About This Website

I often feel like it’s important that the public is informed about critical matters involving them. To most people, iPhones and laptops and the internet are magical things that nobody really knows how they work–at least that’s how I felt before I had begun studying at the best school in the world for computer science. Now, I understand that these magical technologies aren’t so magical at all. In fact, every part of the technology is carefully designed and fully understood by engineers out there in the world.

I started writing this because I wanted to put down all these thoughts I had while sitting in meetings and while working about the place technology has in my life, and the lives of the millions of users my coworkers were impacting. For starters, there are more mobile phone users than people who brush their teeth and the average mobile phone user spends 2 and a half hours per day on their device.
