More than one year ago I bought feature phone with KaiOS on board for digital detox purpose. You can read about my experience here:
Insofar as I started to use my Nokia 8110 as my main phone I started to get more information about this OS and KaiOS company in general.
Did you know, over four billion people have no internet access? Why? Smartphones are expensive. Data plans cost too much. Touchscreen devices and apps are often intimidating to first-time internet users
KaiOS mission is:
Advance digital inclusion and close the digital divide
How can I help? Insofar as I’m a developer, I can build apps at least 🙂
A few days ago my first two game apps were released!
I’m going to tell about my building apps experience on geekspace.info web site.
What emotions did I feel reading this book? Mostly I was angry. I always screamed “Vincent, what the hell are you doing?”. Sometimes I tried to stop him by words “Don’t do that, please”. But he didn’t hear my voice, because everything has already been done a long time ago. And all those stuff led to what we have in art industry now
Am I impressed? Yes. Do I recommend this book? Totally. But personally I strongly don’t recommend watch “At Eternity’s Gate”
Thank you to my friend for recommendation and lending this book for me!
I’m not 100% zero waste guy at all but I try my best and do baby steps. Recently I got a package from China with reusable eco friendly shopping drawstring bag. Nowadays I go to market with drawstring bag and use this one for fruits and vegetables instead of plastic bags. Of course I need more because we have to weigh fruits and vegetables separately and stick label with price to bags. There are a lot of things to strive for
Cycling Tour of World Class Almaty – competition for amateur cyclists, but on a professional level. The Tour of World Class Almaty bicycle race is a great event for cycling enthusiasts. This year it will be held for the sixth time and will gather about 850 athletes.
A few months ago I sent application for participation in cycling “Tour of World Class Almaty” and started to prepare for that event. I rode 34 km on my lovely stels MTB bike in the most brilliant mountain city. It was very hard but I crossed the finish line. I’m so happy to be part of that amazing event and want to say thank you to all people who supported me!
Let’s talk about minimalism a little bit. Huge amount of people think, minimalism is some kind of lifestyle where people live in a small flat, have a few staff, no career, no money and can’t have any children at all. Naturally it’s a misconception. So, all of those points of view have nothing in common with minimalism. Minimalism is lifestyle when people focus on essential things which can bring value in their life. Minimalists try to tidy up not only flat, but also their life. I understood that personally I’m not 100% minimalist at all, but I try my best and for me it’s much better taking baby steps than give yourself without a trace.
More than 10 years ago when we shared media content through usb flash
cards I got a short video where local guys vaulting over obstacles in
city’s town. “What is it?” I asked? “How does it call?”. I was so
impressed but nobody wasn’t shared my joy and actually It didn’t matter
for me at that time I just started. It calls “Parkour” and I was a
After some times I and my friends Viktor and Pavel created a team “Free Tracers” and we did a parkour more than 3 years. We were like a family and I learned a lot of things which help me nowadays.
– Overcome obstacles. It doesn’t matter what kind of obstacles they
are, actually it can be mental one. You must try to achieve your finish
line sometimes even you feel pain and complexity. Your team helps you in
– Unity. When a member of your team learn
something new, you always have to support him or her and try to help.
Member’s joy is happy for whole team
My parkour journey is a huge part of my life and I become very happy person when remember those days.
I’m really interested in work life balance topic. Nowadays I try to
make ideal day balanced between difference sides of my life. Maybe in
future I’ll write a book and you’ll read my conclusions about that will
Once I watched TED talk conference where Nigel Marsh said a brilliant
phrase: “We work long, hard hours to enable our self to buy things we
don’t need to impress people we don’t like”. Read this conversation
again more properly. I’m totally agree with Marsh and I think it’s a huge problem of our society.
Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus from theminimalists.com said: “Collect moments, not things”. It’s my the most favorite quote. Collect moments guys, not things because the opposite never works!
If anything that can happened will happened. Last summer I hiked from Lower Kolsay Lake to Middle Kolsay Lake. The distance was about five kilometres upstream from the lower lake. In thick forest I met my hometown friend Sergey from himalaya.kz. It seems to be impossible but happened
How many job positions did you have? What was the first one? What the
best time to start earn money? Before I started to work as a software
engineer I had quite huge experience in many difference spheres
I started to earn pocket money since childhood selling movies to my acquaintances because I liked films very much.
In college time I started to work in local mall as shop assistant. Guess what I had to promote? It was diapers 😀 Yes, that’s right, it was very funny and I had a blue uniform. Everyone in those shop calls me “huggies” 🙂
Also I gave chocolates in early spring on the street at university
areas because we promoted one delicious brand! Those time was very sweet
but hard because hungry students 😛 Yep, I had an uniform too and it was purple! Guess what chocolate it was?
Next one was not really interesting for me, because we had to delivered
advertisement envelopes to houses in early weekend mornings. I’m sure
if I rang your apartment’s doorbell in sleep time, you probably will be
About half a year before and after college education lessons I promoted newspapers in city’s town.
Once I just had to scan documents
Actually I worked as a photographer on different events.
Make a long story short every job positions bring to me a huge life
experience and I very glad to try all of that staff because… because
it was happy time and I understood what money is and how I can keep and
