Last week I went to my 14th Prodigy show. It was one of the best ones I’ve ever been to. The Kiev crowd was intense but fun, and there was a fan zone so there was a lot of room to move around. The sound was great and new beats were played. I also went [...]

Every person has a different way of getting things done (e.g. Jerry Seinfeld’s Productivity Secret.) My method uses a calendar. It’s simple: Every task is a calendar event with a date, time and duration. Even if it’s something that doesn’t have a specific date and time, you have to put it somewhere in the calendar. [...]
My two partners and I decided to close down Blenure, the company we set up to create Playrock, our mobile, social and local gaming network and infrastructure. Our failure to execute taught me a lot, so while it’s a shame it didn’t work out for us, I’m happy that we gave it a shot, and [...]

Compared to last year, 36 doesn’t come with thoughts about choices, but with a look to the future. It’s been two years now working on Playrock. We released as beta without advertising and are [...]

Again I missed my gym anniversary by a day. My current workouts consist of running 11+ km (in about one hour) twice a week and some simple workouts at home for the upper body, which help me avoid some lower back pain I’ve suffered from lately. For some reason around this time of year running [...]
To those of you who have been wondering what I’ve been doing over the past 18 months, I finally have something to show for all this time. We released Playrock, which is “a social gaming network where you can play with people who are next to you. Players can instantly create their own virtual spaces, [...]
Kneading is traditionally associated with juvenile behavior of domestic cats. However, it has also been observed in grown up wild cats, so there are quite a few theories to this behavior. Here’s Ace kneading on a relaxed Saturday afternoon. If you listen carefully (or turn up the volume) you can hear her purring as well.
A few days ago I came back from my short trip to Belgrade, Serbia, where I went to see The Prodigy for the 13th time as part of their self-organized Warriors Dance Festival. Needless to say, I had an amazing time, especially because it’s been two years since the 12th show in Athens. With me [...]
