There’s as many atoms in a single molecule of your DNA as there are stars in the typical galaxy. We are, each of us, a little universe.

I am convinced that boredom is one of the greatest tortures. If I were to imagine Hell, it would be the place where you were continually bored.

We didn’t give women the right to vote (in the U.S.) until 1920. …That means American Democracy is 94 years old. There are three people in my building older than American democracy. Women have had a rough time. It was so okay to beat your wife until so recently, that today we have a kind of shirt named after it. There’s a piece of clothing in our culture affectionately nicknamed after beating the crap out of your wife, and for some reason this is offensive to nobody.

Imagination alone is not enough, because the reality of nature is far more wondrous than anything we can imagine.

This adventure is made possible by generations of searchers strictly adhering to a simple set of rules: Test ideas by experiment and observation; build on those ideas that pass the test; reject the ones that fail; follow the evidence, wherever it leads; and question everything.

Accept these terms, and the cosmos is yours.

Education is what people do to you, learning is what you do to yourself.
MIT Media Lab director Joi Ito at #TED2014. Pair with this excellent read on how to fuel the lifelong engine of learning beyond formal education.   (via educationalliberty)

Well if that doesn’t hit the nail on the proverbial head, I don’t know what does. Let’s be learning facilitators, not educators.

Favourite quotes by person: Neil deGrasse Tyson

This one is keeper. Brilliant set of quotes. 

P.S. The thing i hate about people who don’t believe in Science is that they enjoy all the comforts and conveniences of the modern day world. The thing they don’t ask is “How did all those come about?”

Our world is the way it is today because of Science and Technology, no two ways about it.

The Indian media is proudly trumpeting Staya Nadella’s rise at Microsoft but is not worth looking at why Indians are not building a world class consumer tech company? One that can go toe-to-toe with those big American Companies.
P.S. By going toe-to-toe means building products and services that are truly original and compelling. (Building clones does not count in my humble opinion.) 

The iPhone comes with all the basics out of the box. And they are all perfectly serviceable.

Seriously. I could use the built in calendar for my scheduling and the notes app for the writing/capturing stuff. I don’t need Twitter or App.net. All of this extra stuff is “nice to have” not “need to have.” We would all do better to remember that.

I pretty much follow the same philosophy. I don’t install third-party apps just for the fun of it.

When someone tells their friend about a great gadget they’ve been using or a non-profit they’ve been supporting, that word-of-mouth marketing carries far more weight than a hundred advertisements.

Remarkable Things — Shawn Blanc

No amount of marketing can brainwash me into using gimmicky products.
