I maintain my most up-to-date content at I'm a big fan of Known and the IndieWeb but find the new Google Sites much easier to use at this time.


I finally found a good use for the front-facing camera on my phone. I was trying to plug a DVI connector into a monitor that is difficult to get behind So I aimed the smartphone up and was able to see what I was doing.


After spending more than a year (much of it procrastinating) and probably 10 hours in the last week, filling out the IRS form 1023 to get Trumansburg Robotics, Inc 501(c)(3) status I discovered that the IRS has simpler 1023-EZ. It is a form you fill out online and submit with your payment. It took about 20 minutes! Oy Vey!

I've read that the difference is that for the full 1023 form they analyse all the data you provide and determine if you follow the rules for a 501(c)(3). For the 1023EZ they monitor you for three years to make sure you behave.
