GIA: A new term I introduced just now.
Examples of GIA’s: Facebook, wikipedia.

-Aggregated information is easier to be filtered
-Aggregated information is easier to be spied on
-Aggregated information can be streamlined
-Aggregated information can be divided into subjects

The information flow, the music, the people, the crowd, the lights, the color, the sound.

“Every two days now we create as much information as we did from the dawn of civilization up until 2003”, Schmidt says.

Laptop stickers, Quantum mechanics, tenerife cycling and synchronicity

It is a fine day today.
When I woke up in the morning I’ve had my expired milk, checked my gmail, drove to work 20 minutes late. It was also a fine evening yesterday.
Also I’m expecting a fabulous weekend!
In the meantime, I was looking for a design pattern to make a lid sticker for my new laptop. It was all clear to me. After the snowflake next step was quantum particles. I’ve always admired them. Searching for a design I fell onto some blog discussing about quantum mechanics and carbon emissions! I was very lucky I would say if I believed in luck. After that I move on and read about synchronicity. I was so excited to read that, almost as I was when I read about synaesthesia!

What is synchronicity??
