Happy Birthday is a simple straightforward compatibility filter that uses picture sets to help identify like-minded people in a safe and fun environment.

The new website associates people of like personalities with each other using social science and a thin-slicing algorithm.

Similar to many of the case studies Malcolm Gladwell cites in his #1 National Bestseller Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking, the website uses Scientifically-Based Predictors that present a paradigm shift in matching technology.

Different than all of the other existing social networking or dating sites, the MindMetrics Science of Simplicity transcends language, race, gender, religion, and politics.

Give it a try it’s FREE and we must admit addictive!

What you focus on grows.

With all the talk around the troubled newspaper industry you would think the newspaper industry would have learned their lesson by now.

As my friend Robin Sharma simply states; “Every second you dwell on the past you steal from your future. Every minute you spend focusing on your problems you take away from finding your solutions.”

We have been working on solutions for the next generation of news gathering and dispersal that we will roll out to the world next month.

Are you an innovator? Do you have an idea? Drop us a line.

How to Save Your Newspaper

“Newspapers and magazines traditionally have had three revenue sources: newsstand sales, subscriptions and advertising. The new business model relies only on the last of these. That makes for a wobbly stool even when the one leg is strong. When it weakens - as countless publishers have seen happen as a result of the recession - the stool can’t possibly stand.” - Walter Isaacson Time

Do you have any ideas on creating the new three legged stool for journalism and news?

Inherent in every idea

As the team and I worked through some brain storming exercises that included defining the biggest fail whale to working through the polar opposites of Twitter and the iPhone we uncovered a truth.

Inherent in every idea is the mechanics for it’s fulfillment.

If you are drawn to an enlightened teacher

If you are drawn to an enlightened teacher, it is because there is already enough presence in you to recognize presence in another. There were many people who did not recognize Jesus or the Buddha, as there are and always have been many people who are drawn to false teachers. Egos are drawn to bigger egos. Darkness cannot recognize light. Only light can recognize light. So don’t believe that the light is outside you or that it can can only come through one particular form. If only your master is an incarnation of God, then who are you? Any kind of exclusivity is identification with form, and identification with form means ego, no matter how well disguised.

Use the masters presence to reflect your own identity beyond name and form back to you and to become more intensely present yourself. You will soon realize that there is no “mine” or “yours” in presence. Presence is one.

Group work can also be helpful for intensifying the light of your presence. A group of people coming together in a state of presence generates a collective energy field of great intensity. It not only raises the degree of presence of each member of the group but also helps to free the collective human consciousness from its current state of mind dominance. This will make the state of presence increasingly more accessible to individuals. However, unless at least one member of the group is already firmly established in it and thus can hold the energy frequency of that state, the egoic mind can easily reassert itself and sabotage the group’s endeavors. Although group work is invaluable, it is not enough, and you must not come to depend on it. Nor must you come to depend on a teacher or a master, except during the transitional period, when you are learning the meaning and practice of presence.

-Eckhart Tolle
