My Aux Brain

For over 50 years, I’ve been on a quest to enhance my cognitive abilities. From my involvement with the Apple Newton Team in the late 1980s to experimenting with various early digital devices, the allure of augmenting my brain’s capacity has always been compelling despite the disappointments along the way.

My affinity for Apple products has persisted through the decades, with early Macintosh computers offering a glimpse into a future where our brains could be externally supported. My tenure at Apple allowed me to contribute to pioneering sound-centric capabilities in computing, a legacy that has left a profound impact on the digital world.

Before my time at Apple, I spearheaded efforts at Bose to embrace digital technology, championing the integration of audio-digital signal processing (DSP) into our products.

Now, I’m poised to take the next leap forward with a Personal Knowledge Network (PKN) powered by artificial intelligence (AI). With over 10,000 notes accumulated from Day One, Apple Notes, and The Archive, I’m ready to integrate AI and bidirectional graphical linking to create a sophisticated auxiliary brain. This endeavor combines my existing knowledge, AI expertise, and creativity to generate a wealth of media-rich content, including blog posts, books, columns, and TV shows.

Harnessing the potential of this PKN represents a convergence of technology and personal ingenuity, marking a significant step towards unlocking new levels of cognitive augmentation.
