What does it mean to have friends? They contact you, you contact them, to engage in activities together, outside of work. In an ideal future, work is aligned with voluntary pursuits. You need a system of initiating and maintaining contact. https://medium.com/suomesta/philosophy-of-innovation-1ac6ff033e75 What makes friendship worthwhile is to have well developed hobbies – e.g. Kinopoli, not just to watch films, but have background and analyses ranging from narratives to cinematography – namely, sophistication. The quality in both is indispensably linked, and with what it means to become developed as a person, to achieve flourishing, to experience the most elevating aspects of living. What is epidemic is not just the symptoms of isolation and anguish, but a lack of skill to develop sophistication and to connect. Something is also missing from tools of facilitation. Mostly related to language tech… Also the many steps between physical phenomena that are available for analysis by machines and the mental life of psycholinguistics, from particles of air, to spectrograms, to phonemes, to lexicon, to structural semantics, to pragmatics, to thoughts, sentiments, and qualia computed by the electricity between neurons… Greater products and wealth are to be created by having original insight and understanding of the nature of things Kahneman has explained the experiencing and the remembering self. My opinion: the value of experiences is as good as making it available in cognitive processing – memory, as reconstructed is as good as the past – and what we experience through the senses is as good as real – it is living To connect at the level of the intellect, what is needed is a vehicle or stage, a facilitating setup of object that brings multiple minds to a shared topic. What is the act of sharing a link, writing or reading a message, having a seminar, a workshop – analogous to Werner Herzog’s idea that the world needs “adequate images”, what we lack are adequate “PowerPoints”, forthcoming, of substance, lucid, cogent, high-quality as if carefully handcrafted, on any of the millions of topics, appropriate to the one at hand. A meaningful discussion on a specific topic needs a good setup

CEOI at DotYet.com
DotYeti.com is the most creative, on-demand unlimited graphic design platform for a flat monthly fee. From (re)branding, logos to social media posts, ads, animations, print media, and much more. DotYeti.com has made it cheaper and faster to achieve every kind of creative need for every kind of business. Founded in 2020, DotYeti is still a young company, but has the vision to make remote work accessible & affordable. DotYeti found her roots from a result-driven digital agency. The founders experienced that their clients were more than ever in need of creatives, but the process of producing high-quality graphic design was expensive, slow, and inefficient. It was time to step up the game. Our goal became to support and take over all the graphic design needs for SMEs, agencies, and other marketing teams. We developed the DotYeti platform to structure and automate the design flow. Moreover, we provide a personal, creative team to ensure high-quality designs that match the client’s branding. This resulted in a highly efficient, yet simple way to produce any kind of graphic design. On top of all, able to keep the price very affordable. Think about how I can get back to work again! I love to have a purpose. I get my inspiration from everyone around me. I believe that everyone has a certain thought or skill to bring to the table. Life is too short to keep discussing about the small things.
Alex
Deep Learning Engineer at Vexcel imaging
Graz, Austria
Hey! I’m a doing deep learning on aerial images (like the ones you see in your maps app when you enable “satellite view” - when you’re close enough, those aren’t actually satellite images btw) for a company in beautiful Austria. Coming out of high school, I wanted to study history & philosophy - a long and twisted journey led me to statistics and machine learning in the end. Didn’t identify as a developer/engineer until my first full-time job but happy to do now. Probably running - for a few years (roughly 2016-2018) I absolutely geeked out on ultrarunning. Trained a lot, thought about it even more, planning every meter of elevation and every calorie eaten for important races, only to throw all plans away during the competition. My co-workers: I have been lucky to work with great people. The person that is always open for questions, patient in answering them and challenges you to apply the answers yourself the next time. The person that doesn’t want to write a line of code they don’t understand. The person that is fearless in tackling big projects and just gets started. The person that can take in everything around them, let it simmer for weeks or months, and then combines everything in a brilliant idea in the matter of days. The person that never stops working on their tools. The person with a million side projects. I get inspired to be a tiny bit like them when I work with them every day.

Creator/Founder at Million Frames
Berlin, Germany
Shaping world-class experiences on mobile and web. When users interact with your product, it should tell them an amazing story, driving your business forward. I can help you create that story. Would love to get feedback on my side project, millionframes.com. Let’s create something together! Hey, I’m Aashish. A designer from a filmmaking and engineering background. I’m the creator of Million Frames with a vision to help businesses with design solutions to their problems by integrating the values into visuals and creating products with a human-centered design approach. I saw Jurassic Park for the first time when I was 10 years old. I still believe it’s one of the most creative things I have ever seen. 10 years after that, In my college, I got interested in making science fiction short films. I taught myself film making and software skills to create visual effects. I followed my passion and chose to be a creative professional. Little did I know that watching movies will end up getting me in design, videos, and a creative career. I would be creating a better world with better design! My future me. Sounds paradoxical but it is like that. Although, Cristiano Ronaldo has been the greatest inspiration in my life with his work ethic and on-pitch performance.
