“A far-flung AI meltdown might seem scary but the way machine learning is being used right now (optimising for dopamine hits) is dangerous and nowhere near as maligned as it should be.”

Writer / Ex-Data Scientist

What do you do?

I worry (loudly) about AI, data privacy and freedom of choice. Writer & recovering data scientist. Trying to make the internet a better place.


I'm doing my best to only build things that make people's lives easier, calmer, and more fulfilling. The internet has become a distraction machine, an untrustworthy sales tool, and an exploitative network that encourages the race to the bottom. I want to help fix that.

What should we read?

Amusing Ourselves to Death by Neil Postman
