Where Doc writes & performs:
- Writing at Doc Searls Weblog. (Shortlink: doc.searls.com).
- Podcasting at FLOSS Weekly on http://TWiT.tv and on Reality 2.0 (originally the Linux Journal podcast).

- Freelancing for lots of pubs, some deceased: The Wall Street Journal, OMNI, Wired, PC Magazine, The Standard, The Sun, Upside, The Globe & Mail, Harvard Business Review, Release 1.0.
- Photography. Many of Doc's pictures are gathered here and here, and explained in Making useful photographs. Nearly all carry public domain or attribution-only Creative Commons licenses, to encourage modificaton, use and re-use. As a result of this approach, by mid-2021, more than1600 of those had fo their way onto Wikimedia Commons, which is a staging zone for Wikipedia. These accompany hundreds (or perhaps thousands) of Wikipedia articles. His photos of ice crystals were also the wallpaper for NBC's 2010 Winter Olympics coverage.
