I am the founder of The Roots of Progress, a nonprofit dedicated to establishing a new philosophy of progress for the 21st century. I write and speak about the history and philosophy of progress, especially in technology and industry.
I’ve written for the MIT Technology Review and given interviews as a spokesman for the progress movement to BBC and Vox. I consult for Our World in Data, and advise fellows at the Foresight Institute.
I’ve also been an engineering manager at Flexport, Amazon and Groupon, and was at a few other startups as co-founder or early employee. Long ago I helped build a biotech supercomputer for D. E. Shaw Research.
Full resume on LinkedIn.
Although my full-time focus is writing at The Roots of Progress, I used to write here about startups, tech, business, and life (and still do sporadically). My writing has been featured on All Things D and Software Lead Weekly.
