Aria’s Page

I'm Aria. This page is pretty intentionally spartan: it is more than anything a repository with permanent URLs for things I'm discussing with friends and coworkers, for projects and notes.

I generally file things by date — 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.

If you really want to know more about me, here goes: I'm a child of the eighties. I run a small internet service provider in southwestern Colorado. I spend my days answering phones and emails and trying to keep enough time to be the system administrator, too.

I'm the oldest of four children. I've been unschooled for the majority of my learning. I left school after my fourth grade year, what looked to quite likely be the high point of my school education for many years to come. I haven't looked back, and it's become a deep part of who I am.

I'm interested in nearly everything. I read every piece of information I come across. Study is natural to me. I'm happiest when I'm creating things. I sew, I draw, I play with photography, I play the cello. I study fractals and distributed information systems and physics and chemistry and social relationships on all levels.

Some of the fun stuff in my web repository includes a little design for the &hate; contest, photos of a flight over the Black Canyon of the Gunnison and the Cimarron Ridge, wallpapers (Share and share alike license), photos of a hike up the Blue Lakes Trail in the Mt. Sneffels Wilderness, and other photos I really like.

I work on a variety of open-source projects, among them gurgitate-mail, Camping at the Mailbox, and several others.
