Playing B-Ball with Obama: 6 Steps to Crossing Anything Off Your Bucket List

Playing B-Ball with Obama: 6 Steps to Crossing Anything Off Your Bucket List | Curiouso | Scoop.it
“Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”
- William Hutchinson Murray, The Scottish Himalayan Expedition (1951)

The Truth About Human Nature

The Truth About Human Nature | Curiouso | Scoop.it

In Swift’s famous satire, Gulliver is so disgusted with human nature that he prefers to be a horse. Lee Perlman asks whether, in rejecting humanity and its lying nature, Gulliver gains enlightenment or is just lying to himself.

Ripping rationality from the human passions, disengaging fact-seeking from imagination, and then using this denuded rationality to disassemble one’s culture and connections is as absurd as deciding that it is better to be a horse.

*Ikka interprets this as "indulging the fantastic brings us closest to actual truth"*

Death of a data haven: cypherpunks, WikiLeaks, and the world's smallest nation | Curiouso | Scoop.it
Rumors suggest that WikiLeaks might try to avoid government power by putting its servers out to sea, but the idea isn't a new one—it already failed miserably a decade ago. Ars takes you inside the collapse of HavenCo.

 

When one of these data haven schemes hits at the right time, I think it'll work and possibly have a huge effect on internet freedom into the future.
