Why, just why?

At LETO we work with large startups and, more often enterprises – creating and launching digital products to solve their business problems. Most people in the startup world despise, or even hate corporations. In a way, that seems a bit odd – if you dislike big companies so much, why are you trying to build […]

Final 8 weeks: Waiting area & Going home!

This is it. I have finally got my visa. The folks at TechCity UK have been kind enough to approve me as someone with Exceptional Talent. I’m sure they didn’t mean any pressure, but I will try fucking hard to live up to it. After all, that’s what I’ve been waiting for all this time. […]

Week 7 to 12: Nomading. Applying for my visa

Damn, I haven’t blogged in ages, but I’m not good at that – and I warned you, right?

It’s quite amazing how bad the Internet situation actually is in East London. There are two options – get fiber / antenna or get a crap DSL […]

Week 1

Yeah that’s a boring title. See, I’ve got almost no blogging skills, so I’ve just put a date for the title. That’ll do. Last week was pretty busy. We’ve got lots of projects going on in the office, so I chipped in and spent lots of time coding and getting my hand dirty in all […]

CEO in exile

I screwed up. Well, there’s no other way to put it. I got lost in the maze that is the UK immigration system. I won’t go into details or what I think about the system. Or how fucked up it is. I mean, seriously, it’s like some of the rules are written by a bunch […]

The most precious resource we all have is time. Countdown tells you how much you have left.

Time is both the least appreciated and the most valuable resource we all have. Yet, most of the time people underestimate the value of their time and the simple fact that no matter how hard they try, it’s almost impossible to add much more to their “time bank account” The story If there’s one thing […]
