“The vast majority of the mass in the universe is completely invisible. It’s not made of atoms – in fact it’s not even made of the things that atoms are made of: protons, neutrons, and electrons. It’s something completely different.”

– Joel Primack, Distinguished Professor of Physics, UC Santa Cruz

Does Privacy Matter? - G Craig Vachon @ TEDxSantaCruz

This TEDxSantaCruz talk is one of 16 surrounding our theme of “Open” at the second full-day TEDxSantaCruz event held September 15, 2012 at the Cabrillo College Crocker Theater in Aptos, CA (Santa Cruz County). www.tedxsantacruz.org Craig thinks he is the luckiest person he has ever met. As an angel investor, futurist and entrepreneur, Craig has helped small companies devise business plans and raise ~.1B from VCs to enable their growth, [and the creation of many worthwhile jobs]. He and his tolerant wife have lived and worked for more than 10 years outside of the US, in such diverse locales as Tokyo [twice], Hong Kong, Taipei, Pune India, Vancouver BC and London UK. His most-current role [and investment] is at AnchorFree, the world’s most-popular consumer VPN. AnchorFree provides its users with security, privacy [do-not-track] and unfettered access to the World Wide Web from anywhere [even in places with government/other censorship]. Craig hopes to someday invest in truth and teleportation machines. He is a poorly-talented stone sculptor, water-color painter and classic convertible collector. Craig lovingly makes and drinks his great-grandmother’s limoncello. In thespirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx
