Outrun Change

We need to learn quickly to keep up with the massive change around us so we don't get run over. We need to outrun change.

2 worlds explored that I’ll never enter

There are two Forbes articles this year that are quite fascinating because they take me into worlds I’ll never see which are far away in a solar system that I’ll never approach.

An Interview With A Digital Drug Lord: The Silk Road’s Dread Pirate Roberts (Q&A) details a digital world of selling drugs that many (most? all?) governments consider illegal. Even in Mr. Roberts’ world there are ethical boundaries.

Inside Mega: The Second Coming of Kim Dotcom tells of the new massive online storage site developed by Kim Dotcom after the feds shut down his first version. This one, it is asserted, will be legal because all data is encrypted by the user thus the host has no idea what is being stored.

I find these articles fascinating because they are in-depth views inside worlds I’ll never see, let alone get the chance to try to understand.  They are a great stretching exercise.
