I typed up a letter of advice that I would've liked to receive a few years back - but never did. I realized that it might be too long, so I'll be splitting it into short blog posts over the next few weeks. http://oops-i-have-a-business-what-now.blogspot.co.za/

20:00 Sooo.... why are we arguing about semantics...  "is maths discovered or invented". Really?! Maths is a language. The nature of reality is discovered. Aren't the mathematical equations describing the nature of reality more akin to a scalpel used to dissect pieces of possible realities from the actual one, than something invented or discovered? And if so, how can we ensure this notion becomes part of common sense, so as to elevate our seemingly primitive language-mangled debates to a higher frontier... such as... why computer programming isn't taught as the basis of maths?

http://www.linuxmint.com/ There you go. Enjoy. Want to try it from a USB stick? Download this: https://rufus.akeo.ie/ ..And then download any Linux ISO image, and check "Create a bootable disk using ISO Image" and select it. Reboot your PC and hammer ESC or F12 while it's turning on, and choose your USB drive. Voila!

TL;DR :-(

The 2nd last paragraph is a good summary. Thanks, we can now survive a little longer by cutting our tethers to the internet... 

Step back... 

There's a whole generation whom Google has already wowed with their bag of tricks, who is now thinking... "now they want us to pay." And possibly... that's not the Google we love and know... this is a mutation and it's scary ...to these Google Cheerleaders... who are also now growing up and realizing that the "primitive" money that the world revolves around, is still the best tech we've got, ruling the world...

...yet... we quite possibly share that yearning for the mirage of a social utopia on the horizon ... flickering in the distance over a desert of technology.... a yearning to overcome the mistakes of centuries, the "me-first" evolution of eons with a "world-first" neo-cortical-information-evolution.... eager to well and truly step into this looming age of abundance, and abolish suffering even without mindful meditation. 

So what would I have liked to read? 

Something short and wacky. More in line with the Google personality we know. 

But I'm not an investor and as of this moment, I'd have to drive a broken car for another while if I wanted to buy even one share.

So, for that me, what would I have liked to read? 

Here it is: (!)

Google has organized the world's information. 
Now Google is organizing the world! 
Google is reinventing the economy. 

...the banks wouldn't like that, though... In fact, it would be the sum of everyone's fears. 

But that's what some fear anyways, so play to it. Because this toning it down isn't working...

...perhaps just play with the wording...

...

Google is giving you real time insight into what is making the world tick.

Google has searched you, and found what life is all about. It's not 42! It's for two: us and you. 

GOOGLE IS GIVING YOU THE ANSWERS TO LIFE, THE UNIVERSE, AND EVERYTHING. NOW IT'S ALL UP TO YOU. 

What? You don't want the burden?

Okay, in truth, Google Isn't going anywhere... We're sitting tight. But we can't do it alone either. 

Google is giving all its customers equity in proportion to how much they spend.

GOOGLE IS GOING INTO CRYPTO CURRENCY IN A BIG WAY!

Every search, gets you a piece of Google.

Every cent you spend, gets you another piece.

Google is here to stop Mark Zuckerberg from turning into Emperor Palpatine!

JOIN US!

Oh wait, sorry got my fan fiction al warped. 

...Actually, we can't do any of that. We're too dumb. Come work for us? Please?

Just kidding, we're building a super auto-pilot that will figure it all out. Hopefully before you do. So we can control it! AND RULE!

Actually, we're spending a lot of time trying to figure out how to make it dumb enough to control. 

Actually, we're not dumb enough to do that. So we're building two, so they can control each other. 

Oh wait, what's that? What? Hundreds of millions? Cpu's? Solar power? Radio waves?

Oh... shit... what, who? Dammit!

Products and happiness
So, what does happiness have to do with selling a service or a product? Well, how can you be sure your product is valued and wanted? Does your product eat people's time, or does it give them more? Or does it do a bit of both? If it all balances out in the e...

What are you doing?
Drive down the road and see an old person who can barely walk, crossing it. That old person is you. Someone, impatient, is waiting for you to cross. While you're walking, it's only your subconscious barely reflecting back on your life. You think of the car,...

27:15 Aristotle was right... just not about the scale of the proportions. :-p

10:45 Cute picture... fact remains, Mathematics is just a crib-note notation to describe things, such as reality. All of maths is a subset of algorithms. It's easier to describe maths in algorithms, than to describe algorithms in maths.
