Alex Hern is also concerned with dropping the idea that multitasking makes one more efficient, that social media is a good way to spend your time and that frenetically checking your always-on phone is an avenue to success. In fact, he believes phones should be shut off for 4 hours every day, and what a smart idea that is.
It is no wonder that a progressive thinker like Alex Hern is the CEO of a company that capitalizes on trends.

He called the company Tsunami because of the feeling that we have indeed transitioned to a time when both technologies are necessary to every computing experience.
When Alex Hern was asked how he incubates an idea, and what the process is to bring it to life, he had an interesting answer.
