"It seems to me that we need to make a choice. We should either expect an organization like the Red Cross to serve only a band-aid function, or we should allow it to build an organization that can grow and adapt to create longer-term change. We should either ask organizations like the Red Cross to simply deliver aid and move on, or we should stop criticizing them for the failures and costs of trying to do something more ambitious."




What bothers me about my 8-foot commute to the garage isn't loneliness (the green anoles keep me company) it's not getting out in the world.

I wanted to be really clear that the job descriptions for everybody were different, so you would not have this endemic conflict. I think that was very powerful.

Interesting that this initiative against excessive occupational licensing, co-founded by Jason Furman, Chairman of Obama's Council of Economic Advisors, uses electricians as an example of an occupation for which government licensing is necessary. Years ago Donald J. Boudreauxpointed me to a study showing that the higher the standards of occupational licensing in a state the more likely were home fires - presumably because the more costly the rate of hiring electricians, due to higher barriers of entry, the greater the probability that people would do their electrical work themselves.

Art is essential to every movement. Art has the capacity to reach people that would otherwise go unreached. Music should be more than social. Music should have a component that drives it to be sacred, spiritual, stimulating, stirring, soothing. Every movement should have an aspect of art that imitates life. I want to appreciate Brother Skipp Coon this morning for providing me with a thorough artistic analysis & challenge to get me in a certain zone this morning. The Sophomore Slump & that Miles Garvey albums got me right & ready to take on the challenges that I face today. Stay true to your principle & keep putting out the art that reflects that fam.
wow... just wow...

There is no time when we are not being observed, so we have no possibility to prepare for it, 
sounds like he's saying this is bad.. but is it? maybe it's good - to swim in improv.. no?
“Self-examination,” Mumford assumes, can only occur when we believe no one else is watching; only then can we see ourselves as we are and not in terms of our performance for others.
or - when we know they could be watching.. but most likely aren't .. no?
The development of a self doesn’t precede that quest for relevance; it may instead stem from it.

Soli is a small chip that would enable users to control their devices without making physical contact with them. Using radar signals, the chip picks up certain hand gestures and converts them to actions on the device. For instance, the volume on a device can be controlled by sliding the forefinger back and forth across the surface of the thumb, while touching the tip of the forefinger on the thumb would equate to a 'click' or pressing of a button
