Kelake is a weblog, journal and personal reference tool, updated infrequently since 1999, published by me, Clark MacLeod. It’s a continuation of early web projects that I published elsewhere, long before Peter Merholz coined the term ‘blog’, or before tweets were a thing, or medium became a publishing platform of choice.

I tend to write post about topics that skirt around the edges of design, technology, place and experience.

I wish I could write well, just like I wish I could paint and sketch.

Most entries are very short, usually more than a tweet, but much less than an essay. This is often how blogs were at their inception, a mixture of curation and personal experience and insights

Breaking my decade long relationship with MovableType, I now use WordPress to quickly get ideas online. Hosting has been provided by Pair for over 18 years.

To get in touch, sending email is still fine. Please note that I have fairly aggressive spam filters and I apologise if your email gets filtered wrongly. Even considering the time difference I do reply promptly, usually by afternoon.

You can also find me on Twitter, Linkedin, and Skype

About Clark

I grew up in Prince Edward Island and left home after graduating high school to study music and trumpet performance at Humber College and the Royal Conservatory in Toronto. I performed with many different ensembles and groups during my 10 years in the city, but later, by the time I finally finished my undergrad in music at St. F.X. I was ready to start something new.

After a long period of self-study, I landed my first job as a designer, which at that time was as close to being a rockstar as I could have hoped to achieve. Later, my wife and I flew half-way around the world to Taiwan where I started work within a large team, who would be like family to me. During the past 19 years in Taiwan, I’ve worked with many great people and organizations, graduated from Chiao Tung University with a Masters in Design, learned a new language, became a father, launched numerous side projects, and travelled the world for work and play.

After working this past year in China, I’ve returned to Taiwan where I live with my wife, 2 kids and our 2 dogs. The summer of 2018 we hope to return to my place of birth, set up shop and start a new journey.
