I am so thrilled to finally be able to share this video. My friend Kristin, has an amazing story. If you only watch one TED talk, skip mine & watch hers!

Why is Google so uncool about naming?  This "approved preassigned Custom URL" thing is just aggravating.  Why make yet another namespace?  We already all have unique gmail names.

Good point, Pablos, but I think they did a good job assigning names to people/pages more likely to used them. I'm glad the Nmap page, for example, was able to get google.com/+nmap rather than if they had saved that name for whoever signed up for nmap@gmail.com a decade ago and may not even use G+ or even gmail any longer.  And they seemed to reserve names which match the ones we use for Facebook and/or Twitter, which is nice.  I was a bit annoyed that they made me provide a phone number and do SMS verification to secure the name, then they added it to my profile with search-by-phone number enabled.  It took me some time to find the option to turn off search-by-phone-number.

My buddy Dan Ariely is a badass professor at Duke.  He is attempting to subvert his entire career by PUTTING HIS COURSE ONLINE FOR FREE.  Don't miss it.

For almost a decade, Neal Stephenson & I have been swordfighting.  From the start we've been trying to figure out how to mash this up with modern technology to make awesome swordfighting games.  We're finally ready to do it and we need your help.  Please check out our Kickstarter video and show your geek friends:

Squattaz! If you are hoarding domain names (like me), let me see what you've got. I need to find a cool brand name and don't seem to have the right thing in my collection.

A good day for me is one where my attire looks conservative compared to the folks around me.  Check out this interview I did with David Shing:

My talk from the Google Zeitgeist event last week. I had a 110' wide screen!

Here's to the Curious - Pablos Holman - Zeitgeist Americas 2013

I went onstage after a heart wrenching appearance by Gabby Gifford and her husband, so I was literally choked up when I went on stage.

I watched a show on SyFy years ago called "Eureka" it was about this town somewhere that had been filled with all the brightest scientists in the country and were left to do R&D all day everyday. That show made me decide if I ever became filthy rich I would do something similar. Just invite people who had the capacity to create the future into a single location with funding based on patents and consumer products they had manufactured so that everything that was made would go back into the program to expand and create more inventions. I see that Bill Gates beat me to it for the most part but it's great to see what is being done there. It is one of the few things that give me hope for the future. Smart, well funded nerds making problems go away with technology and thought. It is fantastic, thank you.

Too bad this is an old post. I am an ex-restaurant entrepreneur and Technologist. :(

However, maybe +Pablos Holman you'll be interested in using my current startups Wearable technology we make... Slowly until we get Angel funding.
