So what is this blog about?
Whenever technology has arrived, it has always been disruptive, from the steam engine to the first Macintosh. It does not ask before it changes the social, cultural and economic landscape. FreeStyleDive is an effort to capture and reflect on the changes happening around us everyday. In a way, this blog helps to humble myself, and stay relevant so when kids say “My robot crashed so I couldn’t do my homework” instead of “my dog ate it”, I don’t freak out.
