Life goals include never being a charlatan and peaking sometime around the year 2050.
I live in Seattle with my wife, three kids, two cats, a dog, and the maximum number of chickens allowed by the Seattle Municipal Code. I work at Amazon Web Services, helping our customers use the cloud to meet their sustainability goals.
I like thinking about organizations, emergence, the Internet, food, democracy, democratization, art, religion, policy, music, history, consciousness, governance, Borges, surfing, and data. Swimming in natural bodies of water with my family is my favorite thing to do.
In the beforetimes, I gave a lot of presentations for work. Some of the last ones were:
Lessons Learned from Staging Petabytes of Data for Analysis
Primitives, not Frameworks
Democratizing Access to Big Data
Data on the Web
Data Driven: The Road to Increased Impact
Creating value through Open Data
Opportunities and Challenges Presented by the Digital Economy (video)
