Howdy, πŸ‘‹ I’m Artur.

I write about the global consciousness that is the Internet and I help build online businesses at Tumblr and WordPress.com

Both Software Engineer and Psychologist by education, I dive deep into second-order consequences of connecting everybody and everything to the same network

As my day job, I help build online businesses at Tumblr & WordPress.com. I created this site to explore how global consciousness reshapes society, economy, labor, and art. I focus on:

  • Helping to create a healthy economy in the magical land of the Internet,
  • Channeling the power of technology, capitalism and human creativity towards sustainable stewardship for our planet and other species,
  • Making Remote Work work, so you get to find a fulfilling vocation regardless of where you’re born.
