Markets and Technology

Thanks for visiting. Here you will find my thoughts on markets and technology, with more than a few diversions when I encounter something else that leads me astray.


Markets are everywhere. They provide a framework for almost all our interactions with the world. An exploration of markets led me into economics, human development, the process of innovation, and evolution. Evolution runs the market of survival for every species that ever lived on earth. Evolution’s survival market is the oldest and largest market on earth.


Just like markets, technology is everywhere and has been our symbiotic companion since an ape first picked up a stick. My passion in technology is artificial intelligence and its blue collar cousin — machine learning.
