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.

Hey, you need to edit this, and expand on the TCP-IP part, somewhere there's a classic video of Vint Cerf telling how "THE EXPERIMENT GOT LOOSE!!!!" ... And he's still running around trying to fix it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hr6VpPJywYw Skip to 2:15 if you like...

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...

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!

I think this video is necessary, but it needs a good remake... more along the lines of how we shape our world with our beliefs and how those beliefs spread. 

This does touch on many important points, desperately begging for videos: The current monetary policy debates... The faith-composition of those running much of the finance world, and how their beliefs impact on us (Shemitah, Jubilee); people's unrealistic expectations of the current time (the root of most conspiracy theories!) - I mean, we only got electricity how long ago?! Computers? Social Media? People need to understand how much time things take... and that the ancient Romans, and Indian civilizations have documentation of dealing with the same sort of problems, 2000, 5000 and 6000 years ago! (BBC History of India 5 part series; Michiu Kaku's definition of "Terrorism"; Ray Kurzweil's "Epochs of information")

What's the cutting edge of the debate on how people will live when machines are doing most of their work? What was the roots of socialism? And the political systems we haven't figured out quite yet - or some of us think we have, but we haven't reached consensus yet. Why were people afraid of Lennon and Kennedy? Why is it good to have separate, independent countries? TO LIMIT THE SPREAD OF BAD IDEOLOGY AND THE IMPACT OF BAD GOVERNMENT! To run experiments on nation-state-sized populations, instead of humanity as a whole!

How can we set up a perfect system whereby doctors make MORE MONEY when you are HEALTHIER, so as to provide an incentive to keep you as healthy as possible? (Thank you for Smoking: "Mr. Senator, it's in our best interests to keep our clients alive and paying for as long as possible.") Capitalism works great for products, but not so for services and products linked to services, and not if there's a shortage of skills! Also it doesn't address unnecessarily redundant infrastructure; although it doesn't install itself as a bottleneck, like a government does! 

Why do people have so little self-insight? How many wrong assumptions do we make every day, believing we are right? How many times do humans have to get their face rubbed into how ego-centric, self-centered, short-sighted they are? What are the phases of spiritual growth people go through, and the characteristics of each? What do the faiths have in common? How have good intentions repeatedly paved the way to the worst possible things, in history? How do we overcome this? ...

Also, it's okay if someone kept a cure for cancer for themselves, AS LONG AS WE HAD A TRULY FREE MARKET, AND ANYONE COULD COPY THEM WITHOUT BEING PROSECUTED BY LAWS THOSE COMPANIES PROPOSED TO GOVERNMENT!!! (And regulation usually is the enemy of a free market, as the only people who can afford to lobby the regulators are the ones with the most resources. I mean - the guys with the most money, want to take on the least risk?! Really... how does that make sense? They already have money, they ARE the arguably the only ones who can AFFORD risk!!!)

For the record, ironically, Steve Jobs died because indeed there are conspiracies running our world - you don't have to dig deep about the scams and scandals of the Heart Foundation - and he presumed the whole pharmaceutical industry guilty until proven innocent and hence, opted for "natural remedies", so it's the most ironic choice ever to use him as a case study here!!! (http://www.forbes.com/sites/alicegwalton/2011/10/24/steve-jobs-cancer-treatment-regrets/)

Anyways... the world is the way it is, because nobody has figured out a better way. Thanks for your videos, keep it up!

Great open co-working spaces, quick meeting areas, or a place to grab lunch. Or even get your head massaged. Pun intended.

When I think of Cape Town Airport I think of friendly staff, friendly people... and heart-warming hello's and good-byes, like champagne bottles of emotions overflowing... no matter what time of day or night. Just a pity all the shops close at 9pm :'(

How can you go wrong "braaiing" your own food on your own table! Even if the service isn't great, the concept is brilliant - assuming you can reach consensus on how the food should be done :) Great sauces and a selection of Korean drinks.
