This was originally the accompanying website for the radio show Web I/O that was broadcast by CINQFM on 102.3 FM and 88.3 on cable. You can still browse the archives of this site to see the topics covered on those shows.
Web I/O evolved into The Digital Life Show (TDLS) and was co-hosted by Moz Taylor and myself for a while before we moved on to other projects. It is currently being hosted by Reisa Levine of CitizenShift fame and can be heard every Saturday from 2:30pm to 3:00pm. I also had a spot on Arts Notebook, another show at CINQFM, with a weekly five minute review of art related websites. You will see the websites covered on the home page of this site, under Arts Notebook.
So, I had a year long hosting plan and this domain name going to waste, especially with TDLS having its own website. As a result, it was decided to turn Web I/O into an eclectic mix of things that I serendipitously came across on the Web, that I felt my family and friends might like.

A little about myself: A self confessed geek with a career at an unnamed Telecommunications company who quit his job to practise Permaculture. I spend a considerable amount of time with Software and Computers and all that makes techies techies! This is countered with a passion for nature, a concern for the environment and a certain sense of adventure.
My only claims to fame are:
1. Being an uncle to my bright and beautiful niece and nephew. As a side note, their mother (and my sister) blogs at Merry Medley.
2. Being the only person in my family to have visited the Amazon rainforest, among a few other environmentally significant locations.
4. Abandoning my career to pursue Permaculture.
