“Why did our drug research frighten the establishment so profoundly? Why does it still frighten them? Perhaps because we were able to step off (or were tossed off) the treadmill of daily stuff and saw the whole system of life-death-life. We had discovered that love is the fundamental energy of the universe. And we wouldn’t shut up about it.”
i gave a talk at nerd nite last tuesday, all about google and the internet and relationships and memory and self-esteem and kittens.
it’s certainly not the best talk i’ve ever given (i kept forgetting what slide came next, and said “um” entirely too much), BUT it’s the only one i’ve ever recorded (for my mom, in case you were wondering).
so feel free to watch if’n you’re bored and have an extra 30 minutes or so on your hands.
if you don’t have an extra 30 minutes on your hands, i’ll go ahead and tell you that the best part (or at least my personal favorite part) is pretty early - around the 1:37 mark.
(i don’t even start talking about my own stuff until 23 minutes in).
