Matt's Words

I speak architect, strategic marketing, ASIC engineer, software developer and a web developer.

Specialties: Value innovation, strategy, leadership, marketing and getting down in the trenches to get things done.


I don’t know that Matt was afraid of death; I would say more that he was offended by the fact that we have to die. As an engineer, death was a problem that should have a solution. Matt’s solution was a hope that at some point in the future (preferably before his own death) we would be able to download a person’s brain to a computer so that he could live forever. My experience, and maybe Matt’s too after his parents died, has been that his brain was “downloaded.” It’s just that the computer happens to be my own brain, the brains of his children and the brains of everyone who knew him, a distributed network.

I also can’t help but feel like LiveMosaic is about as close as it comes to Matt’s brain being downloaded into a digital computer. It is the code that he wrote to build the system, the corporate site,, that promoted his vision as well as all of the stories, photos and videos of him and that he created on our own family website,

Head Touch

I had a dream this morning that reminded me of what I guess I would call Matt’s and my first date. We didn’t really go on very many dates in college, but there was one night where we did something together– I don’t remember what– and ended up back in my dorm room, lying on the floor, talking openly. At some point my roommate came in. When Matt and I started dating seriously, she told me she thought that would happen after finding us that one night.
