If you're a friend of Satan, you're a friend of mine. I was friends with this guy when we were five.
N. J. Natsuya is a former classmate from my 2007 struggles with the Japanese language. He knows too much about this former class dunce (now the dunce of a larger class). He writes (very well, damn him) about life in Japan.
A multi-talented young man I'll just summarize as a photographer.
Jeff Hamilton is a Toronto-area philosopher and an interesting character. Ten years ago I hosted his long-running collection of essays and photos that is now an accomplished, coherent body of work that shames my humble stuff.
Gordon Macleod At Large
In the early days of Web 1.0 I worked with Mr. Macleod at the first iteration of imoney.com, a successful start-up that was Canada's first online financial presence. All these millennia later, and here we are, both dads with websites. Except that he understands the process of writing. And the use of whitespace.
A freelance writer with whom I worked when we were both in IT (sadly, it took me rather a lot longer to get out than it did him). He's written from many homes over the year, including the Belgium, the UK, Sudan, and (now) Italy.
A Halifax-based musician I worked with not once but twice, and who promises to update his site any time now. In the meantime, he's got some samples of his wares online.
Lone Lee Planet
Lee is an Aussie, and I hold that against him for the most part. Also, jealousy over the topical blogging.
A Japan-focused Japanese blogging community guide.
I don't know these people, but I note that they have have content that is similar to emuu.net in one way or another.
Tokyo-based American and photographer. A fellow Pentaxian, too!

A Swedish researcher living in Osaka, and another fellow Pentax photographer.
