What's next in Social? Content Curation!

What happened? The rise of the "Web 2.0" (yes, I just wrote that…) and the second wave of Social Networks (Anything after Myspace, including Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, etc…) has led to an incredible growth for shared content. Anyone seeing anything interesting could share it with their friends, family, or professional circles, in a click or two. ![Flipboard](

What Startups can learn from Brighton's Best Burger Truck!

For those of you around Brighton, or if you've been stalking me, you might have noticed a place I check-in to every once in a while for lunch, called The Troll's Pantry. It is a burger truck in Brighton that serves the bes

My Charity Water Campaign, and why I decided to pledge my birthday for charity rather than ask for personal gifts!

A little bit of context A few years ago, I stumbled upon an individual (and organization) that had a profound impact on me. Scott Harrison was a club promoter in New York City, and realizing that his wealthy life was going nowhere, he decided to use his skills to help people. There is a much longer story to it, but for the

Reasons To Learn More

One of the (many) things I've decided to do includes re-learning to code (and once I get up to a better level, design is next.) This is not an end goal in itself, but I want to improve in order to understand more HOW and WHY things work. Here is a more detailed explanation: When you start a digit

Experimenting with writing

Directly coming from my father is a lovely yet annoying attribute: I want to do All Of The Things. By that I mean that my gift and curse is that I always geek out about a specific topic at various rates, may it be a day or a month, before moving on to another topic. After a certain amount of time has passed, I will eventually get back to the original one, but it can get very annoying when you don’

Late-night inspiration about the Tech Meritocracy

I got very inspired tonight when I saw this tweet on my Timeline. Mr Duane Jackson, when a teenager, learnt to code while trafficking drugs too. He got out of prison ten years ago today, in 2002, and started his company in 2006. One of the many things I live about the Web & Tech Industry is that it's still a meritocracy: hard labou

Arrogance VS Reality: avoiding mediocrity

I'm not the best. At anything. And I've never been. And I probably won't be. Ever. I live, study, and work in a fast-paced growing industry, where there is a shortage of qualified workforce, "talent wars", and most companies are looking to meet young potential applicants, whether they have an opening or not. They would rather not search for you though, and thus comes Social Media: a way to prom
