Tanav’s Alphabets

Guy Kawasaki’s interview with Moira Gunn

Brilliant interview by Guy Kawasaki with Moira Gunn on her new book “Welcome to Biotech Nation“. Some facts are shocking and others very close to my heart. Moira is very articulate and does a great job of explaining “Biotech” and how it relates to us today. Some excerpts of the interview: It was shocking to […]



Diabetes

I have diabetes since 2001. Before I was diagnosed I never knew much about it except that everyone keeps telling their grand parents who have it to not add sugar in their coffee or not eat sweets. Well, I wasn’t a grand father so I was puzzled as to why I became diabetic just when […]
