Preserving and improving life is what matters.

Preserving and improving life is what matters.

Technological advancement is the key to both preserving and improving life.

If the purpose of life is preservation and improvement, technological advancement is the key enabler.

Biggest Emerging Industries

May 6th, 2014 No comments

Elon Musk: How To Be A Billionaire That Saves Our Planet is possibly my favorite documentary:

Beyond Elon’s target industries–energy, space, robotics and transportation–there’s still many limitless industries with technological innovations opportunities in biotechnology, (eg. Stem cell research), quantum computing, energy, food production and space.

Beyond having basic comforts, there is possibly nothing more important a human can do than advance technology. Technological advancement can help preserve life on earth and enhance humanity’s quality of life.

I think one of the best lasting legacies anyone can leave on the planet is technological advancement. I think the people who solve a major disease like cancer, are doing a humanity a greater service to humanity than the person who donates $1 billion to charities (not to diminish the generosity of a large donation).

Building a Track Record

April 16th, 2014 No comments

When I ask about someone’s track record, most of the time they tell me their years of experience. Years of experience doesn’t tell me much except that the person likely has accumulated knowledge. Knowledge can be both good and bad. Bad knowledge could be a “limiting belief” — something that prevents someone from experimenting and performing better, I look for problem solvers -and performers — not people with years of experience.


I prefer seeing data like the following:

1) Rankings versus peers – Relative to others, how well do you perform?
2) References from respected/trustworthy people – Will respectable companies and people vouch for you?
3) Financial performance – How did you measurably contribute directly a company’s financial performance?

Writing Software for the Human Body

Writing Software for the Human Body

I agree with Ray Kurzweil’s notion that humans will be transcendent at a point.

I think  programmers will want to write software the modifies/enhances human health with applications such as the following:

  1. Creating/testing smart drugs
  2. Replacing/enhancing organs
  3. Replacing/enhancing stem cells

If you have a practical application in this space and need financing, please contact me directly through either LinkedIn, or Facebook. If I’m not personally interested, I’ll provide you wtih some contacts who can help.
