    Just read this. It's a lovely piece. Mary Oliver's "three selves" taxonomy is a pretty poeticism for how creatives think of themselves and their work. I think the self is more protean than she suggests. I wonder if she's projecting the peculiarities of the traditional "artistic type" (the personality traits of a "traditional" creative) a bit much. I sort of read it like an archetypal description of ... More

  • Right off the bat, I want to say what this is not about. I want to shout upfront that this is not about denying the credibility of rape victims. It is also absolutely not about being skeptical about claims made in that realm. It is about forging a journalistic practice that is both intensely rigorous and trauma-informed, and I use some potentially explosive topics to discuss that. With that said... ... More

  • I thought I'd post the transcript for a conversational debate I did on the rights of immigrants here to see if anyone had anything interesting to say about it. It was recommended to me, recently, that I do a mini-tour of colleges talking about political and journalism issues, as well as whatever limited expertise I can claim to have on things like the vaping industry. So, I guess I'm testing the waters. ... More

  • In my work as a futurist, I have identified ten broad areas that are undergoing what I call technology revolutions, and will have enormous effects on how (and when) we live our lives. These are not exclusive; that is, they overlap (biofuels are both biotechnology and energy), but I find them useful to help explain the main types of disruptive technologies now being developed. 1. Aerospace and ... More

    This is an important thing to keep in mind and it makes me think that we might want to reword the old adage: If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go with a group.
