Josh spent 10 years teaching chemistry in a tough urban school district, running a recording studio, and doing materials synthesis on the side at a local university. Josh has always been a busy guy, but in his not-so-spare time he wondered how he could give some power back to the average individual. How could he help to diffuse the ever-growing consolidation of our democratic principles? His answer was simple, use technology to give individuals and small groups of individuals the media resources of the entrenched organizations. Allow average people, regardless of ideology, the opportunity to fairly compete by sharing their message with other citizens.
Josh's Favorite Quote: "Objection, evasion, happy distrust, pleasure in mockery are signs of health: everything unconditional belongs in pathology." - Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil
The Issue Josh Most Hopes that RBV Will Raise Awareness of: Keeping the scientific process free of politics
