building and nearly toppled a duly-elected Congress, one of the top questions on everyone's mind is: what is the role of Big Tech in the face of extremism and anti-democratic conspiracy theories? What should Twitter, or Facebook, or Amazon, or Google, etc., be doing about all this? Do we even want them making unilateral descisions at such fundamental levels which affect policy making and political discourse? And just where did this violent strain of conservative evangelicalism come from anyway? All this and more right here on the Fresh Fusion podcast.
