Technology Vision and Leadership
Introduction
Lincoln Cannon is a technologist and philosopher.

He has over seventeen years of professional experience in information technology, including leadership roles in software engineering at Ancestry.com, where he mentored management and reorganized teams for major strategic shifts, and Symantec, where he reduced costs by millions of dollars through process automation and globalized teamwork; and in marketing technology at Merit Medical, where CIO Magazine and others featured him for innovation.

Lincoln is a leading advocate of technological evolution and postsecular religion, and is a cofounder and president of the Mormon Transhumanist Association, which has become the largest religious Transhumanist organization in the world. He holds degrees in business administration and philosophy from Brigham Young University.

Lincoln is married with Dorothée Vankrieckenge, a French national, and they have three bilingual children. In his spare time, he enjoys touring, backpacking, watching science fiction movies, playing strategy games, reading and writing philosophy, cheering for his children at sporting events, and discussing just about anything controversial over good food with family and friends.
