FNPL Episode 20.

November 18, 2007

After a rough time getting a show done last week, we managed to pull it off this week.

This week’s hosts: David, Kyle and Thaed. We discuss:

–Ask the Economist: given gold and oil are at all time highs and the dollar is at an all time low, what does this mean for the economy over the next 5 years? What can we do about it?
http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/11/071106133058.htm Sci fi v. reality, another solar system. What does this mean for humanity’s understanding of space. What does it mean for you personally?
–Income and net worth. http://finance.yahoo.com/banking-budgeting/article/103815/Where-Do-You-Stand-on-America’s-Wealth-Spectrum. Look it’s another list. What does this tell you about wealth in America? What does wealth correlate to on an individual level?
–Things that affect daily life are perhaps more important than they seem. Take cracking hands, for example or toenail clippers or ironing. Is there something to elevating the mundane? Are Buddists right in thinking that we should focus on directly experiencing life through the mundane?
–Fab at home. http://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/industry/4224759.html. How long before this is actually useful? Will it ever be? Is this the next great advance that will be commonplace in 50 years the way computers are today?
–Name things and industries that don’t seem to have patent squatters. How are patent squatters affecting innovation?
