I am the author of The Roots of Progress, a website about the history of technology and industry, and the philosophy of progress.
I am also the creator of Progress Studies for Young Scholars, an online learning program about the history of technology for high schoolers, and a part-time technical consultant and adviser to Our World in Data.
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.
The Roots of Progress is where I write about the history of technology & industry, and more generally the story of human progress. This and related projects are my current full-time focus.
Separately, I write here sporadically about startups, tech, business, and life. My writing has been featured on All Things D and Software Lead Weekly.
