My name is J. Paul Duplantis and I am a podcaster and essayist on the intersection of technology and human interests where I focus on the threats and opportunities found in current iterations of communication technology.  I have spent the last 20 years observing the evolution of the web from a bottom-up, open source, distributed platform to the top down, siloed, ad monetized solution we see today and have made it my mission to create awareness and promote the building of technologies to help reverse this trend. 

I am always looking for new and upcoming technologies as well as innovators in the decentralized and immersive space to feature on this blog and podcast in the future to help carry these ideas forward. I am also in the process of establishing a consultancy to help introduce these technologies to social venture capital/social impact investors and to help organizations harness emergent tech to engage staff, management, customers. 

Contact me if you would like to talk.
