The f(x) = e^x | Step into the Metaverse - available now!
Good Day! This is my weekly newsletter, with a dose of insights into the future. The topic of this newsletter is the exponential times we live in, hence the title of f(x) = e^x, which is the (natural) exponential function.

Step into the Metaverse – Available Now!
My latest article:
In the past months, I went down the rabbit hole of the metaverse, and I came out the other end knowing that the immersive internet is the future of our society. It might not look like it now, but as the late Clay Christensen said: ”The next big thing often starts off looking like a toy”.
In the coming years, the metaverse will change society and how we work, socialize and play. My new book - Step into the Metaverse: How the Immersive Internet Will Unlock a Trillion-Dollar Social Economy - will help you prepare for this paradigm shift.
The hardcopy and eBook are available now in the United States, and you can purchase them on Amazon, Barnes&Noble, or any of the other online bookstores. The audiobook will become available end of July. In addition, the book will be translated into Mandarin, Korean, Vietnamese and Portuguese. In the coming weeks, the book will become available across the globe.
If you are interested in a free preview of the book, you can download it here or view it on LinkedIn. Enjoy reading it!

3. Anti-abortion activists collect data to prosecute post-Roe...
In the United States, anti-abortion activists are preparing for a post-Roe era when abortion is no longer an individual's right. With some states encouraging people to find and report women who visit an abortion clinic, the hunt for location data, license plate data, video data, and other private data is on. The day Roe vs Wade will be overturned will be a sad day for women and privacy. (MIT)
