Do you enjoy good food? How about technology? Jonathan Brill is an inventor working at the intersection of technology and deliciousness! He believes that innovation is changing our relationship with food at a scale that hasn’t occurred since the invention of agriculture. Over the next decade, these changes will force us to dramatically re-imagine our approach to environmental policy, health and culinary aesthetics.
