Le tecnologie e la società sono destinate a incontrarsi, a ibridarsi e connettersi fra di loro sempre di più. Si prenda come esempio la blockchain, prima limitata all’universo delle criptovalute, ora in rapida diffusione in diversi ambiti quali quelli del gaming, della logistica aziendale, dell’agricoltura e persino dell’arte.
Gli Nft, i non-fungible token che certificano in modo immodificabile sulla catena di blocchi l’unicità di un determinato prodotto, hanno invaso il mondo delle opere artistiche, giungendo a contaminare anche Brescia. Valeriya Georgieva, 35enne di origine bulgara ma nel territorio bresciano per amore, grazie agli Nft è riuscita a conciliare due delle sue passioni, quella per la tecnologia e per quella per il disegno.
Young enthusiasts with lots of experience in the digital space who do strongly believe in the “cypherpunks write code” motto have opened the first hacker-space in Italy.
hack.bs is a non-profit cypherpunk hacker-space located in the heart of the city. The mission of the club is to provide a space where people can meet and learn about Bitcoin, technology, open-source, privacy and freedom, and connect with other like-minded individuals. This is simply a space for hackers that is explicitly designed by hackers.
Regular workshops, meet-ups, hackathons designed and opened to everybody are only some of the main objectives and the “to-do” list of the organisers and the founding members.
The hacker-space is being funded through voluntary contributions from individuals and private companies. If any of our readers are willing to support the project, you can also make a donation.

The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) has been a source of both fascination and trepidation for the collective human psyche. As we witness the dawning of the ‘Age of AI’, it has become increasingly clear that these technological marvels stir deep-seated fears, echoing archaic patterns within our collective unconscious. This article aims to explore these fears from a Jungian perspective and suggest potential pathways for managing and overcoming them.
The Archetype of the ‘Unknown’
At the heart of our fear of AI lies the archetypal image of the ‘unknown’. According to my theory, the ‘unknown’ is a symbol that has been deeply imprinted on the collective unconscious of humanity, stemming from our ancestors’ primal fear of the mysterious and the unexplored. AI, as a relatively new and rapidly evolving field, embodies this archetype, representing a vast, uncharted territory. This could explain our collective anxiety and fear: we are venturing into a realm that is largely unknown to us, and that carries with it a sense of the unpredictable and uncontrollable.
Ego inflation, a concept that has been gaining considerable attention in corporate culture, refers to the expansion of an individual's sense of self-worth beyond a healthy level. It is often characterized by overconfidence, arrogance, and a constant need to assert dominance. This behavior is not only damaging to an individual's interpersonal relationships but can also create a toxic work environment that hinders productivity, innovation, and employee well-being.
The concept of ego has long been debated among psychologists, philosophers, and scientists. In the competitive corporate environment, the role of ego in business leaders and executives is a topic of particular interest. This article will discuss the nature of ego, its connection to consciousness, and the impact it can have on leadership and management. It will also explore the challenges that leaders face in managing their egos and propose practical solutions to help them achieve optimal performance.
The journey to becoming an exceptional leader is an ongoing process of self-discovery, growth, and transformation. By cultivating a gardener’s mindset, embracing adaptability, harnessing inclusive innovation, elevating empathy, and fostering mindful resilience, leaders can unlock their full potential and guide their organizations toward lasting success. As you venture forth on this journey, remember that leadership excellence is not a destination but an ever-evolving pursuit of growth and learning.
Yesterday, a consortium of Web3 companies announced officially the 20th of September for The NFT Day. From now on this is going to be an annual moment for the Web3 community to collectively teach people about the value of blockchain-based experiences.
On this date in 2017, the primary protocol behind NFTs – ERC-721 – was originally published by Dapper Labs CTO Dieter Shirley alongside the first use of the term “Non-Fungible Token.” Since that time, the technology has grown into an $11.3 billion industry.
As we are always keeping our readers up to date with the latest trends, we shall not miss one of the recent creations of the Art-addicted crypto-communities.
The Fashion industry is getting more and more interconnected with technology.
So it’s no surprise that the latest digital fashion event, which is already a week is taking place in London, was hosted by Meta, arguably one of the leading forces guiding the metaverse and all the attention it receives. And while the event was founded on the marriage of fashion and tech, it was far more focused on celebrating the LGBTQ creative community.
One of the greatest names was Jens Laugesen, the creative mind of the award-winning eponymous brand and founder of holistic/design/luxury/tech advisory collective Konsens X, together with an international collective of talented digital artists, Virtual Touch digital lab team in Hong Kong and supported by the Danish Arts Foundation, presented the META\SENS digital collaboration project.
After discovering the technology and its application which honestly is so dynamic that tomorrow I can be writing about something completely different in that connection, my focus now is on fashion and NFTs. I am so excited about this technology due to the fact that while exploring it, I have started creating digital designs and art. It’s true that I have always been passionate about design, matching styles, colors, outlooks, and appearances but now more than ever it looks like I can call all these things in one word and namely — ART.
Thinking about all the Avatars in virtual worlds that need a variety of clothing items to stand out, and knowing that NFTs can provide scarce and unique wearables that all users would love buying. Fashion brands are already interested in using NFTs and the metaverse to showcase, sell and archive their precious products. Many passionate and experienced professionals in the industry already believe that exactly fashion is the next big thing for NFTs.
As the industry officially begins to recognize the power of digital and its immeasurable impact on the future of the market, The Cryptonomist is monitoring closely everything that is happening and how the fashion brands are not only embracing the technology but are firmly stating and believing that Web3 is here to stay.
