THE NEXT GENERATION
The Node Chronicles is about you, "The Next Generation." The G-Neeks started this movement as a way to spread acts of education all over the planet. Deemed as the only way out of the mess, G-Neeks believe that YOU will solve the next set of problems we face, and that only YOU can change the world around you.
To make tech easy to understand, the G-Neeks tasked one of the greatest students of the game, Gou Sokyeo, to spread The Hacker Way. This is your opportunity to do something great for you and your family, and your community. To do this, use your natural learning abilities along with Node Chronicles and The Hacker Way and unlock your destiny.
Meet the Cast
Gou Sokyeo has only one characteristic that makes him different from other teenagers; his understanding of The Hacker Way. We're talking about a highly potent, insanely powerful philosophy that helps people of all ages recognize opportunity, breakdown complexity and reverse engineer anything in life. It's a method of hacking learning, focused on jumping in and building things that didn't exist before in order to improve the world around you (whatever that means to you).
Gou found the power of The Hacker Way at the age of 13 - a year prior to when all of the madness began.
Lilu Sokyeo is Gou's younger sister and resident math and biology expert. A little one with book smarts, Lilu's way too young to be exploring biohacking, and her desktop experiments with CRISPR, artificial photosynthesis and DNA storage often concern her mentor, Ladybug. There's a worry she might some day accidentally let loose a mutation into the environment that could change nature as we know it (for better or for worse).
No one knows where Lilu got her smarts from, but she's more naturally gifted than Gou could ever be. Some believe it's from her ability to read books without falling asleep. That single trait in her brain, along with a naturally instinctive fascination with geometrical patterns found in nature, cymatics, DNA and the universe are gonna make you ask some serious questions about life.
Brother of Gou and Lilu, Nōn is a jock who's only goal in life is to become a professional soccer player, until the day he's forced to use his tenacity for something other than sports. Wise up to a journey that many young athletes might some day need to face - reality.
CHINO & VERO
Gou's father Chino once led the most significant stealth mode underground particle accelerator project on the planet. After the "Powers That Be" blackballed him for not sharing something he discovered, he suffered a major melt-down (possibly induced). Years later, Chino's apprentice Vero Reba, PhD, steps in to help the Sokyeo children recoup after their mother disappears. Vero, the overqualified new caretaker of the Sokyeo children, begins to realize the kids are up to stuff that could be very dangerous, and finds herself needing to make a difficult decision.
The influencers, many still alive today, are world renown technology wizards. With signs they were to become unicorns, these people changed life as we know it, over and over. These CEO's and Chairman are everything from gatekeepers of the worlds information and our voyagers to the stars. How will each user their wealth, power and companies to change life as we know it? Only Node Chronicles dares to shine a light on these figures and their deeds.
The legends that came before us each figured out a piece of the puzzle. Like a baton in a relay race, the legends passed us clues and starting points to build our newest inventions. Some gave us warnings, others predicted the future. Some even told us things we never could believe. As you explore technology with Node Chronicles and The Hacker Way you'll learn about these incredible people, their findings and what clues they left for us.
