Welcome! Future for All is my personal web site about future technology and its affect on society. Sometimes I write articles, but mainly I post hand-picked links to future technology articles, images and videos. I hope you like my site and find it useful.

DonorsChoose.org makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
Approaching the Singularity
Surfing the web for The Singularity gives me a gnarly headache. No doubt a reaction to asking my brain to find ways of replacing itself. Both intriguing and frightening, my approach to the Singularity is to treat it like a dessert tray--the further it is away, the less I am infatuated by it.
