Writing

WHY LEARNING TO CODE IS THE WRONG GOAL
"What is the difference between learning to code and having a path to a successful career in technology? I believe the key differentiator is leadership. In many cases, kids already have some form of natural leadership ability."
PARTNERING WITH GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING DALLAS AUSTIN TO BRING SHARE TECHNOLOGY TO THE MUSIC BUSINESS
"Dallas Austin has produced more than 50 hit singles that debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 list. Dallas has not only made a strategic investment in FORMLESS, but we also have signed a partnership agreement with Dallas Austin Distribution (DAD) to offer the first-ever distribution deals in the form of smart contracts."
THE MEANING OF LIFE
"We've reached a point where machines can emulate humans at a very high level. Computers can now generate art, music and language. But is there meaning in the output of a machine?"
