Welcome to For Now.
This blog started in ’07 as a replacement for a large site on web design. It had become too cumbersome to keep current so I kept a few rare pages and folded in my interest in science and technology. I dropped the last symbol tables in ’10 when I went to grad school. This was also a better medium than annoying friends with emails. I’ve added in some of the many tech support articles I’ve done for friends and groups, making it easier than digging them out repeatedly. (the articles that is – still end up digging out friends) Some articles get little interest and some get heavy traffic even years after they were written. You never know.
The name is a play on the idea of the present now: being about now, and about whats temporary and changeable.

I worked in software development and web applications for about a decade and am currently writing a philosophical book. Interests include new media, film and video production, music, design, construction, and technology. I have a lifelong curiosity about the world and a desire to understand it.
