Sam Gentle

2017 Technologist in Residence at CULTURE AT WORK

The theme I have in mind is "Behind the Silicon Curtain". I believe that all technology can be beautiful, but there is a tragic difference between mechanical and electronic technology: you can open up a watch and see the gears, you can look inside an engine and watch the pistons, but how do you open up a computer program to see what's inside? The only people who can are those with years of training, but there's no reason this has to be the case. I'd like to find ways to draw back the silicon curtain and show others the beauty I can see in software.
