Since pursuing a maritime career, she has sailed up and down the west coast of the United States on traditional square rigged sailing ships. When not working on boats, she enjoys catching up with friends in the Bay Area, reading archaic books about bosunry and rigging, traveling by train, and building large interactive art with friends.

    Hi KC.
    I live in Australia and your post about the DefCon cards was brought to my attention on Facebook by a (male) friend. I would like to buy a whole bunch of your cards to carry around in my purse for use on those occasions when you wish you had something like that with you. I’d get them for my friends, too. Would you consider selling them over the Internet? You could (as you mentioned) donate the profits to an organisation like the Sally Ride Science: https://sallyridescience.com/ — please let me know.

    You go KC! As Felicity Blake, I read your post about DefCon and it will be great to know if you are going to sell them over the internet. It will be the only way to have them because I live in Italy…please let me know!

      I have no interest in selling them. 🙂 But you are more than welcome to create your own! I’m really not interested in doing any more work to promote that particular project these days.
