Dan Hughes has founded companies, non-profits, and think tanks with some of the world’s more interesting people. Most recently he founded Learning Machine to bring self-sovereign identity into mainstream use. Dan is genuinely curious about fundamental matters making him little fun but always up for careful or inspired conversation. Dr. Hughes does have degrees (though he questions that path save for the fine folks looking to enter licensed fields). How we are to take up the uni- of the university under the fragmenting conditions of cultural acceleration (the proximity of difference, information proliferation, etc.) is of particular interest to him.
Dan can be reached at @theyblinked or on Signal, but it would be better if you came and found him in person before he dies.
