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.
The Digital Speaker series: Tech Journal - episode 2
My latest episode:
In this 2nd episode of the Tech Journal, The Digital Speaker discusses some of the biggest digital news to date. Starting by taking a look at Samsung Electronics’ plans for 6G and what this level of the internet could enable us to do. After, I go where no internet has gone before and takes a look at Space internet, what it is, who’s doing it, and what it could mean for humanity. Then I'll finish the show tackling digital #urrency, specifically China’s digital Yuan (the DCEP) and how it’s on track to topple the dollar.
So, put your feet up, get comfortable and let us start speaking digital.
