If books are food for the soul – bookstores and libraries are great halls for feast. Reading not only helps us gain new perspectives and expand our horizon, it also helps us take a break from our ever-connected digital lives – where information is constantly being pushed to us. Books allow us the luxury of immersing ourselves in moments that go as far as our minds would wander – and travel abroad without the physical burden of a voyage. As J.K. Rowling said: “If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book.”
This week, we have the pleasure of hosting Simon Cocking from Irish Tech News. Theodora Lau and Arun Krishnakumar discuss several aspects of the publication and Simon's favourite books in this episode. Simon commands a global following within the Blockchain industry, and is considered one of the top advisers in this space. He also had a few thoughts on what went wrong with the industry, and what needs to be done to get it back on track.
Simon shares his journeys at the Irish tech news, effects of Brexit on the Irish tech community, and the rise of emergence markets and its effect on readership at Irish tech news.
We hope that you will enjoy our conversations with book lovers and accomplished authors on FinTech, Innovation, Longevity, Technology, and more.
