Social media & the press are currently incentivized to drastically exaggerate narratives of division. This in turn creates more division & the downward spiral continues. I hope to build tech that changes these incentives. I believe there is much more love than hate in the world.

Every shower temperature control is different. This is a good example of primitive human-robot interaction.

Sometimes I meet a person and feel as if I've known them my whole life, like our minds are shadows of the same being. Maybe all of us are connected in this way if we pause long enough to see it.
