"Venstre for fremtiden"? Er det bare mig - eller er det ikke et utroligt dårligt slogan? For enden af tunnelen har vi fremtiden - og til venstre for fremtiden står et parti, der gerne vil være fremtiden, men som åbenbart er kommet på afveje

Helt enig, til venstre for framtiden? Kan tolkes på to måter, ta til venstre for framtiden eller Venstre er på venstresiden av framtiden?

"whatever phase of things human and divine you have apprehended, you will be wearied by the vast number of things to be answered and things to be learned. And in order that these manifold and mighty subjects may have free entertainment in your soul, you must remove therefrom all superfluous things. Virtue will not surrender herself to these narrow bounds of ours; a great subject needs wide space in which to move. Let all other things be driven out, and let the breast be emptied to receive virtue.

"But it is a pleasure to be acquainted with many arts." Therefore let us keep only as much of them as is essential. Do you regard that man as blameworthy who puts superfluous things on the same footing with useful things, and in his house makes a lavish display of costly objects, but do not deem him blameworthy who has allowed himself to become engrossed with the useless furniture of learning? This desire to know more than is sufficient is a sort of intemperance. Why? Because this unseemly pursuit of the liberal arts makes men troublesome, wordy, tactless, self-satisfied bores, who fail to learn the essentials just because they have learned the non-essentials. Didymus the scholar wrote four thousand books. I should feel pity for him if he had only read the same number of superfluous volumes. In these books he investigates Homer's birthplace, who was really the mother of Aeneas, whether Anacreon was more of a rake or more of a drunkard, whether Sappho was a bad lot and other problems the answers to which, if found, we're forthwith to be forgotten. Come now, do not tell me that life is long!", Seneca, Letters, 88.35-37

The printed version of this interview has the title "The Eerie vision of Mr. Google". Just to make sure that no reader of Die Zeit got the crazy idea of forming their own opinion
 
Larry Page wants to use Google’s billions to solve some of the biggest problems facing humanity. A visit with possibly the world’s most influential entrepreneur.

Min søster bruger primært Apple-produkter (don't ask) og spørger, hvad der vil være den bedste løsning med henblik på at streame DR-programmer: Apple TV eller Chromecast. Jeg har ingen erfaring med Apple TV, så hermed er spørgsmålet givet videre til jer :-)

While reaffirming the gloomy assessments of the study, Logsdon held out hope that the threat of fact-resistant humans could be mitigated in the future. “Our research is very preliminary, but it’s possible that they will become more receptive to facts once they are in an environment without food, water, or oxygen,” he said"

It would be the death of G+ as a social network, IMO. The lack of economic incentives, is what defines the liberty of information.

Introduction
Trained as a philosopher. Live with my two kids, Sikker and Kirstine, in Copenhagen, Denmark. 

I'm particularly interested in:

- Theories about happiness and the good life - first and foremost the ancient Greek and Roman eudamonistic tradition as we know it from the writings of Plato, Aristotle and the Stoics.

- Human beings as social/political animals

- How we understand the life we live through the stories we tell

- Philosophical counseling

Apart from my philosophical interests, I'm interested in technology as a user who is very particular about his tools. Because of this, I occasionally write about Android phones and tablets and Chrome OS, Google+ and Blogger
