Hi. My screen name is Number Kay. I'm a writer. I make games, and I used to do theater shows in tiny venues. Now I work at several of the large venues around town to pay rent.
I've had a lot of jobs over the years to support my creativity: dish washer, retail packing and shipping and all kinds of warehouses. I've driven forklifts, been a notary, and I once spent six months behind the drive-through window at a Wendy's, saving up to move back to San Francisco.
That's where I live, with my wife and a tuxedo cat. I was born here too, at what's now called "Zuckerburg" San Francisco General Hospital. Since then, I've watched the home of hippies and weirdos become the heart of Silicon Valley and shatter the whole world into tiny, ad-fueled echo chambers.
I took a web design class once, in 1996, back when the internet promised to create an open system of free association and creativity. Now we have a web where even personal websites all use corporate templates. That's why I created this website -- this abandoned interactive TV kiosk -- as much by "hand" as possible.
Those in power try to reduce the rest of us to mere numbers. My given name is Timothy Kay, but I hope my work will help you remember that each one of us "numbers" is still an individual.
This program was brought to you today by the Number Kay.
