I spend the majority of my time thinking about the infrastructure of society – from legal to cultural to economic to scientific – and about what the future infrastructure looks like. If you’re reading this and you work in law/culture/history or otherwise find these questions interesting, I would love to talk to you and would especially appreciate you getting in touch.

You can contact me at alexey@guzey.com or via Twitter or Telegram. A 15 minute call. Also feel free to ask me for advice.

I’m most inspired by Augustine of Hippo, Aaron Swartz, and Freeman Dyson.
