Hi! This is a repository for my ideas (usually related to technology / business / policy, or occasionally politics / social issues).
Who are you?
I’m currently a graduate student at Stanford studying law and business. My background is in software engineering and venture capital.
If I just want a feel for what you write about, where should I start?
Here are a few of my more popular posts:
Is software eating the world, or is the Star Trek computer not enough? - DeepMind’s protein-folding discovery can be viewed as innovation in the world of bits applied to an intractable problem in the world of atoms. But can the former alone break us out of innovation stagnation?
The Facebook naysayer conundrum - Many of the criticisms against Facebook are logically incoherent.
Surviving in a world of aggregators. Ben Thompson, one of my personal heroes, developed a framework, called Aggregation Theory, to understand businesses in the Internet age. This is a post about how companies can withstand the onslaught of aggregators.
Can I contact you?
Sure! Feel free to reach me on Twitter.
