RTOTD – Belief

Friday, March 18th, 2011

Random Thought Of The Day Ok, blog posts have been slim lately because I’ve been busy as all get-out. I constantly have random thoughts that I think, with adequate time, could be expanded into a great blog post. But, today and for the foreseeable future, time is in short supply.

A couple days ago I read the latest h+ Ray Kurzweil interview (pdf), and one part of it stood out for me. RUS: I think when most people think of utopia, they probably just think about everybody being happy and feeling good. RK: I really don‘t think that‘s the goal. I think the goal has […]

Sunday, October 4th, 2009

I was searching for some specs on the new EM4102 replacement chipset and came across an image of my hand and some text from a PC Magazine article published Sept 6th, 2006 on a rant & rave site dedicated to bringing down “big RFID”. The caption on the site said “Mark of the Beast”, but […]

I’m getting more religious emails than usual

Friday, May 12th, 2006

I’ve been trying to track down video dubs and clips from various news segments I’ve been on. It’s either really hard to get the media to respond to you once they’ve used you up, or it’s really expensive to purchase the clips from a news monitor. Kinda lame if you ask me, but I’ve ordered […]
