Weekly interwoven observations on the biodigital convergence, book reviews, stories of places I’ve been, people I’ve met, things I’ve done and seen everywhere from a small farm in 1950’s New Jersey to remote villages in northern Senegal to Silicon Valley startups to Martha’s Vineyard construction sites and firehouses; dreams, conjectures, peeks at my novels-in-progress; fears, rants, nightmares; essays on all manner of things; lampoons, cartoons, trial balloons, salons and saloons, a twisty maze of passages, each one different, and mazes of twisty passages, all alike.

Things I've seen & done on farms, in cities, in African villages, on Martha's Vineyard & in Silicon Valley — stories from research laboratories, truck stops, construction sites, hacker meets — trying to figure out what it's all about.
