Obama Derangement Syndrome Leads to Politicians Anonymous

America started down the path of deranged politics about twenty years before the United States Constitution was baptized as a non-religious document.  With independence declared and a new country emerging the political debate began.  Some wanted the new CEO of The United States to be a monarch – an official King.  Some said Emperor.  Reason […]

Why Fear Matters

Al Quaeda, the terrorist organization founded and run by Osama Bin Laden, has set the standard of values for many of the radical right wing in America.  Do unto others as they have done unto you seems the common refrain – a refrain based in fear.   This is a remarkable mentality given two precepts […]

The Changing Face of Etiquette

As we, our culture, are catered to by technology and the marketing machine, we begin to feel more entitled to the things that we consume and the benefits of our service industry. The idea of serving others is lost on those who become complacent with being served themselves.

The Future Is Not What It Used To Be

I studied electronics at The Electronics Institute in Kansas City. That was a long time ago. We studied vacuum tubes. Vacuum tube radios and television and radar systems. It was the dawn of the transistor – we talked about transistors in class, and experimented with diodes in building full-wave bridge power supplies. Resonant circuits were […]

The Irony of Google Advertising

We operate in a Google world. When the lawyers on Boston Legal want to research something they say, ‘let’s Google it.’ I wrote a post on Googling my name to search my family tree. This online magazine is closely associated with Google. We allow Google to generate advertising based on our content. The results are […]

THe Finer Points of Space Exploration

I was eight years old when the Soviet Union launched the first orbiting Satellite, sputnik. The space race began as a competition of pride between two countries determined to prove them selves as more advanced than the other. It became something of much greater importance. Our space exploration has produced, energized, and accelerated some of […]

CNN’s Hologram – Cool Techonology

Well, this about takes the cake.  Technology is advancing rapidy – but look at this – you still have to read these words.  That is about as old as Abraham.  The differencs is that we have people from Hobart, Australia, reading this commentary.  They might be rednecks but they are able to use the internet.

Jon Stewart on color in the race, and Karl Rove

Son, Jon Stewart has really got it going. The election process is better for him than it is for us. Stewart has the ability to merge the written word, the spoken word, and video images. He is particularly adept at pointing out the obvious. The Television Networks, including cable, have gone to extremes to showcase […]

Roswell Secrets sold to China

Son, Technology has seen exponential growth in the past fifty years. Proponents of conspiracy theories believe that the space ship that crashed in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947 provided the stimulus. There is more evidence that this is true. The Legitimate Conspiracy Theory (LCT) cyberspace magazine to be published in the future has unearthed evidence […]

The paradox of Steve Jobs

Son, I have written several posts on Steve Jobs and Apple, Inc.  Some people take offense – that is only healthy.  Steve Jobs is a real study in innovation, technology, business, and personality.  All of these combine to produce a final product. If Steve Jobs had been more flexible as a business man in 1979 […]

Apple Computer – failure of marketing

Son, As you know I have worked in technology since 1969. I remember in the early 80’s when I was working in Health Care Information Systems. We used mainframe computers – but could not deny the emerging world of the personal computer – the PC. Notice how easy that was to write, PC – Personal […]

Apple Inc. – Highway Reststop

Son, Steve Jobs, inventor, entrepreneur, corporate mogul, marketing wizard, philanthropist – what has he done? Apple Computer has created a stop along the highway, a place where weary travelers in the daily journey through technology can stop in and refresh themselves. This is an old story. The human relationship with technology is the outward manifestation […]

Fortunately for all of us – we have a government of laws, guided by a constitution. Keep your own faith and be active in the political process. Have faith that the world is actually getting better – some days it doesn’t feel like it – but humanity is progressing in the concept of civilization.
