Blockchain, The Metaverse, and Nephele, Mother of the Centaurs

In January 2020, I flew into Dallas to meet my good friend and fellow education activist Lynn Davenport.

You can […]

Blockchain Education, A Ticket To Digital Serfdom

What is blockchain? Those in power will say: Blockchain is a secure way for people to own and control their digital footprint, the data they create living through devices and wearable / implantable / ingestible technology in “smart” environments. In essence, it is a digital ledger that keeps track of EVERYTHING across a decentralized computer […]

Twitter Thread Questioning Blockchain, The Spatial Web, and Digital Health

Big Brother, Blockchain Babies, Coded Religion, and “Good” Behavior

I wrapped up my previous post about the Alice.si blockchain social impact platform noting that digital identity is THE KEY element required to make speculative markets in human capital data function. The game of gambling on life outcomes requires: 1) unique personal identifiers 2) predictive analytics protocols to set the odds 3) constant monitoring of […]

Human Capital Futures: Racial Capitalism on Blockchain – A Presentation Given at the Unitarian Society of Germantown

I was grateful to be invited to participate in a day-long conversation about race and technology last week at the Unitarian Society of Germantown in Philadelphia. The morning’s discussion was centered on Clyde Ford’s wonderful memoir Think Black, which touches on family, corporate culture, race, and social engineering. Ford’s father was the first Black software […]

This narrative […]
