We are a collective of researchers, writers, communicators, and thought leaders. We are building a new platform, a new operating system for the 21st century. We shouldn’t penalize the people of this century by clinging to outdated concepts from the last. We want to be clear about what doesn’t work and lead the way forward with experiments, evidence, and cost/benefit analysis.
