About Andrew

I'm starting an open source, antifragile church for pragmatists. I look at the world and I see a large number of big problems looming over us (hyperobjects), inspiring fear, anger, disconnection, anxiety, and shame. For me the big ones are global warming, systemic income inequality, CRISPR, and the Singularity. I'm not a doomsayer, necessarily. I do believe that we (humanity) need to take a collaborative stab at addressing these issues, the sooner the better. I believe that open source methodology, blockchain (governance and tokenization), and the narrative of a church can combine to improve the chance that future trillions of humans exist in the future. I'm afraid that, like Icarus, we are flying a little closer to the sun than is prudent. I'm afraid that we do not understand the power of the tools that we are building and using. I believe we are building systems that constitute an existential threat to humanity. My church is called the Church of Existential Hope because I want to build an antifragile system focused on surmounting these issues, a system that can surf the chaos wave that is coming at us like a freight train, a system that can reduce human suffering at scale. People are isolated and lonely, more now than ever before, and it's not getting any better. I'm building this church in Sacramento, California, the capital of the 5th largest economy in the world. It's not going to be boring. Find out more here
