Hacking your Brain

One could argue that the coffee & caffeinated soda drinking we do is a brain hack. Same with sugar and carbohydrates. Certainly alcohol and drugs are hacks for both the brain and body.

There is a lot of effort and energy around hacking your brain and you should take a peek at these:

Last but not least is the whole area of cogniceuticals and — what Zack Lynch (one of my favorite bloggers) wrote about, Will Neuroceutical Usage Widen Ability Gaps Within And Across Societies?” and “Mental health is the ultimate competitive weapon.”

This entire area of brain hacks is going to continue to accelerate. Imagine competing with someone for a job that has hacked their brain and is significantly more alert, has much more energy, is happier and more optimistic and needs A LOT less sleep than you.

Connecting the Dots Podcast

Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows. Click here to view the archive of my podcast posts.
