Hi. I'm Dave. I have a PhD in math, I like making things at Tech Shop. I like when science touches on social issues. Like cryptography and privacy, bitcoin and consensus, quantum physics and epistemology, the list goes on...

Recently I've been doing a lot of JavaScript. I'm currently working on a project that brings ideas from reactive programming to user interfaces on the web.

My favorite math theorem is the central limit theorem. It says that the fixed point of the convolution operator is a Gaussian.

A close second is Aumann's agreement theorem. Which codifies that rational people will only disagree if there is a breakdown in communication. If your martyr is my terrorist, now we know why.

When I look at the picture of me on the right, I'm reminded that our human experience is overwhelmingly on the inside.
