I am a hungry designer and developer living and working in Cincinnati, OH. I like my drink strong, my friends old, my music loud, and my work tough.

There are three people in procload’s collective.

  1. Implications of AI for the Economy and Society

    Andrew McAfee, Eric Schmidt, Reid Hoffman, and Jeffrey Sachs discuss with Erik Brynjolfsson (moderator) how to grow our prosperity through automation and AI while avoiding potential pitfalls at the January 2017 Asilomar conference organized by the Future of Life Institute.

    The Beneficial AI 2017 Conference: In our sequel to the 2015 Puerto Rico AI conference, we brought together an amazing group of AI researchers from academia and industry, and thought leaders in economics, law, ethics, and philosophy for five days dedicated to beneficial AI. We hosted a two-day workshop for our grant recipients and followed that with a 2.5-day conference, in which people from various AI-related fields hashed out opportunities and challenges related to the future of AI and steps we can take to ensure that the technology is beneficial.

  6. Alan Kay at OOPSLA 1997 - The computer revolution hasnt happened yet

    Alan Kay’s seminal 1997 OOPSLA keynote. Originally hosted on Google Video, copies of it are now only available from the squeak.org website as far as I can find. Putting it on youtube is my attempt to preserve a really important talk and computer science and computing in general.

  10. Ursula Franklin interview with The Current on CBC Radio (Part 1 of 2)

    Transcript: http://foursquare.net/cdfrey/blog/archive/2010/05/Transcript__Ursula_Franklin_on_Democracy_in_Canada.html

    "I am profoundly concerned not just about the state of democracy, but about the absence of democracy, of the erosion of democracy. For somebody like me, who grew up under Hitler, parents keenly aware what was coming on. Intellectuals who understood this argued with their friends abroad to say, don’t you see what’s coming? How easily fascism can take place, can take hold. I’m super sensitive to the erosion of democracy. "
