The Telegraph Interview on the Future of Food

Earlier this year we were interviewed by The Telegraph UK for a longer feature about the future of food and emergent food technologies. The author focused her interviews on the entrepreneurs making lab grown meats or egg substitutes or meals-in-a-glass. But we appeared on her radar for holding views slightly outside the mainline of Silicon Valley thinking. As the article concludes, the Telegraph spotlights our concern that new food technologies may be brought to market in ways that create dependencies, especially in low-income countries. While we are excited about animal proteins that can be produced without damaging the environment and productive new crop lines, we’re conscious of the delicacy of international supply chains and the tempting nature of monopoly control of something as vital as nourishment.

Our own work in the field of food will continue to build food security in vulnerable communities by raising the sophistication of agro-ecological food production methods.

Our Singularity Hub article, "How Mobile Technology Can Bring Trauma Relief After Ebola"

Code Innovation founder Nathaniel Calhoun and I co-wrote an article for Singularity Hub about how mobile technology can be used to bring relief to people living with complex trauma in communities affected by the recent Ebola outbreak. You can read the piece here. It explores recent donor-funded projects that seeks to ameliorate the mental health of affected communities and profiles our own Community Mental Health app project, for which we're actively seeking funding.
