Where is the story/cinema auteur’s place in the next decade? Is there a future for us or will we be facing ever harder times. I believe the coming decade will bring forth new ways to tell stories, unlike anything we’ve seen before, and it will be more accessible than it has ever been before. All of this will have a major impact on the Auteur Filmmaker/Storyteller. In the most profound way.Read More

Deep down inside me, I was certain Agatha was different. She gave us a sense of momentum since the Fissure. A sense that spoke volumes to everyone, that however bad things got inside us, there was still a reason to push forward. To go on with life as usual. To walk out the damned dog. To have that barbecue. And to drink oneself stupid. Just so you could, at least for a moment, pretend it was all real.
What a damned lie.
What if the current multi-million venture to break out of the Matrix succeeded? What if we got our answers during a world upending event named The Fissure? But they turned out to be not the ones we wished for.
“Agatha Unravelled” is a short story which revolves around one man’s need to come to terms with his grief, while he attempts to unravel the secret behind his wife’s death and how it connects with the Fissure.Read More
Two of the silicon Valley’s moguls latest project is to break us out of the Matrix, which they strongly believe exists and has the humanity enslaved. This is a perfect opportunity to look at the intersection of Technology and Spirituality and identify why these tech-billionaires have come to such a conclusion and what lies behind all of this, according to several ancient spiritual traditions.Read More

Every one of us is creating a gold mine for the Artifical Intelligence driven algorithms which will drive tomorrow’s online economy. And our children’s privacy is the currency of that economy.Read More
When most people are in fear of losing their job, it is grounded in today’s realites such as a world wide recession, fercier than ever competition in their successive fields or simple job outsourcing to more economically viable countries. But what I would like to do is to take a look at another factor, one which may be the single biggest impulse for a world wide change in employment rates – technological advances. And to be more precise, I want to put under careful scrutiny how Robots and recent forms of Artificial Intelligence might revolutionize our society through a possible automation of our future jobs.Read More
Sounds like an absurd notion to even consider, doesn’t it? One thing is to let an intelligent machine square off in a battle of chess or the recently won trivia game by the amazing neurolingual “Watson” from IBM, but a whole another matter is leaving your kid with a computer algorithm. Even if the kid would emotionally survive the inital period, would you? Or to put it differently, would you willingly leave your child with an algorithm which at best can only imitate empathy and other subtle human interactions.Read More
