Public invitation

Dear Deftones,

Please come back to Boston soon. I don't want to be 40 when I see you again because I am getting too old for the mosh pit.




Oh and by the way...

I am finding it harder and harder to suppress all of my thoughts on the state of our economy...I don't have too many opinions or thoughts on macro economics because I don't know anything about the topic, I only recently learned to balance my checkbook. What I have learned, however, is that government and financial leaders are a whole lot less intelligent and trustworthy than I previously imagined.

Is there any kind of movement in our country to end representative democracy? The internet has made the United States Congress obsolete. Then we the people could truly manage our destiny as a people...lobbyists would have to become advertisers in order to push their selfish agendas...which would jump start the floundering advertising industry...perhaps save a few magazines and newspapers...

Slow times

It has taken a while but I am starting to notice the effects of the economy...Noticed many closed businesses outside Boston recently. Also, the price of homes seems to be getting reasonable all of a sudden. Imagine, reasonably priced homes...


On organization..

I finally got around to creating a database pulling all the various URL's, usernames and passwords I have to keep track of together into one document. I am also working on an overhaul of my folder structure. Something has seriously changed in my life because I love organizing things. I may just wrap up all the wires in my office too. I don't know...Don't want to get too crazy...



What to say? Life is good. I found a couple of interesting web sites today:

(warning...seriously dorky content ahead)


Fall is slowly settling into New England. I noticed the first leaves turning in the trees on my way to work this morning. It was a pleasant reminder of the juxtaposition of change and the constant effect of gravity as the earth slowly circles the sun.

My new favorite term is Singularity, which refers to the technical, not the gravitational...a theoretical point in the future where super intelligent technology will explode in an orgasm of accelerating change and exponential advances. Take that Luddites! In yo face!

Given Moore's Law, there will come a time when a computer will be more intelligent than a human. In fact, it is probably going to be in the next 20 years. Just today a coworker and I were waxing nostalgic while he installed a 16 terabyte (wicked big) hard drive array to augment the 42 we already have for our media server. This all fit on a half of a single rack mount. 10 years ago a single terabyte required an 8' tall silo with a robot arm and a climate controlled environment. Oh, and it cost 6 figures...only nuclear labs and defense contractors owned them.

I hope the robots like us.
