Inspiration behind Mixster

“There was an idea. Vipul knows this, called the Mixster Author initiative. The idea was to bring together a group of of remarkable people to see if they could become something more. To see if they could collaborate when Mixster needed them to, to write content that we I alone never could.”

I thought remote would be easy. I thought it will be comfortable, creative and carefree. I thought I would be so efficient that I be in the zone all the time. Oh my sweet summer child, only if I knew before how wrong I was. And the best part being that I love the concept even more.

My week with Mozfest & Sustain #2018 #London

Legit off the hook.

Henceforth, this post won’t be a regular “My Awesome Experience blog” of a conference that you won’t bother reading. But, I rather feel obligated to discuss the people, the works, and the city that was behind Mozfest 2018 and Sustain Summit 2018 that one should really focus on. Let’s jump in.
