An idea worth spreading

The world around us is alive with interactions and connections - everything from human connections to our relationship to the weather can be thought of as an intricate series of mappable connections and influences. As our ability to add technological sensors to these environments increase, we begin to understand these relationships more, and our ability to view and understand our relationship to our place in the world - or in the universe - becomes clearer. The question at hand is when do these analysis cross the line between information for the greater good and an invasion of privacy?

I'm passionate about

My background in both science and technology have given me an immense interest and curiosity in using technology to engage, inform and connect people with the universe around them.
