Post-Glass post

[Photo taken while walking in the Missouri State campus wearing Glass] Sometimes I get a great idea and don’t have time to write about it at that moment. This is one of those times. It’s probably no secret that I was part of the Google […]

Future tech now, part 1: “Where we’re going, we don’t need no road.”

Most people will recognize that quote from the end of Back to the Future. I may not get my flying car, but I am getting Google Glass. Even though I need my copies of Remediation and Lingua Fracta, I also need to be home for a package I’m […]

Steampunk in the movies

I am hunkering down and dividing my time between writing and reading for a steampunk article I’m working on. My big question today is, what are the most beloved steampunk movies or television shows and why are they so beloved? I have some ideas and […]
