Religion & Dune

Dune 2 is a fantastic movie, one I would put up next to Oppenheimer any day of the week. Now that Oppenheimer has won best picture, it’s clear how highly I think of that film. Having read the book, I knew that going in that the Dune universe wasn’t big on fundamentalism, but I never… Continue reading Religion & Dune

Laws of Life

Life works on a few laws, observations gleaned from organizational management. Some of these Laws are very useful for every day life. The first one is Metcafe’s Law aka there are too many people on this team!

I… Continue reading Philosophy Anyone?

Intrinsic Worth

This is a ~20′ Reniell Boat with the engine included, and I can get it to you for a low price! Just kidding. I took this picture in downtown Seattle on Elliott Ave, near the campus of Expedia and that cool Amgen Helix bridge that leads to the still-lovely Centennial Park. This part of Seattle… Continue reading Intrinsic Worth

Why Philosophy Matters…more now than ever

Yeah, it’s been a tough stretch. What it shows is a lack of connection to each other, a loss of that mental model that bonds us to the community and the world.
