Pedro was born in Mozambique in 1961, attended English schools in Lisbon and pursued his education until finishing a degree in Law. When he was around 33, Pedro decided there’s more to life than being a lawyer and tried his hand at various business activities, the most interesting of which was a company that produced and managed rock bands. In 2012 he decided to pick up again a long-forgotten hobby of his: writing. He started with a blog, mainly dedicated to political satire. Encouraged by the feedback from the blog Pedro then decided to try his hand at a whole book, an effort which resulted in the creation of “The Prince and the Singularity – A Circular Tale”.
Pedro’s second book “Marlene & Sofia – A Double Love Story” was released on 2 July, 2014. His third book “The Algorithm of Power” is in the offing. It will probably see the light of day in the first half of 2017.
“Should societies be run by an operating system, instead of governments?
Should politicians be made obsolete?
This book tells the story of the ascent to power of Digital Alternative, a new movement that intends to revolutionize politics… by doing away with politics.
From its humble origins, as a buggy strategy game, developed by a geeky teenager, Epochs evolves to become The Network, the operating system that will rule over the whole planet. What will the consequences be, and what is the true story behind such an unlikely sequence of events?
Split between the 21st and the 24th centuries The Algorithm of Power is a new type of dystopia. One in which the future that awaits you is not democratic, but the government has no use for torture, Gulags or a secret police – because no one even notices there is a government.
Welcome to the rule of software!”
