Evangelical Radio Mockering Needs To Take A Break

I have a serious issue with certain so-called Christian radio show hosts. Those who get politically involved, talk as if they heard God’s direct opinion on trivial topics, and tell people it’s OK to hate. Actually, they often imply it’s people’s moral duty to hate. In their opinion, when people love Jesus they must hate […]

Live by the sword: Why leaders cultivate messed up education systems

…and why things will eventually work out in spite of them. When I mean leaders, I mean the visible, media-hogging, attention-craving political, business and religious leaders alike. The ones so loud and heavily promoted that we hear them all the time, whether we want or not. They talk about how messed up the education system […]

Some (not so) subtle differences between intolerance and conviction

Intolerance is plain awful and nobody allows himself to be associated with it, however worthy he is of that. He dodges it (“I don’t have time for this now“), he fakes the opposite (“I don’t really care one way or the other, but…“), he minimizes it (“I have bigger fish to fry“), or simply is […]

The Internet desperately needs cheap, unpopular websites

These are the sites that almost nobody reads until some topic becomes organically relevant. Then there is a spike, people consume the information / opinion, then move on. The blogger serves the greater good of adding something useful to the information flow, and that is good enough for her/him. The readers will sift and judge […]

How big businesses fall

Big businesses fall just like big buildings: under their own weight. They get top-heavy, often have a weak middle, and lack strength and stability at the bottom. But here’s a short list of the symptoms that give away a large company above to fall during the next storm (or even before): It’s top heavy. Too […]

Thoughts on why it is so damn hard to be a real giver

There is a lot of talking and writing about how when we give we actually get a lot more back and other motivational stuff like that.  While that might be true, over-thinking giving is mostly a cover-up for talking ourselves into doing something we’re uncomfortable with: giving.  It makes us think of giving as an […]

A technology missing link makes health providers & insurers very profitable (and nudges me into #occupy mode)

OK, the insurance industry is everyone’s favorite to pick on, because you can pretty much say anything obnoxious about it and be correct. Although my experiences of late have determined that my $1000+/month premium purchases only slightly more than an illusion of coverage for my family, that is not my topic, as it is the […]

I can’t be a successful blogger, and you can too

I can’t be a successful blogger in the way success is traditionally defined: make lots of money, be ubiquitous, be liked, be invited to high-visibility events, make lots of money. However, if success means to share what one is passionate about, regardless of profits and social status…. well, then many of you are already there […]

Was Anonymous & comp predicted 2500 years ago?

OK, this is spooky (and a stretch), but if you mix tech lingo into this symbolic language, there might be something here.  While not a high probability it is an interesting possibility, nothing more   Joel 2:6-10 “…At their presence the peoples are in anguish; all faces are waxed pale. They run like mighty men; […]

Find Me Google mission statement

"Nor do I hold with those who regard it as a presumption if a man of low and humble condition dare to discuss and settle the concerns of princes; because, just as those who draw landscapes place themselves below in the plain to contemplate the nature of the mountains and of lofty places, and in order to contemplate the plains place themselves upon high mountains, even so to understand the nature of the people it needs to be a prince, and to understand that of princes it needs to be of the people. Take then, your Magnificence, this little gift in the spirit in which I send it; wherein, if it be diligently read and considered by you, you will learn my extreme desire that you should attain that greatness which fortune and your other attributes promise."

Nicolo Machiavelli - The Prince
