Scientific Management, Robo-Bees, and Digital Babies – Synthetic Pretenders, Part 1

In the winter of 2021, I traveled to Salt Lake City to present on the threat of human capital finance, education technology, and sensor networks to children. Those talks are available here and here, slides here, and site visits here. Utah is the beehive state. I opened with a slide about bee populations that featured […]

Texas “Blockchain Matters” Public Hearing Debrief With Jason Bosch and Lynn Davenport

I’m still working on my eugenics, synthetic biology and digital ID series. Hope to get the first posts on that up this weekend.

Taking The Temperature On Digital Babies – OSINT And Digital Eugenics

For the past week I’ve been researching a post that will link the rise of synthetic biology and digital identity, under the banner of climate justice, to California’s history of eugenics and fears of “dysgenic degeneration.” Today someone tagged me on an article,Tamagotchi kids: could the future of parenthood be having virtual children in the […]

Soulbound Tokens, Trust Networks, and California’s Big Test

This talk offers insight into the philosophical and technical underpinnings of […]

In 2018, David Roux, founder of Silver Lake Partners and trustee of Jackson Laboratory, delivered a speech at the University of New England in which he predicted a future where managed human breeding would be carried out through the normalized use of genomic medicine at scale. The title of his presentation was “Social Trauma: Technology […]

Conditional Cash Transfers – Mexican Testbed For Behavioral Scrip / Impact Investing

As much as people today are discussing digital currency linked to carbon allowances, few seem interested in zooming out to examine the origins of assistance-based social engineering. This is a shame, because tens of millions of families in over 70 countries are now controlled through conditional cash transfers. Mexico was a testbed for programmable money […]
