Re/Code co-host Jason Wilke is trying to make the most of his new job as a software engineer at a startup that makes skin care products.
The product, SkinPouch, uses sensors to track the shape and texture of the skin.
The company, called Bambi, has been testing the product at some of the top technology companies in the world, including Amazon and Facebook.
But, for some reason, it has yet to make it to the mainstream.
“I have never been an active member of a political group,” Wilke told Recode.
“And I’m still a non-political member of the political arena.
But I’ve seen enough of this stuff on TV to make me curious.”
Here are some of his thoughts on how politics might affect his work and life.
How politics might influence your work and your personal life.
Wilke started to think about politics after reading the book The Myth of the American Dream.
In it, author Benjamin Franklin, a Republican, argued that the dream was built on a system that encouraged people to work hard.
“If I can be a slave, and if I can’t get an education, if I cannot have a decent roof over my head, if my parents cannot work and feed me, if all I can do is keep an eye on my feet and keep going, then the only way to keep going is to work harder and keep the dream alive,” he wrote.
In a recent interview with Recode, Wilke shared that while he is not politically active, his work with Bambu makes him think about his political views.
“It’s something I’ve been thinking about for the past couple years, but I don’t have any firm answers about what that means,” Wilkes said.
He said that he is a member of “the left-wing” when it comes to politics, and he believes that people like Franklin’s vision of a meritocracy is an important way to build a better society.
What he found most interesting is the way in which Franklin’s message resonates with him and his family.
“The whole point of my life is to have a better life,” Wilkie said.
“So I really have no real interest in politics, I think, at the moment.”
He added that his wife is a “non-political activist” and that she feels like he is “very politically correct” when he speaks about politics.
“When we’re discussing politics, we’re always in a hurry, we don’t wait for the facts to get in front of us,” he said.
The question is, how do you tell the difference between what he says and what you see?
In a new interview with Business Insider, Wilkes shared a few ways to think of the difference he sees between politics and reality.
First, he said that politics is “really not all that different from what I see every day.”
The problem is that it is not real.
It is the product of people’s lives and beliefs, and it is based on the assumption that we are better than other people.
In other words, politics is about power, not what is right.
So the difference is not a “subtle difference” between politics in the way that Franklin argued, but an actual difference in what people think and act based on who they are and what they believe in.
He added: If you believe in a meritocratic society where people are judged on merit, and not on how well they can do a job, then you’re not going to believe in anything political.
The way politics works is that we see the world as a place where the best and the brightest people are rewarded, and those people don’t necessarily reflect our values.
In reality, however, the rewards of power are not based on achievement, but on ability.
Wilkes believes that the people he knows who are in the tech industry are doing “very well” and don’t believe that the system is rigged.
“But it is pretty clear to me that the best of the best are getting very, very rich,” he explained.
Wilken added that the way he thinks about politics is that “we all live in a political bubble,” but he believes it has been built by people in the industry to “maximize profits.”
This means that the industry is trying, in order to keep people in line, to keep politicians from stepping on the gas pedal.
“In order to be successful in this system, you need to think like a capitalist,” he told Recombode.
The “marketplace of ideas” is a place in which companies like Bambis are trying to provide a product that will help people live better lives.
But the problem is, it’s not working.
“There are some things that I think people have to agree with me on,” he noted.
“Like the fact that our political systems are not fair.
Or the fact our voting systems are rigged.
Or that our healthcare systems are unfair.”
