About Me

I stink?I've been running gtmcknight.com since July 2002. Blogging has made me friends, gotten me jobs and satisfied my inner need for expression. I am an entrepreneur & web developer living in Gainesville, Florida. I enjoy brainstorming, trying new things & doing things that don't feel like work.

I can be reached at . If you take the time to write me, I will take the time to write you back.


I currently spend my time making The Hype Machine & SCHED* rock.

I've worked at University of Florida Web Administration (3/04 - 10/06) & Gawker Media (3/06 - 7/07) as a lead front-end web developer and designer.

I founded Podbop (Oct 2005 with Daniel Westermann-Clark), Chime.TV (Jan 2007) and SCHED* (Mar 2008) with Chirag Mehta

I've spoken at conferences & my projects have been mentioned in old-media like CNN, CBS, & The Chicago Tribune and new-media like Wired, TechCrunch, Daily Candy & Inside The Net.


I listen to music from the moment I wake up until I fall asleep. It is an important part of my life. My dream is to perform on stage someday (just once), but I should probably get some talent and/or learn how to play guitar first. Until then I play journalist at festivals like CMJ Music Marathon, Athens Popfest & SXSW Music.

I've been obsessively keeping track of what I'm listening to since 2003 on my profile at Last.FM. I've also been enjoying what MTV must have been like before all the reality shows with Chime.TV's Indie Music Video Channel.


I love photography because it lets you show others how you see the world. My work has appeared in newspapers and magazines. My goal is to have my work in a gallery someday.

I've completed Project 365's (1 photo a day) in 2004 and 2006. Since then I've written tips on how to do your own and started a Flickr Group for others to participate (over 5,000 members).

Redesigns Over The Years

I've been too busy to do a real redesign these days, so I usually just take an existing Tumblr theme and modify it to my liking. It's powered by Tumblr, which makes blogging a pleasure (but a tad less customizable). You can still browse my archives of blog entries since July 2002.
