  • It must suck to be Mark Zuckerberg

    Apple Vision Pro is not the first VR/AR headset in the market. In fact, Meta launched its first pair of VR headset in 2016. That’s 7 years, 2,555 days, 61,000 hours ago. And yet, Apple Vision Pro, in 0.005 years, 2 days, and 48 hours, has created more attention than everything Meta has created. It…

  • World Shifted

    Like many of you, I am obsessively consuming all information about Apple Vision Pro. Just now, after watching a video by Casey Neistat, I had a realization. Endless review videos and articles feature people unboxing, setting up, and using the Apple Vision Pro. These reviews discuss the “what” and the “how” of the device. In…

  • My workout routine … for reading

    Reading non-fiction books is utilitarian for me. They are not my favorite, but I read them to learn useful skills, like building team culture or understanding my biases. Before, I read only on my Kindle, highlighting a lot. After finishing a book, I exported the highlights to organize in my database. But this method was…

  • 2023 in Random Moments

    A Year of Taylor Swift, Divorces, Job Search, Losing To Screens, and Lifting Lighter Weights. In 2023, I stumbled upon a discovery that threw my fitness routine into chaos.

    Truck 2.0

    Setting aside your feelings about Musk and the looks of the Cybertruck, this truck seems to be truly revolutionary. The Cybertruck is the real Truck 2.0. “The Ford F-150 Lightning is a genuinely great vehicle, but it’s nothing more than an electric take on a 70-year-old design. The R1T is one step ahead. What Rivian…

  • The Colors of Modernity: Delft, Amsterdam, Nice

    The Colors of Modernity: Delft, Amsterdam, Nice

    We just finished our trip to the Netherlands, where we stayed in Amsterdam and Delft. The country was a great blend of history, modernity, civility, and intuitiveness. The cities, often wreathed in damped cannabis smoke, were aged, clean, and well-organized. Most places, including the open air weekend markets, accepted Apple Pay. The transportation system, with…

  • Are NFTs Done?

    “Whatever, I hear?” I get it. Everyone has moved on. We are all staring at the shiny new thing- AI, ChatGPT, GPT-4 … But blockchain is not dead. It’s in the trenches now. What happens when things are in the trenches? 2000- the dot com bubble bursted. I was there. The hype disappeared instantly. Naked…

  • Why Tough Love Bosses Win?

    Why Tough Love Bosses Win?

    There is this Cantonese saying which says, “反轉豬肚就是💩“, (the underbelly of a pig is poop …) I find this to be a very common reaction from people towards managers giving candid feedback, with one interesting exception. Have you ever had a “tough love” kind of boss? Do you remember how they made you feel? One…
