Why I’m in Bangkok

March 7, 2019 · Posted in innovation · Comment 

Short answer, to make my life better. I want more productivity, more opportunities, and enjoy life now.

In 2006 I suffered a closed head brain injury that messed up a lot of my abilities including my memory. My life changed a lot. I lost all my money, my house, the tech media startup I founded, plus my ability to work. I was starting over from nearly nothing.

Having nothing actually opened up some opportunities. During the 12 years since the head injury I traveled to 4 continents and 11 countries. I wrote two books. I discovered a new way to think based on first principle that allows you to solve seemingly unsolvable problems. I’ve re-learned how to program computers & created an app called QuickMatch that solves the problem of measuring non-numeric data so you can confidently make really complex decisions easily.

Part of my plan in Bangkok is sharing my journey to launch this product & re-launch my life.

Why is better Bangkok better than where I was? Why is Bangkok better than other options?

Looking back on my life I’ve found that a better physical environment increases my productivity. After the head injury I need it even more than before.

Bangkok is:

  • Warm & sunny everyday. The sunshine does wonders for me feeling more productive. Medically it improves your immune system by creating vitamin D. The full spectrum light helps regulate sleep & awake cycles which is a big problem I have. Just as important is knowing it’s going to be nice. That removes the stress of hurrying to get things before being trapped inside again.
  • Green & flowers everywhere. Literally teeming with life despite being a major city. That’s a very nice thing about Bangkok.
  • Cheap fresh food. I can eat fabulously prepared meals made from ingredients that came from the farm that morning for less that the cost of just the ingredients in the USA. Healthier & less stress which is very important to me.
  • Better business & social environment.
    • 15 million people.
    • Active entrepreneurial community
    • People open to new experiences.

That is why I’m in Bangkok.

Bluesky Whiteboard

Looking out the window at the palm trees in Bangkok while working on my “Wluesky Whiteboard” is extra motivating. Finding co-working space when traveling can be a hassle & expensive. A window or mirror is nearly always available & might even have an inspiring view.

SeepeopleS — Interest is the Real Net

July 10, 2007 · Posted in innovation, sharing · Comment 

A few weeks ago I randomly found a music video on YouTube that I liked a lot. Then this weekend when I went to the studio to return a camera I ran into Peter Keys (keyboardist for Bob Segar & Kid Rock). I hadn’t seen Peter in a few years since he worked on Bikini Calculus when I produced that. He and I talked about our new projects and come to find out he is the keyboardist of SeepeopleS.

People talk about it being a small world when you find someone in a place you don’t expect. They feel its a coincidence. It might be but its more likely that you both are their because you share interests.

Out of the millions of videos on YouTube I “randomly” found SeepeopleS but in reality I was looking for things I liked. And Peter Keys and I shared some things in common and that is why we had met originally and he worked on Bikini Calculus. So when I found the music video it was because it interested me. Its not surprising that I would like a song a friend likes.

The web makes it easier to find your friends, even among the billions of people out there. The Net is not computers, its the links between people
