About

I read, think, write, and talk about technology, usually in that order.

You can subscribe to my newsletter, The Convivial Societyhere.

I’ve compiled some my writing that has appeared here and elsewhere into The Tourist and the Pilgrim (2013),  which includes material published between 2010 and 2013.

The blog’s title is taken from one of Blaise Pascal’s pensees: “Between us and heaven or hell is only life, which is the frailest thing in the world.”

If you’ve appreciated what you’ve read here, consider consider lending your steady support or leaving a tip for the writer, who, as an independent scholar, would be quite grateful.

Regarding comments: A good deal of my limited discretionary time I invest in my writing here. I very much appreciate comments from readers, but often I am unable to reply. Please take no offense.

Feel free to reach out if you’d be interested in having me write for your publication or speak to your organization about how technology shapes our world.
