Looking at this page here in late 2021, and amazed at everything that's happened in the span of time since the page first appeared. The continued development of the Internet and the Web has indeed brought unexpected and deep change to the world, and (surprise!), it's been a mix of good and bad.
We are all enthralled and entagled in the powers that the technology offers us. The fact that I can publish this instantly, in a place accessable to so many, is something no previous generation has weilded.
As I think about the life I've been given, in its totality so far, and how to approach the days still ahead for me - and that's going to be a small number, compared to the number of days passed already! - there are some things I'd like to say... so, watch this space! :)
Disavowal and Disclaimer: My only excuse is that I avow an understanding, though pitifully intellectual, that "the self", or at least my self, just doesn't exist, despite what it might have to say about it. Or, at least, it certainly doesn't exist apart from its comrade, you. Consequently, I hereby disavow any blame for constructing yet another of these irritatingly self-absorbed personal web pages... yeah, you know the type...

As you can see, I have thus far spared you any truly gruesome self-indulgences, such as lists of my favorite this-es and that-s, personal history, curricula vitae, investment (and other) philosophies, and so on.
But, alas, I make no guarantee that I never will; thus, revisit these pages at your own peril.
