“I can say conidently that a reasonable measure of control over appetites, coupled with some knowledge of the mighty mechanism and a befitting consitution proved a surer and safer way to spiritual unfoldment than any amount of self-mortification or abnormal religious fervour can do.”
Gopi Krishna

Kundalini – The Evolutionary Energy in Man

Doug Engelbart

I’d never heard of Doug Engelbart (and that’s a pitty) until after he departed from his body on June 2. His visionary talk about computing from 1968 is mind blowing. Two things struck me … one, the obvious, is the vision he had and the way he brought it to it life. The second was how he had also (inadvertently?) planted the seeds of the a major shortcoming of user experience – the technical/engineering approach that trumps the emotional aspects of human life. 45 years later and I still don’t use a computing device to make a shopping list – pen and paper still works much better for me. MAYBE (

Anyways, fantastic talk:
