What really happened to Emery Taylor?

Note:  I’d like to welcome those of you visiting this site from the forums at aidsmed.com.  This may be the first time that a mainstream AIDS site has referred to this blog as a “clear-eyed ‘alternative hypothesis’ site,” and I’m flattered.  Given that, I hope you will look around a bit.

Still angry after all these years

My role as a gay AIDS activist was first featured in a special report on AIDS in the Kansas City Times, July 8, 1989. I recently unboxed some of the early media accounts of my life as an openly gay AIDS activist in Kansas City.  The very first words in the very first article ever […more]

Life in a database

Most of my work the last few decades have involved that interface… that point of contact between human beings and the computer. I’ve written previously about my earliest experience with computers in the 1970s, while still in high school, where I advocated for the first computer programming course at Colby High School.  We ran our […more]
