The Age of Speed… when?

He said…

"We are now faced with the fact, my friends, that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there is such a thing as being too late. Procrastination is still the thief of time. Life often leaves us standing bare, naked, and dejected with a lost opportunity. The tide in the affairs of men does not remain at flood — it ebbs. We may cry out desperately for time to pause in her passage, but time is adamant to every plea and rushes on. Over the bleached bones and jumbled residues of numerous civilizations are written the pathetic words, "Too late."

Guess when was this spoken?

1963. By Martin Luther King Jr.

Guess he knew a thing or two about speed.

The geek part of me

According to First State of the Twitosphere in Malaysia, and “How long have you been tweeting”, I’m one of the first handful (maybe 20ish?) Malaysians who used Twitter, way back in 2006. @khailee

It’s dumb. But part of me feels like I’m the first man on the moon. I even did a “BOOYA” with hand gestures and all to the confused person beside me.

And then I stopped.

My ICQ number is 335339. That’s like 6 digits. I’ve never met anyone with 6 digits. Bet some of you don’t even know what ICQ is, do you? Not as 1337 as meeee…?

The same dumb part of me feels like I’m the first man on two freaking moons.

Then I stopped.

Acting like I’m part of history is good fun, but creating actual history should be pretty neat, too. Back to work…

Coworking at the original “The Hub” Islington, London

Here I am at what is probably the most well branded and established network of coworking spaces and community of interesting constructive people.

The Hub: http://the-hub.net/

It’s kinda like a gym membership but you work on your business, project, but not your body. And, you meet all kinds of people. Unlike a gym, they don’t distract you with their curves, grunts, or stares.

It’s actually rolled up card board with a flat board on it. This hub is packed with this thing. Doesn’t look too expensive to make eh. But very nice.

And, you can rent meeting rooms with plenty of sunlight! Helps you grow.

Me chilling out with the heater. It’s like 2 degrees right now in London.

For a small space (2000 sq ft) it’s incredibly well used.

And… This is how the hub makes money.

This business model allows it to span all over the place!
