Doctor Placebo's home page

sarong picture

As Doctor Placebo I claim to be essentially harmless. I'm not necessarily all that effective, but I don't have those nasty side effects, either. The name is also a reminder to myself to stay harmless.

I'm interested in science, technology, music, photography, love, fun, ethics, Hawaii (especially the Big Island) and (of course) Burning Man. I was born in New York City in 1950. I'm married since 1983. I live in Santa Cruz County, California.

Some material on this site may require an adult brain, but if you are looking for pornography then just keep moving along. Also, if you're looking for brilliant web design then you might try somewhere else. I write HTML by hand and I'm a bit lazy.

Yes, you can contact me here.
