From San Juan, Puerto Rico back to the UK?

Facts: passport expiry.
Facts: 6 months VISA in the US allowance.
Facts: Court Date in the UK.

Boom and Burning Man. And some other really cool shit events.

Chances are I'll just send a lawyer to the hearing and arrive to Europe sometimes in June to get a new passport...

That way I'll maximise all the options while not compromising on anything.

Sounds like a deal?

Miami Ultra Music Festival - EDM at its finest - Mar 23, 24, 25, 2018

General admission tickets are already sold out but there is always a way:

Flights are cheap, $146 return:;f=SJU;t=MIA,FLL;d=2018-03-21;r=2018-03-27;sel=SJUFLL0NK240

I might have a place to crash, a little bit far away but within reasonable distance:

Back in a day I was saving money.

Then I started making decisions what if money was not an issue?

This time around - I'm somewhere in between - trying to balance energy expense, financial expense too. I would inevitably try to get "high as fuck" and that wouldn't be good to the business. Right now sitting on the fence, I'll make the decision as more information comes in...

(avoiding the temptation entirely could be a way)

My favourite hacks usually involve some Twilio magic

Ability to generate any number of phone numbers and receive text messages to confirm you being unique is badass amazing.

Now I know how to do this and I'll use this trick to my disposal.

Love the one-liner:

Stuff from 2012:

Now I'm in Puerto Rico and I may want to get the actual US number. Too bad I have free, unlimited roaming within my £20 per month package. Sometimes it's free, sometimes it's £6 per MB and clicking on a single link (after disabling every single app in mobile data settings) was something like £30 - disproportionally expensive...

It's OK to be not OK - one mistake should not reflect on the future...

Guess what happened:

Of course the moment I booked the flight it was insta regret. It was so easy, just go downstairs and bounce ideas...


Back in a day I've created a stub of an article: OK to be not OK - recognise weakness - stay in the flow!

Here is the link.

Totally agree with that:

Opportunities are like buses, there is always another one coming. Just some are bigger than others...

I had a chance to participate in a 6 weeks intensive developer course... It would require some sacrifices on my end, now as I think about it would open many doors. Hustle never ends...


I was a tilt mode.

Made a poor decision with going to a shop, should have stayed in a hotel.

Made a poor decision with chocolate, too worried about melting.

Details, details, tilt mode...


Evening yoga practice helped me restore the balance. Always good to have a reliable mode to press a reset button...

Friday, February 16, 2018 - media platform supported by Mark Cuban

One of the main selling points: Mark Cuban

He is a serial entrepreneur, visionary figure, iconic person, owner of Dallas Mavericks, he is on the TV show “Shark Tank”

That’s why the company uses his name uses his brand. Nothing wrong about it, I’d do exactly the same. If something passes his bullshit detector it’s pretty good indicator of potential success.

Entertainment industry
It is a massive market. Sorry not sorry if I don’t provide an actual number - it’s intuitive - how much money is in the space, how much attention is captivates. We live in attention economy now, and according to white paper they have very decent “time in the app” metrics.

Value of partnerships
As always I’m thinking about incentives. Every single platform wants to keep users on their website. Out of the box there are no incentives to share content to other places.

That’s where Marc Cuban and reputation comes in - to reach to high level decision makers and be legitimate.

Brand and design
I really like their name, brand, logo… It matters how you present the product. Social media game is also quite good.

Existing iOS app
I’ve installed it from the AppStore. It proves that has ability to deliver, not just white paper (vapour) ware.

FOMO factor
$36m sold out in the private sale. I understand there is no public sale. There is only bounty and community airdrop. I’m not sure if that is good - surely they’ve considered various options… It’s impossible to deny $36m from investors but what to do about community - offering airdrop seems like a finding balance.

Airdrops and referrals
Shameless about that, these are referral links, cost nothing to use them.

• Referral link:
• Telegram referral link:

Massive set of advisors
These guys are shaping the space, amazing credentials!

Handy link once again:

Looking for a simple way to exchange contacts in real life...

So Elon Musk is putting Tesla Roadster into Mars orbit.

Now we have 2018 and we still didn't solve a simple problem how to exchange contacts. Not so hypothetical situation from last night:
- we are both at a meetup
- we talk face to face for a few minutes (proximity 1m)
- we want to exchange contacts (proximity of the phones 0.1m)

Note that we both the "latest and greatest" iPhone X, with the following features:
- FaceID
- raise to wake
- listening to "OK Siri"
- automatically connecting to known WiFi networks
- constantly sending location to NSA data centres

I understand there is a privacy concern somewhere - it's OK to prompt me "are you sure to change your contact with..."

It's not Black Mirror - - it's basic usability.

I know there was an app to do that, now it is long gone:

My dream is not to have phone at all. Personal assistant handling social media obligations. Until then - pocket computing device - checking so many things online, extremely practical when travelling...

It's a little bit too much - can I simply spend some time on a beach?





Paradox of choice:

Of course I'd much prefer to be on a beach... That's why Miami is so tempting:

Then plan maximum - Chicago and Earth Nation HQ... (around 8 hours driving)

During stay in Florida:

Everything in time to return to London - something I cannot talk - and then some potential options: (15-18 Feb) / (23 Feb - 12 Mar) (22-25 Feb)

Time is the new money. Freedom is the new money. New paradigm... Alternatively, I can always retreat to Wales:


Other notable events:

Defcon: 9-12 August -

(making hacker camps great again)

More seriously cool stuff:

Only the highest vibration, not fluffing around. At the same time - JOMO - joy of missing out, cannot be everywhere.
