After a mild complaint from another Justin Katz, with whom I’ve been communicating since I discovered his band online in 1999, that I was only using justinkatz.com as a forwarding site to Dust in the Light, which at this point is essentially a manual summary feed of what I write here and elsewhere, I felt I should put something more useful at the coveted URL. (To be fair, Justin’s complaint followed my mild jibe about his sparse use of his Twitter account in our name.) I’ve also been concerned that job and other prospects who found their way to any one of my sites would be led primarily to my controversial-in-this-region political opinions.
So, I came up with a concept and have been putting the new site together as I’ve been able. So far, I’ve gotten up a bunch of carpentry pictures, op-ed-style commentary that I’d written up to the middle of 2005, and PDFs of my books. I’m trying to make sure that I flesh out one “exhibit” per day. (The ones that I’ve done will shade in blue when you mouse over them on the timeline.)
Even though it’s a work in progress, I welcome any feedback that might occur to anybody to offer.
