Free is not for nothing

“If you’ve never experienced it, “free” just seems like a lower number on a slider that has “half-price” in the middle. But free is not a number…

“Free” is something different than “less.” And free is not less than cheap. It’s something else entirely.

Instead of education, try thinking about love. There are people who pay for love. Some pay a lot, some pay a little. But let’s be honest: everyone knows that the moment you start paying anything, it’s not just love plus money. It’s something else entirely, and the problems in paying aren’t solved by paying less than others.”

I have always been an immense devotee of The behavioural scientist Dan Ariely. The manner in which he exposes and deconstruct characteristics in our behaviour which we would describe as profoundly human, but in the eye of modern science the extent of our flaws become almost comical. Especially when we try to convince ourselves otherwise. It clearly demystifies the whole theology around rationality and effectivity according to Ayn Rand.

perfect happiness

“ Sooner or later in life everyone discovers that perfect happiness is unrealizable, but there are few who pause to consider the antithesis: that perfect unhappiness is equally unattainable. ”

– Primo Levi

growing uncertainty

Today’s belief in ineluctable certainty is the true innovation-killer of our age.

Neal Stephenson argues that in business, as in science, cultivating a capacity for uncertainty and the unknown is essential to innovation.

David Simon has a blog!

“A free internet is wonderful for democratized, unresearched commentary, and it works well as a library of sorts for content that no longer needs a defense of its copyright. But journalism, literature, film, music — these endeavors need people operating at the highest professional level and they need to make a living doing what they do. Copyright matters. Content costs.”

brainstorming

Decades of research have consistently shown that brainstorming groups think of far fewer ideas than the same number of people who work alone and later pool their ideas.

Collapse

Thomas Jefferson said you have to be ready in order to preserve the vitality of your liberty and your freedom, to defend it, nothing by overthrowing anything else except for what you’ve been holding in your head, that may not be applicable anymore. We’ve gotten very lazy, where many generations are overdue for revolution, and are thinking. I’m not talking about blood and violence, although I’m afraid that’s already happening. I’m talking about a revolution that’s probably the hardest kind. The kind that takes place in the human soul, in the human mind

Douglas Rushkoff on Occupy Wallstreet

The more familiar something looks, the less threatening it seems. This is why images of funny-looking college students marching up Broadway or shirtless boys banging on drums comprise the bulk of the imagery we see of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Stock brokers look on, police man the barricades, and what appears to be a traditional protest movement carries on another day, week, or month. “

This is not a protest but a prototype
