What to make of it

I thought to myself that I hadn’t written here in months and was struggling to figure out the purpose for it. Then I looked and realized it had been over a year. The 30 days of fiction writing was fun, and maybe worth considering a repeat of. But I also like the idea of this… Read More


“We have something difficult we wanted to talk to you about…” “Let me just say immediately I appreciate you coming to me directly about this, really I do, this has been an ongoing issue that I’ve been trying to resolve but it’s been hard on my own.

Half the people walking around in public these days have no idea the other half are engaged in ongoing warfare.  It started off as a game – an augmented reality capture the flag – but before long the hackers realized how to tie real world resources into the system.
