Matte Elsbernd web publisher. writer. photographer. 23 years experience.
The web has always attracted me as a way to express my ideas. My ideas come in many shapes and sizes. Whether it's visual, verbal or programmatical, I've found some way to explore them, whether it turned into an actual website, stopped as a small demo, or remains simply an (not so) used idea that is waiting for someone else to take up and run with.
The sites/projects below are pretty much 100% my work from idea to writing, design, development, etc. I think it's a pretty impressive list, but it's still just a sliver of the ones I've wanted to build.

The Tribe of Woolgatherers (March 1, 2010)
Big Burst of Traffic
I was (figuratively) awoken by a flood of traffic to my little site The Tribe of Woolgatherers. It was a steady stream of people subscribing to join the email list. 115 have signed up at last count, after 2 years with not a single new subscriber. One can't blame people, there hasn't been a posting to the list in nearly 6 years.

But now I might just have to do something about it, thanks to being mentioned in a high-volume email list, the people have come to check out the collection of jokes I started in 1992.

Hope you enjoy!
