On Technology

This page is designed to aggregate various musing on the progression of technology, its effects on culture, and the idea of “enough.” What exists here, now, is a list of topics that I often think about. Some I have notes on and some I hope to eventually put my thoughts down in writing. The Table of Topics below is a placeholder for some of the notes and resources I plan to write and collect.
