I’m currently exploring tech’s growing social and political influence and the underlying values driving its behavior.

I became interested in this topic after noticing a marked shift among friends in tech in the 2020s: from primarily building and funding startups, to building movements and engaging with public institutions. I wanted to understand why this was happening from a systems perspective; key events that drove this change; and also how tech’s story rhymes with prior historical industry wealth booms.

This project was initially funded thanks to an Emergent Ventures grant, with additional sponsors along the way.
