Mohammed comes to the Mountain

28 Jul , 2010 Uncategorized

(reprinted from here) Hi Everyone, It’s been just over 3 weeks now since my return as CEO, and I think I’ve gotten up to speed enough to begin communicating with you in a useful way. This post is an update on what we are doing, and also to announce an in-world meeting where I’ll extend […]

Party is over guys !

28 Jul , 2010 Uncategorized

The golden era is ending and Americans (and Europeans) are being shoved into the ovens. Nukes have gotten us nowhere since we ascribed to competition-based paradigm. Total dependence on foreign oil has gotten us all in shit creek. Slavish devotion to a ‘winner takes all’ paradigm has made us into, well, not the winner. America […]

It was an industrial revolution – foamwelding. So, what was it, this ‘foamwelding’ ? In short the Indians came up with it and it had started spreading all throughout the archipellago in the last months. Previous construction costs were counted in ‘adjusted euro’, and the typical L4 habitat cost a fortune. Terasem 1 was one […]

Time approaches for me to get connected again :)) Art work found on Renderosity, artwork by Kayleyss. Brrrreathtaking – and all the wholesome creamy goodness of Asari and Twileks rolled into one!

We can live like this one day …

26 Jul , 2010 Uncategorized

Second Life is a medium depicting, in pathetic low resolution and detail, a world. It is an inconsistent world, much like loose sand and a frayed tapestry. All things happen in a loose web of personal relationships, with no destination and little greater context. There is barely any scarcity, and value and values are fleeting […]

Global Basic Income, what is it?

26 Jul , 2010 Uncategorized

Reprinted from here. DO read the comments on this article by serendipity because that’s where the action is :)) Basic: a basic income is a guaranteed minimum income. On top of this ‘basic’ minimum people can earn an income by working, just as they do now. A basic income constitutes the basis of a social […]

Some postsingular (!?) terminology

25 Jul , 2010 Uncategorized

In response to this post: … Yes indeed 🙂 I can give you another bunch of dualities and considerations…. * the spectrum of minds that are an extension of another meme, (i.e. minds that like gaga so much they prefer to be her and forget about being their birth-identity (which I will here label *Idceptity* […]

Entitlements – a difficult debate.

24 Jul , 2010 Uncategorized

My sweet friend Serendipity wrote this in comments regarding an earlier article: A right to a decent standard of living? To be provided by whom? By those who created enough value that they received enough value in return for to not need such a guarantee? By forcing those others who are the current producers and […]

The Great Wall

21 Jul , 2010 Uncategorized

I urge prudence and caution with regards to China. Whereas China may be having an economic growth more than three times the economic growth rates anywhere else, I pose this level of growth to be caused by authoritarian measures, low wages, lawlessness and unfair competition. Free, democratic and transparant societies cannot ever hope to compete […]

Is a Singularity Plausible (ref – Extropia DaSilva) ?

17 Jul , 2010 Uncategorized

Responding to my “sister blog“, by Extropia DaSilva, I can have to share the following observations: (Hi Trophy!) I will rewrite/clean up parts of this post in the next days Technological Singularity: Is such a thing possible? No doubt all of you have come across people who think not, but what does it actually mean […]

600th study released showing huge wealth disparity (quoted)

13 Jul , 2010 Uncategorized

Reprinted from here, (By Allison Kilkenny) It seems like we see this same study every month. The gap between the wealthiest Americans and middle- and working-class Americans has more than tripled in the past three decades, according to a June 25 report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. Yeah, but we’ve known that […]

I can be so much more

13 Jul , 2010 Uncategorized

In all your travels, have you ever seen a star super-nova? No. Well I have. I saw a star explode and send out the building blocks of the universe. Other stars, other planets, and, eventually, other life… a supernova. Creation itself. I was there, I wanted to see it, and be part of the moment. […]

By Melinda Burns Who’s responsible for the poor? Back in the reign of the first Queen Elizabeth, English lawmakers said it was the government and taxpayers. […]

Protecting your children from organized online predation

10 Jul , 2010 Uncategorized

It has become necessary that as a proactive, humanist parent your protect your children from online predators. A new means to do precisely that is by means of godblock, a software tool that keeps out the habitually deceptive and deluded from manipulating your loved ones in to pathological parodoleia. I strongly recommend you look into […]

Acronym – TISFKAT

5 Jul , 2010 Uncategorized

Hey Zobeid! (SoBeIt) I was recently made aware that the term ‘teabagger’ is regarded by some as an insulting slur, used by ‘liberals’ to negatively portray a certain movement active in the US. Now myself being ‘eurotrash’, what is my business referring to said movement X in anyway? Well – I personally have after some […]

IMVU

Today I was suppose to hang out with an amazing guy, Simon, at his aikido BBQ. I thought I had lived extremely modest the last days but still, I got only 20 euro left on my bank account, so I hadda skip out on that one – which still gnaws at me, because, yanno, my […]

Not a Bubble but a Tsunami – the coming surge of virtual reality

4 Jul , 2010 Uncategorized

Being a career hysteric and dramaturge I am prone to exaggerating, hyperbole or ‘as some say’ a brickbat, I can’t help but wave loudly anytime I read something that gives me hope. So again with this article, written by Dusan Writer which I will reprint in full here. No I didn’t ask Dusan for permission […]

Cluster Headaches

3 Jul , 2010 Uncategorized

Indulge me a bit of self-pity for a second. A few hours ago I had a moderate Cluster Headache attack. It’s OK, didn’t last long and the neighbours didn’t call the police (I tend to scream). I suppose this is the price I pay for being this fabulous. Having them, about oh 2-3 times a […]

Movie Pitch – Scar, Stripe and the Far City

3 Jul , 2010 Uncategorized

I had this dream tonight. It’s warm over here IRL, temperatures in the 30s, and nights are short, fevered and sweaty. I had a late pizza last night (couldn’t eat anything all day) and that always gives me restless dreams. This night the dream was a little more graphic than usual. I am going to […]
