ESSAYS

This section is meant to be a kind of combination of opinion essays, an infrequently updated blog, and reprints of articles of mine that appeared in various publications. In other words, miscellaneous subject matter that is related to speculative technology and the like but doesn't fit neatly into any other section. For any comments, criticisms or suggestions, contact me at: plucas1@hotmail.com
