Cycroft: Home Page

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,

Russ Campbell
