Meet the Flockers: Tim Carmody

Deron said he was going to offer me a Clusterflock login before he heard I got a job, so I said, crap, don’t let that stop you, I blog all over. Color me Flocked.


1. I’m a media and technology writer;
2. I have a BA in Math and a PhD in Comparative Literature;
3. I was born in Detroit in 1979 and (mostly) live in Philadelphia (since 2002);
4. I sometimes write at kottke.org;
5. I almost always write at snarkmarket.com;

7. I think chicken is delicious.

I’m happy to be included in my favorite social network that isn’t one.

Ask me anything.

    If someone wants to make ginger cookies in the shape of the c’flock logo I’d buy some. I’ll talk to Danny, I might need new work over the winter.

    Deron, are gluten free ginger cookies dessert? Or a snack? Would you buy them? If they were high-fiber and sugar-free? Can they taste good? (I’ll have to consult Danny.)

    Can a business model be built on seasonally available (e.g. winter only) gluten free ginger cookies in the shape of the c’flock logo?

    Don’t mind me. I’m brain-storming. And conducting market research. All y’all’s input is welcome.

    Look at that fantastic little boy! You too, Tim. So, math AND comparative lit. I can see why you blog all over. So I guess you know about things like Fermat’s Last Theorem and can wax eloquent too?

    @Carole: It’s true. I even got to teach a class at Penn a while back on math & writing. We read Douglas Hofstadter’s Gödel, Escher, Bach.

    @Sheila: Damn right.

    Welcome Tim! Love your work. Rick, we should bake some gingersnaps. I have a mold we can make a cookie cutter out of.

    I don’t know. I mean, like… he said. I ran into a ladder with my face the other day. It SEEMS improbable. No, very likely.

    Did you see that video about the game of thrones special effects? I diiiiid.

    Like, he’s at some Hollywood party with piles of coke right now. I am reminded of Woody Allen sneezing into the coke and it flying everywhere. I kind of got into it tonight with someone at a different party. Told them How To Live. I was right though and she knew it. I can only be right about other stuff. Sorry Tim, hi.
