Hi everyone. I'm Ben Reinhardt, a technologist trying to enable more amazing science fiction to become reality. Professionally, I'm the CEO of Speculative Technologies, a nonprofit research organization that's working towards an abundant, wonder-filled future by unlocking powerful materials and manufacturing technologies that don't have a home in other institutions. In the past, I've helped people start companies in Singapore, worked in Silicon Valley at a unicorn startup, a VC firm, and my own failed startup; hung out at NASA while doing a PhD in Space Robotics; and got a bachelor of science in history. Some of my more well-known writing concerns how DARPA works, private ARPAs, and energy abundance.
Ask me anything! I will be here Tuesday, February 21st. Use the comments below to add questions, and upvote any questions you'd like to see me answer.
