What do you think of Google's face recognition app? Has Google gone too far?
I've found google ads both helpful and intrusive. I have a similar reaction to this facial recognition technology. But the crucial point here is the "checkbox". Google cannot mess with your privacy without your consent. Sure there are more practical concerns, like the thousands of words in the privacy statement that you will have to read through and understand. However, I see no wrong in this technology. There's always the argument that if the world were such that you couldn't hide anything from it, there would be less to hide.

Do you think more money should be spent to explore space or should it be more spent helping people who are struggling on earth? Why?
As individuals, we might be concerned first and foremost about survival. But if we look at ourselves as a civilization, it seems we need to quench our curiosity. Without our creativity, we would have died of diseases or disasters...Let me offer a scenario. Suppose we discovered extraterrestrial intelligent life. This could shift our understanding of our own existence so much that we would be able to see past many of our differences and unite just enough (out of fear of a possible common enemy) to collectively solve earth's problems. In this case, perhaps scientific exploration in space would contribute more to solving global poverty than any direct effort has so far done... I see value in both investments.

Is there a realistic approach to provide a "comfortable" way of life to every human being on the word? Can the Earth support it?
New kinds of Money? That's interesting. How would that work? How would we define the scope of the different kinds of money? How can we get the whole world, or at least a good chunk of it, to trust the new money? Will there be exchange between the different monies (like foreign exchange)? It seems like an interesting idea. If a large population of people got together and rejected the current form of money, and then established an economy with a different kind of money, then they could assign value to different things differently in this new economy. But would junk food be more expensive than organic food in that economy? Can we use the new monetary system to make sure that it is, if, say, a majority of the population in that economy wants do do so?
