Much of human history is a story of conflict due to scarcity, from food to land and shelter. The scarcity-defining resource of the industrial world was capital. I believe the scarcity-defining resource of the digital age is data and attention. I want to do everything I can to help lawmakers meet the challenge of the new era.
I’ve been fortunate to build a track record of bi-partisan policy issues with various think tanks, government agencies, trade organizations, legislators, and campaigns on topics ranging from local broadband internet access, high-skilled immigration, and wireless spectrum auctions to cybersecurity, data property rights, venture economic impact by regulatory changes, and more.
There has been some fascinating work with the IEEE Artificial Intelligence & Autonomous Systems Policy Committee (AI&ASPC) that I’m a part of on self-driving car safety regulations, the role of machine learning in the justice system along with other issues.
The house of representatives Modernization Staff Association run by Ananda Bhatia (for Seth Moulton in MA-6) has some digital projects I’ve helped coordinate along with Code for America to make it easier for congress to automate and deal with some of their newfound digital challenges since 2020.
I occassionally review proposed technology legislation with the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance and cooperate with members of the New Hampshire legislature.
If you’re a candidate or legislator looking for assistance on technology policy issues, feel free to contact me. I’d be happy to work with you and your staff in making decisions on technology policy.
I also serve as an expert witness for law firms looking for technical analysis on the issues in their specific cases. You can find out more on my work with law firms and hire me through the expert institute or over email .
