  • Beautiful #Tokyo2020

    I love photos from the Olympics that exhibit the beauty of the host cities. Look at this beautiful Equestrian park in Tokyo! It is unmistakably Japanese. How about this picture of cyclists zooming through the legs of the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam?! And then, BMX bikes meandering through patches of pink flowers? (≧▽≦)

  • Skateboarding @ #Tokyo2020

    Skateboarding @ #Tokyo2020

    I love the story of Nike SB- skateboarding, and today, almost poetically, the world got to see the products Nike created for Olympic skateboarding athletes, an effort 24 years in the making.  When Nike first produced its own skate shoes in 1997, the market was strongly in favour of brands such as DC and Vans.…

The pile-on of all the negatives will tint the overall narrative of Tokyo 2020. The games will be coloured by COVID, low viewership,…

  • I Am Now A Gig Worker

    I was hired as a Bravely Pro last week. Bravely is an online coaching company. It hires contract coaches (Bravely Pro- my latest professional moniker) to provide on-demand coaching to employees of Bravely’s corporate clients. So yes, I am now in the gig economy. Instead of driving people around in cars or delivery food on…

On one hand, the naive part of me wants China to be good. This is not because I am Chinese, it is because we all are stuck on…
