Richard Faulk

Richard Faulk writes about old things, gross things, sciencey things, kids' stuff, brainy stuff and music. Like the Devil, he comes in many guises but has only one purpose. Happily, in Richard's case that single-minded purpose is to spread delight and edification to readers around the globe.

Okay, maybe that's two purposes.

After extended stays in Brooklyn and Los Angeles, and one long winter in Anchorage, Richard now makes his home in Oakland, California, where he thinks deeply about trivial matters.

We are always hearing about the Next Big Thing. Whether it is a new iPhone or the New World, the freshest and newest inventions, discoveries and fads loom large in the public mind. The impact that everyone thinks these "next big things" will have is often more important than the actual impact it generates. After all, if it fails, it will be almost immediately forgotten. THE NEXT BIG THING searches through 3,000 years of Western culture to find the colorful and key steps (and missteps) that led us to where we are today.
