My name is Andrew Smith.  I'm a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) who runs his own gym, helps run a tournament circuit called US Grappling, and enjoys learning about and telling people about tech innovations.  I'm extremely interested in the acceleration of technology and how it will affect everyone's future, and as such, most of my articles will likely reflect such a theme.  If you have any thoughts about anything I write, please share it with me!  I'd love to hear from you.
