I've always loved futurology, technology, science fiction and policy, so I decided to take this opportunity to launch this personal project to indulge these obsessions.
I'm the author of After Legalization: understanding the future of marijuana policy and was until recently the senior policy analyst at Firedoglake. As a result of FDL running into financial difficulties I'm now looking for a new professional opportunities, but being a compulsive writer with an inflated sense that people care what I have to say, I can't just stop blogging. So I'm going to use this moment of freedom to write about the incredibly nerdy things I love but didn't get a chance to cover in detail before.
My intention is that if you want to know what new scientific developments mean, what they could mean for the entire trajectory of human evolution, or just how they will change the petty fights in your local city council meetings, this will be the site for you.
