A nice blog...

Just a note of thanks to Dana Blankenship for his flattering blog about my talk at the Accelerating Change conference at Stanford. Read his assessment at: http://www.corante.com/mooreslore/archives/028659.html

"Brin's talk was a therapy session. 'We need criticism,' Brin said: 'Karl Popper said that if you're not making falsifiable statements you're not making statements.' And he could have added, you only learn when you change your mind."

Brin's point here was, "We have to stop acting out of our own self-righteousness and recognize that we too may be subjects of propaganda." And finally, "Only in an open society can we charge into the future."

A few inaccuracies... but he and the rest of the audience at the Stanford University Conference on Accelerating Change seemed to "get it"... that we need to remain a civilization that looks ahead, with both skepticism and eagerness, toward a future of open horizons. Not one featuring a stage-set drama of the end-of-the-world.

I read about your talk to the Conference on Accelerating Change in Dana Blanenship's newsletter, and am very interested in reading it. Any plans to post the text on your site?

Thanks,

Their notoriety is broke down by the arrangements they offer so try not to be worried about the security perspective any more as you will be put hold of the best specialists as it were. Additionally, our moving organizations and packers in Chennai are likewise low on your value go and will cost the little costs that you have ever anticipated.
