There Will Be Blood

January 16, 2008

Business 101. Leadership in business requires flexibility in the assertive personality that leaders posses.

The study of the character by Daniel Day Lewis and P.T. Anderson is a masterpiece for all young business minds out there from Harvard Business School to Santa Monica College. It’s a must see, since what? Wall Street.

People who are driven to success do not like people.

They only deal with people because they have to in order to make money. Do not be confused by characters out there in your real world who seem to like people, and they are also drivers to achieve. Achievers are fighters and they will bite you in the face if it means getting to the achievement in the most efficient way possible. They will bend backwards, accept god, whatever means necessary to get what they want from you. They are accepted socially by their achievement, not by the goodness of feelings they bring to each one of your homes.

Perhaps this weblog is a short study of my mind, but There Will Be Blood is an excellent lesson in business 101. This is not a movie review, this forethought on what it takes to make it big in business, go see the movie. Snakes!

P.S. Don’t pay for a ticket, manage a way to see it for free! Remember in order to have money you need to accumulate it.

Man Vs Machine

October 22, 2007

Around the world as we know it today technology is moving life at the speed of light. I was looking through Youtube and found a contrast between human and machine going for the same objective to solve Rubik’s Cube.


Machine at its best…

And then there is Michel Gondry doing his version…

Technology is always one step behind the human brain, because it is our brain that is the creator of everything human invent by accident or by decades of schooling. I thought it was interesting looking at the first video of a child on what looks to be a television show in China perhaps. It is interesting Chinese culture values this type of participatory media type of entertainment. I am pretty sure they have their version of American Idol, but to see this child embrace the objective and the challenge was eye opening.

In the machine video we see a computer directing what looks to be a lego set with a laser of some sort to solve the puzzle. It works effectively, it does not make a mistake, it does not reverse a move and I felt that was powerful. Perhaps the human brain is one step ahead of the technology it creates, but this technology can be more effective and efficient at tasks.

Michel Gondry I did not know he had hobbies, but I thought this was cool vid so enjoy it.
