Finally, it’s 11/11/11. I’ve been waiting for this date my entire life. Now I can finally make that wish I’ve been waiting to make since I was five years old. It would be nice to share it with you guys, but then it won’t come true.

Okay, fine: I wish the technological singularity would hurry up and happen. Moore’s Law is interesting, the world is intense, and I think I need a beer. Ray Kurzweil, inventor and futurists, predicts that there will be no distinction between human and machine, post singularity. I’m listening to a dubstep song by Skrillex as I’m writing this. Great. He actually just played a show at the Bluebird here in Bloomington, IN this Wednesday.

Speaking of the future, check out Seth Godin if you haven’t already. He is a great author and reminds us that sharing, being sincere, and helping others is the way of the future. If you’re in sales, a fair price and a genuine caring for others will take you much further in the long run than scamming people. You don’t want to be like Eric from Billy Madison who can’t even define business ethics. That guy sucks.
