Blog

This is my blog, the fruit stand of my digital garden; the place where I put my more polished essays, thoughts, and writings out into the world. Most of what I have written and published is listed below though I have removed posts I think are low quality or lack any valuable insight (fruit that has gone bad, as it were). Please note that older posts—even those that are less than a year old—may not match my current views or practices.
