Hello and welcome to my blog!

The focus of this blog will primarily be science and technology. More specifically, how emerging technology and technological trends will shape the future. The world is changing rapidly, and we’re fortunate enough to be along for the ride.

The world of today is very different from the world of yesterday, and the world of tomorrow is going to be unimaginably different. Augmented reality, holographic video, self driving cars, ubiquitous computing, artificial intelligence, fusion reactors, advanced space travel, and perhaps even indefinite lifespan. As Michio Kaku is fond of saying in his latest book “Physics of the Future,” with the technology that is being developed and that will be emerging over the coming decades, we will attain powers akin to those of the ancient Gods of mythology.

It’s true that with all that humanity has accomplished thus far there are still many problems to overcome. We are still killing each other in wars, there is still hatred and bigotry and the like. And most likely, without a fundamental change in human nature, we will always have these problems to some degree.

Even so, technology is paving the way to a brighter future. Human ingenuity is the most powerful tool in the universe, and I am a firm believer that with a little bit of time and effort most problems can be solved.

The future is going to be a fantastic place, and I hope to see you there!
