This page provides a list of links to some of my written works, drawn from my full set of blogs. The list includes the links that I am especially likely to share with others, and some of my most-read blog posts. (In the case of the computer blogs, I have selected just a few representative posts; there are quite a few that have had numerous readers.)
I doubt anyone will love everything that I’ve written. Dissenters and supporters alike are encouraged to present relevant thoughts at the bottom of any post, in any of my blogs.
