“What are you doing, Jean?”
A friend from university asks me, “what are you doing, Jean?”
My answer — ” I am the founder of a digital city, an app, URIJI- With an estimated population of 50,000.”
The answer falls in a long silence of those double blue check in WhatsApp.
I continue about digital life as the primary source of income in the future, etc., and how to apply blockchain on interactions in decentralized, shared values. Emoji:😳
My friend: Very interested, maybe astonished, changed the subject:
-” Wow, that’s great, Jean. That’s quite industrious. My first granddaughter was just born, and I bought a small yacht .- (so you can imagine my face: 😰we are the same age).
I congratulate him, impressed, and start to wonder if I should ask him more about how his life is going. The pandemic already seems like a distant memory for him.
Strange days in 2021.
Not only generations by age but also generations by worldviews are colliding.
Generations of visions. Like the shocking optimism of the financial markets on the rise the past 31st of December.
Perhaps my friend gets a strange impression from his old friend (me🙃) who had studied philosophy and literature to eventually become a writer or a teacher.
Then another great friend (Eric Mellet) calls me from my corporate days (I didn’t ask him if he had any grandchildren, lol), and he tells me about his latest blog about VISA founder Dee Hock (92 years old). 💳
I start to research Dee Hock’s concept of Chaordic that combines chaos and order in the same word.
I get an interview with Dee Hock, and my mind explodes about his exciting vision of the future and the importance of observing Nature.
How Nature is always organized to organize ourselves and reveal our potential.
I was very excited because I am 100% “Chaordic,” you can listen and download everything in my post about Dee Hock, and I put the link to Eric Mellet’s fantastic blog.
