This nerd of Permission technology

This person is one of the looser of the early internet entrepreneurs if it is the amount of money that defines who wins because he closed his eyes in front of 40 billion worth of stock options. This one had the idea of AdWords before google, yahoo before yahoo, twitch before twitch. This book packager played with ideas and projects with empathy for those he was seeking to serve. This teacher invented the educational Game genre. This entrepreneur invented permission marketing and first saw the power of email marketing. This geek, this nerd, this engineer, this marketer is on top of all of that a creative successful artist who simply keeps shipping new things on behalf of those like you and me who will use them to create the next things. Money is simply the most resonated story that we human beings have adopted and believed making it drive our lives while it is worth just the story we tell ourselves.

Who is this Nerd?

Trust and permission are the most important currency of today’s world driven by technology that enables connections. yesterday I got connected with “Nerd for Tech” an idea initiated by someone so far from me that it would be impossible for us to connect without the power of the internet which is a connections engine. That’s one of the effects of technology, the disruption of distance that eases the growth of Tribes of Geeks and tribes of Nerds.

​Papa makhtar Diop is before anything a geek or a nerd or both if you want. Geek and nerd are now overused but they used to name a knowledge driven person.
