My Bio

I had to write a bio for a conference I’m going to be speaking at in April. I’m on a blogging panel discussion tenatively titled Blogging: The Citizen’s Media” Revolution.

Here’s my feeble attempt to make myself sound important and intelligent so people come to the session, although I have a feeling the word blog in the title will pack it out regardless…

Nick Ciske has been staring at a computer screen for most of his young life. Starting with Apple Basic in 4th grade, he’s been programming ever since. After a 5 year stint at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, he’s now managing web development for Bethany Press (a major Christian book printer in Bloomington, Minn.). As a freelance developer he has worked for such clients as Carmichael Lynch and Highway Video. He is also the media coordinator and webmaster for bluer, an emergent Vineyard Church in Minneapolis which has been featured in the New York Times and NPR. He also maintains his blog, portfolio site (nickciske.com), and a bunch of other sites as well as coercing many of his friends and co-workers (some kicking and screaming) into the blogosphere. His church was one of the first to podcast its weekly sermon, and he started producing original podcasts in January of 2005.

PS- Yes that is the most mundane entry title I’ve ever used. The juices just ain’t flowing at the moment…
