Eyes wide open yet not seeing.
I too have quietly encountered those who still resist change, those who will proudly say how they don’t need technology and carry on behaving as if the 1960′s were frozen in permanent motion, how with eyes wide shut they are as dependent on today’s technology as I am.
Eyes wide shut and the world spins onwards.
Technology is beyond what lies in one’s immediate vision. Technology wraps itself around me, my words blinking on an empty sheet, flickering, while digital delights draw me closer, seducing me with the quiet assurance that there is more to life than living with eyes wide shut.
Seduction becomes disruption.
Disruption, a way of life.
My next guest embraces disruption with managerial flair and a passion for education. Eyes wide open.
Kostas Vasiliou was born and grew up in Greece. Kostas studied Electronic Engineering and Management at the Technological Educational Institute of Thessaloniki and the University of Athens respectively.
10 years ago he joined a small Greek software house with 30 employees and served this company from several managerial positions helping it to grow to a company with over 100 employees and a turnover of over €8Μ. It was this experience that provided him with the vital knowledge of how to grow a startup company.
With a great passion for knowledge and learning, always seeking for new challenges, he co-founded schooX 2 years ago. SchooX, is a startup dealing with online learning and knowledge management. The Vision of the team is to change the way people get educated and disrupt the market of education.
Join me here as Kostas explains what exactly schooX is, how technology is disrupting educational structures and shares a vision for 2012.
