Ground Floor

Ever since Aristophanes, in his Clouds, ridiculed Socrates for supposedly making the weaker argument seem sound, the clouds have been a metaphor for ideas that are divorced from the real world. As a philosopher and thinker concerned with life here on earth, I hope to reclaim that metaphor by offering a big picture perspective on ideas that matter. I am especially interested in the role of science and technology in human life and in what we can do to accelerate their progress.  Hang around for a while and read my notes from the clouds.
