One of these things were inheriting the best of genes from my mother and father — together.
Both of them are very smart — but had no degrees, grades at all. My mother hardly finished elementary school. My father just finished secondary school at the age of 35 while getting some KITA* from my mother.
(*for the unintiated: KITA is a management technique — it stands for: Kick In The Ass).
Then this feeling of having had smart but uneducated parents plus the feeling that I may have been missing out some actual knowledge led me to get 4 different…
Free will has been one of the most important issues in philosophy for long.
If us, humans, have Free will or not is already, at least, a 7 Million USD question (Philosophers and neuroscientists join forces to see whether science can solve the mystery of free will).
Or just think about the very recent case of Lisa Montgomery who murdered (in 2004) a pregnant women just to get her child as her own. Her being guilty or not has been debated for more than a decade. On one side she were extremely abused as a child herself surely altering her…
I predicted Trump winning the U.S. presidential elections on October 23, 2016, find the original post here.
Then I wrote another one a few days ago — about Trump winning again. I was wrong, it seems.
Now if you are a Democrat-it is time for champagne. And just because of the title of this article you will unfollow me on Medium.com.
If you are a Republican-you just may want to kill yourself.
Not so fast.
The truth is that the U.S. and the world has been missing real political innovation for long.
By real innovation I mean that we know…
You can find the article I posted here on Medium.com on October 23, 2016 here.
That was a prediction of mine about Trump becoming the president of the U.S.
And it happened.
Around that time I had less empathy towards Trump voters. I actually almost despised them for being who they are.
Time flies — and people become wiser. So did I.
I still do believe that although now it is said — at the time of writing this article — Trump has about 10% chance of winning, I still do believe he will win, again.
Why? Because there is…
Avagy hogy nem csináltunk semmit a GDPR-ra. Na jó — majdnem semmit.
A GDPR komplex. Nem az. Összefoglaljuk mi is ez:
Ne húzd fel az előfizetőidet, vevőidet, ügyfeleidet azzal hogy visszaélsz a személyes adataikkal.
GDPR? Egyszerű. Mi szóltunk.
Ha madarakról, autókról, számlákról tartasz nyilván adatokat — amelyeknek nincs köze emberekhez — az nem személyes adat. A GDPR ezekkel nem foglalkozik.
2. Voltak szabályok a GDPR előtt is, csak a büntetési tételek növekedtek. …
GDPR is complex. Not. If you manage personal data of any EU citizen, read on. A summary of what it is and what to do:
Do not piss off your subscribers, customers, clients with abusing their personal data.
GDPR is really easy. It is common sense.
If you handle, store, process data of any EU citizen, GDPR still applies.
You will pay a penalty of 4% of your revenues or 20 Million EUR — whichever is higher.
Sigmund Freud was the first pioneer when it came to understanding people scientifically.

Today hiring a programmer or a software engineer is a challenge.
Or so it goes.
Knowing when to hire what type of software engineer is fundamentally important.
There is a very good book on software engineering from Ian Sommerville:
In it, there is a very important definition: software systems are socio-technology systems. “Socio” comes first: humans come first. Software is written for humans. To do things better, to enjoy things better. It is self-evident, for sure.
Any software business must have a mission it lives for. And it must be exciting. If it is not — then that software…
Why Chester Bennington, the singer of Linkin Park committed a suicide is not clear yet.
It may have been him or it may just have been just us: our expectations.
Linkin Park had had several albums before. But their most recent album received mixed reviews, especially from core magazines and reviewers. Chester Bennington (the singer) got pissed off several times.
“Bennington, in response to claims of selling out with the album, responded “I will punch you in your fucking mouth … You’re a fucking pussy.””
Eventually he seemed to accept the situation, though, saying:
Democracy today is a complete lie.
One example: the debate about global warming.
Let’s assume you live in a house with 6 flats. Some of you notice that the temperature is rising. And all of you realize that if this will be going on some of you will lose his flats as flats become just too hot during the summer:
What would you do — without politicians
You ask an engineer to check the situation and it turns out that if you install an air conditioning system for the entire house (a.k.a. …
