Media & Communication

I Just Made A Youtube Channel!

To me it appears that If you don't have a Youtube and you don't have a podcast these days it's like you are non existent. Yes I know it's weird because most people don't have any of that but especially if you love communicating a certain message like I do you actually have to be there in all those channels in order to get your message out there.

Have a look and please tell me what you think ?! I'd love to hear from you :D

My First Office X Talkshow Episode! (Birthday + the amazing gift!!)

WOHO!!!😀 Crazy, but today I hosted my very first LIVE TALKSHOW episode!! 2nd version of #officetalk!!!! Not only that but it's my birthday, how amazing is this universe, giving me the perfect gift, something I've been dreaming about doing my whole life, and NOW at the age of 28 I was ready! Thank you universe!
The topic was: "What's the future of jobs?"
I had the pleasure of interviewing the amazing Silvija SeresElin Nørve and Anders H. Lier !! 
Thank you so much! I had a blast!! As we mentioned in the end - if you want to learn more check out Katapult Future Fest , Oslo Freedom Forumand Future Leaders Global !!

Announcement, A Cool One!

I just got elected as one of four communicators in the Nordic Screens production Office X which is a social media and TV series concept initiated by NHO, Finans Norge, Rederiforbundet, Virke, Spekter and Civita.
It's an amazing project aiming to figure out where the future lies for Norway now when the exponential technology shift is marching towards us and how to prepare for it. 
If you are curious about this too - definitely follow us on Facebook, Youtube, Instagram and my Facebook page and my Instagram profile will be updated frequently. But! I'll also sometimes post here and on my own youtube channel :) I hope you'd like to join in on our journey!

It starts this Monday with live streams on Facebook and Youtube and will continue until July 2017. Only ten weeks sadly... Well! Let's Rock it when we can!
We will arrange weekly talkshows and podcasts and miniseries and a weekly one. Tune in or come by our office at Skøyen, Oslo, if you like! We'd love that!


And yes.. Btw, our last interviewer and final decision maker was The Prime Minister of Norway, Erna Solberg. How crazy is that? Pretty absurd if you ask me. So the the interviewing process was heavy enough with the CEO of NHO and Visma and so on. I'm flattered that I manage to stick through. It was heavy..!

Communication Gets Easier With New Translation Tools

Nooo more.

For as long as humans have existed communication across cultures and countries has been a challenge. Many times our only communication method has been interpretation of body language. Even though body language has 80 % to say in a conversation those last 20 % is pretty important if we don't speak the same language. It's such and unnecessary and sad barrier keeping us at a distance from each other.
There are roughly 6,500 languages in the world of today and only a few know english. Damn it has been hard to travel sometimes, I guess we all can sign up on that. 

But things are rapidly changing, more and more gadgets are entering the market helping us to fulfill this need. Because of this, some of us now have the opportunity to communicate clearly and efficiently in an instant. Live time. Great, huh!

However, hopefully there will be a universal language in the near future, preferably english..

Here are some of the gadgets thats available on the market now

Megaphonyaku is a translation service that uses a megaphone-shaped translator. For now it is only available to translate from Japanese to english, chinese and korean.

Made by Megaphonyaku


  • Waverly Labs is developing an earbud translator. It's called Pilot and it's the world’s first smart earpiece language translator available in French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and English next May 2017. The founder fell in love with a french girl and this is how the idea crossed his mind.
    Waverly Lab is a tech startup in NYC at the convergence of wearable technology and machine translation. 


  • Good old Google Translate is also getting better with AI and can translate more and more languages. Google can also translate voice to text in controlled environments.


  • Skype also has instant translation


Week In Review - March 19th

South By South West, an annual festival that should be high up on priority if you are interested in tech and future, music and film. Latest news and the pioneers in the field will be there.

Hope this weekly wrap-up sparks great conversations!

The annual SXSW was held in Austin this week, which is one of the ultimate festivals to go to. Ive been wanting to go for years but it's way to expensive if you dont travel for business purpose. I have a goal to be able to go there in 2018.
Haven't heard of it? Well you should definitely put that on the map travel destination if you are into tech, film and music. Its a massive festivals and the whole of California camp in Austin for a week to participate and get an update on the latest news in the field and where we are heading. If you are working on something, this is the best place to go to show case. Luckily many of the talks were live streamed so if you have some time, go watch a few!

China unveils working on a rocket that will land people on the moon by the early 2020s
Their announcement comes shortly after the US announced plans to fly two private citizens around the Moon by late 2018, under private aerospace company SpaceX.
China is working to develop a new spaceship that can both fly in low-Earth orbit and land on the moon.

NASA release the first images of the Trappist-1s planets
The Earth Like planet was discovered by the Kepler telescope as part of its K2 mission.


At the SXSW he announced for the masses that the singularity will take place in 2045 and human level intelligence will be reached by 2029. For people who's been diving into Ray Kurzweils material this is nothing new, but now it seems to have been picked up by the masses as its been all over the news. 
The Singularity happens when the Artificial Intelligence in machines surpass human intelligence.
He us super optimistic, and so am I :)

Sustainable Energy

We can officially collect solar energy without solar panels.
Science has now figured out a molecular "leaf" that can harvest sun power.
The molecular leaf is the most efficient method of carbon reduction to date.

Lab Grown Chicken by Memphis Meats, one of the many startups focusing on lab grown meat production. The firm's approach to what it calls “clean meat” is to culture animal cells in the lab, feed them nutrients until they grow into pieces large enough to cook and eat. Fried chicken might never be guilt-free. But you may soon be able to remove at least part of the remorse the next time you chow down, because it might not have required a single bird to be harmed.


Scientist are fully close to creating a fully human genome by the end of the year.
Prior to this announcement, the team had been able to completely synthesize one of yeast’s 16 chromosomes. And now they have discovered 5 more. They say they’re on track to finish the remaining ten chromosomes to form a completely synthetic genome by the end of this year.

“What if a cell’s DNA could be edited just like the text of a document so that you could actually erase letters, you could erase whole sentences, [you could] replace sentences, and you could do things that would enable scientists to change the mutations that might cause genetic disease, make changes that allow us to understand the function of DNA and different kinds of organisms and perhaps, enable us to really direct the way that organisms are evolving on the planet?”

It's now possible to detect cancer through a blood test.
It screens the DNA through dying blood cells which then detects tumor and where it is.

Nanotech gets smaller and smaller, so the nano boots get better and better. Swimming in your bloodstream and entering molecules and cells. Pretty amazing. Read a detailed article about it here.

An AI just completed 360 000 hours of finance work in seconds.
In June, JP Morgan Chase & Co, the biggest bank in US, started implementing a program called COIN, which is short for Contract Intelligence. COIN runs on a machine learning system that’s powered by a new private cloud network that the bank uses.
The Bank has more than 240 000 employees, some of those employees are lawyers and loan officers who spend a total of 360,000 hours each year. Now, the company has managed to cut the time spent on this work down to a matter of seconds using machine learning.

Here is the weekly sum-up video of this weeks happenings by Singularity Hub!

Week in Review - March 12

Hope this post will spark some great conversations! If you'd like more of the weekly goodies and news sign up for my weekly newsletter to get a good read!


Congress passes an act requiring NASA to get humans to Mars by 2033. With this transformative development, the space agency got a lot more than just $19.508 billion in funding. They also got a very clear mandate: Get humanity to Mars.


Humans can now scold a robot with their minds.
It's no longer only our body we can control with our thoughts but now also machines.
MIT developed a system to instantly tell a robot when it makes an error through brainwaves.


The Burger-Grilling Robot And Kitchen Assistant "FLIPPY" by Miso Robotics was introduced to us this week. CEO and co-founder David Zito says, 'We focus on using AI and automation to solve the high pain points in restaurants and food prep. That’s the dull, dirty and dangerous work around the grill, the fryer, and other prep work like chopping onions. The idea is to help restaurants improve food quality and safety without requiring a major kitchen redesign.'"

"The initial release, which WikiLeaks said was only the first installment in a larger collection of secret C.I.A. material, included 7,818 web pages with 943 attachments, many of them partly redacted by WikiLeaks editors to avoid disclosing the actual code for cyberweapons. The entire archive of C.I.A. material consists of several hundred million lines of computer code, the group claimed."

Future Society

The area of ownership is over. In the 20th century we got used to a certain way of thinking: if you needed something, you bought it. We are exponentially moving away from that, and that will be good for both us and the environment.

The Future Belongs To The Most Adaptable

"You Can't"
Ever been told that annoying statement? 
28 years and still hearing it in various forms and frases. "What do you mean I can't?"
"Keep your head down, follow the rules, do what you are told, play it safe, wait your turn, ask permission, learn to compromise"
This is terrible advice. After my opinion those are the words of the people who simply misunderstood what life is all about and how this world works. 
Sure, it has made a barrier to my own life but I must say with laughter that its just... pure tragedy. 
Imagine if all those people jumped in and started creating, making the world a huge playground. Oh what a magical world it would be?

YouTube Star Casey Neistat just made this genius video (below) pin pointing that we live in the days of "yes, you can". And that we don't have to stop ourselves by the words of the "no you can't sayers", which many of us has.
Ive been raised by grownups in fear of change, in fear of scarcity with a "do what you're told, do what the society says" kind of mindset. Not only has its been limiting my creative flow but with this collective thinking pattern its been a barrier for many!
Fortunately more and more people are breaking free from these imprisoning chains and set out to fly.
Those are the people who change the world, who's the openers to the sluice of the exponential craziness that are shaping our future in high speed. It blow all the nay sayers away. Literally.

As Casey explains in his own words:

"The haters, the doubters are all drinking champagne at the titanic, and we are the fucking iceberg"

The future belongs to the creators and innovators, the scientists and tech developers, the ones who wants to change the society to the better, cure human diseases and heal our earthly nature and make it better place. We are moving into an area now where its no longer survival of the fittest nor survival of the smartest. Its the survival of the most adaptable. The time of the adaptable has arrived and if your not willing to embrace what the exponential future behold you'll be wiped away pretty fast. It will be unpredictable, chaotic, crazy, creepy, far from understandable, and yes we will have no clue about what tomorrow will bring. 
If you won't manage to find your comfortable spot in this time, if you are not able to surf the wave with excitement, sadly you will be swallowed by the tsunami in not too long. Keep your eyes open, be curious, learn how to ride the waves. Join the party and have no expectations. Simply live, live in the moment, participate and enjoy. It will make your life easier and more fun.

I guess that perhaps when we cure aging, the people who are not born adaptable, and simply can't cope with living like this, will be the ones who's gonna have their death arranged or commit suicide. They are also the ones who will refuse to merge with machines.
And this is the way homo sapiens die out for good.

As Casey says in the video below, Do What You Can't.

Women, Shouldn't We Be Supportive Of Each Other?


How come its not the norm, women being supportive of each other?  That backing each other up is barely a thing? Why aren't we one big community proud of each other, worshiping each other, loving each other?

We share the same sex, of course that should not be the only reason to stand together, but we all know that we have huge challenges in this world. Why don't we stick together, speak up and take action for justice?

How did this happen to become reality? And why do we let it? Has it always been like this? Since the human race was created?

Its been bothering me for ages as long as I can remember Ive been an observer and victim of the evilness inhabiting some or many women. Thus we are raving for equal rights, yet we dont really do that much about it on a regular basis, a few might speak up every now and then in media.

 I, friends of mine and women all around the world face these subtle but hurtful attacks from other women everyday. I think a good word to describe it is through the word "frenemies". Perhaps you get a clearer picture of it by this word.

The worst are those who pretend to be supportive, shouting out their supportive words in social media always smiling and hugging, but then behind the curtains they do everything they can to pull the person down, talking behind their back and never lending out a helping hand, keeping things secret etc. 

This might be difficult to believe for some men I guess, as women are known for their emphatic and community feeling characteristics. But actually women look at each other as rivals. Feeling threatened by other women.

l think this is a result of insecurities and being afraid of not being liked by others? Fear is the underlying fact here, I guess. But how come fear can make people cruel? Why do we let ourself be controlled by fear, acting upon it? Why cant we just accept the fear and move on, why do we have to let it be in charge, do what it please? Because we dont know thats taking back control is an option? Because we dont learn how to become friends with our feelings in school? And because we have so much fear, this is because of low self-esteem? So then, how come so many girls and women suffer from low self-esteem? Where does this self-hatred come from? Are we simply born with it? Is it in our genes? Do we get it from our parents, the way they talk to us and behave towards us, dress us, address us? That we watch our mothers behave the same, talking bad about other women? TV? I wonder how it would be in a world where girls were raised the same way as boys. Talked to in the same ways, same clothes, same encouragement for doing and executing stuff etc?
Studies actually shows that girls are being raised different. Why does this happen? Why should we differentiate between girls and boys even immediately when they get out of the womb, or I mean, actually from the day the parents know the sex of their baby.

Well, one thing is for sure, women can't continue to step on other women. We cant have both men and women doing so. This way we, girls, will never get all the way up to the same level as all the brohs out there. Go ahead and support each other, ladies. All year around, not only 8th of March. Where is the sisterhood culture, similar to the broh culture we see in men being supportive of each other always?

Its a tragedy that this is not the normal standard amongst women. As you would think otherwise but its like women never fully understood that its place for everyone on the top. Not just one person. 

I have one wish for this female birthday, lets celebrate together the whole year, shall we? 

We are stronger together. 

If we dont lift each other up. Then who will? 

The Future To Come

“I’m blown away about how palpable the feeling exponential change have become. I'm also certain that 99,9 % of humanity doesn’t understand or appreciate the ramification of whats coming”

This was said by Peter Diamandis in his recent ebook about the Tech Trends of 2016 transforming the humanity.

And it hit my mind, oh man, is it really so? Is it so that 99,9 % do not know of or pay attention to what’s going on? 


Am I just living in my own little real bubble of what that’s happening, completely obsessed by the breakthroughs that's right around the corner?

I just realized that I am, cause I do not check in on the daily news which most people do, which fuels us with terrible events, depressing situations, negative words and hopelessness. All the exceptions, that’s what is being served to the masses. 

I’m on a quest to spread awareness and knowledge about what’s coming but I can help but wonder; how come people are not paying attention to the most exciting thing about being alive, growth, change and walking towards a better way of living, for us all?

You see, the future is so bright (sorry for this terrible joke but I just had to) we should all put on shades. Hah. Seriously, I'm about to explode from within of ecstacy because of this, and.. I can’t share it with anyone. Cause most of the people I meet in my daily life is apparently in the 99,9 % of humanity category. 

Why aren’t people thrilled about this? Don’t people want a higher living standard?
I know most people live in their own little ego-bubble. But this is even ego beneficial! It’s a complete upgrade, of our life, our friends' lives, our families and the people in Africa we don’t even know. It’s gonna improve the human race times 1 trillion + , and also, our holy mother earth is gonna reach heaven.

I’m not being optimistic, I’m talking facts here. If you don’t believe me I really hope that we will cure aging (reverse the illness of cells dying) before you die so that you might be able to stay alive until the times of the complete exponential turnaround. It’s gonna blow your brains out. You won’t even be able to grasp what's going on. That’s only someone as smart as an super AI who can. A Cyborg, a transhumanist. I’m not even sure we will reach that level of intelligence or awareness ever, regardless we are in for a hell of a ride. 

I swear. It's wild.

Don’t believe me?

Dig into Michio Kaku, Ray Kurzweil, Peter Diamandis among others and MIT Technology ReviewFuturism, Singularity Hub and Big Think for some updates to level up your comprehension. We are just scratching the surface of what yet to come, not even that.

Just have a look at this awesomeness


Why There Is No Such Thing As Writer's Block

Get over yourself.

Ever experienced finding yourself frustrated while staring at a blank page?
At an exam perhaps, or test in school where you're just completely empty within, and the adrenaline is pumping through your veins and you can't help but going all nuts?

This is not uncommon, in fact, lots of famous writers claim to have experienced writer's block and the web is flooded with articles on how to deal with it.

By definition writer’s block is described as the following

"Writer's block is a condition, primarily associated with writing, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work, or experiences a creative slowdown."

However, according to a Niel strauss, who's a trained journalist and writer of seven books, there is no such thing as writer's block.

Well, that's a bit odd, isn't it? Mainly since most of us can recall accessing this state of mind?

You know what, I think it's brilliantly put. I can relate to his words. You see, once I had a complete black out on a math test at the age of 15. It was so horrible that I made myself a promise to never ever enter that state again.
And guess what? I haven’t experienced it since. And I tell you, I write every day. With ease. 

His full statement goes like this:

No it's not. It's your EGO talking so loud that you can't hear them.

“there is no such thing as writers block, it’s performance anxiety which you have been imposed at yourself because your expectations are too high” 

It couldn’t be phrased any better, if you ask me.

Basically what happens is that the ego interferes with the natural source of flow from within. 
It uses stress to distract you from touching it, basically cut short; it’s the fear of failure that’s hunting you down.
Ego, the perfectionist, screams with a never ending discontent making you unable to produce anything. Just typing one word, or letter can be impossible.

Here is how Malcolm Gladwell deals with writers block.

“I deal with writer’s block by lowering my expectations. I think the trouble starts when you sit down to write and imagine that you will achieve something magical and magnificent—and when you don’t, panic sets in. The solution is never to sit down and imagine that you will achieve something magical and magnificent. I write a little bit, almost every day, and if it results in two or three or (on a good day) four good paragraphs, I consider myself a lucky man. Never try to be the hare. All hail the tortoise.”

Lower your standards and you’ll never have such problem again. Trust yourself. Leave the conscious I and you’ll become the vessel of the cosmic. 

Next time you find yourself with a block, start free-writing or just write something, find some questions to answer, anything that have you use your fingers creating words. And do so without looking on passed sentences. Write blind folded, use no time to edit. It might be rubbish, but at least it will get you going. Perhaps you’ll find some useful sentences or paragraphs in there. Of that I’m sure. If not.. You’ll never be able to be a good and happy writer, I guess. Of course you should also consider if talking a walk or have a break if you’ve been glazing at your screen for hours is what really is needed.

Simply put, leave your ego at the door while you sit down and start typing.

Ha ha. This bad joke made me smile.

When Was The Last Time You Put Yourself In Someone Else's Shoes?

We all know how good it feels to be acknowledged for our emotions and inner thoughts. Being cared for when we are down, sharing the joy when something magical happens. Simply being understood and able to share experiences is of such value. We are all longing to be seen and recognized as human beings, at any moment of the day. We want to know that we are not alone and that we are of worth. We are social animals and we need to at least believe we are part of a larger group to have a life of purpose and meaning.

Empathy is key in order for the world to be a better place for us all.  Perhaps you should ask someone how they feel today, and fully listen with your whole record of comprehension? I'm sure someone would highly appreciate that.

I wish at least this video below would be mandatory for us all to watch.
