a little thought provocation

Minimalism is not a viable intellectual strategy

Minimalism cannot be a long-term strategy, but it makes an excellent short-term tactic.

Something to think about - can minimalism be a good long-term strategy?

'There is only passion.'

There is no talent

It's so easy to give up; it might almost seem like the whole world is against you. Well, forget about the rest of the world. There is no such thing as talent, and in the end you will end up as skilled as your "talented" heros.

Simply by following your passion.

be 'Proactively Nice'

Operation NICE

Don't you love it when people go out of their way to be nice? Like when someone waits to hold the door for you. Or when a stranger waves you into a line a traffic. Or even when a coworker shoots you a friendly smile along with a "have a nice day." If everyone was a little bit nicer to the folks they encountered each day, perhaps the world would be a more pleasant place. Operation NICE was initiated to remind you that a little NICE goes a long way.

rediscovered this morning...

Some Photographs of That Day

Background information at Wikipedia:

Jamie Livingston (October 25, 1956 - October 25, 1997) was a New York-based photographer, film-maker and circus performer. Between March 31, 1979 and October 25, 1997, the day of his death, he took a single picture nearly every day with a Polaroid camera.

'a step closer'

Toward the Semantic Web

If the current Web is like a giant text file - which you can search for instances of particular words – the Semantic Web would be like a database, where every item of information is categorized, and new queries can combine categories in any imaginable way. You could, for instance, search the Web for a restaurant within a mile of a railway station in a town with a theater that offers vegetarian lasagna and at least one lamb dish. And if you wanted the restaurant's menu, you could pull up just the menu – not page after page of review sites that happened to use the word "menu."

bravo for saying it

Advertising is devastating to my well-being

I run my own website(s) at a loss specifically because I'd rather pay out of my own pocket than force people to look at ads. Admittedly my sites are so small that it's not much money. But there you have it. If I had to generate revenue to keep my sites going, I would find a way other than advertising to do it. Or I'd shut them down.

Excessive internet use is linked to depression

Our research indicates that excessive internet use is associated with depression, but what we don't know is which comes first - are depressed people drawn to the internet or does the internet cause depression?
