The tropical heat that has spread across Eastern Europe is not keeping the DOKU:TECH team away from an epic tech weekend.
From swimming to board meetings to a simulated flight into space, Esther Dyson shared a great story on her week life for Wall Street Journal, and is not far from sharing more amazing stories among the inspiring line-up of speakers coming down to Prizren, Kosovo on August 8-9 to embark on a tech-conference, now on it’s second annual organization.
The problems of 1 percent
“The problems these people are solving are mostly first-world problems. They’re dealing with the problems of the 1 percent,” said Dyson on an interview last weekend at Alpha 2015 in New York, while focusing her talk on problems like food logistics, the Internet of Things in the real world and not just on rich people’s wrists.
The 63-year-old technology investor, who ran PC Forum – an annual event that was legendary in digital circles, where she was rubbing shoulders with Bill Gates, a young Larry Page was peddling the search engine that was to become Google and Mark Zuckerberg touted a new social network, that same person is coming to the city of Prizren, a city that shares a lot of History and where history is about to be made again.
A digital age Guru
Esther Dyson is a venture capitalist, digital age guru, and trained cosmonaut who in golf shirt and jeans, comes across of the world to seed investment in money that brings money.
Dyson is also founder of the initiative of the Health Initiative Coordinating Council (HICCup) which aims to detect five measures of health and better health life in the future. Esther is also an angel investor and adviser to healthcare, technology, and aerospace companies.
Esther has dedicated her life to breakthrough technology that aims to dramatically improve the lives and well-being of humans. Maybe DOKUTECH will be your one and only opportunity to meet her, because she is planning to spend her retirement in space!
