Why I created Exponential View

Exponential View is a highly-cited newsletter read by more than 20,000 industry insiders. 

The convergence of a range of exponential technologies brings incredible change to our businesses, the polity, and society.

We all need to join the discussion.

My objective is to help people understand the issues and then become participants, not spectators in this ever-changing world.


The juiciest source I know for what’s new in the world of artificial intelligence, biotech, and the near future.

- Kevin Kelly, Senior Executive Editor at Wired Magazine


about me

I am an Internet entrepreneur with more than 20 years of experience in the industry.

I was the founder of PeerIndex, a social analytics firm which pioneered techniques for understanding reputation & authority on social networks.

PeerIndex was acquired by Brandwatch in 2014.

I've invested in more than 30 companies with exits to Microsoft, Bloomberg and Amazon, amongst them. 

I mentor founders, particularly those working in the fields of machine learning and AI.  

My career started in journalism, as I covered tech for The Economist and The Guardian.
