Welcome to For Now.

This blog started in ’07 as a replacement for a large hand-coded site on web design, Chanticlear. It had become too cumbersome to keep current but I kept a few pages and added my interest in science and technology. I’ve also added some of the tech support articles I’ve done for friends and groups. Some articles get little interest and some get heavy traffic even years after they were written. You never know.

For awhile, I kept a few of the old pages on a secondary site, linking them here. That ended in ’10 when I went to grad school. But I have restored a few colour tables I still find useful. See the tabs above.

The name is a play on the idea of the present now: being about what’s current, and about whats temporary and changeable.

I worked in David-Head-59software development and web applications for about a decade and am currently writing a philosophical book and some articles. 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.

Hope you enjoy my musings…
