Bill Simmon 

I'm a filmmaker, writer and media educator living in the south end of Burlington. I'm particularly interested in the social effects of democratized media and technology. Gutenberg set us free in the 1400s but moveable type had nothing on the internet when it comes to the democratizing power of information technology. I maintain a number of blogs for a number of organizations, but this tends to be the common thread among them — greater personal freedom through social media and technology.

  • Occupation: filmmaker/writer/media educator
  • Favorite part of my job: Telling stories
  • Least favorite part of my job: deadlines
  • 1st PC: Timex Sinclair 1000 (1982)
  • Favorite VT hotspot: Speeder and Earl's Pine Street
  • When I'm not in front of my computer I am: less free
  • I wish computers could: do my laundry
  • Top websites I read daily: Boing Boing,,, undead molly,
