The Sufficiently Advanced Dad

Technology is rapidly changing the world we live in, but just about everyone is aware of that. What I don’t think anyone knows for sure, though, is how technology is changing us. The implications of portable computing, ubiquitous access to the internet, the cloud, and everything else happening around us are vast and largely unknown.

I’ve started this blog because I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about what technology is going to mean for my family and me, and I wanted a place to write it all down. I’m not a classic “early adopter” of new technology, but I will quickly start using something if I think it will make our lives easier. I also spend a lot of time thinking about what it is going to be like for my two daughters to grow up in this online world.

So this blog is going to be about what it means to be a sufficiently, not overly, advanced father and husband in a world of constantly changing and evolving technology. It is also going to contain my thoughts about raising a first generation social media child, and the observations I make while doing so. What I write here is mainly for myself, but you are welcome to join me. I would love to hear your thoughts and comments as well.
