I am a designer, entrepreneur, educator, and speaker. I work on prickly systems design problems that lurk in our modern, yet evolving, political economy; I specialize in tools that make information markets work more efficiently. I am a Fellow at the Center for the Advancement of Public Action at Bennington College, where I teach topics ranging from networked knowledge ecosystems to risk management in global financial markets via classroom hedge fund simulations. In my spare time, I blog about political dilemmas and dissent in America. I live in Santa Fe, NM with my wife, daughter, and three dogs. I humbly believe that whoever has the information, the ability to parse it effectively before anyone else, and the will to act on it decisively....has the power.
