Richard is the author of “Elm in Action” from Manning Publications, and the instructor for the Frontend Masters Elm workshop. When he’s not writing about Elm, teaching Elm, speaking about Elm, or hosting the Philadelphia Elm meetup, he likes to take a break from his job writing production Elm at NoRedInk by kicking back and working on some of his open-source Elm projects. Some have said he’s “into Elm,” but he’s not sure where they got that wild idea.
Today, digital products and companies are not just changing the way we live our lives, but also playing an increasingly influential role in public policy and governance. We have reached a point where consumer goods produced by technology industries are beginning to reshape what it means to be Human.
This year, we are going to explore advances in biohacking and transhumanism and their implications for humankind. Will they be to our benefit, further enhancing quality of life? How mindful should we be of the potential social and ethical pitfalls whilst we transform?
