This thought-triggering documentary weaves interesting knowledge on such fundamental topics as religion, 9/11 and the banking world in less than 2 hours. I had to hold onto my chair.

Zeitgeist

The first part (starting at 9:35) tracing the origins of Christian religion back into ancient times, and illustrating the astrological change of Ages currently happening was especially interesting. The second part (@35:54) provides an overview of the 9/11 events within 35 minutes (well done!). The last part (@1:09:17) on the banking and financial business is also very well put together.

All in all, an informative documentary which will trigger opinions and can be quite confronting… But allowing oneself to hear the kind of questions Zeitgeist asks can be very rewarding in the end.

Check out the official website for the movie and more, including subtitled versions, sources and an interactive transcript.

Revenge of the Geeks February 26, 2007

Did you get the memo? The 2.0 phenomena isn’t replacing the office – it’s just making it more productive. Whether you call it Office 2.0 or Office 3.0, a new generation of productivity tools is reinvigorating the way we work, and more importantly, the way we work together. The TPS report may still be mandatory, but this time it will be a collaborative online document, cutting expenditures, reducing waste, and increasing efficiency. Lumbergh may still need you to work on Saturday, but this time you can do it from home via web-based spreadsheets and documents, instant message client, VOIP, and a whole host of next-generation tools.

At last, the cubicle is a concept of the past. Telecommuting is allowing environmentally and cost-conscious Dilbert sympathizers to spend more of their lifetime doing useful things, like not sitting in traffic jams.

Similarly, Web and Office n.0 are bringing software for the masses, finally allowing us to efficiently collaborate instead of individually looking after islands of documents and files.

Now if I could only remember where I put that stapler?

Kind of sad to see who owns think.com.

Veteran tech columnist John Dvorak suggests that not only consumers, but the Web and Microsoft itself would be better off without Internet Explorer.

If the problem is not weird legal cases against the company, then it’s the incredible losses in productivity at the company from the never-ending battle against spyware, viruses, and other security problems. All the work that has to go into keeping the browser afloat is time that could have been better spent on making Vista work as first advertised.

All of Microsoft’s Internet-era public-relations and legal problems (in some way or another) stem from Internet Explorer. If you were to put together a comprehensive profit-and-loss statement for IE, there would be a zero in the profits column and billions in the losses column—billions.

Funny that the very decisions M$ made 10 years ago – to rear-end itself into the early browser market and kill Netscape – could have effectively bogged down the development of Windows, one of their main cash cows.
