About the author

I am the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent can be found at LosingMyReligions.net. Currently, I am President of One Step for Animals; previously, I was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before my unfortunate encounter with activism, I was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). My hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. I live in Tucson with my soulmate and reluctant editor Anne, along with the occasional snake and scorpion.

The Future of Intelligence

Nick Bostrom has a new book, Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies. Although I like the feel of dead-tree, carbon-storing books, in keeping with the spirit of the topic, I'm reading it on a tablet.

If you have membership with New Scientist, you can read this excerpt: We must prepare for superintelligent computers
