Who is God?
It is very easy to forget that if I wish to have an ultimate theory (or God, or prime mover, or whatever) that explains or covers everything, then it should cover everything. You know? If God is good, how can he/she be a God if he/she doesn't encompass bad? Or evil? Even of the worst kind? I he/she is being which thinks, shouldn't he/she be able to "think" thoughts of rocks? Atoms? Cows? Dogs? You know? Shouldn't he/she be able to BE a dog? If it is energy, how matter comes into picture? Is it not part of God too? If my theory explains observable how does it cope with unobservable? If true "nothing" doesn't exist, where am I getting the idea of it? Shouldn't my God be at least slightly mad? When someone asks something like "is Big Bang real?", "who is God?", "is there this God and where is he or she?", "is it really truth that there is nothing but energy and space?", looking back at the path I traveled so far, all I can do is smile. Words are powerful, young Jedi, but they are not that powerful. That is what I think.

Isn't everything meaningless without faith in anything beyond this life?
Isn't everything meaningless without faith? Could that be the question? I'm not quite sure.... Lately, "observable, physical world" seems so... OK, to me.... And I can see that "physical" and "observable" doesn't seem to be synonyms... Law of electric charge conservation is observable but not physical. Law of gravity is observable but not physical. And they are all real, aren't they? Isn't that peculiar?

Eric Giler: A demo of wireless electricity
The principals of this have been known for over a century, people have been lighting bulbs and melting steel nuts in their garages for over half a century now with electric and magnetic resonant transformers. The only thing that amazes me here is that these guys figured out that the time has come when we can use this old technology in an actually usable manner. And so they made a product and a company behind it. Now that's an entrepreneurship at it's best! :o)

Jason Fried: Why work doesn't happen at work
I think that people should be educated about how to get work done, and by this I mean things Jason talked about in first half of his speech: how getting work done is a process, just like sleeping, how to manage your work day, why uninterrupted stretch of time is invaluable for getting things done, etc. etc. all these things can be found in numerous time management courses or similar trainings. Introducing no-talk Thursdays and erasing meetings is equivalent to banning Facebook and Youtube. In my opinion it is not the way to go. Don't give a fish to employees, teach them how to catch one. I make my own stretches of time, I get my work done using all those time and work management techniques and people are already used to not interrupt when office door is closed, or to first ask "do you have 5 min now?" or to go away when I say "can we discuss this later?" because I always come at a later time and get with them on short meetings. Just my 5 cents.

Michael Specter: The danger of science denial
Don't mistake science method for science. It's not the same thing. Don't mistake science for industry. It's not the same thing. Knife is a marvelous invention. Don't mistake a knife for a warrior. It's not the same thing. Don't mistake a warrior for a kingdom. It's not the same thing. Would you like all of us to ban knifes? Let no men use knife or any sharp thing ever again? Think about it for a while.
