    Now playing SpaceCollective
    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.
    The sticker network is a network made with wirelless stickers.
    Control over the internet leads to a new form of independent network: the sticker network. This is in fact an open internet wich may interconnect wirelless routers or work as standalone. All you have to do is stick arround. Glue stickers everywhere.
    Large quantities of stickers are cheap. These special sticker work as antena mirrors shortening the path between open wifi routers and allowing free internet access for everyone. You can glue the stickers anywhere, and by doing it you are creating ad hoc networks. Wich may be independent from ISPs.

    Look for this sticker symbol:

    Its easy to implement a camera on a GPS. It would be most useful if using Google maps to point to a location we would get the QR code for that location and print some calling cards to give our friends/customers. They could then get to their cars, show the calling card to the GPS camera and automatically get the directions to the holiday house, the nice beach bar or the amazing restaurant. This is so simple I that it can't be called a thing of the future.

    I would also use QR codes to automatically point a telescope to a star/planet.

    Just like we can today draw on paper, it will come a time when we can actually draw lines on paper with our fingers. Paper will actually respond to our drawings with computing power: we will draw a set of intercepting lines, like if we were using Smalltalk, and paper will recognize it imediatelly as a spreadsheet. We can then draw a raw graphic and paper computing will connect that graphic with the raw spreadsheet behind the scenes. We will have real notebooks or books that we can carry arround that can actually be used to make calculations or anotations because inteligent paper can recognize our scribble and interact with it.
    This kind of app could be made today, even without the actual superpaper, but thinking as if that superpaper was already here. Data in ebooks can be collected automatically so we can use it and share it with our own annotations, graphics, modifications. And computer power can be used to recognize our scribbles, ideas, and apply them to data.

    i had this idea for a solar generator (sorry the clumsy pic)

    the solar laser eats up the water, and steam makes the generator work
    a part of the electric power generated could be stored to change the lens according to sun position

    Black holes were discovered because on periodic pictures taken of the night sky there were spots where you never had stars.

    White holes are, according to wikipedia:

    In astrophysics, a white hole is the time reversal of a black hole. While a black hole acts as an absorber for any matter that crosses the event horizon, a white hole acts as a source that ejects matter from its event horizon. The sign of the acceleration is invariant under time reversal, so both black and white holes attract matter. The only potential difference between them is in the behavior at the horizon.

    Stephen Hawking said white holes are the same as black holes, once quantum mechanics is taken into account.

    It just came to my mind, and probably to many others, that what you may have in reality is a grey hole. eg, a hole that functions like a valve. It can absorb or eject matter, according to the needs of that particular part of the universe.

    You see, just like you can think of planets like if they were atoms, you could have a kind of a macro cell composed by stars, planets, comets, etc. Imagine, on the borders of this macro cell is a kind of "skin" where you have holes. Some of them are now acting as absorbers some are ejecting matter. Like the walls of a vein (?)

    So by this perspective, they are not black holes nor white holes, they are "grey" holes, or better, valves. We just cant see them doing both things because they don't change quickly. Or perhaps we didn't yet find one that is changing his state.

    The interesting part of all this would be trying to find the skin of the macro cell with the location of the holes. It would be like children do: connecting dots to get the picture :D

    Communication. Two brains, a message, a universe in between. What is a brain? We call it a brain. Two different brains in the same brain category we call brain. Brains are made of matter, they process information. Matter is energy. Ideas are energy. Ideas can get out of the brain. Ideas can travel transformed in words, drawings, radio waves, light. Ideas flow across the space between the two brains. Ideas can travel slow, fast, extremely fast, like a virus across the planet. Can we put an internet server on the moon? Yes we can. Can we communicate with that server? in 1969 we received TV images from the moon, so yes, its possible, that is the idea behind any artificial satellite. Can we create a satellite of love? If we can connect the moon to earth with the internet, can we connect the moon with mars? Can we build a network of artificial satellites around the sun? Can we space this satellites in a way they connect to each other? Can we expand our minds across the universe by creating a robot which drops a small router behind his path in his way to another galaxy? And imagine all this routers connected to our homeland internet. Once the robot finds an alien, we can instantly communicate with him. What shall we say to him? Hi! please save our planet from the madness of the warlords. Please come and take them on a tour.
