I’m about to head off to see Joanna in Australia… and I’m very excited! We’re going to do a whirlwind tour of Perth, Sydney, and Canberra. Should be lots of fun.

In the last few days, I’ve been working hard to set up the new credit card donation feature on the Driving Votes website. Taking people’s money on the Internet turns out to be hard work, at least if you want to do it right! I’ll post a complete dissection of what I’ve learned when I get back from Down Under. (And if you haven’t checked DV lately, you should! We’ve got lots of road trips going on at the moment — check the fun videos and blogs of new DV members, now country-wide!)

Also, Tom and I have been working on our first Void Stars album, nearly done. We’ve also got a track on the upcoming Fourth City Compilation, which features lots of Seattle electronic talent. Check it.
