Prof G x Web3

I don’t necessarily agree with all the points made here, but some things are worth pointing out… ‘Every member of Forbes’s 2021 cryptobillionaires list is a man. A third of them attended Stanford or Harvard. Out of the 12 listed, only one isn’t white. The web3 narrative feels like a TEDx talk given to a survivalist group.’ [≠]
One for my #SportsTwitter friends: @Adidas had a nice little sale on the ‘85 retro @RiverPlate jersey! A nice throwback to my #TibzPES career mode game…

First time headed to the park, third run this week, and longer run have taken so far since I started logging my runs 💪🏼 I still don’t enjoy running, but with the latest variant it’s the best way for me to exercise considering the weather [≠]
A little late but this marks the final beer in my advent calendar — couldn’t hope for anything else than a stout or a porter! 🍺
Keeping up with my bi-weekly jogging/getting back in shape. Fog/humidity/5 degrees Celsius 🥶
My wife made us some unbelievable Vietnamese beef & carrots stew this evening! 🤤

Delivery day!

Just upgraded my running/working out gear to some T-shirts and jogging/track pants from Castore — shit was expensive but wow it feels so good! Testing something. Had to get the @IlkayGuendogan away kit from last season: our best goal scorer
After spending the morning on a train to my parents’ home, we made it just in time to unpack, enjoy an espresso, and get back to work for the final work week of the year!

My Eternals Review

This is was long and had occasional pacing issues but I’m SO GLAD I finally got to see it and on the big screen! As someone who loves storytelling and world-building and who grew up as a HUGE mythology geek, I really liked this! Looking forward to seeing some of these characters again!!! boxd.it

Always love to read @DavidAldridgeDC writing about my @WashWizards
I love that Twitter is now getting a partial re-birth linked to the Crypto community and Jack’s buy-in. I just wish they would focus on the basics a bit more first: moderation, user safety, etc.

Happy 10th Birthday to ‘The Verge’

Happy first decade to The Verge, arguably one of the most important tech media publication of the past decade! I remember how innovative they were from the very start! ”The Verge predates Alexa and the entire concept of Netflix original programming. We are older than Google Photos, Timehop, and Peloton; we launched with a glossy story on the first Nest thermostat. The very first Oculus VR prototype was shown to us in a Las Vegas parking lot.
Respectfully, Facebook — now Meta— and Zuck can all fuck off, now!
Random shots and recent life updates, including predominantly some delicious food!

Dune (2021): Dennis Villeneuve x Game of Thrones x an epic Space Opera. I have a feeling this may not be as accessible as the marketing makes it seem, but I hope many people flock to theaters to watch it!
Fantastic weekend: - basketball session Saturday morning. - biking from Montmartre to Chinatown and back, for a popup event - went to a Racing 92 rugby game last night - skateboarding session this morning - longboarding across different landmarks this afternoon! - caught up with ⚽️ and 🏈
For our last weekend together until she travels to see her family, we ended up going to Versailles: visiting the Royal Palace by day and enjoying the Lights & Fountains show by night!
Fantastic date night and a movie at the theater… The Wong Kar-wai sanctioned 4K restauration looks incredible on the big screen of a theater! Highly recommend this experience over anything “at home”

Korean Movie night

One of the many perks living in Paris: I’ve got an all-you-can-eat pass to go to the cinema! This evening I was planning an outing to an art house theater which was planning to show a 35mm screening of Sympathy for Lady Vengeance however their 35mm projector is down. So as a backup they’re showing The Host — which was also in my list…
I can’t express how happy it makes me to see #ShangChi, a global blockbuster with a predominately Asian cast and crew, with a huge marketing campaign taking over in my city!
My yearly @sleeperhq fantasy football draft for this year! Excited for the new season!
Went dogsitting in the city with @chrstnerode’s wonderful Yoshi! We had a fantastic time with our new friend 🤩
This article about the post-pandemic skating boom and culture warms my heart so much!
Call me crazy but I’m on track to break a new personal record — so glad I picked up that unlimited Cinema card…

Recent movies watched at the cinema

Baseball Girl Korean Film Festival in Paris. Beyond the baseball aspects (which I love) this movie was more about societal and political issues. Highly recommend! Annette La La Land meets Real Life meets Greek Tragedy A Quiet Place Did not see the story going in this direction, and a good time at the movie! AQP 1&2 are such an experience to be enjoyed in theaters!
Street food evening at Belleville tonight #LeFoodMarket #KimchiHotdog
Upgraded my work laptop from a 2018 MBP to one of the new Macbook Air on M1. It’s like going to your first IMAX cinema screening!
Discovered this Brazilian-Japanese bar & restaurant in the middle of the city! Fantastic find! Also, fun fact: São Paulo has the biggest number of Japanese people outside of Japan, which I had no idea about
I am here for this fantastic French cultural reference on @AmyLawrence71’s article on the French National team

Absolutely loved reading @LaurenzCollins’ feature piece about @OmarSy (@Netflix’s #Lupin) in @NewYorker. It’s about the actor, the show, but also so much more about French society and modern history today!
À propos of nothing: I can confirm that tourists have started traveling back to Paris. In the second half of the summer last year, it was mostly Europeans (Italians and Spaniards, predominantly.) This time around, the number of overseas US visitors is skyrocketing by the day!
The immediate follow-up for me now is to think about Micro.blog vs DayOne vs Tumblr (also an Automattic acquisition) For the use that I personally have, all of these have inter-connections…
Wow, Day One (my journal app since 2010) acquired by Automattic is not something I thought I’d see. Could be very exciting and interesting though…

My CotCot is back!

My local fried chicken place has finally reopened after months of shutting down during the winter and pandemic! I’m super excited as they’re part of the way that I experience the neighborhood and I’m mildly addicted to fried chicken! This makes for a lovely weekend outing and conclusion to the big reopening week here in France!

#AAPI Heritage Month

Wonderful takeover on Apple Music to celebrate #AAPI (Asian American & Pacific Islanders) heritage month! If you can, watch the @MrEddieHuang interview and the short film about being Unapologetically Asian please do that too!
I stopped caring what people thought about me at 18 years old, and I can’t stress enough how great it’s been for my own mental health, sense of success, and dealing with success or failure!
Monday Wisdom: Be kind to others but don’t forget to be even kinder to yourself!

A good leader knows how/when to delegate…

Perhaps it might seem strange to some people to praise the player who decided not to take the decisive free kick. What those people might not understand is that De Bruyne, by choosing to step away, was absolutely taking responsibility. In the process, he was also demonstrating why he had the captain’s armband on his sleeve. Deferring to Mahrez highlighted De Bruyne’s other special quality – he is a selfless superstar
A few weeks ago, my wife and I decided to treat ourselves and wanted to make sure we’d remember this difficult 2020-2021 in a positive light. We had our photos taken by @FlaneriePhoto on an early morning in the City. Love how it turned out!
Don’t be fooled – the Super League clubs gambled everything and they blew it
Fantastic breakdown of the awful and disastrous European Super League on @TheAthletic today! European Super League explained: the contracts, plots and threats that shook football to its core
“I always felt like one of the best ways to get to know people was to watch them play basketball, so basketball has always been this thing within which I’ve studied humanity.” | After the scars of ‘Fresh Off the Boat,’ Eddie Huang took control on ‘Boogie’
“I’m going to do what white people have done to us for so long, which is to take our stuff, take our people out of it, and put themselves in.” —via Instapaper
This resonates heavily! “Stop looking for a place you fit in. The world I’ve created for myself, the friends that I have, that’s my world. There’s not another country or place to go to. I accept being different, and I enjoy it.” @MrEddieHuang Has Come Down from the Mountain
People who have known me for over 5 years know of my love of indie publications! Stoked to have supported @CourierMedia for years and even more so since @DanielGiaco joined!
Cocktail Hour: - 1 oz Agave - 0.5 oz St Germain - fill with litchi juice
Thank you @laurenzcollins — I’ve been so flabbergasted by this monstrosity! If we could at least not call these ‘tacos’, everything would be better in the world 😅🌯
My first concert was on April 14th, 2004. (First concert away from going with my parents, etc.) Ever since then, something interesting has ALWAYS happened on April 14th. Let’s see if it all goes according to plan tomorrow :)
The other thing that drives me 🍌/🥜 is organizing social group gatherings (which are illegal for the time being BTW). Sometimes it’s really tiring living in a country where the default culture is to do as you please, regardless of official government guidelines… 🤬😤
Having a hard time empathising with French people going on holidays to Spain rn. Besides the legally-gray area (we’re currently in lockdown), the audacity of traveling abroad while the pandemic rages on feels incredibly selfish. We’re barely supposed to leave our 10km radius.
We’re on another snow alert until tomorrow afternoon but here I am squeezing in a quick run… 🤷🏻‍♂️ 🥶

About life outside of work...

Little known thing about me: I take my fun very seriously! The past year, living through this global pandemic, has definitely had its ups and downs. In these difficult times, I’m incredibly grateful to have found my place as part of a few wonderful online communities. I’m proud to have recreated this sense of “life outside of work”, making new friends along the way! To illustrate this point, I now have a regular spot on a weekly podcast, discussing all things Manchester City Football Club.
Monday Wisdom: “It’s a marathon, not a sprint” — apply it where needed (in life, at work, in creativity, or anywhere you see fit) and see you at the finish line!

Thinking of COVID and Parisians’ attitude of disregard of guidelines when it comes to sacrifices of their oh-so-important social life, I can only think of a quote from my wife, recently: > “Better be lonely than dead”
None of this is surprising, but holy shit he’s insane. Out-of-his-mind carelessness!

Fary x Colors

Ok. So let’s say I’m changing my first name… Would it make you look past the fact that I’m not as fair-skinned as other names? Like, if I get a “whiter” French name… What’s the idea, that I’ll whiten over time ? Oh sure, you “don’t even see color”. You have “a friend of a friend that’s even blacker than an Arab”, sorry. If I was Asian and I changed my name, would that be easier for you to pronounce than “rice-paddy” ?

No Room for Excuses: @Netflix released its documentary 13th, in its entirety on Youtube, for free! Please watch it as soon as you can!

NYT: "Macron Beat Back the Coronavirus. France Is Not Impressed."

“France has fared better than many in the pandemic, especially when compared with the United States, Italy, Spain and especially Britain. Just don’t tell that to the French, who resent Mr. Macron for it more than ever.” This is what I refer to when I say that my *French people tend to be unreasonable*… Nothing is ever good enough, regardless of results! 🤷🏻‍♂️ ≠
“This is the moment Colin Kaepernick helped create”

WTF! They did follow his advice: > “People have put bleach their food. Others have gargled or inhaled it. And some have washed their bodies with household cleaning and disinfectant products.”

A few thoughts and resources about Racial Injustice & Empathy

This week has been draining. It’s no longer possible to stay on the sidelines and watch the situation silently. What’s happening now in the US is a fight that also happens here in France, and in many other places across Europe and around the World. As a light continues to shine on societal inequalities in the US and the world, these are resources I have discovered that are helping to educate me on anti-racism and systemic racism.
My friend @AsantePhenix just released a brand new single today! Please go check it out!

Weekend Plans: finding Aperol and/or Martini #CocktailGang
I miss sports. Watching and playing. ⚽️🏀🏈⚾️🏉🛹⛹🏻‍♂️💪🏼
Yesterday was a tough day, stressful and all. But today is already more than making up for it, both personally and professionally 👌🏼
One of us is a vegetarian, but the other one hasn’t told it to them

I feel incredibly grateful to our leadership and HR/Admin team for ensuring that we all feel cared for. The people-first approach taken by our leaders is refreshing and continues to comfort me in the decision I made a year ago to join @Spendesk!
Well that’s the weekend (or the rest of the confinement period) sorted then
We finally got the new @SlackHQ redesign and I’m happy to report that these smaller iterations are making life a lot more manageable!
It was three years ago that I left for my big year-long trip around the world! 🗺🤯

We’ve onboarded as many employees during Q1 2020 (this past quarter) than there were employees a year ago during Q1 2019. Insane.
When I was planning it, I thought this previous meeting was going to be a shitshow, but it turned out great, thankfully. 💪🏼🙌🏼 So I suppose impostor syndrome never really left, it was just sitting quietly in the corner, waiting for an opportunity to pop by and say hi! 🤷🏻‍♂️
My favorite @TheSnapCam x @Zoom_US is the glitter-one — making internal meetings a little more fun!
Thinking of which Sagas I could rewatch over the next few days/weeks. Of the top of my head: - The Lord of the Rings (possibly with The Hobbit) - Resident Evil - Fast & Furious - James Bond (only a select few) Am I missing something? Any recommendations?

New Productivity Tip: I went from setting Slack on Do-Not-Disturb to quitting the app for a few hours at a time. Working great so far — just need to reopen it on occasions, but there’s rarely any real emergency. And if there was, someone would get in touch.

It feels like I’ve achieved more in a half-day working remotely, than I normally would on a full day at the office 🤷🏻‍♂️ 😆
Late last week, someone took our coffee machines. We assumed that it was a mover, taking it to the new office. Turns out they got the wrong office. So today, when the Coffee Company employee came with two machines, the entire office clapped and applauded him. Hilarious morning!

A big reason as to why I’m so happy to have started working at Spendesk this year is due to the amazingly welcoming team of humans I get to work with everyday. To finish the busy year on a good note, the entire Customer Success team is playing a little game of Secret Guardian Angels: each of us is assigned a colleague, and, until the end of the year, the goal is to try to make their days a little happier with small attentions.

For the first blogpost of 2019, allow me to start off by wishing you a Happy New Year 2019! It’s been a couple of weeks since my last email, and the end of the year for Shana and me has been simply focused on our Winter break and on planning to move out of Dublin. Over the first week, we left Dublin and traveled back down to the South of France to stay with my family.

“I believe it’s wrong to separate work and morality. [...] It means you should check whether the ethics and values of your employer align with your own. Especially in technology, where the impact of your work is felt by thousands or millions or even billions of people, it’s worth asking yourself more often: is the world I spend eight hours every day creating truly the world I want to live in myself?

“Om’s Long Goodbye to Facebook”

Long-time and highly respected writer-turned-VC Om Malik is leaving Facebook. “I don’t need [Facebook] and don’t miss it. (...) I left because it was making me someone I am not — someone who lives life through the eyes of others. There is a hard edge in Facebook life. People are always fronting — putting their best life forward. Just like startup life these days.” I’ve been thinking about this for years, but while I wish I could go through with it, being an expat and living in an international relationship where both my partner’s family & friends, as well as my own, are thousands of miles away, it is near impossible to keep in touch with the Big Blue.

The series leaves you with the sense that this is just the beginning. It’s a young roster, and the high-profile losses to United and Liverpool last season somehow made a record-breaking season feel like a scratch on the surface of their potential. ⚽️

From cries about “ethics in journalism” to “fake news,” journalists have been increasingly targeted by people acting in bad faith who do not care about the work they do, the challenges they face, or the actual context of their statements. Online trolls and harassers want us, the Times, and other newsrooms to waste our time by debating their malicious agenda. They take tweets and other statements out of context because they want to disrupt us and harm individual reporters.

Vlog 048: Relaxing in Bali

This Vlog has been overdue for about 10 months — SORRY! However, this is a good review of my trip to Bali last August. Bali is a place I had always heard of but never visited. I've had some crazy experiences that I never thought would happen, like going to see a local football game of the Bali United Football Club or being hosted by my driver's family. All in all a very unique and utterly beautiful place!
Only 10 months late on this one, but I should have my #Vlog from last August in #Bali available soon:

[Book Review] “Exit West” by Mohsin Hamid

(This book was recommended by a heavy-reading couple of friends — thanks a ton Daniel & Kim!) Looking back in the past few years, the Syrian Crisis and related forced migrations might have been one of the biggest and most important stories of the decade. This is the background for Mohsin Hamid’s book “Exit West”. Despite the several surrealistic elements, it is a book that looks at the present and tries to paint a difficult if optimistic snapshot of what the world is, and what it may turn out to be.

As a fan of the TV Show, going through The Expanse #1 was a great discovery! I read on Kindle in combination w/ Audible, and it was a great way to make some progress faster! Going to switch it up by reading something different before moving on to the second book in this series!

Still unsure how I feel about the Venom movie. On the one hand: Tom Hardy, Riz Ahmed, and I like the direction they seem to take. Almost like a Spawn/Punisher type of story. On the other, the SFX look odd. And getting a trailer this late is never a good sign…

Project Varanida on Forbes

Last week, I was in London for a client project — we were exhibiting at Blockchain Expo. During the expo, we had the chance to explain our product to Forbes contributor Jason Bloomberg. He just published an article about a crop of startups disrupting industries using blockchain technology —including Varanida, my recent client. Today’s digital advertising world centers on complex bidding processes... (...) The current system, however, faces several challenges. Ad fraud in its various forms plagues the industry.

Shoreditch Streetart

And now for something a little different: some of the impressive and amazing streetart I found walking around Shoreditch this weekend…   [gallery ids=“3789,3791,3787,3783,3784,3785,3786,3788,3790,3718,3793,3794,3795,3796,3797,3798,3799,3792” type=“rectangular”]

A Week in London

It started like any other week, in our Dublin apartment. I coordinated with my clients, checked on the advancement of our different projects, and worked my way through a couple of things on Monday. On Tuesday, early in the morning, Shana left to go on a business trip to the US. And just a couple of hours later, it was my turn to pack my bags and leave for the airport: after 14 months, I was going back to London for a little bit.
Another amazing day in London, walking around Shoreditch/Hackney, and enjoying a delicious brunch with @DanielGiaco

Have you heard about GAFAs?

In France, business-related publishers refer to Google-Apple-Facebook-Amazon as a single group. And because the french love acronyms, they called it 'GAFA's. Beyond the sheer horror of the acronym, I don't think it's fair to associate these companies together. Apple makes money off products Facebook makes money off ads (i.e. off the user) Amazon harvests a lot of data but offers products/services (B2C/B2B) Google (similarly to both FB and Amazon) has B2B/B2C components in addition to the ads.

How is it already April?!

It’s April. Looking back on the beginning of the year, I’ve been going non stop, moving from the French Riviera over to Dublin, finding ourselves a flat, working on two new fast-paced projects, and planning the rest of the year. Tonight’s therapy comes from well… the Therapy EP by the always soothing Vancouver Sleep Clinic!

Liam launched a Newsletter!

My friend @LiamBoogar recently launched a newsletter where he tackles Branding, France, Technology, and a lot more — all through his personal and opinionated point of view. The latest issue is really solid, and talks about Labor Laws in France and the labour market in the US. Here’s a solid gem that struck me: ”Even in the Silicon Valley, where great benefits, remote work & “unlimited vacation” are advertised on every /careers page, the reality is that “unlimited vacation” doesn’t work in a culture where taking any time off is seen as lazy.

This take by @MGSiegler is sad because it rings true. Going to the cinema has been one of my all time favorite experiences. I always feel like a kid when I enter the room and sit up in the big red seats, awaiting the new trailers. I, however, seem to be part of a shrinking majority. “There are a handful of theaters, most of them indie, which offer great — in some cases, truly great — movie-going experiences.

A Day out around the Killiney Bay

After our trip to Belfast during St Patrick’s day, we were eager to get out of Dublin again and explore the surrounding areas a bit more. After an evening spent on Pinterest searching for some inspiration, we decided to take a train down to Killiney, apparently a location with a beautiful viewpoint on the sea. We started off enjoying a lovely breakfast at home — we have the same type of food throughout the work week, so weekends allow us to either go to a lovely café in the neighborhood, or fix ourselves with a little homemade goodness as the suns comes out.

A Day Trip Belfast (March 2018)

Bank Holiday Monday, over St Patrick’s Day Weekend. We left the apartment at an early 6.45am to walk towards Dublin’s Connolly station. There, we met with Shana’s coworker M and her boyfriend M. We hopped on the train and discovered that our names were appearing on a little display above our seats. Those little details can make us nerds so happy! Over the next two hours, the duration of our trip, we spent our time talking and learning more about M&M — they are both from Sweden and arrived in Dublin about two and a half months before us.

EFF: "The CLOUD Act, a far-reaching, privacy-upending piece of legislation"

Sound the alarms: “This final, tacked-on piece of legislation will erode privacy protections around the globe.” This notice, courtesy of the Electronic Frontier Foundation This bill is the CLOUD Act. It was never reviewed or marked up by any committee in either the House or the Senate. It never received a hearing. It was robbed of a stand-alone floor vote because Congressional leadership decided, behind closed doors, to attach this un-vetted, unrelated bill to the $1.

[Movie Review] Phantom Thread

If we’re to rate this movie in itself, based on the technique, the depth of its characters, and the story, we’re talking about a 4.5/5. Personally, I’d rate it a 4, just because the story is less compelling to me. In any case, this is a really intense role for Daniel Day-Lewis who inhabits the character of Reynald Woodcock perfectly. The lead female character of Alma is also played incredibly well.

2018: “The Year of Twitter”

From @MGSiegler: “I think Twitter is going to have a good year in 2018, while Facebook has a bad one.” It’s not that crazy to think about. And to some extent, this is already happening. But to capitalise on this, Twitter will first have to tackle its harassment, hate-speech, and nazi problems. From there, they should be able to focus on their strengths: becoming the “public forum” it was meant to be and honing in on being the bets platform for breaking news and sports/global events.

Don’t judge me but a few months ago I got back to #Evernote and it’s been smooth sailing and higher productivity ever since…

Love the fact that Apple has shared an article within the “Today View” aka the App Store’s curated panel to talk about Markdown. Here’s hoping markdown gets a little spotlight and becomes more mainstream!

"Begpacking"

Needless to say, this is absolutely despicable: _”Working while traveling is a tactic many use to keep their wanderings going longer, hence the trend of digital nomads. But intentionally choosing to forgo money—rather than just running out of it while on the road—are two different things. And while some who crowdfund (or beg) their own travel may claim to have charitable leanings, the common thread among these free-loading wanderers is that they have a choice in the matter.

Really happy to have spent the first 80% of my work-day on this huge chunk. Now that it’s done, I can move on to the smaller moving pieces with much more ease. Productivity 101.

The Atlantic: “The Tragedy of Erik Killmonger”

Another thoughtful piece on Black Panther over at The Atlantic: Black Panther is a love letter to people of African descent all over the world. Analyzing the tragedy of Erik Killmonger, the film’s main antagonist: The part of Killmonger that makes him a supervillain is not the part of him that is African. Indeed the fact that this character has so much interesting backstory, and a complex logic that is the result of his environment makes Killmonger the most interesting villain I’ve seen in a blockbuster since The Joker in Nolan’s The Dark Knight back in 2008.

[The New Yorker] “Black Panther and the invention of Africa”

I’ve been catching up on a lot of Wakanda-related reading over the past week. This one from The New Yorker makes a series of great points: “There is a fundamental dissonance in the term “African-American,” two feuding ancestries conjoined by a hyphen. That dissonance—a hyphen standing in for the brutal history that intervened between Africa and America—is the subject of “Black Panther,” Ryan Coogler’s brilliant first installment of the story of Marvel Comics’ landmark black character.
