In one of my last articles titled corporate restructuring, it was stated that corporate restructuring will matter a lot after the pandemic period and this article about SPAC tried to highlight the opportunity for an investor to go after retail stores and brands that are facing trouble due to the pandemic situation for acquiring them using the investment strategy of her or his choice. This investment strategy could be a Spac but the investor could also use a Leverage Buy-Out (LBO) strategy.

Today, I was willing to know by my own means if more businesses were in trouble during these…

The Greyio Heart Experiment is restarted

The last article I have published sounded like a goodbye, Today I thought that I am wrong stopping to write about my thoughts, ideas and mainly about you creative tech people. I have already laid how writing was helping me structure my way of thinking and ideating and how it was fuelling my reading experience because reading and writing are two components that support themselves each to the other like this couple of the Newtonian mechanics that make objects turn around

To every one of you who has been the subject of an article of the Greyio Heart experiment and all those who have engaged themselves with the articles. Let me tell you that you all are great human beings, people like you are the raison d’etre of this web of computers that we name the internet. With algorithms only the web is boring but if it embeds interactions with people who care, it clearly becomes a lever and a connection engine. That’s the idea behind idea emb..., this venture which is the mother of BooK Dojo and Godda Game.

Of course, you can go after a degree from Harvard, Standford, MIT, or whatever university stands for what you stand for but if you cannot, please don't give up because people like Maya Bello are here for helping you, girl, learn coding and Mbenda has already told you that with courses like those of Maya Bello or other bootcamps you can land a job in tech by being a frontend or back developer or a DevOps like Jenifer Opal.

A degree from a university is worth the journey because of the status that it provides you. like a key currency…

Decentralization is a key concept that we should care about mainly when it’s about power. We are decentralizing power when we give girls and women more space to express themselves. From country management, politics to information systems, decentralization gives us opportunities to do more with less but decentralization more if it’s about systems requires collaboration and interoperability and these two pieces cannot go without connectivity. Connections are simply what actually fuel our everyday life and I hope this pandemic situation that we are trying to leave behind reminded us of the importance of being connected as human beings.

Mbenda Ndour, software engineer, getting girls into tech

Getting girls into tech is something that Mbenda Ndour is most passionate about and like her other person like you are also. It’s important for girls to get into STEM, we all agree that getting more girls into tech is important for the world and more for the tech industry because we will get more opportunities if we do. Opportunities born from connecting people and ideas and the tech-mediated era into which we are living in connecting is more important than networking.

By writing this article all I am trying to do is to be generous by writing about other…

Following or unfollowing a journalist on Twitter means something, I have not waited for Natasha who reminded me of this while listening to Equitypod yesterday to act on it because way before I was a fan of these two great podcasts, Pivot and Sway where Kara switcher and her peer Scott Galloway provided me a lot of insights that allowed me to know more about what matters into the tech journalistic field.

For knowing more about this tech journalistic field, I did a bit of search that led me to rediscover the work of this great French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu…

for learning and understanding genres and for these games that Godda Game is designing and building it was important to rediscover all those movies like copycat. Rewatching it two days ago reminded me why I loved this movie? Not the characters, neither the director nor the beauty of the film … but this computer that was playing like an actor. I remembered that during this time (1995) and years before computers were stars in Hollywood movies. Now who cares if a Macintosh or an IBM appears in Hollywood movies.

I knew of celebrities but not still cerebrities, in case you don't know who cerebrities are, they are those who remind us of things that matter for us and they often do it by doing things that matter. From all genres, categories, industries, sectors, and geographies they are leading us with what they achieve.

These cerebrities of course are for sure celebrities and really deserve that the Greyio heart expriment shed light on who they are, what they have achieved and now set to achieve. It’s not about biographies but about giving. …

Writing this book, which I announced in this article into which I was writing the fact that it was ignited by this article about Mbenda I have written, led me to write this article about shareability. Because after writing into this book this concern about these 1.7 billion people who don't have access to financial services, I provided the example of e-commerce and payment systems which I illustrated with a purchase of a book on amazon and a solution which is sharecart and how this solution could be re-engineered to target this audience of 1.7 billions of unbanked persons.
