The incredible Red woods. Just found this while looking back over our trip last month to California.

Vince, our Daughter, Kyyio, married in the Woodlands Redwood Park in Mendocino on the summer solstice this year. We can't attend the Buddhist geeks conference this year and I am sorry to hear that it may be the last. All the very best, Cary

Vincent will be joined in this conversation by buddhify app creator and long-time friend of Buddhist Geeks, Rohan Gunatillake to discuss the Indie Buddhist maker movement.  They'll begin by looking at Rohan's latest project, buddhify 2--gleaning hard earned lessons from his work.  They'll also explore trends from the indie game movement to speculate on what we those in the Buddhist field might learn from independent game makers.

We'll make time at the end of the interview for live questions and comments from those community members who can participate in real-time.  
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Vincent Horn. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Very cool.  Just think while we have a growth driven economy the behavior change piece of the equation will be very difficult to influence.

A quick question arises for me - what is link between the various structures in the brain that enables them to work together?  Does Kurzweil establish that the link between ourselves and the digital world can operate in the same way. So we have access to another million possible smart replies, fine. What informs our choice of reply? If the answer to being is always embedded being - that is being embedded in, and interacting on, a physical world, how exactly will this extended brain Kurzweil speak to our physical embodiment better than our own brains can? I like Kevin Kelly's ideas much better. Intelligence is going to emerge out of the hardware of our technology - not for us - but for itself. At this point it is our role to seed inclinations in technology that will ensure it plays a positive role in our future.

I think this data health tech, while not completely mature yet--I've had both the Fuelband for well over a year and now the Up band for several months and I concur that it isn't completely mind blowing--is improving pretty rapidly. My sense is that the correlation between fuel points (I.e. Data) and activity will get better as new sensors are added and the custom training part will get more intelligent as the learning algorithms improve and there's more data to work with. Personally, I'm stoked for a health coach to start getting my ass off the couch more. :-D

There are two traps in what I hear you saying Tom and Ron. One is that we can do it without technology, so why bother. Well, not everyone (clearly) can do an hour of yoga a day for 15 years. If the number of people who could was increased due to enabling technologies, why not? The other problem is with mistaking the early limitations of a technology with what that technology is becoming. People are constantly underestimating technologies potential based on early prototypes or versions--look at the haranguing Google Glass is getting now and how easily people are discounting wearables, even though they're in a completely nascent phase. Imagine judging the potential of smartphone technology based on the early palm pilots...

Anyway, just some additional thoughts at 3:36am. I wonder if my Up Band is tracking this as sleep? ;)

The team at Laurel were extremely helpful as my wife and I progressed through pregnancy--ok, mostly my wife, but you have no idea how much food I had to pick off the ground the last 9 months! Where they really shined though was during the birth itself. Dr. Veazey, one of their 5 primary doctors, was our delivering doctor and she was insanely great. She coached Emily through a very difficult transition & pushing period and was selfless with her time & energy. After the pregnancy was over my wife said to me, "I wish I could buy her a house." Well, at the very least we'd like to share with the world what a good team they have at Laurel Ob-Gyn.
