About Socrates

Did you ever wish that you could quit your job and start doing what you love to do all the time and every day? Do you love learning? Do you wish that every day you could learn something new, interesting, meaningful and fun?

Well, this is more or less what Socrates of Athens did more than 2, 000 years ago.

This is also what this modern day Socrates decided to do when starting www.SingularitySymposium.com and www.SingularityWEBLOG.com

I finished my MA degree, stopped sending out resumes and decided to focus on learning the tools a contemporary Socrates could use to follow his calling: web design and blogging.

I am Nikola and this blog documents my journey to discover who I am as a being, who we are as a species and most of all how does technology change the meaning of both the above questions and answers.

So who am I? Here is a brief bio:

Nikola Danaylov at Vatican City with Homer’s marble bust

Philosopher, singularitarian, infopreneur and a fellow party animal Nikola Danaylov was born in Bulgaria.

In 1998 Nikola moved to Canada where he completed an HBA in Political Science, Philosophy and Economics at the University of Toronto plus an MA in Political Science at York University.

It was at York University that Nikola got deeply interested in the Technological Singularity and wrote a research paper titled “Hacking Destiny: Critical Security at the Intersection of Human and Machine Intelligence.”

Presently Nikola resides in Toronto, Canada with his beloved wife Julie.
