Jeff Bezos has always said if you wanna triple your investments, think in terms of the companies that will make a difference to the world now and in the future. For instance, technology is here to stay for more decades and maybe centuries to come.

So in other words, technology companies that will make people’s lives better are normally the ones that are great investment decisions.

And if there's a great time to start investing, it’s now. Amidst yet another market crash. …

If you want to learn how to think, you should learn how to write. — Jordan Peterson

When asked by his students at the University of Toronto, Jordan Peterson, the infamous author of “12 Rules For Life”, said that the best thing he can teach to a person is to learn how to write.

Well, writing is a skill that you can use to succeed in anything.

The clinical psychologist says that becoming a better writer is a means for becoming a better thinker and being able to arrange your thoughts in a coherent fashion puts your thought process in…

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Clubhouse. There’s no denying that there are too many social consumer apps nowadays. I know it can be extremely intimidating and overwhelming to have all of them and to use every single one of them.

It’s just a big dilemma. Do we actually need this many apps?

Social media has become synonymous with information nowadays. If you’re not in one, you’re in the other. You’re trapped in this notion that you have to be present with all happenings and not be missing out on anything.

Unless, of course, you have yourself a cabin in…

Companies working on self-driving cars now use Lidar technology.

Uber, Apple, Waymo, and Toyota all use it, but not Tesla.

Elon Musk even said,

“LIDAR is a fool’s errand… and anyone relying on LIDAR is doomed.”

Elon isn’t a big fan of Lidar, but if Tesla wants to win the ever-growing self-driving market, they need to combine the best of both worlds.

Lidar and Vision.

Or else it could be game over.

Rising above the mainstream

Microvision, a small tech company based off in Washington has 750+ patents on technologies on Lidar, display technology, and augmented reality. …

As a kid, I played with sand on the ground, dirt on my hands, and sun shines on my head. Who knew that at some point in the future, I’d end up in the playing field of ground zero for technology and innovation.

Then, you’re 22 years old and you find yourself in front of an opportunity for a project that can one day change the world, you have one choice. That is to grab it.

I had the opportunity to work with a serial entrepreneur — Adriano Farano — known for his ventures and initiatives not only in Silicon…


The more we progress technologically, the closer we get to reality.

Scientists are taking the computational boundaries we experience from within the simulation and applying them to the external computer doing the simulation. That’s an extreme assumption based on absolutely nothing.

I have been in the computer science field for 8 years now and the more we collectively expand our general knowledge in the areas of physics, mathematics, and computer science, the more we realize the true nature of reality.

Reading Nick Bostrom’s paper growing up titled, “Are You Living In A Computer Simulation?” got me hyped and excited about the idea of us being inside a computer simulation world.

Everyone talks about the principles and how-to of the startup world, but few people find the realistic, accurate, and real-world applicable techniques that actually can make a difference in your entrepreneurial career.

Travis Kalanick, the infamous co-founder of Uber, has made a name for himself by having differing beliefs and viewpoints in the business world. For instance, he applies a good amount of creativity when he tells a story in his keynote presentations.

Additionally, he tends to have a reckless and resilient mindset that is so contagious; it makes you want to found your own Uber.

I find Travis Kalanick…

A Reddit sub called WallStreetBets has gathered mass attention in the past few weeks due to one stock skyrocketing to a new record-breaking share price.

This happened when WallStreetBets, a subreddit of everyday day traders and investors, decided to buy GameStop stocks in mass while the share price was $18 to boost up the share price by a big margin and then sell.

Now Gamestop's price per share stands at $347 and is worth as much as BestBuy. A day-trader on popular Reddit community WallStreetBets has claimed to have gained on GameStop’s controversial 261% rally this month.
