1) The ideals that have lighted my [Albert Einstein] way: and time after time have given me new courage to face life
cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty and Truth. — Albert Einstein
5) The Wellsprings of Horror in the Cradle: Alice Miller, a 1986 recipient of the Janusz
Korczak Literary Award by the Anti-Defamation League, has sought to
answers to the tragedy of terrorism and the people who perpetrate it.
believes, "On the basis of the research I have done into the childhood
histories of the most ruthless dictators, like Hitler, Stalin, Mao or
Ceaucescu, terrorism in general and the recent horrifying attacks on
United States are a macabre but precise demonstration of what happens
millions and millions of children the world over in the name of good
parenting." She adds that "nobody comes to the world with the wish to
destroy. Every newborn, independently from the culture, religion or
origins needs to love, be loved, protected, and respected. This is his
biological design. If he is maltreated by the cruel upbringing he will
develop the very strong wish to take revenge. He will be driven to
others or himself but only by his history and never by inborn genes.
suppression and subsequent denial of early rage that often ends up in
with an endless number of ideologies." Miller resides in Switzerland
hosts a website www.alice-miller.com where her readers can share their
experiences with others.
7) Who\'s Fast 2002: This year's Who's Fast celebration presents 11 unsung
heroes and rising stars -- high-impact figures from all
walks of life and from all kinds of companies and
organizations. These are neither the most famous people
in business nor the richest. These are people who
matter because of the reach of their ideas and the
depth of their impact -- people who are shaping the
future of strategy, competition, work, and change.
8) Navigating isn\'t fun: To the user, each successive screen is the equivalent of a new window
or dialog in conventional software. My axiom is: "A window is another
room. Have a good reason to go there." If the user is working on
information on one screen, don't send her to another screen to work
on that same information.
9) historia : With this application, you don't write your story chronologically,
from beginning to end. You write your story one memory at a time. The
application takes care of inserting the memory on your 'memory map'
based on the date it took place
10) Relax when you meditate...: Relax when you meditate... just let the body be there, the mind be there, and you are neither. You are a watcher. Watch the body, watch the mind, and remember: you are simply the watcher. Bodies come and go, mind changes every moment, only the watcher remains for eternity. This watcher is your original face.
12) ANTI-TOXINS DON'T EXIST. THAT'S JUST MEDICAL PROPAGANDA.: Only the living body heals itself. Antitoxins don't exist. They are a
lie fabricated and marketed by the pharmaceutical industry.
When you water fast, i.e., physiologically rest, and do not
ingest "necessary nutrients", from where does the living body get
its "necessary nutrients" and successfully heal itself, of all kinds
of health problems?
13) I would encourage you, from the bottom of my heart, to follow with complete sincerity the path that inspires you most.: I would encourage you, from the bottom of my heart, to follow with complete sincerity the path that inspires you most.
14) TIJ, Peer-Reviewed Article: What Do We Know About Enhancing Creativity and Innovation?: Ikujiro Nonaka: Making personal knowledge available to others is the
central activity of the knowledge-creating company
15) Wired 8.04: Why the future doesn\'t need us.: Our most powerful 21st-century technologies - robotics, genetic
engineering, and nanotech - are threatening to make humans an
16) Life On The Internet: Could Blogging Assist KM?: But what if the two – blogging and KM – got together? That is, what if we took the technology that allows Bloggers to quickly annotate their journeys through the web with information about the whys and wherefores with a KM system that allowed their organizational colleagues to use the weblogs as a source of expertise? Consider:
-- If experts could use blogging software that was part of their normal work environment, probably part of their browser, to note and annotate web sites they wanted to share as part of their area of expertise (note the expert decides what to share, avoiding privacy problems);
17) Women and Men: (And I don’t have any issues relating to women. My closest friends are women. And given the choice, I much prefer the company of women to men. They usually have a better sense of humour and are much more fun to hang around with.)
My doing the ZopeNewbies site got me an invitation to speak at Comdex
Canada, one thing led to another, and I got a promotion at work.
19) The Standard: Get With The Program: Curl just might revolutionize the way Web sites are made. Who thinks
so? Tim Berners-Lee. The Software Development Forum audience in the
Palo Alto, Calif., community center was one tough crowd. Before
attempting to sell the hard-core programmers on his groundbreaking
Curl software, Brent Young made sure his company's pedigree was high
in his PowerPoint display. There on the second slide, listed as a
founder, was "Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web." "HTML
is good for what it does. Java is good for what it does," Young
declared. "What the Web needs is a merger of the two." Curl, he
claimed, will deliver everything these ubiquitous Internet languages
offer and more.
22) www.oreilly.com -- In Memory of Frank Willison: Of all of us at O'Reilly, Frank is the one we'd most have imagined
growing old and grandfatherly, dispensing to successive generations
the wisdom, humor and caring that he shared with all of us. He is (I
use the present tense deliberately) one of those people who is an
inspiration to us all, someone who demonstrates convincingly how to
be a wonderful human being.
23) Start-up crusader keeps the Silicon Valley spirit: "Investors are looking for four qualities: hard-core science and
technology; a strong core of a management team with experience;
identifiable potential customers with money; and a believable
business model. In the past, if you were missing some of these
qualities, you could still get funded. Now, you have to have just
about everyone of them."
24) Seven LEAN Years: Trying to get a "good" job -- that is to say, a job that is above the
national median income of approximately $14 per hour as of 1998 -- is
getting harder and harder for a surprising new demographic in
America. While the conventional wisdom and the media "talking heads"
keep on droning endlessly about a supposed "high-tech labor
shortage," the reality of the labor situation in the early twenty-
first century is far different from a shortage. The truth about the
economic desolation of the American middle class is being hidden by a
barrage of press releases emanating from professional spin-doctors
who have an agenda that is in opposition to aspirations of the
mainstream American high-tech worker.
25) Andy Pearson Finds Love: Twenty years ago, as CEO of PepsiCo, Andy Pearson was named one of the 10 toughest bosses in America. Now at Tricon, Pearson has found a new way to lead -- one based on personal humility and employee recognition.
"There's a big difference between being tough and being
-- Andy Pearson, founding chairman of Tricon Global
27) Observing Without the \"Me\", Krishnamurti, Brockwood Park, 9/5/70: It is always difficult to keep simple and clear. The world worships success, the bigger the better; the greater the audience the greater the speaker; the colossal super buildings, cars, aeroplanes and people. Simplicity is lost. The successful people are not the ones who are building a new world. To be a real revolutionary requires a complete change of heart and mind, and how few want to free themselves. One cuts the surface roots; but to cut the deep feeding roots of mediocrity, success, needs something more than words, methods, compulsions. There seem to be few, but they are the real builders--the rest labor in vain.
28) Inspired People Do Inspired Work !: Job #1 is to take care of the one thing we have sole custody over,
our heart. Our heart possesses a superior knowledge of how to keep us
inspired. Your heart will lead you to the places where you feel most
alive, and become your best.
29) Book recommendations for potential writers?: Reading New Yorker magazine every week is probably more than enough
if you want to keep up with what is good modern writing. Personally,
I prefer Edith Wharton and her generation, but that's not a style
that is likely to get one published in any modern magazine.
31) Amazon.com: buying info: Built to Last: ...the organizations who "get it" understand the power of this blending - basic research, applied engineering, talking to the people from whom you wish to take money (ie, customers). a great example of that outside the computer/communications biz is 3M.
there's a book, "Built to Last", which i'm told looks at some
companies and finds several very counter-intuitive results. i won't suggest
it's right or wrong, but it seems thought-provoking...

32) Tagline Blues: What\'s the Site About? (Alertbox July 2001): A website's tagline must explain what the company does and what makes
it unique among competitors. Two questions can help you assess your
own tagline: Would it work just as well for competitors? Would any
company ever claim the opposite?
The cause is, amongst others, the injustices drawn from a system that
gives patent and copyright protection for periods of time that are
unreasonable. Resulting in situations like Pfizer having recouped all
research and production investments for one of the AIDS tri-therapy
drugs in 6 months - leaving them another 19.5 years of gouging while
African nations cannot afford the drug and see their populations
NST is an extremely powerful multidimensional technique, which has
been specifically developed for the ongoing dynamic integration of
the structure and viscera via stimulation of the central, peripheral
autonomic nervous systems.
The main objective is to remove pain and dysfunctional physiological
conditions by restoring the structural integrity of the body.
In essence NST provides the body with an opportunity to reintegrate
on many levels, and thus return to and maintain normal homeostatic
limits on a daily basis.
40) ArsDigita Systems Journal: Managing Software Engineers: ...Insane hours by themselvs don't guarantee success of course. You
need to be
solving a problem that someone cares about. You need to have
evaluate themselves by how well their work fits customer needs (the
your engineers pat themselves on the back for how good their code
internally is the day that your company dies; you need engineers who
themselves on the back when a customer is happy with the product and
41) Osho: Only a ripe fruit falls: One of the greatest problems...it will appear very paradoxical, but
this is true: before you can lose your ego, you must attain it. Only
a ripe fruit falls to the ground.
Ripeness is all. An unripe ego cannot be thrown, cannot be destroyed.
And if you struggle with an unripe ego to destroy and dissolve it,
the whole effort is going to be a failure. Rather than destroying it,
you will find it more strengthened in new subtle ways.
This is something basic to be understood: the ego must come to a
peak, it must be strong, it must have attained an integrity -- only
then can you dissolve it. A weak ego cannot be dissolved. And this
becomes a problem.
42) Joel on Software - Good Software Takes Ten Years. Get Used To It.: "Now the trouble comes when you can't think of any new features, so you put in the paperclip, and then you take out the paperclip, and you try to charge people both times, and they aren't falling for it."
I have to read it carefully before I agree or partially agree or ...
43) JK on 'how to realise eternal reality: It is through self-knowledge, not through belief in somebody else's
words, that a man comes to the eternal
reality, in which his being is grounded.
44) Squirrels and People...: Dave : 'Patrick Scoble, age 7, came for a visit on Sunday with his
father Robert. Patrick is impressed with the squirrels in my forest.
He wanted to know if the they take their orders from me. I said no,
they don't even know I exist, and if they did they certainly wouldn't
care what I think.'
45) Joel Barker: ...Vision with action can change the world...: Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just
passes time. Vision with action can change the world. A true leader
must first see an idea as opportunity, then choose to act upon it.
47) REALITY RESET: "It's the Thought That Counts": "OK, now stay with me on this. One of the big limitations of law enforcement has always been that you can only arrest people for what they do, not for what they might think about doing."
"Well, naturally," I said, "You can't know what people are thinking. And even if you could know, it's criminal actions that can be prosecuted, not thoughts."
"Ah! That's where you're dead wrong, Lauren! We may not be able to
extract people's thoughts yet, but we can easily infer their thoughts
from what they write down," said Harvey.
48) Enlightenment, the only cruise you can book that doesn't cost anything...: Enlightenment, the only cruise you can book that doesn't cost
anything (it costs Everything) and doesn't go anywhere (You're
49) w3future.com - article - higher order programming: Higher Order Programming is the ability to use functions as values.
So you can pass functions as arguments to other functions and
functions can be the return value of other functions. This style of
programming is mostly used in functional programming, but it can also
be very useful in 'regular' object oriented programming. A good
example of this is the Ruby Scripting Language, which combines all
the advantages of pure object oriented programming and higher order
programming. Sadly, Ruby is not supported by any browser, so it
it can be extended to make higher order programming a helpful tool in
50) Distributed membership and preferences: Membership and preferences standards are a hot topic among
independent developers, because of Microsoft's Passport, which is in
rapid deployment now.
Developers are now faced with a choice -- support Microsoft's
membership system, and thereby feed customers to them, or develop an
open, clonable and decentralized system, so that membership is a
competitive space, not owned by one or two large companies.
