An idea worth spreading

Rationality informing everyday decisions and self-analysis in a way that allows people to courageously understand themselves, their weaknesses and motivations can lead to happier, better informed citizens that will do good on their own.

I'm passionate about

Computers, future technology, evolution, cognitive science, history, Internet law and the world at large

Talk to me about

How science and technology are going to change the world, and how laws should be made to allow that to happen in a beneficial way, instead of trying to stop change.

People don't know I'm good at

I am very good at forgetting things. It's like a superpower in the sense that I can do such amazing feats of forgetfulness people at first can't believe it.

Rethink the human-centered airline experience. *A TEDActive Travel Project*
I've been annoyed by announcements a few times. But actually not with the announcements per se, but with the fact that I couldn't hear them, understand them, or they were too loud in my earphones. Another problem: accents. As a foreigner in the US I had problem figuring out instructions some times even when they were audible. The English of international companies is sometimes very funy, but shouldn't be.
