“Don’t act as if you have 100 years to live.” — Marcus Antoninus Aurelius


I’ve worked in the telecommunications and information technology industry 20+ years, starting my junior year in High School. My background is both broad and deep when it comes to science and technology from years of experience, voracious reading of textbooks, white papers, and online industry news, along with a lifelong passion for both Science and science fiction. I’m still constantly seeking new things, innovation, and an improved future for all and I like to challenge my assumptions, patterns, and biases frequently. I pride myself on my ability to look forward and to creatively find the good things in new technologies beyond the inevitable worries about change that they come with. e.g. — I don’t think robots will take our jobs, I think robots will enable us to do the jobs we really need and want.

Comments are open and Un-moderated by humans — they do not reflect my points of view, and I am not responsible for their content. Akismet automatically moderates comments, so hopefully you won’t see porn and gambling site ads in them. I do not allow people to register; however you can comment without registering. The people who are registered here are all people I know in person or through long online communication, association, or partnerships.

This is my site and I have standards — if you post an obnoxious comment, a comment devoid of content, an unreasonable, or ugly comment it’s not going to live long. Comments encouraging violence such as “nuke all the X” will not be tolerated but I am not omniscient and don’t watch comments 24×7, so it might take a while to get rid of bad or troll comments.

If you post something worth reading that’s reasoned and factual, then it might live even if I completely disagree. Sometimes ugly, and unreasonable comments might live just for illustrative reasons.

Anything sent direct to me in email is my property, and could be published or used against you in a court of law. That said, if you send me email that you don’t want published then please let me know, otherwise I will consider it free game.
