The Social and Economic Impacts of Technology on Society

Our speaker today is Joe Aaron. Joe lives in Sonoma, CA. His subject today is the economic and social
impact technology is having on society. 

Mr. Aaron is a graduate of what he says is the eleventh best college in Georgia, the University of West
Georgia. 

He is also a graduate of the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California, where he studied the
Egyptian dialect of Arabic.  

He began his professional career as an FBI Agent where he worked foreign counterintelligence
specializing in Middle Eastern affairs. From 1978 until 1981, he was the spokesman for the FBI’s San
Francisco office.

In 1982 he entered the securities business with Morgan Stanley where he specialized in traditional 
money management.  

In 1998, he founded Wood, Hat & Silver, LLC, an SEC Registered Investment Advisor, where he ran a
hedge fund until retiring in 2006.

Finding he had too much time on his hands, Mr. Aaron turned his attention to the future.  His focus is on
demographics and technology and the impact they have on our economy.
