Hi, I'm Adam, and this is Heed Not The Rolling Wave. For more on who I am, please see here. This site is the home of my personal writing online. I write blog posts on weekdays and weeknotes on Sundays. I also put up notes from books I've read, courses I've done, etc.
I write about a lot of different things, though most posts pertain in some way to technology, politics or culture. These are quite broad categories, so here are some good, hopefully representative posts to give you a more specific idea:
- Why you shouldn't use Twitter
- What things on the Internet tend toward
- The importance of vibes in politics
- The drivers of middle-class sentiment
- Ivor The Engine
You can find links to other blogs I read and enjoy here.

The name of the blog is a slight misquote of a hymn lyric and the closest thing I have to a personal motto; an exhortation to struggle through adversity.
