alchemy : \ˈal-kə-mē\ : a process of transmuting a common substance, usually of little value, into a substance of great value.


My name is Miles Macleod.

I post here infrequently for my own learning. The goal is to shed light on the underlying forms on a variety of topics ranging from technology, financial markets and climate science. In the process of doing so, I deep dive on subjects and take a first principles approach to understanding the fundamental truths.


I operate at the intersection of finance and technology. I am fascinated by the broader macro technology revolution, which I believe we need to redirect and accelerate. I am focused on finding ways to leverage these techno-advancements and capital into climate initiatives.


“What’s the world’s greatest lie?’ the boy asked. ‘It’s this: that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what’s happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That’s the world’s greatest lie.”

Paul Coelho
