Jason Olshefsky


I'm Jason Olshefsky. I moved to Rochester to go to RIT in 1988. When I graduated in 1993 I took jobs in the area and have been living here ever since. I bought a house in the Upper Mount Hope Neighborhood in 1998.

In 2004 I went to [WWW]Burning Man for the first time. In 2005, I brought a project called the [WWW]Bike With 2 Brains which is a 2-person vehicle to foster social interaction. I update the website as I get things done.

I'm also the author of [WWW]JayceLand. It's a weekly events page that I started in 1999. I update it each Thursday with an essay/journal/blog and a list of events coming up in the week. It's really only for me — I do it to figure out what's going on in town so I don't miss anything ... either that, or I go do all sorts of things to justify writing the website.

I'm also a photographer, although I haven't done much in a while. You can see some of my images at [WWW]Jason Olshefsky Photography.

If I missed anything, there's also my [WWW]Other Projects page where I list all the things I've been working on.

2005-12-27 22:27:30   Glad to see you went to Burning Man! I went in 2k1 and it was the greatest. —DanDangler

2007-04-06 10:05:27   Jason, I have been looking at adding the Cheat sheet to the page editor page. It just requires me to get time to do it. —AdamDewitz

2007-04-27 08:50:42   Hi Jason, I do not understand your edits of the 1964 race riot page. In the summary, you claim that it was not a race riot? Then in your edits—are you denying crowds gathering on the basis of rumors of police brutality? Are you also saying that it was only rumors of black crowds that prompted the violence? Are you implying violence within the crowds only began after the police arrived? Is it definitively known what side of the conflict began the violence once crowds had assembled? The PBS supplied outline (linked to on the page) seems to disagree with the information you have supplied. I do not know a tremendous amount about the conflict. Are there any alternate sources you can cite? —RobertPolyn

2007-05-01 18:49:31   I reverted your edit on the "Persons of Local Importance" page. Whether or not you agree with his politics, Bob Lonsberry is definitely a local personality whose views carry some weight with a group of Rochester residents. —RottenChester

2007-05-01 20:52:03   I object to your removal of Andy Pero from Names of Local Importance. You say that you removed people with no political, social, or economic weight. Isn't what you mean, simply however, that you are prejudiced against those with psionic powers? Andy Pero created the Babylon project responsible for the Babylon 5 space station. If that does not equal political, social, and economic weight (and grace)—then I do not know what does.

But I agree, LEDs are best but their not a viable light bulb solution yet, but I'm eager to make the switch from CFL (4yrs now) to LED. —TravisOwens

2007-09-08 12:19:13   well that's a bit hysterical... —StarMcKenzie

2007-10-18 10:58:52   Gerry has a picture of me? With him? (scratching my head in confusion) —DaveMahon

2007-12-14 21:53:43   Rotten's working on replacement engine software that will address some of these concerns - and a whole bunch of other issues. It might take a little while, but it should be worth it. You should probably approach him about test driving the new software. —DaveMahon

2008-11-01 17:42:18   Hi Jason - you hereby ADOPT your Orphan Page Wiki Sand Box/Decade Include - (;>} —BradMandell

2008-11-05 19:34:01   Jason—saw your comment for Giordano Imports—good to hear from you again! —PeteB

2015-11-18 10:08:06   Thanks for finding all that info about wheelchair access for the Hungerford Building. I'm sure many readers will appreciate it.

But what on earth do they have against bike racks??? The Village Gate has some very nice, artistic ones; why can't the Hungerford do the same? —EileenF
