In an age where tech news can be noisy, Context is here to help you find some signal — a resource for informative, approachable, and insightful commentary on the emerging technologies shaping our lives, the lives of others, and the world around us. 

Additional Information

What to expect each month.

Each issue of Context focuses on a theme that we explore through three lenses:

Technology in Society

…where we demystify technology and explore how it affects politics, global affairs, education, and more.

Technology and Culture

…where we highlight artistic achievements in providing unique commentary or insight into our relationship with technology.

Designing for Technology 

…where I run through unique principles on designing what’s to come, from AR/VR and intelligent systems to spatial computing and the next human-computer interface. *only available to paid subscribers
