This website will undergo significant changes in 2021. First, the domain name has been sold. Visitors will not be able to find the site at livemodern.com after the new domain owner publishes their new website. In the meantime, we are looking for a buyer for the content, someone who wants to continue the mission of the website. If that is you, contact marshall [at] take-note.com. I will provide details.
