Hold fast to dreams for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly. —
Introducing Brain as a Service (BaaS)…
I was visiting my brother in NYC last week to take a break for Thanksgiving. One day, as I was sitting in Central Park, one of my favorite spots in NYC, staring at nothing in particular, a sudden, random and absolutely nerdy thought struck me - what if we had an API to access our brain.
It doesn’t interest me
What you do for a living.
What I want to know
Is what you ache for and
If you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.
Maximize this and you are probably doing it right.
Life = Σ Happiness(t)
t=now to t=end of life
where Happiness(t) is how happy you are at a given time t.
I am one of those people that likes to think up an idea, believe it’s awesome and jump right into building it. That’s allrite if you build for fun, but if you want a serious startup, I’ve learnt that it’s important to validate the idea first. Basically, figure out if what you are building is really useful, if there’s a market for it and if people are willing to pay for your solution. After doing a simple common sense validation in your head, you have to reach out to check if others feel the same way.
Here’s how you can go about it (in no particular order):

Capitalism, in my opinion, is the human version of natural selection - the survival of the fittest. Ideally, ‘fitness’ in capitalism should be measured by one’s positive impact on the world. People that take the human species forward, by making lives better, should be the ones ‘selected’ to receive a bigger share of resources and hence, benefit a better chance of ‘survival’. For instance, someone who discovers a cure to a dangerous disease, creates a technology that helps people be more productive or figures out a way to increase crop yield, should be rewarded with more money and fame than the rest. For the most part I’m okay with this idea and consider it fair. I think most people are with me on this.
