I think humanity is running a race, trying to improve our ability for global self-control and long-term planning quicker than our ability to change the world improves; the consequences of losing would be dire. I am interested in how that self-control of a society can become better by its members becoming better informed, and how software can support that. I am interested in tools that can scale, are available to the less privileged, and empower their users - like free/open-source software, the ecosystem of the web, and social software supporting peer content creation and knowledge production. I prefer to work for organizations which try to advance the state of learning, thinking or decision-making in society.
