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 writing has focused on the gulf between Silicon Valley rhetoric and practice, with a particular focus on the politics of openness and sharing in the digital world. I am currently writing a book on the sharing economy for OR Books, with the working title What’s Yours is Mine.
