I'm an experienced entrepreneur, biophysicist, supporting multiple start-ups & boards, including Genetics Advisory Council of Harvard Medical School & a Trustee at Santa Fe Institute and an associate founder Trustee at Singularity University.  I'm the inventor of twisted pair computer networking patented 1985, I commercialized the first internet sound for Apple & Windows in 1986 and then the first sound used over internet (ARPANET) in 1987 MP1&2.  Later I was issued the "telephone controlled entertainment" patent.

I helped found and grow Singularity University at NASA Ames: Here's recent piece on Singularity University by Bloomberg (video 5min) Here's a "singularities" presentation by Reese Jones 2012 (video 44min) I cofounded a pair of synthetic biology start-up companies working on "Democratizing Creation" (Cambrian Genomics CGI & Genome Compiler Corp GCC) Here's a building Singularity University article by Wired UK

I'm learning YouTube as a channel ReeseJones1 at included are my 2012 TEDx talk "antibiotics making us fat?" at TEDxSF 7 Billion Well.  

From my talk: "singularities" in our personal life: changing worlds from black holes or stock trades, life, death, orgasm and heart attacks to transporting matter, virtual or synthetic biology, constructing an "internet of living things" - life made from data and parts. Singularity University case studies of: 
1) Transportation of matter 
2) Read/write virtual printing of matter 
3) Read/write synthetic biology building living things
4) Theory into 4 real companies in 4 years

Here's a thought: Perhaps internet is conscious already -- but we're unconscious about that: more on Transcension Hypothesis also I consider Phones = synapses > computers for internet life (biochemical + electronic) 

More thoughts: Phones + Singularity: There's about 4 billion phones with 7 billion population using them for voice calls, text message, camera, social & entertainment (but only 1 billion of these phone people earn over $1,000 US dollar/month) for shopping & stories, including books, movies, magazines, music, spoken word, twitter and newspapers that are being both written and "read" on Phones.  Your phone becomes your ID, key, memory, wallet, entertainment, tricorder, connection to health & others.  Phones & internet become a nervous system for our species including sensors, memory, immune system, ethics & simulation (forecast & intuition). Phones are also synapses to exponentially emerging internet of "living things" that enhance our ability to address global problems like never before 

Singularity University to change the world. Singularity University overview on 60 Minutes New Zealand 

What are singularities?: sometimes people get confused about the word "singularity" and presume special meaning to a word -- that generally means "unpredictability"

Singularity is a term from physics, used as early as 1916 by german physicist Schwarzschild related to a theoretical sizing of event horizon for a black hole as calculated from Einstein's field equations of general relativity... "a singularity" generally means some combination of circumstances changing such that some classically predictive theory or models become "unpredictable"... ("The Singularity" is not "only one")

Synthetic Biology infrastructure is read/write/design DNA genes, CAD tools for with output writing DNA apps that can boot-up as life forms (DNA is code executed in cells as computers).  Life is information, code, in memory as DNA or binary, in processors as cells in water.  Infrastructure companies are needed to build living foundries: and and others grow an internet of "living things" and iGEM for kids Glowing Plants for use in Genome Compilers with DNA Laser Printers(tm) I joined the Genetics Advisory Council of Harvard Medical School to expand the reach of these efforts. 

Biomolecular perspective visualizing this nano-machinery naturally in cell  

Consciousness Evolving: Richard Dawkins explains how human beings are waves then what is memory & consciousness; to extrapolate: Synthetic Theology

Global perspective: evolution of bio/machines & human genes, memes, bemes into expanding consciousness Earth life activity viewed over time: from global observation perspective or view semantic/linguistic internet  

Global perspective electronic infrastructure via planetary skin institute monitoring trillions of mechanical (& living) things & sensors an internet of things from millions of objects via  near earth orbit

Inter-Planetary perspective Moon Express venture, like FedEx for moon deliveries, robotic mining & other apps infrastructure construction delivered by Earth time as viewed from the ISS

"humans evolve from one planet to two, like species evolved from water to land" - Elon Musk).  Global infrastructure 2011 SU company  is building an internetwork of autonomously "routed matter packages" analogous to internet "routed data packets".  Matter or biology can be transported physically of sent at speed of light as information then printed into physical matter including living biology at destinations (like mars)

Cosmology perspective on black hole as physics example of singularities as used in gravitational cosmology. The universe may be infinite or possibly a multiverse.  

Thought on books: History of 500 years of portable text language becoming electronic, via internet & phone text messaging of course. Even the The New Yorker, a classic icon of abstract text literary prose (on paper, subscription & ad monetized), but June 2009 print edition cover art was created on a Phone (not with a camera, but finger painted onto a phone, a change away from paper for photos & text) and by 2010 The New Yorker introduced iPad distribution , Synchronous "broadcast TV" is becoming asynchronous internet video browsing via iTunes, Amazon, Facebook, Wikipedia, YouTube, G+ & Google TV

"book": was an artifact, broadly distributed, after cave painting's went mobile onto clay tablets, and then lighter longer paper scripture scrolls, similar but "the book" was cut up into "pages" of limited size and bound into shapes to fit inside saddle "bags" strapped to horse or human children (used for "book information transport", for a 400 year period of time). "Books" were used during the time before internet became mobile. Some early internet services reference "books", like ebook or facebook in names but are no longer physically constrained & bound.

In the early 21st century, except for few "pack rat" people & museums keep books -- often found near LPs, CDs, Tapes, Floppies, DVDs, thumb drives, news "papers", white papers, magazines, brochures, maps, receipts, yellow pages (one of the last to go) and other information storage technology "artifacts" typically stored in stacks or on something called "book shelves", a common furniture of the past century, these book shelves added a 3rd dimension to walled information (holding these hand portable information packages)… commonly used before information could multi-dimensionally animate, be searched, & be interactive...

Is among the 20 most beautiful lakes in the world to 17th place. The park covers an area of 33,000 hectares and includes 16 lakes in succession, connected by waterfalls.Plitvice is the oldest national park in Southeast Europa.All'interno the park there are also many caves of which only a small part is agibile.I lakes are formed by two rivers: the White River and the Black River, which flow in the river Korana. The waters of these rivers are rich in calcareous salts (mostly calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate), from the dissolution of carbonate rocks forming the geological structure of sito.Questi salts are precipitated by vegetation, forming layers of travertine , a sedimentary rock recently. Over time, these deposits forming real natural dams that act as barriers to water, growing by about a centimeter per year. At one point the water pressure breaks these natural levees, opening new paths in the ground.

This mechanism, in fact common to all the calcareous water, in Plitvice has assumed a particular importance.
The beauty of the National Park Plitvice, Croatia, is increased in the second round of the New Seven Wonders of Nature.
