I used to hate podcasts. Radiology, 3D printing, AR/VR are all perfect for us visual animals.

Why would you listen to a conversation when you can just watch it on Youtube? (By the way, I still think Clubhouse will fail.)

But in a pandemic, there are suddenly many lonely walks…

To be able to imagine the dramatic change in a system that has existed for thousands of years, stepping away to see the bigger picture is necessary. One important but the overlooked word, “healthcare”, needs to be clearly defined first. Based on Wikipedia (i.e. crowdsourced definition), healthcare is the “maintenance…

Throughout history, advancements in science and technology invariably resulted in new societal power shifts. Because of technology, groups aggregated, and countries formed.
