One of my long-overdue projects has been to update my journalism Web site. In addition to my work here at the Index, I've also done a fair amount of freelance writing for a variety of magazines. Most of the articles appear on newsstands for a month and then disappear -- or wind up in a pile of clips on my desk at home.
Earlier this year, I decided to collect and scan many of those clips as part of an overall Web site revamp. To help with that project, I hired Angela Jossy of local "$100 Per Day" fame to scan and save my articles. The project is still on-going (Angela picked up another stack of magazines yesterday), but I thought I would share some of my favorite/notable articles now that they are online:
- The Wheel World -- A feature article about Seattle's bike messengers ( Link )
- Finding Innocence -- A feature article about the University of Washington's Innocence Project and its work in helping to exonerate a Yakima man through DNA testing after he spent 10 years in prison ( Link )
- Where the Wild Things Are -- A feature article about human encounters with wildlife in urban Western Washington ( Link )
- Capitol Hill Murders: One Year Later -- A feature article about a victim and family members impacted by a 2006 massacre in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood ( Link )
- Going the Distance -- A feature profile of Seattle ultra-marathoner Scott Jurek ( Link )
For more clips, check out the Web site here.
