I wonder if we could create our own Hong Kong close to Silicon valley by giving some land to the 99% and letting them thrive without taxes to slow them down. Maybe they decide on some new cyber currency to be the money of the land and innovation could thrive. Perhaps it might even be a model for the rest of the country.

Innovation Speaker Series

Got to see the author of Search Inside Yourself (SIY). This groundbreaking program and course developed at Google and featured in the New York Times develops effective, innovative leaders using science-based mindfulness and emotional intelligence training.

It was interesting, however not enough to pay an extra $800 for the course that follows, however I am intrigued.

From time to time I look at some interesting Cellphone Options all pre-paid:

Verizon network pre-paid: but the phones suck, 
cooler phones and the flash them for you:
Virgin has some pretty good phones and $35/month unlimited SMS/3G 300Min Voice, but who needs voice when you have SMS?

Then there is that gives you 10% off on your first purchase and a first credit card. will get you a telephone number. A cheap home phone line on the internet can be had with a Obi100.
