Arrows Reach was created by Jacob Penderworth on 23 June 2011. It used to be about technological advances in the modern world, but has evolved to be the daily reformed notepad of its sole author, Penderworth.
The goal of the Reach project is to write about every workday, and work from a different place each day. Not all day, just at some point during that day. A lot of it is travel-based, because Jacob has an obsession with new places. He also makes it a point to talk to one new and random person each day in the place he works from. Some of the stories are epic, and a few are dull. You'll like them all.

Jacob Penderworth is an arbitrary, introverted fellow who resides in Santa Barbara, California. He enjoys the art of writing, listens to lots of classical music, plays keyboard, knows the qualities of a good tea, delights in well-crafted espresso, and secretly thinks his photography will take him around the world one day. When bored, Jacob resorts to correcting erroneous Wikipedia entries, looking for God, and writing about himself in the third person. He’s known as the “Pinecone stomper” on Yelp, but is quietly fascinated with the aculeate things. Some say he is only interested in women who share a common interest in the serial comma — fascinatingly, this disputed grammatical entity is the only thing he has a strong opinion on.
