I started to share short clips here a few months ago. I brainstormed with someone yesterday on resources that might spur conversation, offer food for thought, and expand the narrative frame. So I compiled a list of primary sources. Maybe this thread of links will help you, too.
My focus here will be on education / training, because that is what comes after the blockchain medical passports and the e-government digital driver's licenses. I'd encourage you to spend some time looking over the Learning Economy's advisors. learningeconomy.io/team
This link is important. It's from 2017 and now only on Wayback Machine. This is the partnership of Hewlett Packard and Yet Analytics. xAPI is central to interoperable data aggregation for signals intelligence - finance / machine learning. web.archive.org/web/2020102803… Image

I want to do a short thread, because I feel there are folks out there who are intentionally misrepresenting my position about pandemic policies and genocide / eugenics. They are doing this to smear and marginalize me. No one has to agree with my analysis, but you can't erase it.
In the fall of 2018, I was in Vancouver waiting for a bus. The weather enclosure had an advertisement for Internet of Things agriculture and livestock management. I knew what it portended. Vancouver is a hot bed of disruptive tech and impact investing.
At the time I was in touch with James Kilgore, research associate at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign on e-carceration. I remember telling him several times that IoT tracked "free-range" livestock was the new open-air prison model. challengingecarceration.org/author/jjincu/

On my mind:
Genomics gathering at Alta Ski Resort (outside Salt City, UT) in 1984. Richard Myers, Executive Director of HudsonAlpha Institute of Biotechnology based in Huntsville, AL attended, shifted research focus to concentrate on Human Genome Project. hudsonalpha.org/qa-with-richar…
HudsonAlpha working on medical applications and bio-tech crops. Large campus headquartered out of Cummings Research Park, second largest tech incubator in US after Research Triangle in NC. Many defense contractors there affiliated with Redstone Arsenal. encyclopediaofalabama.org/ARTICLE/h-2070
Cummings Research Park is a 10-minute drive from Redstone Arsenal. google.com/maps/dir/Redst…

June 2018 I was at the SIPPRA event in DC - seed $ launching pay for success pilots. I asked about the ethics of tracking youth for PFS deals tied to social emotional learning - offsets of addiction and incarceration meant tracking students into adulthood.
This is a blog post I wrote about that event. wrenchinthegears.com/2018/06/24/a-1…

@hijodelcuervo noted Blackstone's acquisition of Ginger mental health. Pilot projects for 7+ years w/ universities tied to impact investing and digital "therapies." UCSF = Welcome Home SIB w/ Palantir. Duke = trials for Akili ADHD prescription video game. mobihealthnews.com/37976/ginger-i…
Ginger lead investors beyond Blackstone include Bessemer Venture Partners. Focus on ed-tech and blockchain credentialing. Chris Gabrieli is ed-tech privatizer. Brother John = MIT brain science. Dad electronic health records. crunchbase.com/organization/g…

Thinking about Dept of Energy, Oak Ridge & Tennessee where TLAV Ryan is based - outside Nashville. Do you think they're not aware of plans for PRIVATE investment markets in health outcomes tied to medicare EHR and wearables? Hashed Health is in Nashville.
Listen to the longer talk. The framing is that the threat originates OUTSIDE the US - that with some mental gymnastics the WEF isn't also US? Hashed Health is in Cristian's back yard. They've been in on blockchain EHR Medicaid for years. See John Bass. littlesis.org/person/345925-…
They are putting the masses on blockchain electronic health records so private investors can package and securitize health behaviors. The problem is the public private partnership - not the government alone. The state is doing BlackRock's bidding here. hashedhealth.com/himss18-blockc…

Now Broze's pitch for Cronos and bio-engineered cannabis. The company partners with Ginkgo BioWorks (AWS of synth bio) AND Technion in Israel. Hemp plants have many uses without needing to meddle with the DNA. Also note plans to track cannabis with quantum dot nano on blockchain.
2018 - Cronos Group announced it has entered into a sponsored research agreement with the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology to explore the use of cannabinoids and their role in regulating skin health and skin disorders. ir.thecronosgroup.com/news-releases/…
All of it will be laced with nano to track supply chains payments, etc.

Ok - so I am going to do a thread here pointing out a few bits related to the Alice dot si "blockchain for good" social impact investment scheme. I wrote about it first in June of 2019. My opposition to blockchain is not new! wrenchinthegears.com/2019/06/19/ali…
Alice dot si is one of over 200 members of "Blockchain for Social Impact" based in Brooklyn, managed by Consensys. The group partners with the World Bank - see 2018 conference. Projects align with UN SDGs and hinge on digital ID and sensor networks. blockchainforsocialimpact.com
Alice dot si tokenizes private donations on blockchain. Tokens support achievement of identified social outcomes as tasks and sub-tasks tracked via impact data on leaderboards. The first pilot in 2017 was homelessness in London - St. Mungo's SIB. blockchainforsocialimpact.com/members/alices…

I asked a former constitutional law professor to look at this 2020 Deloitte white paper meant to teach CIOs about spatial web smart contracts and AR/VR. He called it nonsense, gibberish. It's not; it's the planned future. Will break down some of it here. web.archive.org/web/2021052011…
Note the background of the authors. See that Bechtel is a professor at Notre Dame. Notre Dame is collaborating closely with the Vatican Bank on social impact finance. I wrote about that here. wrenchinthegears.com/2019/06/21/doc…
The game board. In this future your ability to interact with the built environment will be determined by your status - the tokens you have in your blockchain wallet, your digital identity. This is what will turn our world into an open-air prison. Maybe a nice prison for some...

Wayne McRoy sent me his book "The Autism Epidemic." In it he speaks of a GUID for autism research - blockchain EHR for people on the spectrum - envisioned in 2009. Backed by Simons Foundation $ (Cold Springs Harbor, Rockefeller, Brookhaven) hedge funder. watermark.silverchair.com/17-6-689.pdf?t…
The paper references hash codes for the global unique identifier, but doesn't specifically use the term "blockchain." academic.oup.com/jamia/article/…
The money behind the Simons Foundation is from James Simons. Founder of Renaissance Technologies, a NY hedge fund. Also a trustee of Rockefeller University, MIT, and Brookhaven National Labs (high-energy physics, nano, national security on Long Island). littlesis.org/person/14979-J…

I'm in Philly. We're a poor city. Kensington has been devastated by the opioid epidemic (thanks in part to Johnson and Johnson). Here, my friend Stephers offers insights into how nano and LEDs may tie into the addiction / impact agenda. This is important. pieceofmindful.com/2021/08/05/a-s…
See the video; note the posture. Stephers speculates there may be deterioration of the vagus nerve, brain to gut - possible nano-laced drugs & photonics under the el. My intent is to draw attention to this predation & social impact deals. This is my city. 153news.net/watch_video.ph…
This is a presentation I did in the fall of 2019 on the manufactured opioid crisis and the rise of social impact investing - with wearables. Use of addiction centers to scale human capital bond portfolios. wrenchinthegears.com/2019/10/20/pay…

Here's a thread on a topic TPTB DON'T want folks paying attention to - #IoB wearables with #Graphene tied to impact markets and data harvest towards the #Singularity, linking Sweden, Spain, and Stanford University. I did a podcast on it a few months back.
A goal of the mad scientists working on #IoBNT (see Ian Akyildiz at Georgia Tech, a University Affiliate Research Center for the DoD) that humans merge with a ubiquitous computing environment - bio-data and thoughts transmit in a suffused way using nano. futurecomresearch.eu/previous/2017/…
Right now they don't have the technology for all of those "dots" of sensor data to float out in an uncontrolled manner. They need to aggregate the data and send it out to interact with 5/6G+ "smart" environments in the spatial web. Hence the need for #graphene #wearables.

I keep thinking "what is real?" Mad scientists live in a "reality" where the world is envisioned ways normal people cannot fathom. I'm just coming to terms with the premise of nano-tech "utility fog." Aghast, really - from 1996. books.google.com/books?id=waNgb… ImageImageImageImage
