Digital artist. Creator of hacks. Developer of trust. Illustrator of dreams. Years in the social tech universe.
How to Tokenize your Fame quickly?
Did you know that a popular graphic designer named Beeple (Mike Winkelmann) sold “Every day's: The First 5000 Days,” for $69.3 million becoming the third-most-expensive work of art sold by a living artist? After the works of Jeff Koons and David Hockney? It’s a collage of every piece of art created on a daily basis for the past 13 years. What??? Yes, the art is getting a little hype because everything now is moving in digital. And this new phenomenon is attracting a strange brew of not just artists and collectors, but also speculators or even curious people. After years of creating free content for platforms like Facebook, Instagram, etc every artist, creator by any means is getting now the return of his pride and a reconnaissance of his value. We can call this movement a hype art bubble. It’s the moment when it’s possible to truly “own” and sell digital art for the first time. It will end the disruptive power of tech giants who took for granted all the free valuable content we gave them. I’m a digital artist too and for a long time, I see possible a legitimate market online where unique things can be sold at the right price. Therefore an NFT of “Buying Myself Back: A Model for Redistribution” just sold for $140,000 plus fees. The non-fungible token is linked to a photo of the model Emily Ratajkowski, standing in front of an Instagram post showing a photo of herself shot for Sports Illustrated, that was blown up and mounted on canvas by Richard Prince.
Democracy: Do we really need it?
The ancient Greeks are credited with creating the very first democracy, although there were almost certainly earlier examples of primitive democracy in other parts of the world. Democracy, in its pure form, is the rule of the strong over the weak, the majority over the minority. But is democracy overall just a political system based on the vote? A system controlled or manipulated? Does democracy have a deeper meaning?
What does every investor want in a Pitch?
A pitch is usually a 10–20 slide presentation designed to give a short description of the company, the business model, and the startup vision. Priority for the pitch should be to capture the attention of those involved. Should work well on its own as a visual document, but it will primarily be used as a tool to tell the story of the future business. Substance in it must be elemental easy for anyone to grasp. Sometimes, a minor flaw in the presentation can transform all the work into a bag of nonsense.
Why AI could be dangerous?
You didn’t notice but past years of scandals or big problems involved AI. Throughout all, some AI systems were tested on live populations across the globe with some consequences. Autonomous cars killed pedestrians, a voice recognition designed to detect immigration fraud ended up canceling thousands of visas, another made cancer incorrect recommendations, then a big company build a secret censored search engine for China, and without people knowing, social media giants got massive data breaches.
Internet of Value Bubble.
When most people think of blockchain, Bitcoin or crypto instantly comes to their minds. But the potential that excites tech-savvy and many others goes far beyond financial transactions. They all learned its effect on two things: Privacy and Security. For most people who have money, almost all of them consist of an entry in a list at a bank. If money is just a bunch of computer entries, then it won’t be valuable unless there is careful government regulation of who can create those entries and how. This has changed abruptly. Cryptocurrencies propose a different solution. (the crypto world increased from 35 million people in 2018 to 101 million people in 2020 and is still growing) The computer technology itself can be harnessed to limit how many computer entries are created. Those entries will be allocated based on a social consensus of who is supposed to have them, all in a totally decentralized way with no government or regulation. Holy shit!! Yeah, this technology called blockchain creates decentralized money from a combination of computer algorithms. Cryptocurrency will not intermediate banks and governments and will not favor traditional incumbents, they will rest their power to create money in a form of direct social consensus. But it’s not only about crypto and money yeah?! No. Blockchain enables the exchange of any asset that is of value to someone, including stocks, votes, art, securities, intellectual property, music, scientific discoveries, and even tokens from games.
Why do people repose blind faith in leaders?
Using the Internet we generate enormous amounts of data about us, our interests, and our ways of spending free time. For these big chunks of data, marketing companies or other parties compete with each other in order to gain us with messages about their products or beliefs. In this battle, the greatest achievement is when you or your company can conduct a marketing campaign and predict with great confidence the outcome of the campaign, regardless of the end goal. Oh NO!!! How could they do that?
How to Become a Hacker?
When you hear the word “hacker,” what do you think about it? A person typing fast meaningless keys into his laptop/computer.
Freedom is an illusion.
Does this title anger you? Bother you? Not concern you at all? Is freedom an illusion? As incredible as it might sound, the vast majority of us are not free. Holy mother of all saints!! Depending on the country in which we live, we might feel more or less a type of freedom.
