This page used to be called portfolio. I've relabeled it projects. It seems more fitting. But since I like the definition of portfolio, I'm leaving it here.
Merriam-Webster defines a portfolio as "a hinged cover or flexible case for carrying loose papers, pictures, or pamphlets".
This page is somewhat like that; it is a page that carries the loose web sites where I have documents stored, projects being run, and pictures being displayed. Note that many of the links below take you to other sites I own, operate or fund.
Companies, past and present
Stickman Ventures, Inc. (http://www.stickmanventures.com/) was started in 2007 with my good friend and business partner Gareth Coen and my brother James. We're developing a series of products and projects. We've also found ourselves doing quite a bit of consulting for clients.
J5 Studios (http://www.j5studios.com/) has been a site I've run since early 2000. It houses many of my in progress open source software projects, hardware projects, general photography sets, and my running old chronicle of thoughts and events. Want to know what I was working on in June 2002? J5 Studios will tell you. Want to read some of my undergraduate papers? J5 Studios houses them.
Your Media Coverage (http://www.yourmediacoverage.com/) was formerly a place to make creative film projects. We made a splash with creative ads for Toyotas' Yaris and General Mills' PopSecret brands, I was interviewed for an NHK documentary on used generated advertising and we drummed up a far amount of buzz about pink plastic flamingos.

The Undergraduate Papers
They may be old, but they still have some life (because apparently people keep turning them without my name...but professors keep finding me) so here they are, a fair amount of my undergraduate course papers from Seattle University - Undergrad Papers / Docstoc
