Foglio's Field Notes

Leif Utne's random rants, musings and meditations

About Leif Utne

Welcome to my blog.

I’m a technologist, journalist, activist, musician, and social entrepreneur. When I’m not feeding my social media addiction, hanging with my family and friends, driving my son to soccer, or playing music, you can find me here spouting off about politics, technology, the media, and any number of tools, ideas, trends, and people that are pointing the way toward a world that works for all.

If you’re looking for a photo or bio of me, see below.

Curious about the name of this blog? “Foglio” is Italian for “leaf” — as in a leaf of paper, not a plant. There’s more on where the nickname came from here.
