At the 2014 Buddhist Geeks Conference, Mikey Siegel offered this “thought exercise” on the end game of the Meditation+Technology movement. That is, if everyone was incredibly successful with the all the new technology efforts, this is as simple as “enlightenment” can possibly be. (I don’t know if you can achieve enlightenment without effort, but I suppose this is an ideal.)
As a short note, I like the “add one event at a time” UI widget in the Mac OS X Calendar application. There are some other things I don’t like in the Add New Event UI, but I do like that concept, even though it is a little hidden.
Wow, from this story on Bloomberg, IBM is paying more than $1.5B to get out of the chip business. For me this hits home because I remember that IBM thought the PowerPC chip would be a competitor to Intel’s chips back in the day.
