Your host Bryant Durrell is a manager, a system administrator, a writer, a political observer, a gamer, a movie buff, and a collector. Most of these find their way into the blog eventually. He lives in San Francisco with his wife and three cats.

I started this blog (using Movable Type, for the record) back in 2002. In 2007, after a hard drive crash, I recovered the blog but somewhat moodily decided to move blogging over to LiveJournal and Imaginary Vestibule. That never really worked out right for me, so I am now merging the Vestibule and a side blog I was running for my 101 things in 1,001 days back into Population: One. Cogs will stay unmerged.
