Every morning when I wake up, I dedicate myself to helping others to find peace of mind. Then, when I meet people, I think of them as long term friends; I don't regard others as strangers.

Looks like msft is getting their foot through the personal data door with skype integratin and fb. Wouldn't it be nice if we could select what data fb applications had access to rather than it be all or nothing?

Normally you can X out the permission you do not want to give. However it looks like Skype sees it as an all or nothing world.

This is so awesome. Please take a moment to read:

A man sat at a metro station in Washington DC and started to play the violin; it was a cold January morning. He played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, since it was rush hour, it was calculated that 1,100 people went through the station, most of them on their way to work.

Three minutes went by, and a middle aged man noticed there was musician playing. He slowed his pace, and stopped for a few seconds, and then hurried up to meet his schedule.

A minute later, the violinist received his first dollar tip: a woman threw the money in the till and without stopping, and continued to walk.

A few minutes later, someone leaned against the wall to listen to him, but the man looked at his watch and started to walk again. Clearly he was late for work.

The one who paid the most attention was a 3 year old boy. His mother tagged him along, hurried, but the kid stopped to look at the violinist. Finally, the mother pushed hard, and the child continued to walk, turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. All the parents, without exception, forced them to move on.

In the 45 minutes the musician played, only 6 people stopped and stayed for a while. About 20 gave him money, but continued to walk their normal pace. He collected $32. When he finished playing and silence took over, no one noticed it. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.

No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the most talented musicians in the world. He had just played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, on a violin worth $3.5 million dollars.

Two days before his playing in the subway, Joshua Bell sold out at a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100.

This is a real story. Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste, and priorities of people. The outlines were: in a commonplace environment at an inappropriate hour: Do we perceive beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize the talent in an unexpected context?

One of the possible conclusions from this experience could be:

If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world playing the best music ever written, how many other things are we missing?

Try to deposit a milllion dollars worth of shares of stock in jeans and a t-shirt at a broker. It was the most eye opening experience I have ever faced.

Fun and innovative design ... perhaps there's a way to pull this off in a greener way?

Samsung you're doing it right. More and more companies need to do this.

Definitely an innovative design, though it makes me wonder if it results in tens (hundreds, perhaps) of thousands of users forever forward depending on the manual in order to use any feature on their phone. Greener would be better.

Guessing bing reached into the Microsoft war chest and paid for some exposure on yelp which now uses bing maps on the location detail pages, or perhaps yelp wanted some distance from google after google's places initiative. The color scheme doesn't seem to flow very well. Clicking through to view a bigger map and to get driving directions continues to be powered by google maps.

House is burning, what would you take? A great question and probably an exercise worth going through myself. Funny how many apple devices show up in the photos.

(Wed02) What would you take if your house was burning? Very interesting question. Besides my wife, kids, and dog, I would take my MacBook Pro, hockey skates, and the Kawasaki Swallowtail.

Playing around with the new Vimeo https://vimeo.com/new , which I really like (paradigm shift to focus on the feed concept, makes a lot more sense to me) and came across this incredible trailer which I can only describe as beautiful
https://vimeo.com/31240369 ... Got something to look forward to on 11/14/2012 now.

Are you a student? Are you a teacher? Cool! Adobe has a deal where you can get the full Photoshop CS5 Extended for just $39 bucks! I am not kidding.

OK, it's actually $39.80 but but seriously that is insane! I'm speechless (If you're not in school, it would be worth it to enroll just for this deal). http://vrge.co/yZOHi0
