This is pretty close to how I envision Batman vs. Superman.

Dropping your phone under a lawnmower and watching battery fragments burn in the grass probably works.

That's what I did and you should too.
You wiped your Android phone clean before you traded it in. But your text messages, emails, pictures and Facebook key are probably still in there.

I'm tearing apart some weird signal generator built in 1945 because I'm tired of it sitting in my office.

Yup.... I've got a growing collection of bits and bobs I've taken from machines of this sort with the intention of creating something awesome.  +Jaime Cooper used to use them to make jewelry, but she's too busy building websites and destroying people in the Destiny crucible nowadays.

Further proof that the internet has desensitized me.

I wasn't phased at all.

I just found one of these in my basement and +Jaime Cooper​ coerced me into taking the time to identify it.

Now that I know, I feel terrible that I've not managed to market any of my creations given that my worst ever ideas make more sense than the CueCat.

That's pretty much the worst review a product could ever receive.

Story
Tagline
A man in search of a treasure hoard to sleep upon.
Introduction
I believe in the power of technology to overcome the limitations human civilization finds itself saddled with.  I am, at heart, a Transhumanist.  I feel we can be much more than we are now.  I believe in peace, love, freedom, and progress... but I know that achieving any of them requires vigilance and resolution.


My Family
I am a husband to Jaime Cooper and a father of two children, Cash and Jade.  


My Interests
My interests are varied, covering various physical sciences, technology in general, internet culture, and even design.  I'll comment on synthetic intelligence in one post, green architecture in another, and Cascading Style Sheets in a third.

The only common themes are Steampunk, Transhumanism, and Doing It Yourself!   


My Qualifications
While I probably qualify as an expert in a few fields, I rarely comment on them.  In fact, I completely avoid talking about one of my careers!  I am at best an experienced practitioner, when I talk about web design, and at worst an merely avid reader, when I talk about most science. 

My actual education is in Philosophy, where my main interest was Cybernetics and complex systems in general.  Everything else has been one of those learn-as-you-go things.

My Career
I have two full time jobs- so I'm rather busy.  Luckily my wife is my boss for one of them and she lets me spend time on Google+.  

PureNyx Design is my family's web development and marketing support business.  I do the front end sales and consulting and the back end server support.  My wife does all the design and copywriting.  At PureNyx, I help small businesses create and utilize a world class web presence.

I'm also a long-time employee at an investment firm. There I act as a technology consultant, advising the small businesses the firm is affiliated with.


Why I'm Here
I like to write about science, technology, and design.  On Google+, I often comment on recent developments.  My goal is to mix a bit of humor with enough information to spark further discussion. 
Bragging rights
I am a Registered Corporate Coach, I have 5 investment licenses I never use, and I always wear black because I'm cool like that.
