As a technologist Michael's research and advocacy explores how technological disruption effects art, culture and society at large. In 2018 he conducted a research project on the ecology of jazz as understood by JazzWeek's broadcasters, radio personnel, promoters, record label owners and musicians. The study was presented at the JazzWeek Summit broadcasting conference that he coordinated that year as part of the 2018 San Jose Summer Jazz Festival in San Jose, California.
