I have titled the ninth compilation for Crypto Hipster’s Chronicles, Episode 9, “Knowledge is Power”, and that episode I have now converted into this book with the same title.
The Knowledge Society is a 10-month global innovation program for ambitious high school students. Students aged between thirteen and seventeen years of age and apply and interview before joining and attending weekly sessions. The Knowledge Society (TKS) is the next generation of innovators, scientists and entrepreneurs who want to solve the world’s biggest problems. During January 2021, I conducted a four-interview series with the TKS founder and three graduates/students of the program. TKS was developed with CEOs and global leaders and is designed to replicate the learning culture of Silicon Valley.
This eleventh book in the Crypto Hipster series, entitled Knowledge is Power focuses on four Crypto Hipster podcasts. Navid Nathoo, the founder of TKS, discusses how TKS creates global social and economic reform by working on some of the world’s most pressing problems. Samantha Ouyang, a 17-year-old TKS Activator shares how she uses blockchain technology in her projects to achieve global social impact. Eason Wu, sixteen-year-old founder of Padawan DAO, shares how he balances solving economically incentivized problems with social impact challenges. And, Adam Majmudar, TKS graduate and founding member of ThirdWeb, shares his insights about the roles of Existentialism, Nihilism, and Nondualism in emerging technologies, blockchain and quantum computing.
