Interestingideas.com is my project. It began as a photo-copied newsletter in 1989 and reached the world via the Web in 1994, a sobering example of the Internet’s transparency to marginal notions. It was a personal test bed for online publishing as well as an outlet for thoughts on vernacular art, oddball culture, politics and other random topics.
I write, edit, photograph and produce 99 percent of the site. Despite the presence of Google advertising, it is nearly 99 percent non-profit, though I’m open to other ideas. Recent pages are published on the WordPress platform. Older parts of the site still reside in the hard-coded html I started with back in ’94.
You can find out more about me and my professional life on Linked In: https://www.linkedin.com/in/williamswislow.
Briefly, I spent much of my career in journalism; migrated to digital publishing and, eventually, the business side of media; helped found the Cars.com Web site and spent many years leading its product organization and, later, technology as well.
Since I own almost all the creative work on the site, feel free to contact me about reuse. I’m also available for consulting engagements. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
