So many whims and flutters of interest, intrigue, insight. To sit and disclose one thought means I must pontificate on the subject whole-heartedly, as if it needed googling and thorough research.

No one can physically or willingly pay attention to all of it, because we each have distinct taste and only pay attention to what we are interested in. Regardless of the many cell phones sitting on the dining tables interrupting our ‘quality time’ and conversations, we now have more … Read More

I might read sci-fi books and stay up on tech news, but there’d be close to no chance you’d ever see me at Comic Con or playing a video game. On the other hand, virtual reality is something we are all going to have to get used to, at least all of us near and under 30 years old.

It is the ultra-immersive version of all these things, and we’ll use it exactly the same ways — to … Read More
