Steven is a good contributor and is always willing to ask questions and raise thought-provoking issues — some quite profound. At the same time, he is willing to listen to others. His writing is always clear and well-organized. His writing is crisp and coherent. He doesn’t seem to have any trouble getting his thoughts down. His ‘strange utopian’ paper, “Stefo Boanerges” (“Crowned Son of Thunder”), a combination mesage from the future and lyrical chant was an amazing tour de force that I can readily see published somewhere. His paper, “Thinking and Acting Tools: ICTs and Communities” addressed a variety of important issues including the role of Buddhism in the information age. Steven regularly goes beyond the required amount of work.
