My Mission

I am committed to building a trustworthy cyber-architecture that connects humanity and protects the Earth our home.

I am focused on the strategic design of socio-technical systems-of-systems to overcome the pervasive faults of prevailing models: to create humane systems that are free, open, secure, portable, reliable, accessible, easy to maintain, energy-efficient — that respect our freedoms and privacy and are, if at all possible, antifragile.

I am here to learn and to work cooperatively toward a self-sovereign society.
