Ideas:
“  As head of GLIA Foundation, and co-founder of GLIAnet PRIMER, I seek to create viable opportunities to engender greater human autonomy and agency, via computational technologies (or, "HAACS"). A chief goal is giving people tangible ways to counter the Web's "SEAMs" paradigm (in which companies and governments alike Surveil people, Extract and Analyze their data, and Manipulate their behaviors). My current focus is crafting trustworthy governance measures (such as digital fiduciaries) and inclusive "edgetech" applications (such as Personal AIs and symmetrical interfaces).  ”
