(low) tech writer

A collection of essays documenting the beautiful, old-school, low-tech, places and things that still exist here and there in and around Silicon Valley (and the other high-tech centers of our civilization). In my attempt to honor the things that don't get enough press in this technological society, I've written about everything from objects found in my kitchen (functional and edible) to almost- and already-obsolete tools like typewriters ... and sprinkled a fair bit of philosophy in as well.
Never anti-tech, but pro-(low) tech, these fifty essays chronicle the kinds of things and places that more-or-less hold their ground against the overwhelming flood of leading-edge tech that we are surrounded by.
