Coworking Bansko

December 15, 2016

It is the people behind any cause that make a difference and turn any endeavour into a worthwhile initiative. Those 3 – a Bulgarian, German and Austrian – just started a digital nomad hotspot in one of the prime ski resorts in Europe – Bansko, Bulgaria.

For digital nomads one of the key questions is Internet speed. Bulgaria has one of the fastest and most reliable Internet connections and a co-worker’s comment sums it up perfectly: “Someone please explain how a small mountain town in Bulgaria (pop. ~8000) can have Internet that’s 4-5 times faster than some of the best in Kuala Lumpur (pop. ~7,200,000).” Read on about this mountain gem Coworking Bansko here >>>

I was happy to be part of Co-working Camp 2016 in Turkey and build the mini site for the event.


Mind Map Ninja

December 12, 2016

When facing challenges – in life and/or work – someone who can help us better navigate through our thoughts is an invaluable gift. And what better personal coach than one who is passionate about programming and building software prototypes for thinking and learning. This particular coach could be literally anywhere in the world – Antti Halla is a digital nomad. There is a lot information about most of the things he does on his personal website.

Yes, I know personally a mind map ninja. I have worked with Antti on a few personal issues and he helped me get out of my old thinking habits. Can’t wait for his “Mind on Maps” book coming out shortly. Read on about the book here >>>

Café Society

December 4, 2016

Café Society (2016) – another very Woody Allen movie – lovely visuals and most charming performances. The setting – 1930s, Hollywood and New York sketched in art deco lines. Life and its agenda. And melancholy bubbling up all along despite its comedy genre. “Life is a comedy, written by a sadistic comedy writer.”


Genius

November 28, 2016

Genius (2016) –  a movie based on a true story. A moving encounter with Max Perkins, as the book editor at Scribner, Thomas Wolfe, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald and others. It takes a long time for geniuses to be discovered but it is only a genius that can recognize another one. A remarkable cast. Max Perkins – the strongest main character with a noble moral center, magnificently played by Colin Firth. A great story, which stays with you long after “The End” note.


Grateful

Grateful to have come across this: “If you woke up tomorrow only with the things you were grateful for today, what would you have.” Chris Georgiev, 17-year old Bulgarian. Video is in Bulgarian.

Get work done in the winter sun!

No, that is not a dream but rather a reality with Coworking Camp who provide temporary coworking space in a beach resort for startup founders, entrepreneurs, freelancers, remote workers and digital nomads. It is so much fun to be part of it 🙂
