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

I write about the intersection of technology, society, history, finance, business, 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.

I’m particularly intrigued in understanding how the world works. Why?

Mostly just for fun. To quench an insatiable curiosity. And also because I’m convinced that there is so much truth and beauty in the world to learn and experience.

But answering the question how does the world work’ first requires a multidisciplinary lens. Second, it usually requires answering how did the world work’. This is why most of my reading is grounded by 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’. And finally, fit in 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 our lives.

Does this sound like your kind of thing?
