I hope you’re having a swell time. I probably am.
Since childhood, I’ve been fascinated by technology. I later realized that the magic of technology is best unleashed by brilliance across many fields: science, technology, design, leadership, management, business, government and public policy.
In this blog, I write essays related to these topics. You can’t have clear writing without clear thinking. I write to bring clarity to my mind.
Also, I’m happy when my writing helps others. If you find the content here useful, let me know.
Even better, subscribe to this blog’s mailing list. If you do, you’ll get new articles by email. You get to read new content as it is published, directly from your email.
