If I had to guess, I’d say that my fascination with technology, science, and “the way things work” has its roots in my thoroughly LEGO-strewn childhood. You’d often find me amid piles of bricks, assembling spaceships or moon bases.

I don’t have much time for LEGOs these days, but my affinity for all things mechanical and technological is still going strong. This blog is an attempt to channel not just my inner child, but to indulge my love of gadgetry, technological progress, scientific discovery, and the intersection of technology and politics.

Stick around for a look at the emerging legal implications of our fascination with drones, for example, or to learn about which common phrases are based on obsolete technologies.

Or, if you’d prefer, you can put on your philosopher’s hat and join my alter ego over at New Music Friday for discussions about progressive music.
