    The Problem With Social

The Problem With Social

A  caveat: for those more accustomed to, and more interested in, the usually more philosophical, theological or sociological nature of The Diaries, you may want to skip this post. It's about finance and economics and more technical than usual. Just a heads up. If you do decide to venture in, I will clarify a bit more than usual regarding the [...]

Facebook Is Here to Stay

Someone posted a TIME magazine article this weekend that claimed that scientists have been running computer models that showed that social media is similar to diseases and that Facebook will soon lose up to 80% of it's users. I clicked. The article was from January. As in ten months ago.   Facebook of course has only continued to grow and immerse [...]

    The Need for Peaceful Reconciliation

The Need for Peaceful Reconciliation

It's getting bad now. All over the world. Protests and marches in the streets of New York, London, Paris, South Africa, Berlin, Sydney and many more cities across the globe -- all protesting against the incredibly shocking loss of innocent lives at the hands of Hamas and Israel. As I posted yesterday, it's not just our Palestinian friends we should [...]

Using Social Media as a Launching Pad as a Creative

I've noticed over the last few years that I have been more and more prone to use posts on social media as a jumping off platform for Transcendence Diaries entries. As I was typing the above I remembered that long before the advent of Facebook Tumblr and Twitter, I was already using these Diaries as a means to communicate regularly [...]

    The World’s Problems Ain’t Mine and Other Lies We Tell Ourselves

The World’s Problems Ain’t Mine and Other Lies We Tell Ourselves

More and more posts on Facebook, Tumblr and other social media here in the States are exclaiming how they don't want to see the horrific sites of what's happening the world. I just saw another one today. It read: "Wtf! Everyone on Facebook, around the world knows that there are horrible things going on in this world... we all fucking know [...]

It’s Time to Find Another Social Network — Facebook is Dying

Facebook is Painting It's Users Into a Very Small Box...of greatly limited people and information. Out of a potential 1500 posts that the average user may see in any given hour, that same user may only see 300 posts. Why? Because unlike four to six years ago when everyone first started using Facebook, the Newsfeed is no longer just an [...]

Her Very Real but Dark Vision of the Singularity

Last year's surprise sleeper hit film by Spike Jones, Her, is now the closest anyone has come to representing what the coming Singularity will look like -- as human beings get ever closer to being able to design not just artificial intelligence, but evolving artificial intelligence. It's no wonder so few actually saw the film. It is definitely acquired taste [...]

    Catholic Church to Allow Priests to Marry

Catholic Church to Allow Priests to Marry

Just watched PBS' excellent long-running Frontline -- the only televised news magazine that's still good at this point (thank God for PBS), the episode entitled Secrets of the Vatican. Well done as always. The rampant sex abuse and the ensuing regulatory of cover-ups through the church's history was shocking, even though like most I was already quite familiar with the [...]

    Occupy Will Seem Like a Picnic

Occupy Will Seem Like a Picnic

Read this post by a good friend in NYC earlier today on FB: "Did anyone see the spot this morning on CBS News with Shane Smith of VICE Media? He answered the question, "Why are young people so angry?" by reminding the CBS news team that young people world wide are disenfranchised and have been affected by the economic downturn more [...]

    Oscar Arrived Reserved Graceful & Elegant

Oscar Arrived Reserved Graceful & Elegant

This year's annual Academy Awards show aired tonight. Except for the few in the world -- less than six thousand -- who are actual members of the Academy, the event seems to have come out of nowhere. During a time of rushed chaos and crisis geopolitically, and an unnerving uneasiness economically domestically. "Now" certainly didn't "feel" like the right [...]

Something Special is Happening

Had to share this post from someone i saw on Facebook early this morning. Woke up at 3:45 am and couldn't get back to sleep. So i surfed for a while. I usually avoid religious posts. I don't Like them or UnLike them. I just don't pay attention to them. Any kind of public religious zealotry tends to turn me [...]

Check Your Morals at the Door of the Trading Floor

Deep uncover still, exploring the world of investing and trading. Six months now. Don't get me wrong, It isn't just research; it's also a way to make money. But it isn't as easy as it once was. Those days are long gone. Yes, with the right amount of capital it isn't difficult to make anywhere between $500 to $2000 a [...]

    Exploring Effortless Manifestation

Exploring Effortless Manifestation

Have you ever talked about someone or something that you haven't thought about it in a while and then all of a sudden you see that person or that thing a few minutes or hours or days later? Maybe a friend or a celebrity or an object or product. You have a spontaneous thought about it, and/or talk about it [...]

    Israel Are We There Yet?

Israel Are We There Yet?

It's either Sunday or Monday... Not sure. I've been in airports for days now. In the same clothes since Friday morning. Time tends to bend in on itself and convolute. Sunday morning --seems like days ago -- I awoke to find myself still in Manhattan even though I had flown to New York on Friday night just as a layover [...]

    Little Known Myths About Christopher Columbus

Little Known Myths About Christopher Columbus

1. Christopher Columbus wasn't his name and he wasn't Spanish. His actual name is Christof Colombo or Cologne. 2. The world didn't believe the earth was flat. In fact by 1492 everyone had already known the earth was round for 1700 years. In 240 BC Greek mathematician Arotothanese proved it by using sticks stuck into the ground and measuring the shadows [...]
