Author Profile

Life has taken many twists since my days as an aspiring musician in Santa Fe but even then I was dabbling in software development. I wrote my Senior Thesis on "Holistic Tonality," a sort of fractal music theory. Since then I've founded numerous software companies, sold a couple, partnered up and generally learned some of the lessons of life and business. As we all know, this is an ongoing endeavor! Now I have the pleasure of knowing my son is going to the same great school in the same magical landscape and my daughter is finding an equally fantastic path of her own. All along the was, my St. John's education has stayed with and informed me and compelled me to write my thoughts down. I hope some of you will find these thoughts of interest.

Wealth and the End of Money (Book)

Year of publication: 2018

Publisher: Self-published

Genre: Non-fiction

Description: In the future, via advanced, self-maintaining Automation and AI, involving no human labor, free Cosmic Resources can be turned into luxurious Cosmic Products of quality, beauty and usefulness, rendering notions of material wealth obsolete, including the notions and mechanisms of money and monetary systems that rely on it. This book shows us that in the same way DNA programs us (makes us) from two cells, by extension we can create fantastic systems that “program matter” to build everything we need, building on today’s technology—only requiring the will to do so. This important book shows the many benefits of doing so and the perils of continuing with business as usual. As the realities of automation and artificial intelligence unfold before our eyes, this book provides a roadmap for humane, ecological development and explores the intended and unintended consequences that are far-reaching and astounding. This edition is reorganized and includes a number of beautiful, detailed color artworks.
