Welcome to WiredCosmos!

I’ve been fascinated with technology (and the universe in general) for as long as I can remember. I saved up my allowance and bought my first telescope when I was 8 years old. I think it was around $15-20 – you can imagine the “quality” of my viewing experience but for a kid with an imagination, it was just enough. Around the same time, my father gave me my first computer – a Tandy TRS-80. This was my first experience with programming. Who remembers BASIC? I used cardboard boxes to build a mock space shuttle console in my room using some glossy photos NASA sent me in the mail as a point of reference. I would spend hours playing astronaut during the day and looking at the sky at night. I wanted to become an astronaut naturally (what young boy doesn’t?) and while that didn’t happen, I was hooked on the stars from the first moment I looked through that little telescope. I’ve been interested in gaining a better understanding of the universe (and our place in it) ever since.

What I Write and Care About
I am passionate about science, transformative technologies, space/SETI, and the history/future of humanity. I’m also deeply interested in the study of human interaction with machines/tech/non-humans and the intersection of law and robotics.

Thanks for reading!
