One Way or Another

Let’s find each other.

Events and meetups provide a great way to maintain relationships and meet new contacts. But because of the corona-crisis, everything is canceled. We can’t meet in person.

So let’s find each other online. Reach out to new people, join an online event, and make sure to check in with people you already know. 

That last one is very important. Because when we go to an event or meetup, for many of us, the main goal is really: to provide extra value to the connections you already have. 

People do this by looking for ways to help someone else. Perhaps you can connect them to someone else from your network who can help them? Or perhaps you have recently read an interesting article that addresses their pain points that you can share with them? 

These days, any positive input is generally appreciated, as long as you don’t expect anything in return. 

In short, be sincere. “we’re in the same boat“.

It combines the interactions between acoustic sound waves, the space and interactions with our head and ears. Most immersive audio concepts have existed for decades. But the interest in immersive audio has increased enormously in recent years…

More Creators, Do We Need Them?

Software is a great combination between artistry and engineering. – Bill Gates. The term engineering is derived from the Latin ingenium, meaning “cleverness” and “to contrive, devise”. To plan, or invent by careful thought. This inspired me. These days a lot of people call themselves a creator. To “create” means to put something into existence.
