A Good Speech….

I am lucky enough to know one of the best technology futurists – Mark Anderson of SNS.  He runs the best conference I’ve ever attended:  FiRE, or the Future in Review (yes – it’s even better than science fiction cons).  But that’s a different topic.  He also publishes a newsletter, and a piece of that content was what he hoped would be the speech President Obama would deliver on the jobs issue.  That speech was so good that Mark was asked to make it more widely available. He complied; it’s posted on his blog, A Bright Fire.  It’s worth reading.

Mayan Reading (Watching!): The Fountain

One of the authors whose books I’ve been using for reference in this time period mention Darren Aronofsky’s movie “The Fountain” to me.  It really does seem to mirror the Mayan sense of time, and I liked it very much.  It’s part new age trip, part science fiction, and all love story, complete with some magical cinematography.  It’s very strange in a good way.
