Fear & Loathing is an irreverent, serendipitous look at today’s electronic connected lifestyle — focusing on technology, politics, law and popular culture. It reflects sometimes shifting interests and a wide variety of occasionally interesting tidbits compiled from a rather haphazard devotion to grazing digital content. Launched in March 2003 and sacrilegiously brought to you ever since by one intrepid blogger. Welcome back and enjoy!

Enter Fear & Loathing…if you dare!
