You are on the web based free and member site for Read Multiplex.
We also have the Multiplex 👓 app found only on the iOS App Store and it currently has a subscription for the Multiplex Magazine that is currently on hiatus. Although you can subscribe to this magazine it will currently only be for back issues.￼
Multiplex is an experiment, an experiment that will be on going. An experiment in publishing as I am not a professional writer nor will it be likely any contributors would be professional writers. Much of the content for Multiplex will be direct results from first hand empirical research that I am personally working on or other researchers are working on. Multiplex will also follow the work of other great researchers that are inventing new technology or new uses for existing technology.
The experimental nature of Multiplex means that content can be dense and sparse at times. What we won’t do is write just to fill in space. We will aim to have regular content for the member-only area, This means that if you choose to become a member you are supporting the work of the writers and not an exact number of postings. There will always be free content to be found on the site as well as the Twitter feed.
Members receive very early and sometimes exclusive￼ access to content, sometimes months before seen elsewhere. Some of this content will be actionable to the extent it can become a powerful strategic advantage to companies that apply it early.
The DNA of Multiplex will be firmly planted at the intersection of what is known and what is just becoming known. The nature of the content will be at the precipice of what learned experts think is possible and what is thought to be impossible. Some content in the past would have only been available under private consulting arrangements worth thousands of dollars per report. Members get this all for just a $99.99 base annual subscription price. For the cost of a coffee house cup of coffee per month you get some of the most highly prized tech insights in the world.
We are approaching an epoch in time where the rate of change is accelerating at such a pace that identifying and digesting the change can take hours a day. I begin every adventure of my life with this manifesto:
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back — concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:
that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.
Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”—Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1773
We are on a great adventure that has no clear historical context. Together we will write this history and make sense of it. I have deep gratitude for you sharing this adventure with me. Thank you.
