hello, world

I'm Michael, I've got something to say

In the 90's, there were these things called personal websites. This one's still going. Since the launch of etherlabs.net in '98, I've written about living in Japan and launching a failed business there, creating a sci-fi novel, marrying the girl of my dreams, turning 30 (and 40...), and raising a couple of lunatic but happy kids.

Nowadays I find myself writing about my projects and hobbies and kids. Oh, and risk management, which is what I do for a living; but I don't do that here.

Family; you can see the kids' website here.


I named this website emuu.net after my initials, em and double-u. I told the story of its history in my journal when I realized that I was fifteen years into this project. This site runs on a content management system that I wrote for the purpose. I'm just that much a nerd. To paraphrase the immortal Van Halen, I'm not like this because I have a website, I have a website because I'm like this.
