Hold up! Sustainability

“A new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move toward higher levels.”

– Albert Einstein

The idea of sustainability began to make its way into the academic literature by the end of 1900’s, and since that time it has gone through substantial evolution. Based on the idea that the resources on Earth are not indefinite sustainability refers to consuming the resources considering the needs of the next generations. According to one standard reference of the English language, Webster’s New World Dictionary states that the word sustainability originates from a fusion of two Latin words: 'sus' which means 'up' and 'tenere' which means 'to hold'. 

“My crown is called content,
a crown that seldom kings enjoy”

William Shakespeare

Art speaks fearlessly..

When the time comes, when ALL are the same.. thinking about how WE ALL are the same now.

Artificial Intelligence & Transformation        of Communication

The process starting with digesting the information whether it is a past data or a newly produced one by technological tools, controlling where this information comes from, where it goes and what is the purpose of this flow should all end up with the reality check to see if the produced information has an equivalent in reality or real life. 

Blockchain.. a short sight of mine

Blockchain is the driving force for the new evolution of the internet. Blockchain technology is not changing the whole internet world at a disruptive level. Discussions on the level of disruption reminds me of the critics on the new medium of the past times "television".. The idea that every new technology creates a new world, a new society, a new phase of history, critisizing television as a new technology for mass communication was said to altered the world during the 70’s. Now that Blockchain has come as a new technology, we will continue using the internet as well as our personal computers, mobile devices, social media platforms etc. What changes through Blockchain is the data structures that are at the background of the internet as well as the techniques used to keep and manage information.

Definition of CSR
