with the modest success of my last year's talk the lost medium i was reinvited by the kind folks of voxxed days belgrade to delve into this topic a bit further. vdb17 was an amazing experience – again – being one of the biggest and most inspiring technology conferences in eastern europe with excellent speakers from all over the world and about 800+ attendees.
my previous talk focused a lot on the early days of personal computing, the ingenious ideas we lost over time and the notion that we're not really thinking about how we can use the medium computer to augment our human capabilities.
after delivering this talk however i had the feeling that i left out an important question: what now? how can we improve?
this was the base for my new talk, the bullet hole misconception, in which i'm exploring how we can escape the present to invent the future and what questions must we ask if we are to amplify our human capabilities with computers.
feel free to share it and if you have questions, feedback or critique i'd love to hear from you!

My letters are about long-lasting, sustainable change that fundamentally amplify our human capabilities and raise our collective intelligence through generations. Would love to have you on board.
