How does gender affect formulation of opinion based on perception?
Ang eating at a restaurant is also gender neutral. Most gender conversations are intent to subjugate men to a view that men are emotionally inept or lack a developmental emotional perspective that makes them less qualified to raise children or is used to define men negatively. Questions like why aren't more women... and you can pick any industry that operates on the perspective that any man in those industries is keeping women out. So are gender neutral choices optimal for men? No. Gender discussions or political correctness is a failed platform the same as laws preventing women from voting or owning property. It creates innuendo and discourse. The expectation of a man or a woman having a loving relationship is gender neutral. On having a family, of doing well at any grade level. The minute that social contract is challenged and we become single. Issues of fairness and equality is discourse to what was once the same goals for both sexes.

Ideas to save water at home. I have one, collecting rainwater... what else?
Alexis, I discovered this product and it has been the best device I have used to save water. I cannot compliment the design team anymore than recommend it if you want to save water. It isn't the high pressure spray that has been the norm for water saving attachments and I highly recommend this product. Delta Faucet 75152 Water Amplifying Adjustable Showerhead with H2OKINETIC Technology, Chrome.

Modernism is now a historic style, what is the future of architecture in an increasingly uncertain world?
I think the clean lines and uncluttered open spaces of the past 50 years are giving way to architecture that incorporates cultural themes. Some structures although futuristic are confronting the boundaries of physical forces limiting the structures design or forcing new engineering feats DE-acompli. Those seem rare to the government office norms we appreciate. Veranda's-decks, hidden alcoves, water features, contrasting materials, incorporated creative pieces all are the mix for blending a workable space as a home space.

The benifits of Accelerators within the Startup Community? Who do you trust?
Open Source media has forced traditional product development corporations into being proactive for the next big hit. You can't just wait for the client to come to you. You now have to recruit them and offer the protections as if it was your product being developed. As a pass through shop the incubator or accelerator must include competence in it's platform and outreach. Cities started trying to emulate the Silicon Valley model by providing business space and some grant money but the best trend to market a new product is to introduce it to persons who innovate. My experience has been to follow a startup from beginning to maturity with the downsides and upsides. I think to answer your question the accelerators are there to help themselves succeed and that helps others yet to innovate to succeed. Ideas are everywhere, just an ounce of inspiration and a pound of perspiration. by Someone Famous

How disruptive will large scale entrepernuership be as the world becomes more interconnected?
I am somewhat confused by the term entrepreneurship. If following disruptive technologies you will find a bell curve of innovators-early adopters-early majority-late majority-laggards. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/45/DiffusionOfInnovation.png Some countries like France are trying to make up for lost innovations in several industries by creating more robust business incubator developments. China also wants to move from being a late majority culture to its current status as an early adopter to being an innovator. Brazil is probably closest to being an innovator but has a majority of it's population in late majority or laggard category. That hasn't stopped it from innovating. Android is the leading open source software installed on the majority of phones which has the power of a personal computer. Linex was suppose to be that open source code but with PC's becoming obsolete it missed the opportunity and didn't have a world class corporate base to make it attractive. Entrepreneurship is about having some skin in the game. As you see how the U.S. has lost a great deal of mfg base but gaining back processes after factors of higher wages and the logistics to move the product. Developing countries are also contributing to business processes by discouraging piracy, or counterfeit products, and encouraging clean environments, which is the skin in the game for them to experience the benefits of first world market advantages.

Which invention of the 20th century is most important to life today?
There is really only one invention of the 20th century and that is the jet engine. I believe it was the invention that made us believe we could fly to the moon. It shortened the distance between two points from days to hours. I know this invention is probably on the low list and tech or biology developments will be favored. Jet engines have transformed us by pushing the boundaries of what is known in speed and intelligence. It's spurred development of other products including the transistor and computers. Imagine for the moment what our lives would be without jet travel. Cannot be imagined. This was why jihadest used jets to make their anti technology statement.

How does gender affect formulation of opinion based on perception?
Ang, I think the differences we perceive between ourselves sexually are what allows us to mate. We have sex with a great number of persons but mate with 2 -4 persons and typically it is the first person whom we mate with that we consider our only mate. Gender neutralizing environments? Does that mean a less strenuous trial for a female to what was the standard for males? Gender neutral environments can mean co-ed facilities in dorms or inclusion in sports programs for females. Would a male volleyball player on an all female team be an advantage?. And a female on an all male team be a disadvantage? A Political correct architecture should be able to predict and effect change for the benefit of both sexes to excel and as you point out it just seems to grope around our bodies hoping to stimulate either sex into an acceptance of the act. Coleen and Carolyn what are your thoughts to this? Does maturity and a life lived with and without males have any meaning past the child bearing years?

Why do we criticize stupid people?
Reading the comments there seems to be a conclusion that stupid people exist to torment the more mentally agile. But I offer this. That a good majority of comedy that we enjoy has its roots in just how stupid we are at various times. Comedy is suppose to be what differentiates us from the animals. It could be said that political correctness to use that phrase when Bill Clinton was president made us all up tight and humorless. Its dangerous legacy is still with us.

Lawrence Lessig: The unstoppable walk to political reform
Lessig's talk would have been more persuasive if he would have included the movement that took place dubbed the tea party. For better or worse he should have included it when talking about a peoples movement. It seems his interest in political reform has to be done by Lester ville creator an provocateur, Lessig, who has appointed granny and the citizenry of the great state of NH to codify his notions of what is right and wrong. He doesn't mention butch'ng up current laws or with his legal mind offer a tangible solution. He is like the complainers for a better education system who are all products of that system, who made good. I like Lessig and appreciate he is one of the good guys. I just wish he would have pushed aside his Yankee Doolittle spin for a more comprehensive look at political reform. Like getting all the fringe groups to stop attacking good policies even it it differs with their political faith.
