“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it.” - Steve Jobs

New Year’s Followup

Well a lot of people probably think I spouted a bunch of nonsense and did nothing about it. The reality is that I spent $35 total on my New Year’s celebrating and gave $40 to Oxfam &/or Doctors Without Borders through the host of our event at the “Hope and Anchor” bar, restaurant and karaoke lounge. Thank you Ms. Kay Sera for your constant reminder of our need to give to this all too important cause.

This is on top of the $25 that I gave to the American Jewish World Service.

Nothing is enough, but it is clear that authere & modest living is something I’m considering more and more deeply, which is a tough thought let alone change considering my very comfortable and currently materialistic life. I don’t see a Ghandi-like life anytime soon, but the thought alone feels transforming in a way.
