What should I do with my life? I am 20...

My daily news reading led me to that question http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2725893, What should I do with my life? I am 20.

I suspect I'll die without a solid answer :) but the "Big Kahuna" epilogue is a good start before further physical and metaphysical research.

Steve Jobs' 2005 Stanford inspiring speech

Steve Jobs' 2005 Stanford Commencement Address

Drawing from some of the most pivotal points in his life, Steve Jobs, chief executive officer and co-founder of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, urged graduates to pursue their dreams and see the opportunities in life's setbacks, including death itself, at the university's 114th Commencement on June 12, 2005.

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
Steve Jobs

Zero Silence screenshot

A documentary film about young people in the Middle East who have grown angry over the authoritarian regimes they live in and who are using the Internet to bring about change in their societies where free speech is controlled or censored. They are part of a new generation that uses the Internet to get the free word out and to organize, mobilize, collaborate and fight injustice.

Among other topics, the production will explore the impact of the Internet and non-traditional media such as Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter and whistle-blowing sites on the Arab world and beyond and to what extent these digital media tools can spur society change.

Greenpeace to Facebook: Unfriend Coal!

Greenpeace to Facebook: Unfriend Coal!

Greenpeace has been talking  a lot about Facebook lately.

"We were alarmed in January by the company's announcement that it would build a coal-powered data center in Prineville, Oregon. Facebook should be run on 100 percent renewable energy. That clear demand started spreading on the social network website this week, and will grow until the company announces a decision to really go green. The new data centre won't be ready until 2011, and people power has moved the company before."

Greenpeace started a campaign to persuade Facebook go green on it's new data-center. I wont copy paste. I am giving you bellow a list of hyperlinks covering all things being said.

Do schools kill creativity?

Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining (and profoundly moving) case for creating an education system that nurtures creativity, rather than undermining it.

With ample anecdotes and witty asides, Robinson points out the many ways our schools fail to recognize -- much less cultivate -- the talents of many brilliant people.

"We are educating people out of their creativity," Robinson says. The universality of his message is evidenced by its rampant popularity online.

Κομοτηνή - Ονομασία

Αρκετά χρόνια έμενα στην Κομοτηνή και πότε δεν ασχολήθηκα με την πηγή της ονομασίας. Είχα επαναπαυτεί στο μόνο στοιχείο που είχα ακούσει, ότι κατά την περίοδο της Τουρκοκρατίας η πόλη λεγότανε Κουμουτζήνα.

Σήμερα ξεφύλλισα το βιβλίο της Dr. Μαρίνας Π. Ζωγράφου "Αρχαία Σύγχρονη Κομοτηνή Ροδόπη" και ανακάλυψα ενδιαφέροντα στοιχεία γύρω από το θέμα της ονομασίας και την ιστορική πορεία της πόλης από τη δημιουργία της.

Φόβος - Ενοχές - Ανθρώπινες Σχέσεις ... Osho

Τρεις έννοιες που μεταφράζονται και σε συναισθήματα. Τρεις από τους βασικούς σταθμούς στην πνευματική εξέλιξη μας. Τρεις δαίμονες με του οποίους παλεύουμε καθημερινά. Παρακάτω σας παραθέτω στα ελληνικά λόγια του Osho πάνω στις έννοιες αυτές. Εμπνευσμένα αποσπάσματα που αναμφίβολα σου μεταφέρουν την ενέργεια του ομιλητή. Τα κείμενα βέβαια προϋποθέτουν κάποια "προετοιμασία" για την ολοκληρωμένη κατανόησή τους.
