Hello, I’m Nicholas, a seasoned technology researcher. I love traveling, especially using Couchsurfing.

I’ve worked or collaborated on projects from all continents across the globe. North America (The US and Canada), Africa, Europe, Asia, South America, the Middle East, and Australia. I’ve led more than 450 research and writing projects for over 100 businesses.

My work cuts across industries and markets. I’ve worked with startups, mid-size companies, and corporations; including Fortune 500 companies.

I’ve been on research and writing teams for the likes of

  • Microsoft,
  • Bloomberg BETA,
  • McKinsey & Co.,
  • Boston Consulting,
  • Accenture,
  • HP,

My research and writing cover both famous and little-known technology and business topics. I regularly write and conduct business research on topics like

  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT),
  • Augmented, mixed and virtual realities,
  • Big data,
  • Machine learning,
  • Artificial intelligence,

  • Intelligent robots,
  • Modular mobile technologies,
  • Marketing automation,
  • Workflow and HR management technologies,

And many more.

I’m fascinated – maybe a little obsessed – with technology. But I’m not blind to its side effects.

Yes, I know that UBC and the University of Virginia researchers say that you and I, and everyone else behaves like ADHD patients around smartphones these days. And they’re probably not wrong!

In fact, India Times says ADHD-like symptoms can be traced to smartphone usage in itself!

Smartphone users and ADHD patients share symptoms like easily feeling bored when trying to do work that requires some level of focus, or experiencing difficulty in carrying out quiet activities or tasks.

Another independent survey confirms what the researchers are saying,

  • 95 percent of respondents have used their smartphones during social events
  • 70 percent used their phones while working
  • 10 percent even admitted to checking their phones during sex.

Social psychologist, Kostadin Kushlev, says that smartphone users spend as much as 2 hours daily using their phones, in his words,

“We found the first experimental evidence that smartphone interruptions can cause greater inattention and hyperactivity — symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder — even in people drawn from a nonclinical population.”

In short, you have a smartphones-addicted audience who wouldn’t pay attention to your message.

Microsoft says that our attention span has fallen from 12 seconds to less than that’s of a goldfish. Eight seconds! A goldfish’s attention span is nine seconds.

How do you turn 8 seconds of attention into something worthwhile?

That’s my job!
