Let me tell you about my grand outer-space adventures!!! | August 17, 2015
Well, okay, no, that's a lie; that's not why it's been two years since you last heard from me at my personal website. Click through for the much more mundane answer, a look at CCLaP's plans for 2016, and a check-in about my new career as a software developer.

Such a busy 2013, I never had a chance to post anything. | December 31, 2013
My first new entry in 14 months! Read an extra-long post about everything that happened to me in the event-filled 2013, and why it kept me too busy to write even a single update to this personal journal of mine. Dogs! Children! Random fast-food shootings! What more do you want?!

The game of arts administration. | July 19, 2012
Today, some thoughts on my arts center finally being in the black, how running it often feels like playing a big game, how my time in Second Life in the mid-2000s led to this little theory of small business and gaming, and why I'm looking forward to one day wagging an elderly finger at all my long-dead enemies and bragging that I won.

The plan for 2011. | December 21, 2010
It's the end of the year, time for looking both backwards and forwards; and so here is my detailed month-by-month plan for what I'd like to do in 2011 with my arts organization, the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography, hopefully adding up by the end to four new books, four issues of a new magazine, four live events, and with luck CCLaP's first-ever four-figure annual profit.

How to make money from nothing. Seriously. | June 20, 2007
Well, just a couple of weeks until the virtual photography gallery opens for my arts center, as will my first opportunity to generate revenue through CCLaP. Will it work? We'll see! Today, all the details on how I plan to do this, despite having not a penny to spend on upfront costs.

More frustrations. Another new plan. Sigh. | September 8, 2006
Well, some frustrating news to report today; that the live-event program for my arts center has gotten officially shelved until next spring. Here, a few thoughts on bitterness, optimism, electronic publishing, and why I'm looking for invites to vampire balls.

I'm thinking of scaling back this journal. | April 10, 2006
Okay, so because of a growing amount of responsibilites in other areas of my life, I'm indeed thinking about cutting back on the amount of entries written here. Today, the entire story of why. Plus: lots of new details considering "Archimedes," the alternative-reality-game "hyperfiction" project I'm creating this summer. Warning: much nerdiness ahead!

And the name of my new arts center is... | February 27, 2006
Why, it's the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography, in fact (or CCLaP for short), which I can now announce because the website's URL is finally secured. Today, the full explanation of where this name came from, and why it was chosen. Plus: two new 'jasonpettus' tags in the blogosphere, and two new audio comments! Too bad they both recorded them in a way so that I can't share them!; Google, won't you please build the "Google Crossword Helper?;" and a little help is needed regarding whether I'm doing something wrong with iTunes.

Who is Nikki Patin, and why should you care? | February 8, 2006
Today, part 3 of this week's talk about the new "lite" version of my upcoming arts center; one that will generate significantly less money, that is, but will be open for business as early as this Septmeber. Specifically, more on Nikki Patin, my new Director of Live Events; and more on our Membership and Fellowship programs.

Introducing my arts center - the "lite" version. | February 6, 2006
I've been getting so much email about it since first casually mentioning it on Friday, that I thought I'd address it head-on today: Yes, it's most likely that a "lite" version of my arts center will be open for business as soon as this September. Today, the first details of why this is.
