          Akedia.net was launched August 31st, 2008 to act as my personal design portfolio; it also hosts several blogs, non-for-profits, and professional websites. It is currently hosted at HostDuplex.

          The word akedia is Greek for "the absence of caring," a root to the Latin acedia, which is also known as the deadly sin of sloth, exhaustion and fatigue, spiritual lethargy, and "the demon of noonday".
