  1. My question is why I can't get more than 4 hours on my blackberry battery?
  2. I'm sure there is tecnology out there that can get you 20+ hours out of your blackberr but RIMM doesn't want to produce it (for whatever reason).
    Just like the technology to produce an all electric sports car using laptop batteries is out there:
    but the automakers don't want to produce it (for whatever reason).

  3. may i suggest terrence mckenna's studies on this topic. although often acid drenched, his visions are highly entertaining and enlightening.

    in addition, i found the books "fourth turning", "500 year delta" and "techgnosis" to add structure to his topic


  4. I read The Archaic Revival about six years ago when in college but I prefer the Singularity over Novelty Theory, because in the Singularity theory 2012 is just another year.

  5. thanks for the link. novelty theory and the singularity---- will the world end in 2012---he had to be joking!

    early in my evolution as a trader, i tried to apply novelty theory to the markets--- didn't get far in the practical application, however! although, theoretically, there seems to be some correlation.
