For the last few years I’ve been focused on a problem — collecting human sourced recommendations i.e. new content — and getting it to people who need it.

The hardest part is that humans don’t always what new content they need. It is of course presumptuous to assume what…


Search results are impressive right now. We can access the exact information we want with minimal effort. It’s almost too easy. Start typing and before you’ve finished, the answer pops up.

Plus the best thing is that everyone has access. Anyone with Google or DuckDuckGo or Bing or their engine…


Human centered design has been around for a long time. It’s established in many product development or design processes and regarded as an effective way to understand a user’s needs.

You fear you’ve missed something important in your feeds. In…


First a caveat. I don’t know how established ‘Biocentrism’ is as a theory. My interest in quantum physics led me to theories on reality and consciousness and then I discovered a book published in 2017 called ‘Beyond Biocentrism’ by Robert Lanza (with Bob Berman).It attempts to make some sense of…
