"The Singularity Is Near" All kinds of technologies are growing more and more rapidly. I think the only way to catch up is continued learning and think for ourselves. So I read at least one related book a month since 3 years ago.

My Favorite Quotes

Quotes 02 00@2x

Our task today is to find singular ways to create the new things that will make the future not just different, but better -- to go from 0 to 1. The essential first step is to think for yourself. Only be seeing our world anew, as fresh and strange as it was to the ancients who saw it first, can we both re-create it and preserve it for the future.

Zero to One, Peter Thiel
