Long Description"The questions he poses about the relationship between technical change and political power are pressing ones that can no longer be ignored, and identifying them is perhaps the most a nascent 'philosophy of technology' can expect to achieve at the present time."—David Dickson, New York Times Book Review " The Whale and the Reactor is the philosopher's equivalent of superb public history. In its pages an analytically trained mind confronts some of the most pressing political issues of our day."—Ruth Schwartz Cowan, Isis

We just completed a major upgrade to the backend with a minor face lift to the web site. More changes are coming soon!

We completed the upgrade that changed the way we store company data and connect it to the product details. This required a set major database changes and some minor but important web site changes.

Over the next couple weeks we will roll out various other web site upgrades that make use of these new changes and provide you with better access to our data.

As always, if you see anything odd on the site, please let us know and we will get it fixed right away.
