About

Hi. My name is Fox Woods.

I live/breathe/work/enjoy in Melbourne, Australia.

Yep. That’s me, above. I was married at Burning Man in 2013, celebrated by a Robot Elvis in an Elvis Chapel in the Nevada Desert. (Robot Elvis is behind the curtain.)

My dear family lives in an old “lots-of-character!” house – there’s Fox (me), James (my best friend), Kit (our two-year-old), Sky (our one-year-old), and Jetpack (the dog).

Projects

Some things what I done.

  • Monaco Video (All new and improved!) – Vlog project, 2017.
  • Milkshake Collective – A collective of freelancers.
  • Milkshake Mag – A pretend online magazine.
  • Girls Club xo – Monthly workshops/meetups for women in Melbourne, 2012–2014.
  • Little Salon – An evening of dinner & conversation, where there is a set topic.
  • Webdays – Look, I tried to do this thing… in a bar… it didn’t really work.
  • NaNoWriMo – In November 2013, I wrote the first draft of a novel, 50K words. Yikes.
  • Brunch Club – Introducing people to other people with similar interests.
  • Ohhhh do you remember that time where I set up a mailing list for my apartment building and no one used it for ages and then they started using it frequently but only to complain to each other and I shut it down.
  • Monaco Video – A video series on YouTube.
  • Pocketmakers – Website with randomly presented ideas to spark creativity.

Okay, and these ones were from a long, long time ago…

  • Glitter & Doom – I had this idea for a website where people from web agencies could submit the latest work they were making, and list the people who worked on it. But I didn’t really know how to launch it properly. Anil Dash has now made Makerbase, which is a pretty good version of the idea!
  • Buddy Be Mine – Oh dear, if I tell you about this site, will you still speak to me? Anyway – it was a website where you could say you were “married” to another person. Like, if you met someone on the internet and you wanted to get pretend-married to them, you could both make a pledge on the website (“in front” of witnesses) and you got a certificate and a “marriage” page for your pledges, photos, etc. There was also a divorce process, but that’s another story.
  • Romantikator – A dating website for robots. Didn’t get much traction.
  • Les Mistons – Mail group for talking about/sharing music.
  • Littlest – Daily mailing list with single-sentence-stories.
  • Storytime – Collection of stories from 2003-2009.
  • Sophie Walking – Mail group with one rule: posts must be non sequiturs.
  • Labyrinth, Papermilk, Sinceritybird, Leaf – Early blogs.
  • Ghost – Mailing list with short stories.
  • MaMoDaBe – Weekly email with small prompt to make Mondays fun. (Making MonDays Better.)
  • Jupiter Boating Services – Collection of stories created with @blipsandclicks & @robotparker.
