About My Blog

by Glen Canning

I launched this web site about twenty years ago as a way to share my life and write about the things I found interesting. As a former Apple employee some of my posts were Tech in nature, some reflected my love of photography, and some were just general posts about my travels and life.

Everything changed when my daughter Rehtaeh Parsons died in 2013. Since then I’ve changed a great deal, as has my focus on what matters and what is important, both for my site and in my life.

So, I lost a few posts and some pages along the way for various reasons; hacked once, formatting errors more times then I care to remember, database errors, etc. Throughout it all, the most important posts, the ones about Rehtaeh, are still here and I’m happy about that.
