Sharing Your Story

The Story of Us

Have you submitted your story yet? Stories are what bind us and heal us. Sharing our stories with each other is how human beings know they are not alone and on the right track. This week we begin our new feature “Submit My Story” – and we hope you will.

What is the greatest story of your life so far? What defines you? For example, this is Sheela who was rescued from the pound, just days we heard from being put down. The tattoo is of a women born in 1938 who loved kittens, broke the heart of an astronaut, and almost died when she retired from working too hard to support others. Survivors, both, and yet their stories are shared.

Submit YOUR STORY here. And watch us as our site takes a few leaps forward in the coming weeks to make room for your voices.

Gosh we love our job.

People Who See What The Machines Are Doing

#LPTrendsPeople: Sharing the very unique work of two people, Amara D. Angelica and Sarah Black, and their visionary site to bring the work of science and technology that is accelerating intelligence. Meet Kurzweil Accelerating Intelligence.

Launched in 2001, KurzweilAI explores the forecasts and insights on accelerating change articulated in Ray Kurzweil’s landmark books — notably The Age of Spiritual Machines and The Singularity Is Near — and updates these books with key breakthroughs in science and technology.

From their site: The “AI” in KurzweilAI refers to “accelerating intelligence,” a core concept that underlies the exponential growth of the pervasive information-based technologies — both biological and machine — that are radically changing our world. These include biotechnology, nanotechnology & materials science, molecular electronics, computation, artificial intelligence, robotics, neuroscience, physics, Internet, energy, electronics, pattern recognition, virtual reality, human brain reverse engineering, and brain and body augmentation. The leading visionaries represented on this site cover these and other topics, and examine the trends that are profoundly impacting science, economics, the arts, politics, government, warfare, medicine, health, education, disabilities, behavior, and society.

Co-founders/editors Amara D. Angelica and Sarah Black appreciate all feedback (both positive and critical), for ideas for new features.
