I'm Dan Rasmussen. danrasmussen.org is my way to tell the world what I'm up to, and also serves as a showcase of things I've made. Here you'll find my blog, my web design portfolio, my geo-resume, and software I created.
In the last year I've divided my time between Iowa and Portland, Oregon and also done some traveling. I spent a good amount of time outdoors, and working on projects that interest me. I endeavor to live in an environmentally-sustainable manner, and enjoy helping others to do the same.
In the past year I've volunteered a significant amount of time with the Personal Telco Project and at the Bike Farm. I've also become interested in OpenStreetMap in a big way. OpenStreetMap is a map of the world that anybody can improve. People can use OpenStreetMap map data for almost anything they want -- unlike most maps and map data. You're not forced to use any particular website, mobile app, GPS vendor's devices or software, or to have a mobile internet connection. Free data leads to lots of delightful variety and possible uses. Personally, I used OpenStreetMap to create a map of free and open wifi in Portland, Oregon. I've made some contributions to the OpenStreetMap data and plan to do much more.
Have a look around the site, and drop me a line if you like.
