    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.

    Pay Attention 

    Pay Attention.

    Without being actively involved, it’s challenging to be successful.

    Some of the most successful people in the world are very detail oriented. They’ll ask a lot of questions–very specific details and they’ll expect everyone around them is very on top of everything as well.

    Some of the most successful business associates I know would ask me dozens of questions throughout the day to be assured that everything was going smoothly. They would also expect rapid turnaround time.

    If you don’t pay attention, mistakes will happen and small mistakes become bigger mistakes when not monitored.

    7 Secrets to Success 

    7 Secrets to Success

    1. Do what you say you will – Be reliable
    2. Do what you say you will – Respect other people’s time
    3. Do what you say you will – Respect other people’s money
    4. Do what you say you will – Take turnaround time seriously
    5. Do what you say you will – Give clear upfront expectations
    6. Do what you say you will – Deliver or overdeliver a quality product/service
    7. Do what you say you will – Disclose conflicts of interest

    It’s refreshing when people do what they say they will. Consider some of the most successful companies who I believe follow this philosophy:

    1) Amazon – timely delivery and a reliable shopping experience

    2) Apple – quality, reliable products

    3) Virgin – reliable and quality service
