Welcome to my corner of the web, where I keep notes on the business of developing software based solutions that collect data and turn it into intuitively actionable information.

IT Sections

The IT section covers the whole process of Application Development, among other topics.

The Glossary is an organised entry point to notes on industry technologies, protocols and products, and business terms one hears.

Presentations

To take your time going over a presentation I have given, view it again on the Presentations page.

Blog

Or simply read the Blogs during my Pomodoro breaks between trying to find solutions to problems under lack of time, budget and your average IT duress.

Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect (Matthew 5:48).

I'm confused.

If his way is perfect, why does he need to be supplicated to do his work better?

If his work is perfect, why do we have to ask him to change the course of nature?

If his creations are perfect, why negative outcomes?

If he is perfect, why does our prayer and supplication work? How? Does it work on his/her vanity? Is it based on judgment, and therefore correction of his perfect plan? Is it based on payment and sacrifice? If he/her is perfect, don't they already have everything needed?

If outcomes perceived as negative are planned outcomes from a perfect creation and plan, then nothing is bad, so is nothing good?

If creation is a perfect plan , it is is not improvable, therefore it is imperfect? Therefore…?

The same issue with reincarnation though. How was it decided that a louse was lower on the pecking order of dogs and dogs were below humans, and human arhats are the last stop before enlightenment? Couldn't a dog, who has already learnt to be carefree of most worries, who also conquered worrying about food and sex, be more considered more enlightened than us with our myriad of hungers and desires?

Why are people so impassioned with ensuring others have a faithful dependency on another entity than themselves? Is it really compassion and sharing – or an fear of being the last person in the crowd who isn't responsible enough to live with our own self-understanding of our list of weaknesses to invest in strengthening?

Using logos instead of mythos is difficult and lonely.

Ain't it ironic how so many ordinary people dream of becoming famous actors, when everyday most are already acting.
And people in the movie industry try to act as ordinary people.

We're not social animals.

We're networked animals, over both loci and time.

It is the network over time that makes us so special among all animals (via media).  

It's certainly not the first form. Mankind is not especially social or kind. In fact we're just as vicious – if not more – than other animals, only feigning social connection because we're lazy and it keeps our cannibalistic prey closer.

Its most controversial idea was that the well-being of future generations should be given the same weight as that of the present one. Discounting the interests of future people, Ramsey wrote, is “ethically indefensible and arises merely from the weakness of the imagination.”
