Stark Insider: Celebrating 10 years of San Francisco arts, indie film, music and wanderlust (Video)

10 years ago Loni and I started Stark Insider. I opened up a Netscape browser, loaded something called Typepad and "wrote" this piece of profundity.  I guess we still haven't really grown up, refusing to leave the creative bubble this site affords our lives.

Stark Insider Music Video: ‘Daydreaming’ by Radiohead ft. Loni Stark

Nexus 6P: Finally a really, really good Android camera

Finally! After a short working vacation I've come to a somewhat shocking, even revelatory conclusion: The Nexus 6P camera is actually very good. That's after using Android-based smartphones for the better part of the last eight years. And every one with a sub-par camera. It all started with the (superb) Motorola Droid in...
