I had expected a wide range of answers and what I recieved was interesting. What I learned was even better. Our generation has no lack of creativity. We are consistently evolving. which is only a distraction from the fact that we’re daft... completely mad. But at the end of all of it; we have hope, hope that we will define this century, that people speak of our generation with a tone of nostalgia. We are the pioneers of a new millenium. For the rest of time our generation will be regarded as the great transition when modern technology was born.

In a day where you cannot fail there’s supplies that may come in handy. For me I would need a sketch book, pens, my leather jacket, camera, wallet, made in the U.S.A selvedge denim (Levi’s only), Rayban’s, keys and smokes. With these supplies I would feel pretty confident walking into any situation. Ready to take on the world and whatever it has to offer or whatever it can dish out.

NEW/ GENERATION We are Generation Y College admissions offices, most employers and marketing companies are going into a frenzy over Generation Y, a cohort of individuals characterized as Generation X on steroids. Generation Y includes those born between the second half of the 1970s and the first half of the 1990s, although some experts believe these dates to be debatable. Several other terms for this group have been very tossed around, including Echo Boomers, The Millenium

Generation, iGeneration, Einstein Generation and Google Generation. Such names define the world which Generation Y has grown up, a world with diverse Internet resources, iPods, MySpace and intensely multi-tasking simultaneously chatting on a problem set, watching television and listening to music. These kids are the kids of the Baby Boomers, heavily immersed in a digital world. Some demographers view the 1986 Challenger

explosion and the fall of the Berlin Wall as the first major events that older Generation Yers will remember, separating them from Generation X. Union and the First Gulf War serves as the midpoint and the 9/11 terrorist attacks as the ultimate endpoint.

Growing up with the dot-com bust and a number of layoffs from merging major companies or for other reasons, Generation Y is more financially savvy than its predecessors. A survey by the Diversified Investment Advisors of Purchase, New York reported that 37 percent of Generation Y members expect to start saving for retirement before they can reach 25, with 49 percent who say retirement benefits are very important when accepting a position. While reacting to layoffs and the recent major corporation scandals such as the Enron, the idea of both the employee and employer loyalty have disappeared. A study by the Families and Work Institute from around a year ago found out that younger workers are less likely to be obsessed with work; they are more interested preserving their quality of life, even if it may mean staying at the same position in the labor hierarchy system.

As for attire, business dress may seem to an older generation as if it’s becoming more casual, with jeans, sandals and polo shirts making their way into the office. The members of Generation Y are usually characterized as being more racially and culturally tolerant than past generations. Gay rights and other gender roles have also become widely accepted.

THOUGHTS ON TODAY

A similar attitude can be attributed to theoretical physicist Albert Einstein, a man who, of course, hardly needs any introduction. The German-born scientist is best-known for his two theories of relativity, special and general, the first of which describes the famous equation that would underlie the atomic research and the Manhattan Project. Some people dismiss Einstein as brilliant but idiosyncratic, lost in a remote world of physics and mathematical formulas. But in reality, his contributions changed science and contemporary thought during his own lifetime, and the extent of his influence is still clearly evident today. He is also best known for revolutionizing modern physics, and practical application of his knowledge is seen almost everyday. But he remains important for other reasons, as well, including his unconventional way of thinking about things; his social concerns about war and violence; and the irony that he, a lifelong pacifist, helped bring about the development of the atomic bomb. Einstein’s contributions, to science and to humanity in general, spanned the entire course of his lifetime. His influence could be said to have really begun in 1905, an important year for him. He had a number of his scientific papers and theories published, including the theory of special relativity, which says that the motion of observers compared with each other affects their measurement of length and time. B.K. Ridley, in the book Time, Space and Things, says Einstein proved that neither absolute motion nor absolute lack of motion could exist, because the speed of light in a vacuum is constant, to all observers, and mass and energy are interchangeable—hence the formula, E=mc2. In 1915, Einstein expanded on that and wrote the general theory of relativity, redefining gravity as the result of the curving of time and space around (and because of) mass. That is, time and space.It took some time before these theories (especially general relativity) were justly proven and widely accepted, but even in 1905, Einstein’s works were still considered groundbreaking, as well as a bit unsettling: “This was incredibly shocking to a world that saw Newton’s laws of physics as sacrosanct,” says PBS’s “A Science Odyssey: People and Discoveries” online article on special relativity (“Odyssey”).

Finally, in 1919, a solar eclipse made it possible for astronomers to prove that Einstein’s theory was correct. Another Einstein-related article on the PBS “Science Odyssey” site says, “Much of the world had just caught its breath after a long and horrifying war, and perhaps in relief, latched on to this amazing human achievement.” In the years that followed the war, almost every aspect of society and culture was being challenged and redefined, and everything seemed riddled with uncertainty. But when verifiable proof was achieved that supported Einstein’s seemingly strange new theories, it surely must have given people relief to know that, in the midst of it all, there was still a way to explain things, through science, in a way that made sense.

“The scientistic mentality has succeeded in leading many to think that if something is technologically possible it is therefore morally admissible.” Written by Pope John Paul II in 1998, in an encyclical titled “Fides et Ratio” (“Faith and Reason”), these words simply but effectively state an important truth: The mere fact that we have the capacity to do something, or to act a certain way, does not automatically justify that action or behavior. A person can make the choice to enter a bank and burglarize it, for an example, but just because he can does not mean that his actions are ethical. The Pope’s holy words warned against acceptance or use of a technology solely because we know how to create it.

These ideas were troubling, says Jerry Bentley in the Traditions & Encounters textbook, because science, long held to be correct and an absolute in its current form, was meeting with ideas that called into question “the limits of what could be known with certainty.’

Wisdom from Albert Einstein

Immediately prior to that period, during World War I, was a time when Einstein’s attention was oftentimes rather diverted from physics; as a pacifist, he took a firm stance against the war, often speaking out on the issue. The American Institute of Physics online quotes him as saying, “My pacifism is an instinctive feeling. that possesses me because the murder of men is disgusting. My attitude is not derived from any intellectual theory but is based on my deepest antipathy to every kind of cruelty and hatred. wAlso according to the AIP’s “Einstein Exhibit,” nearly one hundred “leading German intellectuals signed a manifesto defending Germany’s war conduct.” Time magazine’s online article, “Person of the Century: Albert Einstein,” says that, in response to the manifesto, Einstein and just three other German scientists “risked the Kaiser’s wrath by signing an antiwar petition” After the war, and in fact until the day he died, Einstein never much wavered in his position as a pacifist. And though he is most noted for his scientific writings, Einstein also wrote a great deal about his concerns, and one of the best examples of this is seen in his correspondence with psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud. A class Web page at one university’s Web site provides a transcript of the exchange, referred to as “The Einstein-Freud Correspondence.” In 1932, Einstein wrote to Freud to ask his opinion regarding the nature of war, particularly why it has perpetually continued to exist in spite of all the destruction and harm that it brings. He posed the question, “Is there any way of delivering mankind from the menace of war?” “Correspondence” Then, reflecting on the capacity for technology to bring even greater destruction and death than before, Einstein added, “It is common knowledge that, with the advance of modern science, this issue has come to mean a matter of life and death for Civilization as we know it.” Einstein says he believes that within people is an internal “lust” that drives people toward “hatred and destruction,” and he asks if there is a way to prevent this strange, destructive impulse that seems inherent in human nature. Most interesting, probably, is Einstein’s reference to the greater potential for devastation because of the rise in technology; this reminds us of the irony that the peace-loving physicist would indirectly be involved in creating the atom bomb. Recall the equation, from special relativity, that “energy = mass (times) the speed of light (squared).” It was widely used for its lead-in to new wartime technology. Einstein proposed the formula in 1905, but the atom-bomb project didn’t come into being until 1939, says Joseph Schwartz in the book Einstein for Beginners (166). The formula says that the amount of energy obtainable from an object equals the mass of an object times the square of the speed of light.

In 1932, Einstein wrote to Freud to ask his opinion regarding the nature of war, and particularly why it has perpetually continued to exist in spite of all the destruction and harm that it brings. He posed the question, “Is there any way of delivering mankind from the menace of war?” (“Correspondence”) Then, reflecting on the capacity for technology to bring even greater destruction and death than before, Einstein added, “It is common knowledge that, with the advance of modern science, this issue hasv come to mean a matter of life and death for Civilization as we know it. Einstein says he believes that within people is an internal “lust” that drives people toward “hatred and destruction, and he asks if there is a way to prevent this strange, destructive impulse that seems inherent in human nature. Most interesting, probably, is Einstein’s reference to the greater potential for devastation because of the rise in technology; this reminds us of the irony that the peace-loving physicist would indirectly be involved in creating the atom bomb. Recall the equation, from special relativity, that “energy = mass (times) the speed of light (squared).” It was widely used for its lead-in to new wartime technology. Einstein proposed the formula in 1905, but the atom-bomb project didn’t come into being until 1939, says Joseph Schwartz in the book Einstein for Beginners (166). The formula says that the amount of energy obtainable from an object equals the mass of an object times the square of the speed of light. The formula also tells us that only a tiny amount of matter is necessary to produce an incredible amount of energy. Because of the great potential, this formula became the basis for the atomic research in the ‘40s. Doug Long’s article also tells us that while Einstein was an “absolute pacifist” in 1929, he later changed his stance somewhat in 1933, because of “Hitler’s ascent to power in Germany.” According to the Time magazine online article, at one point the physicist Leo Szilard told Einstein of the risk that the Germans could build an atom bomb; around 1938, the uranium atom had been split in Germany, and “continued German aggression” made the threat seem all the more likely. Einstein, in turn, signed a letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, urging him to take action. Einstein actually had not been very up-to-date on “recent developments in nuclear physics,” though, and when he learned of chain reactions, he expressed amazement, stating that this hadn’t occurred to him. Of course, as Doug Long points out, “bombs were not what Einstein had in mind when he published (his) equation.” For the most part, Einstein wasn’t even directly involved in the creation of the atomic bomb. But nonetheless, he felt responsible for the massive destruction that characterized the war. At one point, according to Schwartz, Einstein declared, “If I had known that this would happen, I’d have been a shoemaker instead!” Doug Long references another quote from Einstein, in which he once wrote that he was always staunchly opposed to the bombing of Japan. After the war was over, Einstein became an even greater proponent of peace and disarmament, and according to the Time article, he avidly campaigned for “a ban on nuclear weaponry.” Because of the knowledge he imparted to the world, many steps have been taken over time to prevent the usage of atomic weapons. In 1946, Congress passed the Atomic Energy Act, moving authority out of the hands of the U.S. Army and giving it to the Atomic Energy Commission—whose primary goal was “assuring the common defense and security,” says Jack Fehner in a report titled The United States Department of Energy, 1977-1994. Clearly, Einstein has left an immeasurable impact on modern science and technology as we know it. Because of him, we have the two theories of relativity. He also made major contributions to quantum mechanics, cosmology, statistical mechanics and the photoelectric effect. He’d developed

a formula that, ironically, partly sparked a world war he never wantedn the same formula that would eventually end it. Without his theories, many of the technological advances—including those related to spacecrafts, solar-system exploration, nuclear-power plants and everything in-between might not exist today. There would probably still be inaccurate information about how Earth moves in a consistent pattern around the sun and how gravitational fields work. Here was a man with new ideas, new knowledge, and new theories that he believed would improve the old ideas. One of the problems with scientists and other brilliant people is the fear of being wrong. So they will not allow themselves to expand their mind; basically, they are afraid to suggest or predict a new idea, says Barry Parker in his book Einstein’s Dream. Einstein was a factor who began to change all of this, a factor that would change ways of thinking. His unique ways of study and thought, often which involved him pacing in circles or “drawing out” equations, were proof that there is no “wrong” way to learn things. He inspired new ways of thinking. It was OK to be wrong and to take chances. Scientists still look up to him not only for his technical knowledge but as a person. He was a genius, he was distinctive, he was humanitarian, and when he chose to be, he was humorous. Just months before he died, says Long, Einstein once said that “I made one great mistake in my life… when I signed the letter to President Roosevelt recommending that atom bombs be made; but there was some justification - the danger that the Germans would make them.” Albert Einstein never wanted to see weapons develop from his famous formula, although he predicted it might happen. Books you might want to read according to Stefan Sagmeister Yes. The two books I could recommend to my students are both not graphic design books. One book was extremely helpful to me was written by Edward DeBono called Thinking Course. Edward DeBono is a philosopher from Malta, - he wrote a lot of books about thinking. And he shows many exercises about how you can improve your thinking. There are a good number of tricks in there that I use all the time that help me come up with ideas. He says our brain is an incredibly sophisticated computer which is best in thinking in repetition. It has to be that way, otherwise, if you want to pick up, - say, a business card, if the brain would be creative all the time, I would have to think: oh, hands go forward, go down, fingers, move, now lift it up. It would be too complicated. The brain, by necessity, is very good at automatically thinking. But when it comes to creative ideas, the brain also wants to think in repetition. So DeBono shows you some ways to trick the brain out of thinking in repetitions, to throw it out of its regular paths. The other book is written by Brian Eno. He is a very important electronic musician, who had invented ambient music and produced the Talking Heads and U2.And he wrote a diary for One Year. The way he goes about making his music and thinking about music is very helpful for graphic designers.

“Thinking life will be better in the future is stupid, I have to live now.”

Would you do in a day? Oh where do I even begin with such a question. I would definitely want to do something epic like party with ‘The Rolling Stones.’ I would also have to perform at least one song with them. Aside from that I would probably want the opportunity to chase my own dream of becoming an infamous

DJ. If I had enough time afterwards I would definitely go and headline a music festival with Skrillex. The crowd would be chanting my name as I finished my encore. Then I would go to VIP backstage and rage all night.

RANDOM / CONVERSATION Carpe Diem : Sieze the Day Carpe diem is a phrase from a Latin poem by Horace that has become an aphorism. It popularly translated as “seize the day”. Carpe literally means “to pick, pluck, pluck off, cull, crop, gather”, Ovid used the word in the sense, “to enjoy, seize, use, make use of”. In Bread, the phrase is part of the longer Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero “Seize the Day, putting as little trust as possible in the future”, and the ode says that the future is unforeseen, and that instead one should scale back one’s hopes to a very brief future, and drink one’s wine. This phrase is usually understood against Horace’s Epicurean background. Collige, virgo, rosas “gather, girl, the roses” appears at the end of the poem De rosis nascentibus (also called Idyllium de rosis) attributed to Ausonius or Virgil. It encourages youth to enjoy life before it is too late; compare Gather Rosebuds While Ye May from To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time. Nunc est bibendum “now is the time to drink” from the Odes of Horace: Nunc est bibendum, nunc pede libero pulsanda tellus “Now is the time to drink, now the time to dance footloose upon the earth.” De Brevitate Vitae (“On the Shortness of Life”), often referred to as Gaudeamus igitur, (“Let us rejoice”) is a popular academic commercium song, on taking joy in student life, with the knowledge that one will someday die. It is medieval Latin, dating to 1287. Then Horace himself parodies the phrase in another of his poems, ‘The town mouse and the country mouse’. He uses the phrase carpe viam meaning ‘seize the road’ to compare the two different attitudes to life of a person (or in this case, a mouse) living in a city and in the countryside. Related but distinct is the expression memento mori (“remember that you are mortal” which carries some of the same connotation as carpe diem. For Horace, mindfulness of our own mortality is key in making us realize the importance of the moment. “Remember that you are mortal, so seize the day.” Over time the phrase memento mori also came to be associated with penitence, as suggested in many vanitas paintings. Today many

listeners will take the two phrases as representing almost opposite approaches, with ‘carpe diem’ urging us to savour life and ‘memento mori’ urging us to resist its allure. This is not the original sense of the memento mori phrase as used by Horace. Though Similarly, ubi sunt – “where are they now?” invokes transience and meditation on death, but is not an exhortation to action. Compare Dead Poets Society, where a trophy case filled with pictures of long-dead boys (“these boys are now fertilizing daffodils”) leads to an invocation of carpe diem. John Keating, a character played by Robin Williams in the film Dead Poets Society says, “Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.” The American Film Institute ranked this line number 95 in its list of the 100 best quotations in American film history, and the phrase was also the title of a soundtrack in the movie. In the Oscarwinning short Harvie Krumpet, Harvie’s empty life is changed completely when he sees the inscription underneath a statue of Horace, prompting him to seize the day and do as he pleases forever. Carpe Diem is the name of a song by Authority Zero. Seize the Day is name of a song by American metal band Avenged Sevenfold, from their 2005 album City of Evil. ‘Carpe Diem Baby’ is name of a song by American heavy metal band Metallica, from their 1997 album ReLoad. ‘Carpe Diem’ is name of a song by American progressive metalcore band August Burns Red, from their 2011 album Leveler. Carpe Diem is the name of Japanese rock band Aqua Timez’s 2011 album, and is the name of a song by punk rock band Green Day. The song A Change of Seasons by Dream Theater also references the concept of Carpe Diem, and quotes the aforementioned painting Gather Ye Rosebuds While Ye May. American Alternative metal band Egypt Central used the term in their song Change from their 2011 album White Rabbit.“We are food for worms, lads,” announces John Keating, the unorthodox English teacher played by Robin Williams in the 1989 film Dead Poets Society. “Believe it or not,” he tells his students, “each and every one of us in this room is one day going to stop breathing, turn cold, and die.” The rallying cry of their classroom is “carpe diem,” popularized as “seize the day,” although more literally translated as “pluck the day,” referring to the gathering of moments like flowers, suggesting the ephemeral quality of life, as in Robert Herrick’s “To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time,” which begs readers to live life to its full potential, singing of the fleeting nature of life itself. Various permutations of the phrase appear in other ancient works of verse, including the expression “Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die,” which is derived from the Biblical book of Isaiah. At the close of “De rosis nascentibus,” a poem attributed to both Ausonius and Virgil, the phrase “collige, virgo, rosas” appears, meaning “gather, girl, the roses.” The expression urges the young to go live. To get outdoors and make the most of the time we have. In this case 24 hours.

How to decide what to blog about?

Do a Complete turn around

Incidentally, Google suggested this keyphrase to me as I began to type into the search box. This may be based off of my previous search behavior, or it may be because enough people have dejectedly turned to the web in times of frustrating writer’s block. Whatever the case, it definitely jumpstarted my brain for today’s blog topic.

Pick a topic you’re comfortable with or passionate about; now, take a polar opposite approach to it. This could mean exploring the controversies of Black Hat SEO, whereas you are an affirmed organic SEO-er, or taking a rival’s school of thought and explaining your own.This approach might shed new light for your readers, and get them thinking about the same old something from a different angle. If nothing else, it will require you to dust off your objective writing voice, which can help strengthen your blogging skills overall.

As it happens, the SERPs are quite a resourceful place for blogging inspiration; you ask a question with your keywords, search engines provide answers, and those answers can be the springboard towards a shiny new blog post.But there are other places you can find blogging inspiration! Here are the five places I turn to when writer’s block settles in... Consider What’s Trending Twitter has blossomed into an invaluable business tool for demographic research, brand management, and social media marketing. But above all, it’s become an undeniable one Mecca for interest-driven interaction and conversation. When you’re stumped, head over to search.twitter.com and peruse the trending topics, or do a basic keyword search to find out what people are saying about this, that, and the other thing. From here, you can pick a topic that piques your interest and is obviously abuzz at the moment. It’s a great way to compare the size of the potential audience with the relevancy of the topic. Ask the Audience Speaking of audience, there’s nothing like going straight to the source for inspiration. As I said, Twitter is a powerhouse for community. If you’re on Twitter for business-related reasons, then we can assume your Twitter community and your blog community are one in the same. When you’re fresh out of blog ideas, ask your followers what they want to read about. Free, genuine input from those who care- that’s a beautiful thing. An added bonus is that the resulting blog post will be a shareable hat-tip to your audience, for your audience. Stand on the Shoulders of Giants Check out the recent posts published by your favorite bloggers. Anything in particular that strikes your fancy? Write a response blog, or extrapolate on the blogger’s main points. Be sure not to plagiarize and to appropriately give credit where credit is due with links back to the original article. By writing a response to a favorite blogger’s post, you’ll be taking the pain out of choosing a topic as well as letting that blogger know you exist; that you dig their stuff enough to write an homage of sorts. It can be a real head-turner. Blogging about your daily accomplishments can be fun, but always remember to stay humble. Over confidence can be humorous, but only in moderation. It has to sound like it is intentional! Handle the workload well.

Take a Mental Break When all else fails, tune out for a while. Take a walk around the block or around the office; recharge with a favorite beverage, or find your zen with some funky music. When it comes to writer’s block, more often than not the problem isn’t that you’re devoid of creativity- it’s that you’re overworking your brain. Take a step back from the situation, let your head clear, and the answer will present itself sooner or later. These are the ways I overcome my writer’s block, and most of the time, they work like a charm. How do you decide what to blog about? Share your insight below and let’s start the conversation! Go! Social media technologies take on many different forms including magazines, Internet forums, weblogs, social blogs, microblogging, wikis, podcasts, photographs or pictures, video, rating and social bookmarking. By applying a set of theories in the field of media research (social presence, media richness) and social processes (self-presentation, self-disclosure) Kaplan and Haenlein created a classification scheme for different social media types in their Business Horizons article published in 2010. According to Kaplan and Haenlein, there are a great many different types of social media: collaborative projects (e.g., Wikipedia), blogs and microblogs (e.g., Twitter), content communities, social networking sites (e.g., Facebook), virtual game worlds, and virtual social worlds. Technologies include: blogs, picture-sharing, vlogs, wallpostings, email, instant messaging, music-sharing, crowdsourcing and voice over IP, to name a few. Many of these social media services can be integrated via social network aggregation platforms. Social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace.

“By giving people the power to share, we’re making the world more transparent.”

What would you do?

Would you want to make any gains in your life?

So I can’t have like magical help. With no magic at all that takes down traveling because I would if I could use magic or some sort of like crazy technology. I would like to go to the North Pole to see what that looks like and I’d like to see the Pyramids, but I wouldn’t want to waste like 15 hours on the flight. So I would want to spend a lot of my time with people that I love. Spend some time with friends and my family make new friends and probably do something exciting like jump around on trampolines or do flips off of giant diving boards. Like the pro ones.

If could improve both my financial my artistic status within the world I would want to display my art for mass amounts people so everyone can experience my viewpoint on the world because I think I’m a pretty happy viewpoint let think that people would benefit from seeing what my art can portray and the way I see the world but that sounds kind of egotistical.

What would you do? I think rather than taking an average approach and aspiring to make absurd amounts of money (which would be awesome) I would rather do something to make a difference. I would lead a revolution for the rights of every individual. We would fight the system and turn it on itself. t

A lot of things that could be changed in our society. For fun I would probably just buy a kick ass boat and name it ‘Labia.’ Then sail across the Caribbean with all my freinds. We could act like pirates and take over a deserted island. Nobody would ever tell us to slow dow`n.

SPECIAL THANKS To all my friends, I’m pretty sure that you’re all crazy and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I owe my life experiences to you vivacious few. We’ve had drunken journeys that can be said and some that will never be spoken again. As I write this, I prepare my departure from San Francisco. It’s been an unforgetable experience. I’ve become a better person because of each one of you for different reasons. You’ve pushed me to be a better student, a better artist, and a more rounded individual. Some of you even helped expand my pallete. Yes, I even eat tomatoes now. Never thought that day would come. Now even though that I am leaving I know that you will continue to be yourselves and excel at your selected mediums. I just hope that you will all remember me as I will remember you. I hold you all fondly in my heart. I shall return one day, but every day in between now and then I vow to live for the day.

Yours truly,
