Farming, Food and Data

How are farmers keeping track of their data? Is that data secure and independent? Are they blocked and hostage of a certain provider? I believe that the next revolution in farming is going to be based on a distributed network of local, sustainable and responsible food hubs. But to get to this reality there are […]

The problem of too much ambition

Ambition blinds you. It puts horse blinkers on that stop you from seeing other opportunities. Uncontrolled Ambition is a great igniter of greed and selfishness. After reading to Bob Iger, I came to the realization that ambition is overrated. Is a term of taking instead of giving. Is focused of self-achievement, is not about the […]

Can we open source farming?

The more I learn and work in the field and in the technology that will work on the field, the more I found that farming needs open source tools. From protocols and equipment, to digital tools. As one of the oldest professions of the Antropocene, agriculture has evolved from the transmission of knowledge from generation […]

¿Educar en casa un asunto de Religiosos, Hippies y Ermitaños? – Parte 1

Hasta hace unos meses la educación en casa era un tabú. Al mencionar a nuestros amigos o familiares que queríamos educar a nuestros hijos en casa, la primera pregunta era “¿Por qué?” y la segunda era “¿Están seguros?”. Y es entendible. El sistema educativo actual es una respuesta a una sociedad industrial que a levantado […]

Globalization and the Internet make us know each other […]

Premature complexity: an enemy of innovation

For +13 years or more than 12k hours, I’ve been trying to solve problems using code. Of those, I found myself over and over again surrounded of the same principles: “Don’t Repeat Yourself, Keep it Simple Stupid, Write Once Test Twice, etc”. I’ve tried to abide by those as much as possible. But I found […]

The moral dilema

Full disclosure, I am not a philosopher. When you think of doing the “right” thing, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? What makes you FEEL good? What BENEFITS you? What is CONSIDERED GOOD for others? The moral dilema until this day has been unresolved. As we go deeper and deeper in our […]

The Barn-sized Vending Machine

If we don’t have to go to the supermarket, how are we going to get our food? It’s going to look very different than what we have today. I imagine in the future we will pick (or get delivered) a subscription box that will contain all our basic needs in terms of food. It will […]

The supermarket experience is obsolete

In 20 years we will think back of supermarkets and will ask ourselves, why it took us that long to replace it? Was the internet too slow? The supermarket experience is completely inadequate for the 21st century. Let me walk you to the process – in case you have not visited a supermarket in the […]

You are replaceable unless you bring value

The current post-industrial – technocratic – era will transform organizations. Before, you (as put nicely by Seth Godin) needed to comply. A set of rules, a book of norms, and 100 page manual. Your job was to follow the rules and punch the card. Now, I am starting to see a new type of organizations […]
