The Evolution of Modern Technology

Technology can be argued to be as old as man itself; various inventions like electricity, steam engines, railways, etc., have all changed the existence of man and how we view the world. However, most of these innovations have now become more of infrastructures with most governments now regulating and owning these spaces. The more recent definition of technology is one that is mostly borne from the invention of the world wide web in 1989. The internet remains one of the most important innovations of mankind and a springboard for most of the massive strides made by man in recent times…


The internet was supposed to be an infrastructure that gave everyone access to self-actualize and create value no matter how competitive it became, but we are failing at that.

When the worldwide web was invented in 1989, it ushered in a new way of looking at the world; various types of internet solutions and technology companies began to spring up. The web became the most talked-about infrastructure of modern times as man continued to find more ways to create and share value.

The beauty of the web is that it is not just a solution or digital product, but it was invented as an infrastructure for other internet related solutions to be built upon, and it hasn’t really failed in that regards as we have seen the rise of…


A simple guide for making better decisions

When a man is being told to act rationally, he is either being told to apply logic intelligently to a situation or to put aside his emotion to make an accurate decision.

To act rationally is mostly ascribed with acting intelligently and optimizing the options available to you in order to make an intelligent and correct decision.

However, when it comes to our interactions with human beings, there are several schools of thought and some believe that to truly build strong bonds and better relationships, we must let ourselves be vulnerable and let our “hearts” guide and not our “heads”.

A platform built by us and for us.

The debate will always remain on whether the internet brought us together as humans or separates us the more, but what no one can deny is how powerful and important the web has become to man, especially as a tool for creating and accessing values.

The web has changed the world to a more digital one and has helped nations evolve from the exclusive brick and mortar structures into a more dynamic and fluid system for services and operations; the influence and prints of the web can be seen in financial services, agriculture, health, education, transportation and other major aspects…


The Central Bank Digital Currency(CBDC) is the Government’s attempt to create an equivalent Bitcoin except for this time it would be a centralized currency just like existing fiat currencies. Therefore, the major question would be which currency would likely come out on top, if the CBDC is finally launched, and what are the likely dynamics that would be at play?

Cryptocurrency really became a thing in 2009 after the most popular Crypto, Bitcoin, was made open source. Since then, Bitcoin’s adoption has grown massively in spite of various obstacles especially opposition from the government and mainstream investors, the opposition or resistance from the government majorly stems from the decentralized nature of cryptocurrencies with the digital currencies running on decentralized structures and Blockchain technology thus bypassing any centralized financial institution including the Central banks owned by the government.

Despite the varying resistance from the government including various forms of bans in various countries, Bitcoin has grown massively in barely 10 years…


A new world order is coming, but this time it would be one that would give You and I autonomy; it would give us the freedom to self-actualize; it would give everyone the platform to create unique value for the world at large. A new world order is emerging, it’s our duty to let it have its course.

Sincerely, the first time I heard of the phrase ‘New World Order’ was when I was still a fan of World wrestling entertainment. In fact, I mostly knew the phrase in its abbreviated form, NWO. The NWO remains one of the most famous movements in World Championship Wrestling History, with famous members like Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash forming a part of the very popular group in the late 90s and early 2000s.

The storyline portrayed the group as one looking to take over WCW like a street gang, the movement was an instant hit that changed the face of…


Why Decentralization Is the Way Forward

Decentralization is the act of giving power to the people and it has always been evident and clearly seen in the dynamics of man’s existence as a social, political and even economical tool. For example, ending slavery, printing copies, establishing democracies, and so on. Should we learn from history? Yes. So, decentralize more. And give people power.

This article is a case for more autonomous systems, which means it will let us know why we should always build the kind of system that empowers everyone that exists in that system. And it implies even if one is a Dad building…


Make no mistake, the knowledge of hacking is different from a hacker. A hacker is a person, not a skill. And the use of any knowledge is a personal choice and that choice isn’t universal. In the same way, some politicians are corrupt, some hackers are corrupt. In the same way, some politicians are good, some hackers are good also. You may be a Satoshi Nakamoto or an Albert Gonzalez, it is your choice. There is nothing wrong with the hacker's knowledge. It is all about you.

What You’ll Learn

In this article, I’ll show you why hard work is required if you want to be a full-fledged hacker. I’ll tell you what different hackers are called and why they are called by that. I’ll give tongue to stories of some hackers so that you won’t end up spending some time in prison. I’ll also talk about how some hackers make money with their hacking skills in ways cops don’t arrest them. I’ll also tell you not to become a script kiddy because I heard it in class and I read it on blogs, although it is a piece of…
