I’ve spoken to a few friends who work in tech. Lately, all of us are working from home. I usually ask them “How do you feel to work from home nowadays?”, and I found a pattern in their answers. Many of them said the exact words “I never wanna go to an office again”.
List of drugs that I have used recreationally, most of them only once or twice during my youth, as a tool of mind expansion:
- MDMA Crystals
- Magic Mushrooms
- Magic Truffles
- Nitrous Oxide
- Alkyl Nitrites
“There are many things you can accomplish, many thoughts you can have, that are only possible during long stretches of solitary time. You may even wish, at times, to be painfully alone – longing for social contact. Sometimes this is a period of maximal productivity.” Patrick McGillivray
In 2013 I was featured on Pando for an interview about Wordo.
“It’s not often that someone starts an interview with me by insulting PandoDaily, but that’s exactly what Amin Eftegarie did when I asked him how he came up with his startup idea.”
Today Chi and I launched Wordo. Wordo is the clean dictionary. It’s made within 3 hours. It gives you definitions of English words, that’s all it does at this moment. But gosh, it’s so refreshing compared to what some of the other guys are doing. For example, check the definition for a random word Detail and compare them yourself:
- The ‘Free’ Dictionary (Free my ass, you pay by looking at their ads)
- Merriam Webster(This fellow loads and autoplays a quizzvideo)
- Dictionary.com: (Multiple flash ads, autoplays video, ad free for $35/year)
Compared to the biggest and most used online dictionaries, Wordo is the clutter-free alternative. If anything, we removed too much, and if that’s the case we will gladly add things others find useful (synonyms, related words, other languages etc).
