Bachelor of Mathematics U of Waterloo 1987, ACM SIGCHI Co-Chair 1990 &1992. Canadian. Formerly software and large-scale systems integration professional. Taught over 500 people C++ in the late 80s. Kickoff for several large projects including NCR Co-operation (1989), Algorithmics RiskWatch II (1992), (now Conexys) FaxForward (1996) and (now Lavalife) Webpersonals (1998), on all but Co-Operation I was responsible for the major APIs, user interface/experience decisions, and in the last two for the underlying support infrastructure. Many other clients (70 total) in finance, telecom and other privacy-sensitive fields, online/VoIP services and communications, continuous improvement, customer relationship management, wiki and semantic web technology, and integration of all above w/voice, throughout 80s to 90s. Developed a capital asset model sufficient to operationally bridge macro- to micro-economics in 1999, innovative aspects of which include defining human capital as social, instructional and individual, each with different operational characteristics, plus infrastructural, natural and finally financial, which is a projection or agreement to abstract the other five (with dynamics of its own). Generally a fan of Kahneman, Sen, Thurow, James Galbraith, Daly, Costanza, Jacobs. Have worked on large scale infrastructure, energy, transport and general urban and land use policy since 2000. Authored three clauses of World Mayors agreement on climate change (2005). Presently an advocate of biodiversity backed money perhaps mediated by gold/carbon/commodity, of narrowing the 'price of life gap' and 'digital divide', also an advocate of various schemes (Keynes, Geitner) to discourage trade surplus and systemic imbalances, and full cost accounting. Researching how scientific and spiritual advice inform and influence market values. Interested in discussing these topics and practical use of operational capital asset models for large scale infrastructure (transport, electricity, building) decisions especially "smart grid" issues. Available for private or public presentations on cleantech, green economics, infrastructure from regional/municipal to large corporate scale, and other more mundane topics. Some people may find me very funny but depending on your audience you may wish to ensure they are not armed. Particularly on the subjects of diversification vs. ethical investing, social responsibility or green marketing or rural broadband or agriculture, you're likely to hear some unusual opinions.
