I'm Wes De Silvestro—currently a senior at Harvard College studying Government.
I'm interested in the intersection of progress, technology, and politics. I think a lot about how the latter two can be applied to the former and also what other tools are missing. I started this blog as a way to further explore these topics and help me figure things out.
Currently, my focus is on improving governance, starting from the bottom up.
In the past, I've:
- Cofounded a climate tech startup (YC W20)
- Worked as a political data scientist
- Deployed civic tech for the City of Boston
- Founded a PAC in Florida
- Taught CS50
