Did you know?

Did you know that photons of light have no color, sound waves have no sound, olfactory molecules have no odors, and food molecules have no taste?

Just do it…no not Nike…

The issue is not that you are not capable of doing it…the issue is that I know you are capable but you don’t. A phrase (or a close derivative) that I have found myself repeating often – to karate’s who I taught, to employees, even to family. The starting point for most people is “I …

Ok, a lot of you messaged me yesterday. The general consensus was that blockchain and crypto are no more a mystery to them anymore.
