An audiojournal documenting my journey to become a trillionaire.
I believe that I can become a trillionaire by creating massive value through ambitious empathy, magical technology, and egoistic altruism; because the best way to become wealthy, is to help everyone else become wealthy too.
Welcome to my PATH.
Byebye, for now
Stepping back and letting go to let the possibilities align.
Letting Go - The Art of Reinventing Yourself
"The tighter we cling to an identity, the harder it becomes to grow beyond it." - James Clear, Atomic Habits. In this audiojournal entry, I talk about the importance of letting go of past behaviours and ideas that we may identify with, in order to grow beyond it and reach the next level of our lives. I currently identity as an ambitious, futuristic thinker. That has been what allowed me to get out of the depths of depression I was in before. But now that I want to be the type of person that can change lives and provide value in the present, I am coming to realize the need to let go of that idea and instead adopt a range of things that I want to be. I want to be a designer, an inventor, and the type of person that can increase the quality of life of everyone around me. I want to be more. To do so, I am letting go of what I was before.
The Beauty of Mistakes (esp in Design) - 11/9/2020
Mistakes are opportunities for growth, learning, and change. In this short audiojournal entry, I share my Lovie's realizations about mistakes and riff on that wisdom in the realm of UX design in immersive experiences.
Goodbye, iSimu VR. It was fun, thanks for all the zombies. - 11/7/2020
I'm leaving the arcade. Today marks my last day at work. It's bittersweet occasion. But a necessary one. Or at least a good choice for me to push myself further. This arcade has been a great place to work, learn, and grow. I am thankful for my experience here and will always be happy to help and to hang out with the folks I've worked with here. Alas, it is time to sail onwards towards the ever beckoning horizon.
Drafting the Next Generation of VR - 11/5/2020
Virtual Reality in the next few years needs to have standalone headsets with PC-level processing power. It also needs cohesive content that allows people to immerse themselves into a new reality of possibilities and opportunities. And it all needs to be built on more ethical and flexible business models. In this audiojournal entry, I try and figure out what the immediate next generation of immersive technology should be.
The role of dopamine, variable rewards, and environmental constraints in design - 11/4/2020
Knowledge is as much in the world as it is in the mind. Psychological concepts like habit loops from dopamine, the evolutionary significance of variable rewards, and the nature of constraints born from our environment all play into how we can design better things. In this audiojournal entry, I try to connect these dots to designing VR/AR experiences.
