Jacob's favourite part of the creative process

My favourite part of each project is learning something from it. In fact, the entire creative process is

a process of leaning for me. Understanding the challenge and the needs of the people involved, being able to surprise myself with new ideas, understanding and applying technology in an original way are all part of the magic for me. And when I put something out there and see how people receive it, that is

the most important lesson.

Technology that has made a big impact on Jacob

Blockchain! Following this space gives me a lot of hope for fairness of the global economy and governance in the future. I am expecting an internet-sized revolution in the next 5-10 years and it is impossible to foresee all it will bring. However today I am already using a couple of pretty good decentralised apps and platforms as an alternative to a bank. 

Tech should make us better, not lazier | FastCompany

Like it or not, many tech startups profit from human laziness, fear and stupidity. Jacob Jelen is working with the top tech companies to change that and help people reach their full potential, be smart, ambitious and ultimately live a better life. From tools to better understand the world outside and make more rational decisions, to things that help you better understand your own complicated mind and work with it...
