I read a great article today by David Zax on technologyreview.com called “The Religion of Innovation: Enough with Innovation for Innovation’s Sake”. He makes a brilliant conclusion at the end of the story: “Technology changes, evolves, and improves–as it should. But far from calling out products for failing to innovate, or calling out companies for… Read More


Even in the information age, with the wonder that is the internet, I still find myself needing to buy books occasionally. Today, I thought I would show you the process of thought I go through to decide when and how to buy a book. 1. Is it available for free (legally)? Run a google search… Read More


I had the privilege to present a paper at the Southwest Region of the Evangelical Theological Society this year. The abstract is below, with a pdf link to the full paper.

I forgot a meeting today. I was supposed to meet someone important at 11:00am. It slipped my mind. I find this unacceptable because I hold myself to high standards about giving my word. If I say I’ll do something then I want that to mean that it is as good as done. I have all… Read More
