This site started 20 years ago as a means to document
random art, technology, films, ridiculous Internet findings and, occasionally,
to have a place to express some personal musings. Oddly enough, the focus
still hasn't changed much in that time.
My name is Michael Eades; an Internet dweller who has dabbled in design, development, product management, online social experimentation and curation in many forms.
Current day job is at Vimeo (formerly VHX) but on the side, I run a boutique label called yk records and a podcast network, We Own This Town, that showcases Nashville area talent.
Previously, I spent 12 years doing development work with KNI and, before that,
ran the website for the small indie Spongebath Records.
As noted, this site is an archive of ephemera I find entertaining. In it's eleventh iteration I've found myself leaning away from trying to do any sort of insightful long-form writing as I've never been as eloquent as a kottke or waxy (tho, a boy can dream). That may happen from time to time but this is meant to be a rest stop along the Information Superhighway, a brief respite of entertainment.
This site is built on top of a custom PHP backend, the Foundation grid
on the frontend and various bits of duct tape and glue elsewhere provided by Zapier.
Typeface is Circular and system friendly, depending on where you're coming from.
This is the eleventh official iteration of this site, published on Dec. 31st, 2019.
for the record: "yewknee" is a nonsensical word with no literal meaning. It is pronounced, "you knee."
