Meditate in Science

After years of thinking about what's exactly the difference between super succeed persons (Science in my concern) and ordinary people , I've come up with this :
"You have to Meditate in Science .... There is no other way".
The set point was an article in Newyork Times ; This article is about the importance of Practise and hard working which is not new of course . The difference starts by this sentence :
Mozart played a lot of piano at a very young age, so he got his 10,000 hours of practice in early and then he built from there.
 This is exactly what I want to talk about : 10,000 hours ! If you spend 3 hours a day on an specific work , it takes about 10 years and if you devote more ,say 6 hours per day , it takes 5 years to be master in your stuff .

This kind of devotion needs a self-disciplined mind and a powerful motivation , and that's why I say you have to meditate in science . In meditation you almost cut your communications with around world and just concentrate on your breath, for example . But if you extend this mindset to your specific interest (any interest , from music to science ,etc.) and start to meditate on it , you'll get there so sooner as you imagine .
Again , it needs hard self-discipline, but as soon as you start it, you will get used to it little by little . Inertia occurs when you want to start something, but after that stage, another inertia needs to stop you ; and in your situation you don't need second type of it anymore :)

Good luck on your journey ...

New mapping technology from Microsoft.

This is what that changed my viewpoint to Microsoft Research for ever !!
This fantastic brand-new technology from Microsoft is exactly what I though about in Visualization course . I wanted to mix the same idea with Google Map , but I didn't know how to start :)
Anyway , Microsoft implemented it comprehensively , and I'm really excited about it . This is a glamorous technology that delighted me deeply .

Well done :)

Where is the privacy Google BUZZ ?

Lately , the Google company have presented their new brand product , Google Buzz . Though, it seems that Buzz is an interesting technology , the level of privacy is awful ! As soon as I award this problem, I turned it off . Mail address is a key in privacy and personal stuff and Google should think about it more conservative . I Hope they fix this problem soon ....

Update 1: This is the first attempt of Google to fix the problem .

So long till now

OOPS ! It seems that I'm not an active blogger anymore !! I think it's because of social networks like Facebook and Twitter . They are really addictive .

Not really important .... I'll be active more by the end of February and the nature of posts tends to be more technical and less personal .
