About

About Alex: I’m 27, work at Social Capital, previously cofounder of Backtrack and ops at Sharethebus. Also on Twitter:  

I like to think and write about the future. The future is a really interesting place – we natively know both less and more about it than we think. My goal with this blog isn’t to try to predict the future: far from it. I don’t believe that anyone can really know the future with any degree of certainty. But I do believe that it is possible to be present to the right questions about the future. 

As an example, consider the following statement: (dated 2015)

“The real money to be made and lost off of Uber and the Driverless Car isn’t in transportation, it’s in Real Estate.” 

This may turn out to be true. It also may turn out to be entirely false: as Nick Bostrom previously put it, many of the points made in this blog are probably wrong.1 That’s not the point though: my goal is to help readers (and myself) be present to questions that they wouldn’t otherwise have thought about, so that we can each make our own individual forecasts.

Thanks for reading. If you’d like, please reach out at adanco (at) gmail; I’ll try to get back to you if I can!
