Kungliga familjen – Ett familjeföretag

Nu har jag sett ännu ett svenska rojalistiskt bröllop. Denna gången mellan Prins Carl Philip och Prinsessan Sofia. Jag tycker forfarande att Sverige som monarki fungerar idag 2015. Uppdraget som dom utför är tufft och väldigt bra för Sverige som nationalstat. Om nationalstaten i framtiden helt spelar ut sin roll kommer dom flesta kungshus också ha gjort det. Tills dess finns det ingen anledning att ta bort arvsrätten att födas in i ett familjeföretag.

Starta din egen kungafamilj

Man kan se den svenska kungliga familjen som ett familjeföretag som har som uppdrag av staten att marknadsföra Sverige som turistland. Dom drar in miljarder till Sverige och är en mycket bra investering. Är detta rättvist att man bara kan födas in i detta familjeföretag? För det första går det också att gifta in sig i denna familjen, precis som vilken annan ansedd familj i Sverige.

Om du själv skulle vilja starta upp ett familjeföretag och vinna anseende världen över, i ett par generationer. Då kanske det skulle vara möjligt att konkurrera ut kungafamiljen som Sveriges mest folkkära familj och ta över uppdraget. Eller en blodig kupp kanske faller dig mer i smaken?

Alla är fortfarande välkomna att spela tronspelet [Game Of Thrones] om man vill 🙂

En kungafamilj som startup…

15 Years In The Matrix

Red Or Blue Pill?

It’s now 15 years ago that I first took the “Red Pill“. It was the spring in 1999. A friend of mine had gotten us tickets to a pre-show of a movie that looked really cool. The event was hosted by Maya, the 3D rendering program that was used to make some of the effects in the movie. We went to Grand on Sveavägen in Stockholm with 200 other nerds who thought this was going to be something extra. And boy was we right. This was for me the most accelerating experience in my life. I remember coming out of the theatre so exited that I jumped over every bench, wall and bush I could find. After collecting my thoughts half an hour later I called my geek brother. Then I told him. That he was going to have to wait for months for the real Swedish premier of the coolest movie ever made… The Matrix.


Red Or Blue?

Later that summer we of course went to get tickets to the real Swedish premier. We went for the biggest and best theatre in Stockholm, Sergel 1. On the opening show when we entered the theatre we where all handed a little plastic bag with a red and a blue pill. The 3 of us, who hade seen it before immediately went bonkers of excitement again. We where some of the few people there who already knew what the pills represented 🙂

This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes. – Morpheus

Before the movie was about to start the head of Warner Brother Sweden stepped up on the stage to tell us we where about to witness the coolest movie premiere of all time and to honor that they started throwing out T-Shirts and Sunhats into the audience. Sadly I got none. It didn’t matter. Prior to the event I had entered every promo competition for the film I could find and had already won both a T-Shirt and some Matrix branded sunglasses. Mind blown. Again.

What is real? How do you define ‘real’? If you’re talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then ‘real’ is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain. – Morpheus

Later I went to see it 2 more times that summer just to completely get into this new future. Finally there would be lots of cool movies. How could it not? How wrong I was…

I also have to mention that by that time I was already deep into Cyber-Philosophy. My favourite movie before this one was of course Ghost in the Shell that I had probably seen 20 times already by that time. I have read the comic and was completely in love with this philosophical cyber genre. My first official party I hosted as head of my party-section [Sexmästare] when I studied was a Cyber Party heavily inspired by Ghost in the Shell and Billy Idol’s Cyber Punk album. I even called my self Mikee Boy – CyberDemon of Joy then.

Dream Reality Party of 1999

Back to 1999. My brother was turning 25 and was coming up to Stockholm to have his party. I was hosting so I turned it into a heavily Matrix inspired party with live roleplaying called the Dream Party. A party where everyone had to come dressed as their cool Residual Self Image. So I had to go out and buy some cool sunglasses and get a cool haircut. The party was a blast. So from that day on I have now had this Residual Self Image of mine. It’s my Matrix Haircut. If you want to more about it you can listen to the podcast in Swedish: Gott Prat.

The Matrix Brothers

The Matrix Brothers

Later the fall I bought my first DVD player, Home theatre system and of course The Matrix on DVD. With it and Fight Club as my only first movies we continued to remind ourself what is really “real” and important in life.

The Dream World

The Matrix resonates with me on so many levels. I remember when was about 15. We used to stay up all night playing boardgames & roleplaying games. Afterwards we used to go outside and talk about games and other philosophical things for hours in the middle of the night just before going home. The neighbours weren’t so happy with us with our loud, long conversations. One occurring conversation was that there was no way of telling if we all lived inside a big collective dream. The Dream World.

Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world? – Morpheus

As I and many others now know more about the brain, it’s not far from the truth. What The Matrix opened our eyes in such a wide manner to. That we are responsible for our own experience of reality. The brain is literally a storytelling machine. It’s a pattern recognition machine that is so good that it can recognise it’s own thinking patterns. This consciousness became very useful for us. It’s an exceptional system for simulation of events. Past, present and future. It allowed us to become very effective at collaborating. Both our internal and shared stories made us into this amazing mammal we are today that has managed travel across 384,400 km of empty space to the moon and back. And we are just at the beginning of this epic tale of our story in the universe.

Your brain and all your sensory system are handling a staggering amount of data every second. Your conscious self take a very, very small part of this data and put together a thing that acts like a “Reality Feed”. Your story about you. Your own personal Matrix of the world around you. Now don’t be alarmed. You are still you, the whole you. Still in control of your thoughts, feelings and actions. You simply has an amazing way of experience the myriad och data and decisions that make up you. Without you going completely mad and bonkers on the way.

Morpheus: How did I beat you?
Neo: You… you’re too fast.
Morpheus: Do you believe that my being stronger or faster has anything to do with my muscles in this place? Do you think that’s air you’re breathing now?

Red or Blue?

Red or Blue?

We can’t fathom the difference of being real-real or dream-real. For all we know we could just be a simulation of big computer. A “Real” Matrix. So enjoy your story, as you yourself are writing it for you. I recommend taking part in the writing. Being the Architect of your own life and future. Doing this together with other like-minded Matrix Ninjas will elevate both you, the people in your tribe and the entire human race to new mind-boggling heights.

Do you want join on this epic quest of defining our own “reality”?

Our Dream Party of 1999

Our Dream Party of 1999

Min Stil – Vem är Lord Sillion?

Igår var jag i Kungsbacka och gjorde en Pecha Kucha. Jag hade sett kvällen innan att det fanns 2 avhopp och att Kajas som har det la ut en förfrågan om någon kunde hoppa in. Eftersom jag själv nu kan anses som en PK veteran med 7 tidigare tal så hoppade jag på utmaningen. På samma tisdag morgon sa Kajsa att det är skoj om jag kom med. Då kom jag på att jag kanske ska fråga vilket ämne det är. Det är “Stil” sa hon och det kommer passa dig perfekt.

Så med 2 timmars förberedelse begav jag mig till Kungsbacka efter att först ha tittat förbi en Open Call för #VarbergCalling for peace på Komedianten i Varberg.

Att våga komma ut som sig själv

Denna gången var det på Tio Pepe. Kajsa hade samlat mycket folk till deras Pecha Kucha #5 och det dök även upp en hel skolklass som skulle se. Dom blev en prefekt målgrupp till mitt ämne. Att våga komma ut som sig själv.  Med 20 förberedda slides och en story-ark som påminde om det tal jag höll på WebCoast – Om att leva utanför ramarna. När mina bilder dök upp så fick jag in ett flöde direkt från hjärtat istället för det jag planerat. Och tur var det, för detta blev mycket bättre och ärligare till mig själv 🙂

Se det på Youtube här: Min Stil – Lord Sillion Pecha Kucha Kungsbacka

Min Pecha Kucha i Kunsbacka den 24 mars 2015

Min Pecha Kucha i Kunsbacka den 24 mars 2015


Så vem är jag?

Ni får lyssna på denna historien i min Pecha Kucha från Kungsbacka först. Under min resa som tog fart på riktigt när jag klev upp på scenen tillsammans med Mindless Self Indulgence så har jag bytt min bild av mig själv och mina titlar hela tiden. Det som är konstant är att jag är en framtidstänkare och futurist. Mina tanke går kring hur vi tillsammans skapar framtidens hållbara kreativa samhälle. Relationssamhället, det som Seth Godin kallar “The Connection Economy”.

Digital Strateg och Kreativ Ninja

Det jag kan och kallar mig nu är Digital StrategVisionär och Kreativ Ninja. Som digital strateg har jag koll på det mest som händer inom nätverkssamhället och hur framgångsrikt gör kampanjer och marknadsföring via social media. Som kreativ visionär jobbar jag med att sätt upp visioner för framtiden. Jag håller koll på det mesta man bör kunna som entreprenör från inkubator-processer till hur man får en kreativ hub att ticka med event, co-working ställen och kreativa människor. Then we have the Ninja. Som ninja lever man maximalt anpassningsbar till som omgivning. Man går all in på en mission eller uppdrag.  Man kan arbeta agilt i små flexibla team som justerar sin kurs dagligen och ta sig ann mycket större utmaningar än större långsamma team. –

G33K, Dreamer & Dancer [Omvärldsbevakning]

Jag har också en sjuk mängd intressen som jag kämpar att underhålla med en allt större FOMO 🙂

Mycket kretsar kring intressen som kreativitet, podcaster, beteendevetenskap, teknik, datorer, spel (brädspel, datorspel, kortspel), e-Sport, League Of Legends, film, tV-serier, Sci-Fi, fitness, hälsa, empati, vetenskap, musik (Pop, Rock, Synth, Trance, House, Goth, Hardstyle Rave) och all things G33K!

Detta gör mig till fantastisk Omvärldsbevakare. Jag har en hjärna som orkar ta till mig massor med ny information och insikter varje dag. Detta gör att jag har en bra förmåga att se synergieffekter och koppla samman saker med en röd tråd.

Nu återstår frågan hur ska jag bäst använda min kombination av talanger för att hjälpa andra att bli bättre?

Vad tycker du att jag ska göra?

Jag behöver en Mentor!

Om ni läst min blog om Tai Lopez eller lyssnat på honom prata om vikten av en mentor så vet ni hur viktigt det är. Så jag är kanske precis som du i stort behov av en mentor som kan ta mig lägre. Är du en eller känner du någon som skulle passa mig?

Ruckusmaker Day

In honor of the 60th birthday of Steve Jobs on February 24th we celebrate what Seth Godin calls #RuckusmakerDay. That means you should do something out of the ordinary. Connect with someone, share your thoughts in a blog. Don’t just share a story. Make a story worth sharing. What Navid Modiri calls #storydoers. Here in Varberg we want to make change with #VarbergCalling for peace with Empathy, Creativity and Innovation. On 24th February I will hold a quick workshop in how to make change using Social Media in Varberg during Open Call. And I will attend an Entrepreneur meet-up to help other entrepreneurs to get up to speed with the connection economy. Steve_Crazy

Make a Ruckus!

Commit to articulating your point of view on one relevant issue, one news story, one personnel issue. Every day. Online or off, doesn’t matter. Share your taste and your perspective with someone who needs to hear it. Speak up. Not just tomorrow, but every day. — Seth Godin

So what does it mean to make a Ruckus? Seth Godin explains it well in his talk at 99u. Making a ruckus means to do something that stands out. Something that might not work and that isn’t for everyone. To make something that would be missed if you didn’t. You do this by surrounding yourself with people who will challenge and inspire you to take your work, your art to the next level. To do something that builds connection so that someone else can use it to tell a story about themselves and the tribe they live in.

On Ruckusmaker Day you are encouraged to speak up, to have an opinion on something you care about. Too often we fall back on other people’s views and actions, we retweet their words and their thoughts – we feel safer riding on someone else’s shoulders.

Why is suddenly okay to do this work, that has never been done before in history? Because now it’s free to fail. With the power of the networked society we can no try something out and iterate or do something new until we succeed. In this paradigm shift to the Connection Economy we can suddenly dance with our fears. Because we are not alone anymore. We can now find our tribe and help each other out. If we make something that someone don’t like we can now say: It’s not for you.

If we are trying to please everyone, we will end up pleasing no one — Seth Godin 

Be incredibly generous and connected to a community that will help all of us, to do more and better art.

Go make a Ruckus! Be a Ruckusmaker!

Holistisk inspiration


Här får du ny holistisk inspiration och nya insikter. Hur bygger vi framtids samhällen, städer och imperium tillsammans? Hur ska vi anpassa oss till den Digitala Dimensionen som börjar påverka allting omkring oss? Och vad måste vi veta om dom påhittade historier som vi alla tror på just nu. Här nedan finner du 5 inspirationskällor som alla människor måste förhålla sig till.

Darja Isaksson – Digitaliseringens möjligheter till en bättre välfärd 

– Digitalt och Internet är en ny dimension. Allting omkring oss. All individer och sammanhang där vi organiserar oss på något sätt. Alla saker som vi använder. Alla fysiska platser är på väg att få en Digital Dimension .

Maker-rörelsen är en av nyckelstenarna. För att den lär ut ett nytt tänk med DIY, Kreativitet och samarbete.

– All innovation är team-arbete. Samarbete och kommunikation är jätteviktigt. Vi måste alla lära oss att tänka kritiskt och ställa bra frågor.

– Den stora utmaningen är inte hur vi ska lära barnen att anpassa sig. Det är oss vuxna som Darja är orolig över. Om 5 år kommer massor ha förändrats. Mycket mer än dom senaste 5 åren sen 2010. Innan vi hade iPads och Social Medier hade slagit igenom på riktigt. Det handlar om vår Demokrati!

– Framtiden kommer mycket snabbare än vi kan föreställa oss. Robotar, AI och självkörande bilar kommer skaka om i grytan ganska rejäl bara inom 2-5 år. 46% av dagens jobb kommer försvinna på 20 år. Vi måste hitta ett nytt system hur vi tänker kring allting i samhället.



Dr Yuval Noah Harar

Jag gick en fantastisk MOOC i början av januari med Dr Yuval. Här kan ni se en timmes session från RSA som sammanfattar hans bok bra: 
Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

“Humans live in dual reality objective & fictional simultaneously & over time fictional has become dominant”

“Shared stories / “imagined realities” allow sapiens to weave unique networks of cooperation”

“Only humans have the power of abstract thought. You could never convince a chimp that he will get a banana ‘in the after life'”

“Believing the same stories = obeying the same laws” Dr Harari and the importance of imagination in collaboration.

“Most of human conflicts throughout history have been not about scarcity, but about stories that people chose to believe in”

‘We need to change the stories in people’s minds in order to create the better world’

“When need 10 million people to believe a story, u don’t need math, u need art”

“history of civilisation has been dominated by successful stories often accidentally”

“Even secular people still hold narratives that they take from ‘above’ some external law that resembles the following of religion”

“Most of the time we are thinking about made up stories e.g. money, EU, Google, religion. ”

“The American Dollar is one of the best collective stories, we all believe in”

“Silicon Valley is a narrative for today – one that could equal the power of any religion.” Dr Harari



Charlotta Mellander

Pratar om vad det är som attraherar unga till en stad och hur man får igång en kreativ hub i en stad. Talanger och lärande: Vad attraherar talanger

Viktiga saker att tänka på

Var vill unga, kreativa och/eller smarta människor bo? Dit ska du flytta eller starta din verksamhet.

Skapa en mångfald av utbud när det gäller allting. Kultur, mat, nöjen, upplevelser, event, natur, sport, hälsa och friskvård.

Tillräcklig kritisk massa för olika subkulturer inom den magiska pendlings-gränsen på 45-50 minuter.

Lärd dig att ha en holistisk syn och se utanför din egen bubbla / egna bubblor. Olika saker är viktigt för olika människor och vid olika tider i livet. Dom som bestämmer är oftast 50+ och tenderar att bara se till sina egna bubblor.



Stefan Hyttfors

Jag hittade en ny video med Stefan Hyttfors. Det han har att säga är så viktigt så att alla borde lyssna på det en gång i månaden så att man vet att man är på rätt spår med sina tankar. Stefan Hyttfors om framtiden från 2014.

Robotar och AI kommer fortare av vad vi tror. Det finns inget sätt att “Fixa” jobben. Vi får hitta på ett bättre system istället. #AlltÄrPåhittat som Navid Modiri säger.

Jorden kommer finnas kvar. Det är vårt samhälle och vårt levnadssätt som måste bli mer hållbart och det fort om vi vill ha det kvar. Alternativet är väldigt farligt och slutar förmodligen i en katastrofal dystopi.



Varberg Sessions 01

Under #VarbergSessions i januari fick vi en väldigt intressant insyn i hur Malmö gjorde om sig från en Varvsstad till en Kreativ Stad. Kärnan i att få det att fungera var en satsning på en central högskola och ett rikt stadsliv. Se dessa 2 videos om det: Del 1 Ilmar Reepalu om framgångssagan Malmö och Del 2 Möt Åke E. Andersson om forskning kring stadsutveckling.

Prep, Pitch and Pepp

Tonight I have been to a meetup with some fellow entrepreneurs that all joined up for a course in running your own business last fall in Varberg, Sweden. We all met up to share our stories and to do some pitching. We also talked about how we should sell ourself, our products and our services. It was all led by the awesome Jannike and Lovisa, who both radiate some much positive energy where ever they go.

Prep [Be Prepared]

When ever you are going to meet someone do your homework before you meet them. Read up on who they are and what they are passionate about. Show them that you are interested in who they are and what they do. Sincerely.

It’s curios that the knowledge of How To Win Fiends And Influence People are still not common knowledge and taught to every child, despite that is almost 80 years ago the Dale Carnage came out with his famous book and that modern science has come so far as to how to build genuine connection between people.

Pitch [Pitch Black or How To Convey Any Message]

We all need to pitch. We need to pitch our ideas to friends and family. We need to pitch our business proposal to potential clients and investors. It can be a short elevator pitch of 20 to 30 seconds. It can be in the more prepared format that some did tonight with a Powerpoint presentation of 7 slides with 30 seconds speaking time each slide totaling 3 min 30 sec. Or it can be longer really prepared pitch running 15-20 minutes with months of research and work behind it. Like the ones that Oren Klaff does.


The Croc Brain [The Lizard Brain – The Resistance]

If we want to pitch anything we must first get our words, pictures and story past the what Oren Klaff calls the Croc Brain and Seth Godin calls the Lizard Brain. we do that by telling an emotional story that resonates with the receiver. Oren Klaff, who is a professional pitcher of the biggest ideas and deals there is explains this well in his book: Pitch Anything. Or to just get the best part see or listen to this talk between Oren and Chase Jarvis. Even if his cases are bit extreme and most the time a kind of competitive pitching between people who are trying to “win” at any cost, you can still apply most of his thinking to your everyday pitching 🙂

Pepp [And Boost each other]

Then we have what Seth Godin calls the Connection Economy. This is a very deep topic. I sum it up in my blog post. in short it’s about all this things: Trust, Permission, Remarkability, Leadership, Stories that spread, Connection, Compassion, and Humility. We all want to been noticed and feel important. So it’s all about making your customers, your suppliers and your coworkers feel special. We all need to connect more. We also should seek out people who make us feel good and stay away from toxic people who drag us down. It’s what  true what Scott Dinsmore is always talking about in his Live Your Legend Local concept.

“The fastest way to do the things you don’t think can be done is to hang around the people already doing them” – Scott Dinsmore

In honor of that I’m hosting meetups where the main point is to meet up, share our thoughts, ideas and dreams of the future. To pepp each other and to hold one another accountable for the plans we all make. Do join us for the next one on February 8th in Varberg. Or do find one in of the other 44 countries all over the world hosting one.

You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with - Jim Rohn

You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with – Jim Rohn

Selling [Don’t Sell, Make A Connection Instead]

We are all in sales now like Daniel Pink says in his book. But sales does not mean what it used to mean. It’s now more than ever to bild a connection with your customer and give them what they need.

And don’t try to please everyone or make a product that everyone will want. Because if you try to do this, you will end up with a service or product that no one needs or wants.

GO Make A Ruckus!

The reason I’m so exited about all this is because they I have just finished Seth Godin’s latest audiobook in a form of a 2 hour compilation from his seminars called Leap First.

What am I Making Then?

I’m finally narrowing down what my art is and what I want to spend my time doing.

I will help people and companies to navigate the connection economy. I will offer to make speeches and workshops on how to best flourish in this modern society. I will help develop ideas, visions and strategies for this networked society.

I will create places and events where people can meet and share knowledge and be creative.

I will give the young so-called Hacker-clubs and Hackathons for us more “adult”.

I want everybody to have a curious mind about the future. And I want to teach people how to become a Modern Creative Ninja. That is was my first handbook is about.
