“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” - Albert Einstein

This is Aycan Gulez, your host (LinkedIn | Twitter). I’m currently the CTO at Reengen & Faradai. I lead the development of our energy IoT and sustainability software platforms, which are used by a number of mid to large-size companies to monitor and reduce their energy consumptions. I like to think that I’m doing my part in saving mother Earth from an upcoming climate calamity.

Why the name “Lack of Imagination” you might ask. I’ve noticed that the more I think I know about some subject, the more confident I get about it, and become less likely to entertain alternative views. This, in my opinion, leads to a dangerous state of mind: a lack of imagination. So, I chose to name this site “Lack of Imagination” to remember that the world is big, and there are so many things I don’t know no matter how much I think I know.

I’m writing this blog to share my views about the subjects that I think I’m at least somewhat qualified to write about. Hopefully, some of the entries on this site will attract the attention of people who can contribute their own viewpoints.
