About

Jason Carter is a Southerner transplant to San Diego in his mid to late twenties. His passion for travel has taken him to 22 countries and 46 U.S. States. He thinks that’s fine and dandy, but he’d rather sleep in his own bed tonight, thank you very much.

This site is an archive of my life. I’m constantly changing the format, it seems, but it’s kind of like a photo album, journal, and scrap book all rolled into one. The first version of my personal site can be found here. It was created in the fall of 1998 with Netscape Composer and hosted on a free Geocities account. A redesign of the site, performed when I was woefully unemployed in the fall of 1999, can be found here. After finally landing a job in March of 2000, I was able to pursue web development in a professional setting. A sampling of these and other projects can be found in the newly-created portfolio section.

I purchased this domain in December of 2001 and the site went live on January 1st, 2002. I started off with the noble goal of posting a picture every day, and actually did a pretty good job through June with 115 pictures. But, rather than highlight my photography or the places I’ve been, the “A Picture A Day” section shows (quite painfully) the various iterations of this site and my capabilities as a XHTML/CSS designer. I’ve preserved the site here (first picture | last picture), but don’t plan on contributing to it in the future.

    Jason,

    Congrats on your twins! I hope all is well with you and Stephanie. I was just thinking about some old friends/colleagues as we approach another very visible change of seasons here on the EC and wanted to say congrats! I’m sure you’re both so happy and crazy at the same time.

    Hi Mr. Carter (lol) –

    Was just running a quick search to see if ownership was still being maintained of our shared namesake website. You beat me to it some years ago 🙂 At any rate, I just got a kick out of the fact that we’re both displaced southerners in CA (I’m in SF), and working in marketing (strategy consultant here). Now if you told me you’re a cyclist from North Carolina, I’d probably keel over… gasping for air. LOL

    Quick question – can you recommend a solid and reliable method you prefer for accurate marketing ROI calculation? I’m not terribly keen on the quick-fix web solutions, so I’m just surveying peers and professionals in my network for success stories, and consistency in reliability and accuracy. It would be great to hear your feedback if you’ve got a minute…

    Cheers,

    Jason L. Carter
