More and more, I’m beginning to think that our success as a nation – and as a species on this planet – depends on us looking back to our ancestors for wisdom and insight for survival. And, I think that will lead us to one overarching theme: Decentralization. As the human race became more modern […]
I realized yesterday that it’s been awhile since I’ve written about some of my currently-favorite technology tools, so here are a few, in no particular order.

You may have sworn off politics for awhile after the extremely long election cycle that just ended, and I wouldn’t blame you if you did.
