About Neil

Hi.  I am a computer scientist and lawyer doing technology policy in D.C.  I’m fascinated by the emergent order in the world around us and have been ever since I read James Gleick’s book “Chaos” when I was a teenager.  I am a classical liberal who is also interested in Stoic philosophy, XBox gaming, applied mainline economics, and Getting Things Done.  I was previously the acting Chief Technologist at the Federal Trade Commission. Now I am the senior research fellow for technology and innovation at the Charles Koch Institute.
