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 remote workdays. 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.

About Jacob

Jacob Penderworth

Jacob Penderworth is a biographer with a camera who resides in Portland, Oregon. He enjoys the art of writing, listens to entire albums, plays piano, sips a good tea throughout the day, and bikes almost everywhere. 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, and some say he is only interested in women who share a common interest in the Oxford comma.

This blog tells some of his story, which you may enjoy, and shows some of his mistakes, which you will most definitely enjoy. You can learn more about his other work across the Internet on the “Where to find Jacob” page. For a full list of his reading and app recommendations, please visit the "Things I like" page. If you absolutely must know more about Jacob, you have his permission to read his autobiography.
