"Retired" Projects

Gone - Knowledge Tree Flash

Knowledge Tree Flash Media ?

It's sad but my Flash-authored interactive narratives have been retired. For some time now, Google Chrome and all the other major browsers no longer support Flash and with the majority of internet traffic mobile-based, Flash-authored media is unfortunately obsolete.

Back in the day (wow—more than a decade ago!) My Peak Oil Project out-ranked equivalent online research posted by generously-funded Think Tanks and all my media work felt tremendously valuable. But I've moved on as well with blogs, a deeper focus on railroad history and most importantly - a return to music.
