+Noel Yap mmhmm.
I think that if we could have an informal agreement on a percentage of income after costs of living are subtracted that each person should give to help other people.. Like it or not.
(I haven't thought it through, though)
(Informally enforced, and there are likely many exceptions)

Then there should be measures on effectiveness of charity. xP

"When superstorm Sandy hit the Brooklyn neighbourhood of Red Hook and the power went down, the OTI already had an experimental meshnet in place. The US Federal Emergency Management Agency managed to plug its high-bandwidth satellite uplink into it and instantly provided connectivity to the community and the Red Cross relief organisation."

"I believe if you hurt one person, I think that kind of hurts another person...which hurts another, and so on.

I think hurting someone damages the society -the world you live in. But, generally only a miniscule amount. But with so many people in the world being bitches to others.. it adds up to a whole lot of hurt."

+Garrett Wolf For a project like Solar Roadways, $1 million is a ridiculous amount, they should chase something like $50 million to start with. But for this, they should chase the best VCs like +John Doerr, +Vinod Khosla, +Google Ventures or +Bill Gates. Which means they shouldn't claim they want to keep the company private...

Has a good selection of things that you'd otherwise have to order online. The floor people can get talkative, which is okay as long as they're explaining, but not if they're trying sell you something. I do NOT recommend the rocketfish brand, though.
