John Paul Getty Museum of L.A.

Natalie and I went to The Getty Museum in Los Angeles on Thursday.  For anyone who doesn’t know about this place, it is one of America’s premiere museums.  With both resident pieces and exhibits, the Getty always has something amazing to see.  And it is free!  For more info check out: Getty.edu
Here are a few pieces that we saw.

Albert Hoffman dies at 102

Albert Hoffman, the man who first synthesized LSD in 1938 has died at the age of 102.  He called LSD his “problem child”.  LSD has been one of our cultures Great Catalysts and it is a shame that its use is currently prohibited.  Albert Hoffman, thank you for broadening my horizons.

Build your own multitouch table for $500 – $1000

‘Engineers at Eyebeam, an art and technology center based in New York, have created a scaled-down open-source version of Surface, called Cubit. By sharing the Cubit’s hardware schematics and software source code, the engineers are significantly reducing the cost of owning a multitouch table. But they’re also fostering innovation by giving engineers an open platform on which to develop novel multitouch applications–something that they’ve previously lacked.
Engineers are building inexpensive, tabletop, touch-screen displays and sharing the instructions online. Addie Wagenknecht, a fellow at Eyebeam, designed Cubit in an attempt to “demystify multitouch.” She and her collaborator Stefan Hechenberger “wanted to prove that anyone could build [a multitouch table] if they had a few simple things,” she says. In addition to making Cubit software available online, Wagenknecht is selling various do-it-yourself kits that include parts and instructions, aimed at people with a range of engineering skills. Putting together a personal multitouch table could cost anywhere from $500 to $1,000, depending on the type of hardware used, Wagenknecht says.’

Thanks to Technology Review for the story.

The Greatest Revenge is Success

There’s blood in the water, and the sharks are circling. Why is it that when you mess up in this world, there is always someone there to make money? Why is it that when you are sick, there is always someone there to make money? Why is it that when God touches your heart, there is always someone there to make money? Our worlds belief structure creates a self perpetuating vicious cycle of greed and fear. Everyone alive has had a moment where they were down, whether physically or spiritually. Its what you do when you are down that this is all about. Most people break when they are down. They give up, succumb to control, and admit defeat. They allow their lives and energy to be leached off of by the vampires who set this whole system up. Most people become bitter, dwelling on what could have been, or stewing with envy and rage at someone who threw them off course. They forget that light kills Vampires… To have someone tell you about climbing a mountain is one thing, but to climb the mountain yourself, that is a whole other story. Tribulation brings understanding, and understanding brings true compassion. And The Compassionate ONE is what this world is starving for. The Compassionate ONE drives the sharks and vampires away with the power of thought, voice, and action. The power of inner light. Cry not for yourself, cry for the millions oppressed worldwide. Sing the Song of Their Liberty! Take the fear and greed of the vampires and sharks and let it fire up your will to succeed! For the Greatest Revenge is Success!

Visions of the Future: The Intelligence Revolution. With Michio Kaku

Will computers think for themselves? Will humans be able to reprogram our own biology, making us “super human”? Will our kids be born into a world where every item is “smart”. Michio Kaku, another one of my favorite modern philosophers and Great Minds tackles these questions in Visions of the Future: The Intelligence Revolution

This video does a great job illustrating the vast changes underway on our world. By 2020 a microchip with the computing power of a modern cellphone will cost about $.01. As this draws nearer, chips will begin to be embedded in everything truly leading to the “ubiquity era” with thousands of computers per user. Humans will then (if not already) begin hard-wiring our minds with more processing power and altering our DNA to dramatic results. Humans may no longer be Homo Sapien and may self selectively evolve into Cyber Sapiens.

THE SINGULARITY IS NEAR!

Question of the Day:
Do you think humans will achieve this great change in our very essence?

Moe’s Alley was a success!

Big Thanks to Moe’s Alley for a great show on Tue. night!  Much love to Junior Boogie, and all of our friends who came out on a cold and rainy Tuesday to help make this a special event.  This was our first time back at Moe’s in 3 years, and it was an amazing show.  Russell sat in on keyboard and the sound was mixed excellent.  ClayChollar of Constant Creations Studio added amazing visuals with his live graphic art.  If anyone has any pictures of the show, please email them to me at theomegaproject@onebox.com .

JAH LOVE ETERNAL!

Being Human: Human Computer interaction in 2020

Microsoft just released the report on their 2007 conference Being Human: Human-Computer interaction in the year 2020.  When a heavyweight like Microsoft throws their weight behind a concept, no longer does Ray Kurzweil seem so “fringe”.  Human-Computer interaction is indeed going to change Microsoft argues, going from the Mobility Era (with multiple computers per user) into the Ubiquity era (with thousands of computers per user).   This is a landmark report. Microsoft is a multi-billion dollar a year company, and with them openly touting a new OS called “Singularity” and releasing reports on “Human-Computer Interaction”, it is now only a matter of time before the public at large acknowledge and accept the undergoing changes worldwide.  Have no doubt my friends, THE SINGULARITY IS NEAR…
