Why Pay Bix Today?
Trying to rebuild one's expectations, life, and employment prospects after an unexpected midlife autism diagnosis is tricky, especially without the financial support of disability benefits. If any of these "claim to fame" accomplishments meant anything to you, please consider showing your appreciation by dropping me some cash.
S.314 Internet Petition
In 1995, I drafted an early internet petition statement in opposition to the Communications Decency Act. The effort directly inspired the Center for Democracy and Technology to launch a more robust version.
From 1997 to 1999, I owned and operated a cybercafe billing itself as "your local access to the global community". It was never able to pay anyone, including me, and failed financially after just two years.
From 2003 to 2005, I engaged in what some called "stand-alone journalism", covering local politics through a self-published blog. Its work was featured in The Oregonian and in two books about the internet.
Can't Stop the Serenity
In 2006, I took what started as just a list of theaters still playing the box office failure that was Serenity and turned it into a small but global charity fundraising event. It went on to raise more than one million dollars.
The Belmont Goats
From 2013 to 2019, I helped rescue an increasingly famous herd of urban goats from being split up, co-founding a nonprofit to keep the project going. It continues offering a therapeutic respite.
If any of these things I've done over the past 25 years meant anything to you, consider showing your appreciation by dropping me some cash.
