I respect ideas that stand the test of time. I respect those slow-facts, that hard-won wisdom. I share my experience and point out where my experience fits in a larger body of knowledge. I have a particular interest in liberty.
I’m an engineering/physics geek who gets paid to bleed on the cutting edge of technology. I’ve touched parts that are off our planet and will never return. I get to work with some of the best tools and the smartest people in the business.
Life isn’t about tools no matter how sophisticated the tools might be. Life is about people. I’ve raised children with problems. I am amazed by their strengths and weaknesses. Some are unstoppable, and some won’t get out of their own way on any given day. They are us in miniature.
I have high standards of conduct and competence. That is true if you’re calculating stress-and-stain, singing a song, or raising your children. People impress me and I love sharing their inspiration here at SlowFacts. I believe in the slow hunch.
I’m a weekly contributor at Clash Daily and I write about human rights at Ammoland. I try to keep copies posted here on the SlowFacts blog. I co-host the Polite Society Podcast and produce the Self-Defense Gun Stories podcast.
