George Oates

Website: http://george08.blogspot.com

George is a writer by mistake. After taking up the weblog challenge from Vancouver in August of 2003, she inadvertently wrote the equivalent of a short thesis in her role as designer of Flickr, arguably the world's best photosharing website. She is a voracious fiction lover, and some favorite authors include Iris Murdoch, Martin Amis, Peter Carey, and Philip Roth.

She currently resides in San Francisco, where she runs the Open Library project for the Internet Archive. She's thinking about getting two kittens, if she gets a Green Card.
