And by synchronicity, I watched this right after writing that last trainwreck of an entry. (All my posts are trainwrecks of thought, in my opinion.)
Anyone interested, watch this video:
A wonderful look at how technology may (will) be able to allow the human experience to manage both breaches unto the whole of society, as well as organising experiences by which we can navigate our own personal transformations.
It is the latter I want to focus on in the coming years…
EDIT — My friend Scott, in Vancouver, has sent me a reference to the above video, stating that "It's funny that Snow Crash called the idea of a paying info-exchange way back when." So for anyone interested check out that novel, by Neal Stephenson. I've heard nothing but good about it.
Also, I just came across this via Invisibile College II and it has to do with the previous post dealing with androids. I know it's been around the internet already, but for posterity's (and irony's) sake you can read about the robot modelled after Philip K. Dick that has recently gone missing, link.
