Hi there, I’m Daesol, a strategy guy at a tech start-up based in Sydney, Australia.

I write about the intersection of technology, society, business, finance, history, and the human condition. I share key takeaways from books that profoundly refreshed my worldview. And I curate multidisciplinary ideas that kept me up at night in my once-every-few-weeks newsletter.

Why I write

I’m particularly intrigued in understanding how the world works. Because I’m convinced the world has so much truth to uncover and beauty to experience.

But answering the question How does the world work? first requires a multidisciplinary lens. It also requires first answering How did the world work?. This explains my obsession with reading history.

Then we can start speculating on How will the world (most likely) work? As well as forming views on How should the world work?

Finally, this leads to What should be my contribution to how the world should work?

In this spirit, Neurabites simplifies complexity and promotes transdisciplinary thinking. Ultimately, and practically, to enhance our work and everyday lives.

Sound like your kind of thing?
