Food justice - Public Growing

Based on voluntaryism principles of taking neither government nor corporate money, I am trying to build a web application for allowing people to grow food in open, public space for free. And I need help!

We need someone to do the database and object model and Node.js hosting. If you want to get involved, please contact my gmail: dhtmlkitchen.

Guitar Improvisation Class

I want to teach a class on Rock Guitar Improvisation.

I want to do this because I believe I will be good at it and because I am angry at the expensive music school that puts money and marketing before education.

Kids who went to Berklee because they were inspired by Steve Vai got govt-paid "financial aid" plus student loans to pay for it, then finished only to have $80,000+ student loan debt, which they slavishly repay over the next 10-20 years, working a job that requires a "bachelor's degree".

There is no good reason why the cost of music school must be so high.

Stuff I like

Guitar

I like to play and teach. Some of my musical influence include J.S. Bach, Paul Gilbert, and Yngwie Malmsteen.

Exercise

Currently studying martial arts (not so good at). In the past, strength training (very good at) and parkour (not so good at).

Skills

JavaScript

I wrote many articles on former dhtmlkitchen.com, comp.lang.javascript newsgroup, and the c.l.js FAQ.

I've built things for companies where marketing needs weren't necessarily geared towards generating actual value to the world.

Massage

Professionally trained at School of Traditional Thai Massage. I practice deep work, ideal for those who exercise hard (like me).
