I write about the intersections of technology, politics, and economics. I have a PhD in theoretical chemistry, a long career in the software industry, and my book No One Makes You Shop At Wal-Mart is a left-wing game-theoretical investigation of individual choice and its problems. It has been used in several university economics, philosophy and sociology courses.
More recently, my critical writing on the gulf between Silicon Valley rhetoric and practice, and particularly on the politics of openness & sharing, has caught the attention, if not the agreement, of leading lights from various “Open X” movements.
Also, you may remember me from my articles in The Literary Review of Canada, The New Inquiry, The Guardian, or Jacobin Magazine.
