Renewed Projects

If you were reading this blog a couple of years ago, you’ll remember reading something about my being the director of the Center for the Study of Ethics and Technology. Not much came of that then for a variety of reasons. However, I’m pleased to say that I’m renewing my efforts on that project, this time with a little more help and a sharper focus. Chiefly, this will involve a more explicitly theological approach to tech criticism. The idea, as I’ve articulated here before, is that trenchant and worthwhile tech criticism cannot take a view from nowhere; it needs be rooted in explicit understandings of what people are for, to borrow a phrase from Wendell Berry.

You can read about our relaunch here. [Update: If you’d like to keep up with CSET you can subscribe to the blog’s RSS feed and/or follow on Twitter.]

I’m also happy to say that I’ve got an essay in the summer issue of The New Atlantis. It’s paywalled currently, I’ll share a link when it becomes available. I’ll have some more work coming out with them later this year. TNA is a terrific journal that I’ve been reading for years, so I’m rather pleased to be writing for them.

Not too worry, though. I’ll continue posting to this site and putting out The Convivial Society, a new installment of which should be out in a week or so.
