Personal Note
Hey, yeah, I know the name of this website sucks. I was 15 when I created it, cut me some slack. And while we're at it: I'm not punk, I'm not emo, I'm not hardcore, and I'm not indie. I'm a music fan and that's all I'll ever claim to be.
Biography
I'm Jason Tate and I founded this website. Iím a writer, music enthusiast, web-developer, typography geek, podcaster, and a coffee and beer snob. Sometime around 1996 I created absolutepunk.net -- a music community to discuss underappreciated music I loved. Over the next few years, it got popular. Then it got really popular. The goal of the website was to introduce people to new music and provide a community for people to discuss music that was not often heard in the mainstream. Oh, and for me to whine and moan about things I felt like to a chorus of "why is this news!?" posts. In 2004 I (sold-out and) sold the company to SpinMedia while staying on to consult and manage a variety of other music properties. If you're interested in finding out more about me, check out my blog: chorus.fm. I write there pretty frequently about music, technology, and really anything that comes to mind and doesn't make sense for AP.net. I also do consulting for bands, tech companies, websites, design, and things like that. Interested in working together on a project? Reach out and let's talk.
Jason Tate hasn't created any threads yet. They must be new.

No problem man. I know you've been very busy lately. I just hacked into the email account and reset the password that way. I'm glad to be back! I missed AP.net!

Haha, yeah, I kept getting distracted. The paper was a hassle. At least this class is almost over! Only two weeks until winter break! And until my wisdom teeth are out... I'm still nervous about that.

Also, I'm glad your "interview" is back ;)
