Geek Estate Labs is Open for Business

When people ask what I do, I generally say “real estate technology consulting.” However, if you consider real estate tech to be anything that relates to buying, selling, renting, or home ownership…well, that could mean virtually anything. The new Geek Estate Labs landing page is meant to provide more clarity on how we serve startups and enterprises. Most of our services fall into two buckets: Content strategy and copywriting, for clients such as CREtech, Fifth Wall, CityBldr, and Remarkably. A ...

Single Review: Madonna’s ‘Medellin’

While a song that begins with a cha-cha count-in and the lyric “I took a pill” sounds like it should be a dancefloor rager, it’s actually the unexpectedly low-key return of Madonna, who today dropped “Medellin,” the first single from her forthcoming album “Madame X.” A collaboration with Colombian singer Maluma — himself a native […]

Venezuela is losing a generation of tech talent to its humanitarian crisis

The escalating crisis in Venezuela has seen sky-high hyperinflation, widespread hunger and a large-scale exodus out of the country. The desperate circumstances have led to more than three million Venezuelans leaving the country for a better life. According to recent numbers published by the UN , Latin American countries have doled out around 1.3 million residence permits and other state authorisations to Venezuelans in need. The impact on the country has been generational and this effect i...

My 8 Favorite Hostels in Medellín in 2019

Posted: 3/19/2019 | March 19th, 2019 There are a lot of hostels in Medellín. As “gringo central” for Colombia, you can’t walk five feet without coming across one, with majority located in El Pablado (Gringoland) and Laureles (up-and-coming Gringoland). In fact, if you look on Hostelworld, you’ll find 93 hostels in this city. That’s a lot of hostels. I spent close to three weeks in Medellín: first for an extended time over the holidays and then again as I made my way from north to south. Like I...

Solo Female Travel in Colombia — Is It Safe?

Is it safe for a woman to travel alone in Colombia? I wanted to find out for myself. One of the main reasons why I traveled to Colombia alone was to report for you, dear readers, on what it was like to experience the country as a solo female traveler. I visited Colombia for just under three weeks and explored Cartagena, Medellín, Guatapé, El Peñol, Salento, the Valle de Cocora, Bogotá, and Zipaquirá. In a single trip I hit up most of the major tourist destinations in the country.

What Does Globalization Really Destroy?

Posted: 2/25/2019 | February 25th, 2019 While walking down the streets of Medellín, I came across a Dunkin’ Donuts, a donut chain from my hometown of Boston. (It’s the best. Locals are quite attached to Dunkin. Don’t mess with a Massachusetts resident and Dunkin.) As I looked at the store, a pit formed in my stomach and I got quiet and melancholy. For days, I had been coming across Starbucks, McDonald’s, KFC, Papa John’s, and now, Dunkin’ Donuts! Medellín had been overrun by the chains. Anot...

There’s more to Colombia than drug trafficking and violence

Colombia (MNN) -- On Friday , officials bulldozed a mansion belonging to the man who put Colombia on the map for drug trafficking: Pablo Escobar. It’s part of an ongoing effort to “clean up” the reputation of Medellin, Colombia’s second-largest city and Escobar’s base of operations. A mug shot of Pablo Escobar taken by the regional Colombia control agency in Medellín in 1977.(Photo and caption obtained from Wikimedia Commons) Encyclopedia Britannica describes Escobar as "the son of a fa...

The Dark Side of Travel: What You Should Know About Drug Tourism

“In the U.S. you have to be a deviant or die of boredom.” William S. Burroughs said that. He’s among the most famous American drug tourists. A trendsetter. He would routinely go to Tangier, a city in Morroco known for the availability of drugs, and get high and write. Now drug tourism is a thriving industry in its own right. Loads of young Westerners and addicts with varying circumstances are traveling all over the world to places where drug laws are lax, more drugs are available, or different d...

Where to travel by zodiac sign

Maybe you think astrology is stupid. Maybe you think it’s a bunch of hippie-dippy junk science people use to excuse bad behavior. “Well you should have known I was going to was going to cheat on you, Janet. I’m a Scorpio!” Ok, well put that aside for a second. Because if you buy into astrology — if only for the time it takes to read your horoscope — it can be pretty entertaining. And sometimes, surprisingly accurate. Besides, even if you’re not into astrology, there’s a good chance someone yo...
