The Operatic

An advocacy project for the development of technology and its use in a socially responsible manner.
Hi! I'm James, the creator of The Operatic.

This is an advocacy project for social programs, technologies, and industries that accelerate technological progress towards the end goal of post-scarcity, while ensuring all of us, not just the most well off, benefit from it.

I love technology. I love thinking about the future. I love thinking about the social and political issues that arise from ever more advanced technology.

I will inform you of data-driven predictions about how certain technologies will affect different industries, I will describe possible futures that could arise if we are successful at achieving post-scarcity. I will show you things you can do in your own life to get us closer to that future, and ways to fight those that threaten to derail our progress or make it benefit only certain people.

Help fund my project and invest in an emerging technology at the same time by buying my designs!
