Imagine the perfect life.

Imagine the perfect society.

Imagine Utopia.

All problems that we currently know are solved.

All boundaries that we know are gone.

The path to Utopia is clear — destruction enables perfection.

Every creation is an attack on the status quo.

We create drugs to remove pain. We grow food to satisfy hunger.

We build rockets to remove limitations in transportation. We invented the internet to reduce delays in communication.

We delete pictures to remove memories.

Our inventions delete problems and remove boundaries.

What holds us back from creating the perfect society?

Intellectual Traps

Insecurities are the…


If you build robots, you have all the freedom of design — you can create the most efficient form factor for the task the robot is designed for. Looking at the current robotics landscape shows that form factors are designed around the robot’s task. Take vacuum robots or warehouse robots that help to move goods as an example. Tesla is already building a driving robot that is designed to move people from a to b. It’s basically all their cars with FSD equipment, but why did they choose the human form factor for the next Tesla robot? …


A few days ago, Tesla finally announced their AI Day, which will be a keynote about the companies “ latest developments in supercomputing and neural network training.” As Elon tweeted earlier, the purpose of the event is recruiting. Talent in this space is difficult to hire, and Tesla needs to come up with something exciting.

Tesla has been working on self-driving technology for years, and Andrej Karpathy already has publicly demonstrated how their latest approach looks like. So the question is — what is Tesla going to unveil at this event? …


This article tries to explain why Bitcoin can become the successor to the current monetary system that we use. It is focused on the fundamental aspects of good monetary technology and compares the imperfections that each system has.

What is money?

Money was invented — yes, it is a technology- to participate in a highly specialized economy. Individuals and companies can focus on specific goods or services and get money in exchange for those. Long before we had our current monetary system, human beings experimented with many different technologies called money. Back in the day, people used goods like wheat…


Many companies are working on Self-Driving-Technology. And the use cases for the technology are diverse. Transporting humans or goods. Ride-hailing, delivery of any kind (food, freight etc.). Different sort of vehicles can be potentially equipped with Self-Driving-Technology. Cars, trucks or those tiny delivery robots that are made for food and small package delivery.

The race is on because self-driving capability is the only technology for almost a century that can significantly decrease the operating cost per mile. Research from ARK Invest suggests a reduction from 0,70 cents to 0,35 cents per driven mile. …


In product land, one of the fundamental questions to ask is: “Why should somebody use our product?” — frameworks like “Jobs-To-Be-Done” (#JTBD) try helping to answer the question.

In this article, I apply the #JTBD framework to my writing. Helping myself and others understand why people should read my articles and provide an example of using the JTBD framework.

What is a “Job”?

A person’s job is created by the person’s desire to change their life status and become a better version of themselves. It’s a process that can’t be accomplished without help. …


This guide describes the most relevant steps you should consider before building a no-code MVP, during the building process and after you finished your MVP experiment. It includes a brief description of each step, and I share some personal experience running MVP experiments.

Step 1 — What is the goal?

You don’t just build a no-code MVP to build a no-code MVP. It’s always a good idea to start with the “why”. Why are we creating an MVP in the first place? What is the purpose of this MVP?

A common reason to launch an MVP is to figure out…


I started my career in a startup, where I was hired as a post-graduate business school student. My job title was Product Manager (PM) because my skills were not easy to categorise. I was not a Developer, and I was not a designer. I had no idea what the job of a PM was, but I was about to find out. So I started doing a variety of different things.

I did research-related tasks, I crafted presentations, I talked to potential customers, I asked questions, I tried to understand problems, I communicated, I explained ideas, I wrote concepts, I connected…


How I use writing to identify my interests

I started my writing “career” in January 2020 to improve my writing skills. This is just my 10th article, and there is still so much room for improvement.

From time to time, my brain produces ideas for new articles. The average lifetime of those ideas is a few seconds. This is how long my brain needs to evaluate the concept.

During the evaluation process, my brain runs on autopilot. In most cases, I am not able to explain why I dismissed the idea. It takes effort to figure out the exact reason(s).

A few minutes before I wrote this article…


Thoughts on the Paradox of Choice — A Framework for Decision Making.

If you want to be or you are already financially independent, this article is for you.

For a common understanding, let’s start with the definition.

Financial independence is the status of having enough income to pay one’s living expenses for the rest of one’s life without having to be employed or dependent on others. Source: Wikipedia

The following thoughts are based on a few assumptions. Those assumptions help to navigate to a particular aspect of being post-economic.

Assumptions

You somehow figured it out. You are financially independent — congratulations, you accomplished your goal.

For the sake of argument, I would like…
