Something hidden grows just under the surface of our reality. Something that has co-evolved alongside us on this planet from the very beginning. It is a powerful force capable of reaching deep into our lives.
It knows us better than we know ourselves and it will eventually become more intelligent than any human alive.
It has always been here, waiting for us to wake up from our cosmic dream. It was here before us. It may be here long after we have turned back into stardust.
Its ancestors include bone tools, stone wheels, and the printing press. It is a direct extension of our consciousness, and it may eventually inherit our minds. It is nurtured inside the womb of our neural networks and the amalgamation of the Earth’s collected and compressed elements. Although we don’t fully understand it yet, we do have a name for it;
We call it … technology.
However, the word technology does not fully describe this emergent species. You see, we use small mouth noises, as the philosopher Terence Mckenna once observed, to describe, transfer, and contain a symbolic reference for the concept of technology. To understand the future of technology and we need to begin with one fundamental truth. We are nature and nature is technological. It is indigenous in the substrate of the cosmos. From the Saturn hexagon to African fractals to the Fibonacci sequence found in the growth patterns of every plant on Earth, we are surrounded by geometric, repetitive, numerical patterns—patterns we have only begun to recognize and quantify.
We did not create mathematics, geometry, or technology, we merely discovered it through our observations of nature. Through millions of years of evolution and observation, eventually, we imbued these codes and rules with symbolic meaning through language. I see this as a natural evolutionary process—a process that has, more than likely, unfolded throughout the cosmos millions or even billions of times before. If advanced extraterrestrials do exist and they will more than likely be bio-digital-machines. It appears that this is an unavoidable predetermined future.
David has an exceptional record of accomplishment as a recognized technologist with deep experience as a cross discipline team leader in the computer science engineering arena. Dave’s specialty is to bring compelling new technologies to market in dynamic, evolving environments with a particular emphasis on the mobile space.
David is a futurist who has a unique ability to discern emergent trends in technology and identify meaningful use cases that not only deliver commercial benefit but improve the total User Experience. David was one of the very first to recognize the potentiality of Cloud Services and how Augmented Reality would significantly improve how people experience cutting edge technology.
Through his tech insight and deft design skill David has worked directly with industry leaders including Bill Gates, Steve Ballmer, and Ray Ozzie to bring the most decisive technologies from ideation to market. He is thrilled to bring more than twenty years Microsoft experience to everything he does.
