Hi. I’m Nathan Taylor. I write about technological change and its impact to society. Focusing on what I’d call the near future, roughly the next 5-20 years.

The immediate future is written about enough. The far future is prone to include magical tech like cheap fusion power that may never arrive. With a nod to William Gibson: I write about technology that’s already here — just not evenly distributed. Venture capital overlaps this time horizon. But VC is a difficult timing is everything game, betting on particular people and companies. What I’m interested in is slightly different: how tech trends play out at an industry or societal level.

So I write about exponential trends like Moore’s law and genome sequencing. But also human cognition, AI, space, evolution, economics, science, and most fundamentally about how technology endlessly coevolves with society. Though sometimes I post on a topic just because it’s interesting.

I named my blog praxtime as a take on praxis, learning by doing. Where the doing is writing, the best way to drive thoughts to clarity. Often a post starts one way, but after rewrite and research goes another. This is a personal hobby. Family and job come first. So I write irregularly as time permits. All are welcome!
