Mark Applebaum: The mad scientist of music
Thanks Piotr, But sorry still noisy to me (dunno if Obama like it)... However if it's all about just doing what you want regardless of what other people think, then I might give that more deep thinking (afcorse not on music).

What is your view on Information Privacy and how it has evolved over the past 20 years?
I personally had many concerns at first, specially on social media sites like Facebook and by the time I had to give up like many others. I think it has been proven that users tend to give up privacy for more free social services... Would that change in the future ? I don't see how! Would "data protection legislators" organizations or governments try to do something about it ?! Perhaps they are the most benefited of these type of data.

How did you first learn to be black or African or what was your earliest memory of learning about blackness/Africaness as different?
Misha, Bob I think you both can be right! The thing here is that when you post some topic on TED conversations you have to know that you have audiences from all around the globe ! different cultures, different histories, and even different type of racism. So for some, it is when they learnt to be colored, for others it is where they came from, or when they learnt to be different or maybe think different...

What I meant to say is that I was "unknowingly" being defensive...even though I didn't experience it much and that he asked me that question because I was African not black! But for me, even on the time I go through few incidents I start to feel sad for "them" rather than me, it is definitely so terrible for their minds not being able to evolve enough to cope up with 21st century... And then I feel sympathy rather than hate. Speaking about movies, this is one of my favorite : "American history X"

What is Information?
" that can be received and understood" , what if we received some form of radio signals from the outer space that we can't understand ??

- American movies! - Yes, I grew up watching American movies and that's when I first knew about it, I am an African and lived most of my life in the middle east and we don't feel much of blackness here. And I don't get to see many "white" until I was in a holiday in 2008 in east Asia. And I was playing pool with some guy from US and once he knew I am African he asked me about my opinion on Obama! Until that moment I felt its fine. But what surprised me later is that I asked him : why did you asked me about Obama "specifically"??. And until now I have no idea of why I did what I did ??!!

What features do u seek in the search engine of the future?
how would you measure reliability & accuracy ? - Imagine that there are 10,000 web pages talks about the subject of "TED Conferences", then definitely (or most likely) that those websites will give a link to ted.com at some point. - These links are considered a VOTE for ted.com from all those webpages. - The site that get the most links is considered as an Elected page for that specific keyword. - That website will get ranked first! Welcome to google page rank !!
