In today's episode, I have the pleasure of having Nikola Danaylov, aka Socrates, to Devolutions HQ. He's an international bestselling author, keynote speaker, futurist, strategic adviser and philosopher. His book Conversations with the Future: 21 Visions for the 21st Century is a #1 Amazon Bestseller and his Singularity.FM is one of the most widely sought out podcasts in the niche. During the show we discuss all sorts of interesting IT related information, whether it is a futuristic toothbrush, or the importance of having a personal code of ethics when developing software. It's a bit longer than usual, so feel free to minimize the screen and just listen to the audio.

Just so everyone is clear. We know that our audience comes from a wide variety of backgrounds, both religious and political so the views, information, or opinions expressed in this video are solely those of the individuals involved and do not necessarily represent those of Devolutions Inc its employees.
