I wrote an article about the cybernetician Stafford Beer for a left-wing art magazine, and I'm looking to expand it into a book. My background is in mathematics (algebraic geometry) and I've worked on medical data integration for the last dozen years or so. Tired of making tech billionaires richer, I want to learn about co-operatives. I have an idea for a residential education co-op for high school students. I want to turn Beer's ideas into libre software. He/his pronouns.
