This post was originally published on fnBlog.

A few weeks ago we had our annual share of tech predictions and a common trend was the inclusion of companies such as Airbnb, Getaround, and Uber. What I love about these companies … Read More

Cheers to a strong Portuguese community in Silicon Valley

November 17, 2011 |

The President of Portugal was in California last Sunday and Monday and that was big news. For most people it was big news because the last time a President visited California was 20 years ago. To me it was big … Read More

Math 101 for Politicians

October 19, 2011 | 1

This week the Portuguese government presented the budget for 2012 and I was surprised (not to say shocked) with some of the measures approved. Granted that Portugal is under siege, with the IMF and the European Union demanding hefty budget … Read More

The Amazon Threat is Real

September 30, 2011 |

I’ve been on a plane and offline for the last 16h and as a result I missed the reactions to Amazon’s mega announcement of the $199 Fire plus a $79 e-reader. However, I know there is an obvious question everyone … Read More

The relentless small innovation that changed our lives

August 15, 2011 |

Entrepreneurs get often a lot of crap for not being innovative enough. It goes like “I don’t want to hear about another mobile application, I want real radical innovation”, and then they go on a rant about how entrepreneurs used … Read More

C**kblockers and my lemonade stand

August 9, 2011 |

Every time I try to register a domain name I come across the same problem – dozens and dozens of domain names that are taken with no apparent purpose other than blocking other people from getting them and maybe make … Read More

Post of a Death Foretold (perdon GGM!) – Apple and the doomed walled garden

July 27, 2011 |

Another post, another prediction, another take on a tech giant. It’s possible that in a few years when I revisit this I’m going to think it was the stupidest thing I’ve ever said, like when in 2000 I predicted that … Read More

Google+ blurry use case and why I think G+ can’t succeed in its current form

July 19, 2011 |

You got to give Google credit for sparking an intense debate about the state of social networks, and boy is it interesting! If you haven’t followed the discussion, please check at the end of this post a quick summary of … Read More

The hard dynamics of co-foundership and a few things you should know about it

July 18, 2011 |

A lot has been said recently about how you should go about finding a co-founder, and more specifically a technical co-founder. I think the idea of “earning a co-founder” is good as it is the very structured process of co-founder … Read More

When you pivot too much, you’ll often be back to the start position

July 11, 2011 |

An entrepreneur has to be adaptable. When you’re building a new product for a market that often doesn’t exist, it’s hard to have a clear path to the end goal. It’s part of the game – you try an idea, … Read More

A good idea!

July 1, 2011 |

I’m going to take a break from being a bitter motherfu**er who criticizes everything to actually complement an idea I recently heard about. Disclaimer: I was not asked to promote this nor do I have any sort of participation on … Read More

Role Models

June 27, 2011 |

I recently heard someone ask, “Why aren’t there more African American (AA) founders?” I’m no expert in US entrepreneurship history so I listened to the different arguments brought to the table and the most compelling one hit close to home … Read More
