Welcome to my new homepage. This site is a consolidation of all my work to date: short stories, biography, and the things I am interested in. It will be continually updated as time goes on. I am a science fiction author, an artist and musician, a Wordsmith, a Devil Beater, a Arm-Chair General and a Gamer. I am
also an information maniac, having read over 20,000 books (over 3,000 currently in my office). I am politically active as well and have strong Libertarian leanings. I am NOT a Republican or a Democrat, IMO both parties are wrecking the entire country. I am active on various websites and with a few organizations. I graduated from Coeur d'Alene High School (Idaho) in 1986. Check back from time to time for more updates on my site.

In the 1980s, the futurist Alvin Toffler pointed out that technological change sometimes caused radical shifts in culture and society. Such a change would sweep across the world like a "wave," transforming institutions and worldviews, bringing a new kind of civilization into existence in a relatively short time. The results would be so significant that societies on opposite sides of a Wave would literally be inhabiting different worlds. Toffler spoke of three Waves. The First Wave was triggered by the discovery of agriculture perhaps 10,000 years ago. The Second Wave corresponded with the Industrial Revolution, which began about 1800. The Third Wave that Toffler predicted was associated with the spread of digital computers and information networks (the Information Age), beginning about 1960. Toffler's vision was correct in many specifics and people use the concept of "waves of change" in deadly earnest.

The primary technology in these waves are:

First Wave - labor-intensive agriculture

Second Wave - industrial manufacturing

Third Wave - digital computers and networks

Understanding the Third Wave and all of its implications is critical to everyone alive today. Please read "The Third Wave"
by Alvin Toffler.
