On weekdays I’m an IT industry consulting analyst. My broad interest covers the implications of emerging technologies. My deep interest pulls together the constellation of human, social, moral, political, and economic factors that drive or complicate technology adoption.
In evenings and weekends my creative focus is on how to make the most of cultural and technological change — recognizing and dealing with new risks and opportunities, preparing for what we can’t predict, being conscious of ethical and political issues, etc.
Previously I spent most of the ’00s doing independent research and writing on the nature of knowledge, creativity, and change. That research culminated as a book in 2010, and continues to be developed and refined through essays, blogging, and creative writing.
