How do you plan on keeping up with the exponential rate of technological change?
This graphic is a fantastic overview of how I’ve tried to keep up. Here is a quick summary of some key points:
study biographies: learning about the early days of paypal has been impactful to understanding the early days of crypto.
**teach yourself: **I don’t wait for the book or must-read blog, I just start researching.
work with young people: this is KEY. It’s hard to understand crypto if you don’t use Venmo. Don’t use Venmo? Then you need to hang out with people who do.
AI: playing with AI like Stable Diffusion has been an eye opener. Go play with it.
ELI5: both the hardest and most impactful, can you explain the new thing to a 5 year old? I love this metric because it changes you from “do you understand it” to “can you explain it?”
BUT, I’m awful at foreign languages. I can learn a new programing language long before a can learn a new spoken language. Know your strengths and play to them.
