Welcome to my blog. This site is devoted to highlighting whatever catches my attention, and I'm interested in lots of things. Some recurring themes are design, technology, sustainability, web culture, and domestic life. I often post about current events. Contradictions intrigue me. In thinking about the Web and technology, I tend to be a pragmatist, not a promoter. My interest is in the intersection between technology and human behavior: how people use technologies and how technologies influence what they do. I am fascinated with unintended consequences. I post the occasional recipe.
