A thought leader on transformational technology, financial innovation, regulation and laws, entrepreneurship and business, Wingate argues that society’s centrally managed gatekeepers – governments, journalists, and corporations – are incapable of imposing order on the chaos of our decentralized, online existence. His talks present an alternative in which software and algorithms,
rather than being a threat to our way of life, can supplement and improve these outdated institutions.
Along the way, he helps people and businesses connect new models for economic success, supplanting data-controlling middlemen and giving people access to markets and audiences on their own terms. Wingate presents a vision of what he calls Social Capitalism that emphasizes transparency, objectivity, and integrity so that human beings can thrive and participate with direct benefits in what will be an evolution of creativity and collaborative innovation.
