The inspiration behind this site is pretty simple. I liked a lot of the sites out there, Slashdot.org, Kuro5hin.org, etc etc etc... But basically, they were either reporting stories that I didn't care about or stories that were days old. So, I thought, what the hell, write your own. And that is what you see here today.

The main focus of this site is basically, in its essense, technology and how it interacts with our lives. Technology is all around us and there is a small list of everyday aspects of our lives that do not involve technology on some level or another. Even taking a poo involves some sort of technology. How many people do you know are still running out back to the Outhouse to expell themselves of previous engagements? Not many, why? The technology of modern plumbing. =)

As far as my background, I am a programmer. I work for a VoIP company based out of Des Moines IA called LightEdge Solutions. We're a one stop shop for all of your network needs. From managed services to voice to basic internet, we do it all.

If you are interested in writing an article, or believe that you have something more that you can contribute to the site, feel free to email me for help or simple use the Submit Story link on the main navigation menu.

Sligo!
