I don’t really use the blog section so much. Most of my posts here are projects and they’re all listed on the home page, in order of most recent.


I spoke at TEDxVienna 2022 on how to find attention, mindfulness, and creativity in the everyday.


I have an occasional newsletter that you can sign up for and, also occasionally, win things. Go for it.

‘The Collector: St. Louis artist Bill Keaggy takes the ordinary and makes it extraordinary’

Wow. Check out this profile of me in The Riverfront Times!

St. Louis Post-Dispatch Q&A

Q&A with me about the 50 Sad Chairs book.

Great photo by David Carson with chair-throwing help from Laurie Skrivan!


50 SAD CHAIRS the book is available now (and I made the web site a little bit better)!

I also made a promo video for it.

Buy it at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, BlueQ, Abe Books, and more.

My goal for 2008: Nothing.

’13 St. Louisans who are redefining cool’

It took a long time, but I’m finally cool. St. Louis Magazine put me on its list of “13 St. Louisans who are redefining cool.”

So just remember that.

But seriously, thank you STL Mag!

It’s for reals

So you might have heard me mention (about 648 times) that I made a book based on one of my sites, It’s called “Milk Eggs Vodka: Grocery Lists Lost and Found” and will be in stores in just a couple weeks. So that makes 649 mentions. Anyway, I also made a new web site to promote the book: So there.

Earlier this week I received an advance copy. It’s such as weird thrill to hold the actual book in my hands. I think it turned out pretty cool. So this is just another thank you to everyone who has contributed to the Grocery List Collection over the years. You just might see one of yours in the book, which, happily, is available on Amazon and comes out in May.

I’m switching web hosts. Some features are broken but will be fixed in the next week or so, I hope.

Wanted: the world’s coolest robots, pirates, and monkeys

I’m working on a big RPM project and I want your suggestions for the coolest robots, pirates and monkeys ever.

Now, of course I’ve got C-3PO, Blackbeard and Curious George on the list—I need suggestions for RPMs that might not be part of the fabric of popular culture.

Would you read a book about the world’s 100 greatest robots, pirates, and monkeys?

Off to San Francisco for a few days…

…for the first-ever VizThink conference.
