David Ryan Polgar: A Champion For Responsible Tech

David Ryan Polgar: A Champion For Responsible Tech

This interview was done in the Fall of last year. For various reasons including a global pandemic and pure laziness, this has been gathering digital dust on my digital shelf. But David Ryan Polgar and the team at All Tech Is Human are doing important work so late or not, this is a good introduction to their world.

Since this interview, David Ryan Polar and All Tech Is Human have been doing significant work to advance the movement of Responsible Tech. They’ve created a job board for Responsible Tech, issued an extensive report, Improving Social Media: The People, Organizations and Ideas for a Better Tech Future, launched a Slack channel, and are building a University Responsible Tech Pathways Program. 

If I were to sit down again with David, which I hope to do again in the future, I’d want to get his thoughts on 

  • Google’s firing of two leaders of their AI ethics team 
  • The January 6 insurgency and the role that social media played its planning and implementation 
  • Law enforcement’s use of cell phone location tracking 

and so much more that has happened since this interview. That will have to wait until the next time we can talk.

Privacy-By-Design in a Contact Tracing App: A Conversation with Micha Benoliel, Co-Founder of Coalition App

Privacy-By-Design in a Contact Tracing App: A Conversation with Micha Benoliel, Co-Founder of Coalition App

Nothing like a good pandemic to rapidly teach us new phrases. “flatten the curve”, “shelter in place”, “social distancing”, “asymptomatic”, “herd immunity” are just of few of the many terms we’re all getting to know and use. has compiled a hefty list of coronavirus terms. Now you too can you can learn more of them or confirm you know them all. (don’t feel smug about that!)

Contact tracing is a term that will be increasingly important as we search for ways to safely resume social activities. I recently had a chance to speak with Micha Benoliel who co-founded the non-profit Coalition Network. Benoliel and his team have been working on decentralized, bluetooth-based networks for 10 years and in 2014 produced a mesh network phone messaging app, FireChat. This messaging app lets users communicate without an internet connection by connecting phone to phone. (that’s the decentralized part of it). Originally launched for Burning Man, it was quickly adopted by the protest movements in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

This same team, now working under the non-profit company, Coalition Network, quickly developed a ‘privacy-first’ contact tracing app, Coaltion. Listen to how Micha Benoliel explains how a privacy-by-design or privacy-first app works. We all need to understand contact tracing and how the inherent risks to privacy can be mitigated.

DigDec FinTech Teaser

How is FinTech being used in developing markets? Are the trends pointing towards incumbent players adopting digital strategies or are startups entering the consumer and business markets with services that will supplant the existing players?

And as these newer technologies are adopted, what mix of regulatory forces and market forces will determine the companies that end up on top? These and other questions are posed in this brief intro on FinTech in emerging markets.

DigDec Conversations: InfraTech

DigDec Conversations: InfraTech

InfraTech is a shortening or mashup of Infrastructure Technology. It covers physical infrastructure such as bridges, tunnels, energy tech, and airports. It also encompasses education, healthcare, and transportation. In this episode, David Halpert, founder of Prince Street Capital Management discusses what’s going on in emerging markets with respect to infrastructure in all its forms. Join us for insights on a world of business that many of us need to know more about.

DigDec Conversations: Financial Inclusion

DigDec Conversations: Financial Inclusion

Financial inclusion. What do people mean when they use that term? Is it a social movement or is it a business opportunity to address the needs of a vast market of people who have no bank accounts, credit, or access to eCommerce? The simple answer would be yes to being both a social movement and a business opportunity. Financial inclusion has been a hot topic in recent years, and social and technological forces are converging to make it a significant part of economies in emerging markets.

Once again, I had a chance to speak with David Halpert, founder of Prince Street Capital Management, to get his perspective on the meaning of financial inclusion. What it means to these economies, to people who are either, ‘unbanked’ or ‘under-banked’, and how these trends present an investment opportunity. And he contextualizes these trends as part of the larger DigDec, i.e. Digital Decolonization, trend being espoused by Prince Street Capital Management. This is another don’t-miss episode.

In this episode, we talk about trends in HealthTech in emerging markets where there are both significant opportunities as well as challenges.

DigDec Teaser


More and more of the world economy is going digital. Whether it's buying plane tickets or applying for credit card loans or looking up healthcare prescriptions, the world is shifting toward a more data-driven and more digital economy.

Today, US & Chinese companies account for 90% of tech market cap. But there remains a huge question – will the rollout of digital services across the developing world be a “colonial” economy run by global multinationals from the US and China, or will it be more local?

We think it is likely to be increasingly less centralized and more distributed. Though we still believe that US and Chinese technology companies will benefit from the digitization of emerging and frontier markets, we think local companies will benefit too.

In daily headlines, we see momentum building for “digital economic nationalism” where local entrepreneurs and governments want greater control over their digital assets.

We define this concept as Digital Decolonization, or DigDec – a process by which entrepreneurs, companies, governments and consumers in developing markets reclaim their digital economies and ecosystems from global multinationals, and develop indigenous solutions for local problems.

We believe this is a global movement with ramifications for technology, for e-commerce, for financial services, for healthcare, for electric power, for infrastructure and for so many other sectors.

Homegrown champions, with help from regulators and political leaders, are helping to build value and wealth in their societies. Homegrown champions are improving local customer experience by creating products and services that appeal to local tastes and customs. And homegrown champions are leapfrogging multinationals by adapting and improving on business models pioneered in the developed world.

We believe DigDec is one of the most important developments in globalization at this point in history. Find out more by listening to David Halpert, the founder of Prince Street Capital Management and a champion of the DigDec thesis, on A Better Mousetrap podcast on Spotify.

Prince Street Capital Management: A talk with David Halpert on Digital Decolonization

Prince Street Capital Management: A talk with David Halpert on Digital Decolonization

Digital Decolonization is a term that will reshape how we think of businesses in, and investing in, emerging markets such as in Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia. And this is not a matter of semantics - of po-tay-to / po-tah-to.

How an idea is framed is important when it comes to gaining wider acceptance. ‘Pro-choice vs. Pro-life’ or ‘freedom fighters vs. revolutionaries’. These are linguistic framings. And they represent conscious efforts to define a worldview.

Join me in my talk with David Halpert, for an in-depth look at his investment company, Prince Street Capital Management. This is very much about Digital Decolonization and how it will affect people in a world that is now dominated by FAANG-BAT, i.e. Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Google, Baidu, Alibaba, and Tencent. David knows this world intimately and offers insights gleaned from years of investing in emerging markets. This is a good one. Have a listen.

Wonchang Terry Choi: The Start of a Career in Alternative Assets

Wonchang Terry Choi: The Start of a Career in Alternative Assets

A Russian, a Columbian, and a Korean walked into a bar. No, this isn't the latest joke that seeks to elevate one group at the expense of others. This is a story of three immigrants elevating the U.S. They do this by joining forces to apply skills, ambition, and grit to create an investment company that will, in turn, elevate the companies they invest in. This investment company is the newly formed 13Ventures, the brainchild of Katya Dorozhkina, and Diego Berrio. I leave it to you, the astute reader, to guess who is Russian and who is Columbian. 

Today's podcast shines a spotlight on Wonchang Terry Choi, who, as a teen, came from Korea to the U.S. to study. With limited English skills and a strong desire to be special, he excelled in High School and is a recent graduate of Fordham's Gabelli School of Business. And now he works as a Junior Partner, Investment Principal at 13Ventures. This is the beginning of his professional journey so his story has just begun. But his intelligence, curiosity, drive, and love of finance will make anyone want to spend time listening to his story so far. Pull up a chair. Click play.

Elusio Zafar Alcalde, Founder of TaxMap

Elusio Zafar Alcalde, Founder of TaxMap

Benjamin Franklin said something like, "There are only two things certain in life, death and taxes" While perhaps a bit fatalistic, it has a ring of truth to it.

My recent conversation with TaxMap founder, F. Elusio Zafar Alcalde, tells me that cryptocurrencies are growing up and accepting at least one of life's certainties, taxes. What might seem like a dry topic is anything but when handled by Elusio. Join me in digging into this topic that all real businesses, and people not living off the grid, must contend with. An unexpected gem: Elusio's enthusiasm for creating a business in the U.S. and specifically in New York City. Sometimes it takes a fresh set of eyes to appreciate what's all around you. Here's a bit of what our import from the U.K., Elusio, had to say, 

"NYC - the energy of the city - the serendipity of the city as well is amazing. There’s nothing like it anywhere else around the world. You can meet anybody and share an idea, and build something… "

And from the looks and sound of things, Elusio Zafar Alcalde is doing just that.

Bob Bennett, A Smart City Leader Helping Cities Better Serve

Bob Bennett, A Smart City Leader Helping Cities Better Serve

When people hear the title Chief Innovation Officer (CIO) they typically think of someone employing the latest cutting edge tech to solve a big problem. Bob Bennett, is more creative than that. This former CIO of Kansas City, MO, founder of B Squared Civic Solutions and Chair of the Cities Today Institute solves problems with whatever tools fit the job. To borrow a metaphor he used, 'not every problem is a nail.'

The specifics: Bob oversaw a wildly creative solution to the problem of deer going onto airport runways - cattle. Yep. Moo-cows. How does that work? Apparently deer hate cows and won’t go anywhere near them so by leasing the land, surrounding the runways, to cattle farmers the city was both able to earn income while solving a serious safety issue at their airport. 

Hear the many remarkable things achieved during Bob Bennett's tenure as Chief Innovation Officer and hear about the one that got away. This is going to be one of my favorite interviews for a long time. I know you'll enjoy it.

Chris Gillespie, Subspace: Swarm Building Software

It’s tempting and facile to say that Subspace is trying to “…boldly go where no one has gone before” but in this case it’s true. They are building a platform on which developers can ‘swarm build’ software. The developers review each other’s code in real-time, vote it up or down, and make suggestions, all toward the goal of advancing a software build. All of these forms of contributing to a project are compensated. Not only writing code is valued on this platform. We’ve found them early so listen to my talk with Chris Gillespie at the birth of this new celestial object.

SAM AI is a CRM (Customer Relationship Manager) platform. Their aim is to simplify CRM so more people can benefit from the advances in big data and artificial intelligence. How? One way is to make an interface that you can query with conversational speech. NLP (Natural Language Processing) makes this possible.
