If you’re new to my work this is the page for you.  I’ve written 1400 posts over 11 years and these are some of the most popular and well referenced from my career. In 2011 I published Mindfire: Big Ideas for Curious Minds, a collection of 30 of my most provocative essays. If you like what you see, follow me by email or on twitter to get my good work as it’s published.
