Vlogging from equipment to actually doing it

Image
  When my wife asked: do you know to vlog? I was prompt in replying "I know what it is. Yes." Now that I have been for a few weeks in the family task force of documenting our next adventure , I understand that the question was a setup and I was way too naïve with my reply. This post is the first of a few that share what I have learned so far in the making of The bLife Movement marketing job, I have been assigned by the highest court of the land, in my home. Yup. I am the only man in the house and I don't have a ruling seat. So that would be my girls. After some investigation, I pointed out that I have a day job and don't have much time to actually do the things that I have foreseen to be necessary. However, if the council allowed, I would build the strategy and plan to make it happen. After all, that's definitely one of the things that are more natural to me in my daily job. I studied up and no-no, I didn't just YouTube the shize out of it, I read a bunch of

Bioprivacy

I have been fixated for several years now on the importance of collecting biometrical data. I believe that is the key to find correlations of why we do what we do and how to do it better, healthier: eat, walk, talk and act with certain patterns is directly linked to what we eat and in which sequence those things we inject in or apply to our body. All together deliver biochemical reactions that our brain adapts and respond accordingly to our DNA footprint. I walk the talk  all that with extreme rigor in my professional and particularly in my personal life. About 5 years ago I started a massive data collection project for the last invention of my career, FLINT , leveraging data generated by me and my family. I have already touched the subject before on this blog so I will skip the details of FLINT. While reading the news this morning, I came across this article about Rick, a guy that I admire for his kindness and business acumen. He leads the hardware team at Google and prior he was a

Time is everything

I would have started this post with: If I only had enough time, to write this post. You would understand! When it comes to time, here is my shortlist of considerations:  Time is worth more than money The best idea can fail if delivered at the wrong time The best jokes fail with the wrong timing I take time and timing very seriously. It is possible I am a time nerd. But I don't waste time validating that assumption though 😄 When it comes to priorities in relation to time, here is my ladder of values Time Health Freedom Money Not the other way around. I remember watching a documentary where t he Dalai Lama when asked about his views of time, he said : A man sacrifices his health in order to make money then he sacrificed his money to recuperate his health you have a choice with those precious hours and minutes you can either live out a life determined by everybody else and their expectations or you can make a choice to live with the intent to be deliberate and to be specific and con

It's all about privacy. Until you understand how it works.

Friends are pinging me over Whatsapp to ask if it is safe to stay on it. I have already expressed my opinions on the matter on this blog when it comes to privacy and security. Let me summarize that for you and repeat after me: You can't have optimal privacy with companies that offer you free services. e.g., the big elephant in the room Facebook and a zillion of other services that do very well for their shareholders You don't have THE best privacy now with paid services e.g., telecoms, credit card companies, banks Your understanding of what privacy is in this hyper-digital era might be wrong. To begin with, you share a piece of pregnancy news with your friend, s/he doesn't post it anywhere (that you know), but she hands the phone over to your worst enemy on the galaxy, s/he going to tell all about to their friends. Privacy? Yep...that's what I thought. Don't leave WhatsApp or whatever pleases you to use today. What Facebook, the company that bought for gazillions W

I have several large projects that are broken into multiple posts. To simplify the findings of those, you can use the labels on the left or search for "index" to find all of them in the correct order of publishing. The bLife Project™ Is my family adventure of laying the foundation of the second cycle of getting old (post 50s) and building a community of love, friendship, and family. This index will be updated as new articles are posted. Chapter I Chapter II

The bLife Movement Story - CHAPTER I

Image
This is the first chapter of a series wherein a narrative and practical way I will be sharing what one day led me to take a significant turn in the way I approached life, work ethic, and the embracing principle that getting old doesn't have to sux. Since I booted this blog years ago I always treated it as an open diary; without caring too much about the form or the order of sharing. My objective as always is to inspire others and lead by example. The quintessential power of humans is the ability to pass on what has been learned from others. Books (knowledge) is what sped up progress for the whole human race. Without that we are not very sapiens, we're just pets in a matrix.  And with that... let me start telling you the story from the beginning of time and what I am in the process of making with my life partner Victoria and some close friends. In my mid-20s I was hired by an authentic entrepreneur Romeo Quartiero , from Milan. His company was a forge of young and smart minds bu
