Optical & Quantum Computing  - 
 
"Quantum computing has such extreme promise that maybe I could be wrong, but I've said all my life that if [a machine] could do a million things a second, if it did a billion, if it did a trillion, it would never solve that problem [of true intelligence]. So raw speed is not a critical factor to help solve problems. Quantum computing is like looking at [a problem] from so many angles at the same time that you can solve things that were unsolvable before, so it does have promise. But I don't know enough about quantum computing to know if I can trust it..."

Hacks and Attacks  - 
 
"The driving force behind these continued breaches of electronic data is the black market demand for personal information, which has become 10 to 20 times more valuable than US credit card numbers. Unlike credit cards, which can be quickly cancelled, medical identity theft is not immediately noticed by patients or providers. So criminals can use the information for longer periods to buy expensive medical equipment and drugs for resale, or file fraudulent insurance claims.."

Introduction

I am currently CTO for crowdfunding startup dana.io as well as the VP of Sponsorship for VeloFemmes Canada CCC

I am a strong community development advocate with years of board experience including the BC Council for International Cooperation (Treasurer), VeloFemmes Canada CCC (Secretary), Free Geek Vancouver (Chair), Vancouver Community NetSociety Promoting Environmental Conservation and the Artists' Legal Outreach Society

My technical expertise includes implementation of commodity and re-purposed hardware, open standards and free software - Ubuntu for servers & workstations, Android for tablets and mobile - as well as the Bitcoin e-payment protocol and social media strategy and web service development using the Drupal web community framework.

I have an abiding interest in martial arts, am an avid meditator in the Theravada Buddhist mindfulness tradition, and help maintain webservices for the D.I.Y. Dharma community and Birken Forest Monastery.

Philosophically I find the intregral vision as outlined by Sri Aurobindo, Ken Wilber, et al. the most compelling worldview. I am part of the team that developed metaintegral.org.
