Things you don’t know that you don’t know

I had an interesting chat with one of my German friends (who also happens to belong to the group I mentioned in Chapter 3: “What is the Primary Goal of Social Business?“). I was telling him about a story I was working on at the moment (“The lowdown on the current state in the Amanda… Continue reading Things you don’t know that you don’t know

Infinity vs URL

How many specks of dust are there in the universe? Very very many. Is each speck of dust unique? Perhaps, maybe, I don’t know. Vast is a quite short word, yet it spans such breadth, so many cases, across the universe. This little four-letter word almost extends beyond the outer reaches of human intellect itself.… Continue reading Infinity vs URL

Writing (by Machines for Humans)

Eradicating Estates, Building Pillars in their Place

Cover + Foreword + Introduction

I want to dedicate this to my parents. My father was a well-known economist. My mother was a less well-known architect, but a very caring person, and also designed most of the houses I grew up in. Both had a huge impact on my life, thinking, ideas, etc. This book project is intended to be… Continue reading Cover + Foreword + Introduction
