It has been a while since I wrote this small booklet. But it is still relevant. Lot’s of typos though. As always. And needs some more information on cultural development and how to get people involved. Check it out: http://secondrealm.net/files/en/second-realm-strategy.pdf I wonder when part II will get done.

You know when you hit a bubble or a strange business when you receive spam about it. So it happened to this blog last night.

Hanging out constantly with other children teaches you only how to behave like a barbaric child.

Ten Reasons To Be Happy. #2. The decentralization of information is here. For most of the twentieth century, ideas and information in America were largely controlled in two institutions closely tied to the state: the media and the Academy. The Internet has blown that wide open. Add in Twitter, Facebook, Digg and the like, and the distribution channels for decentralized information have become decentralized too. We are in a world where any article written on any web site has as much chance of being read en masse as something published in The NY Times.
