Welcome to Cycroft.com, Russ Campbell’s home in cyberspace. This home page acts as a portal to the many areas of my Internet activity, where I indulge my passion for writing, digital photography and general research.
Back in the mid-nineties, when the World Wide Web (WWW) was still in its infancy, I became keenly interested in using the Internet to pursue various interests. Since then, the Web has evolved in giant leaps from a cranky, clumsy text-dominated environment with quite limited resources for research and social interaction to the content-rich, graphics-intensive world it now is.
Newspapers, magazines, books, online encyclopedias, research projects and blogs proliferate on today’s Web, while Facebook, Twitter and Flicker, among many others, provide virtually unlimited opportunities for social interaction unmatched in the 60,000 or so years of human history.
Creative writing, digital photography, birding and politics are my primary interests these days, though I also enjoy researching my family’s roots and several other areas, including history, motion pictures, Web design and typography.
Although this is a personal Web site, those who share my interests might very well enjoy browsing these pages.
Thanks for visiting,
