Beach Walk 595 – Cranky Geek

One of the online videos we watch on our Apple TV at home is “Cranky Geeks”:http://www.crankygeeks.com/. They cover tech topics, but one of my favorite aspects of the show is the name.

I just love how people are more and more choosing to be who they are. It was similar to what struck me in the Iconoclast episode with Laird Hamilton and Eddie Vedder I talked about in “Beach Walk 573″:http://www.beachwalks.tv/2008/01/21/beach-walk-573-deeply-oddly-true/. But I am often slow to allow that same awareness into my personal relationships, especially with Shane aka Secret Cameraman aka my own Cranky Geek. Being true to who you are is not just for celebrities any more!

Mahalo to Dave for providing today’s intro – what a great voice!

P.S. – Dave is my new friend, and is not (so far as I know) a “cranky geek.” Watch the episode to find out who is. :-)

I was reading about the French trader who committed over $7 billion in fraud. People have discussed how to prevent this in the future.

Naturally many minds head towards complicated procedures, custom programming and tracking software and so forth, when actually, something as simple as a mandatory vacation away from the office can be a powerful intervention tool. I love it when very _simple and human_ remedies can be found. I am going to give extra attention this week to seeking simple solutions.

Amazingly, we went 402 days without missing a day! Now, we are enjoying our leisurely five days a week schedule. We barely made it today before sunset, but what a reward! It was a perfect day and we stayed for another hour to have pupus and a twilight swim. More details on “the reef”:http://reef.beachwalks.tv!

Beach Walk 591 – Aborigine Apology

OK, so the world still has a lot of messes, but there are increasing signs of massive change for the better.

Today, I want to mark a few of those, starting with the very profound and symbolic apology issued by the Australian government last week, as its first order of business for the new session. Imagine over 100,000 aborigine children taken from their homes under force, placed in abusive group and foster “homes” and stripped of their family connections, their language, their customs. I hope this will never happen again anywhere. Listen to the “Happy Guru”:http://www.happyguru.com/blog/index.php/category/podcast-24-sorry/ podcast from Australia to learn more about the Stolen Generation; Duncan has a very inspiring podcast and very extensive notes about this topic.

Though this may seem far away from you, you can still lend your support. Watch today’s episode for more in this.

On another note, I voted tonight in the Hawaii caucuses. There was unprecedented voter turnout – four to ten times the average amount in various locations. People are getting off of their couches and taking a role in determining their/our future. I just love that.
