Tip of the Spear

Passionate, experienced and an infinitely curious entrepreneur, Jim shares his cautionary tale of our species and technology at a crossroads. Tip of the Spear is the product of his life’s work at the forefront of technology and change.

 

"Our use of the technologies we have invented are now poised on a blade’s edge. Either the Tip of the Spear levels the playing field in the areas of Governance, Finance and Education, or we use these extraordinary technologies to create further concentrations of wealth and increased inequality. We have a choice: we can use our newly connected planet to have real conversations, or we let it devolve into a rabble at the gate."
