We Do What We Are Told

Milgram’s 37 (we do what we are told) by Peter Gabriel from the wonderful “So” album is related to the Milgram experiment. This was a social experiment by the late Stanley Milgram that showed how many people were actually prepared to give a possibly lethal shock to another if told to do it.

Within this one line is one our biggest crimes.  With this excuse we have committed the worst acts throughout history.

We do what we are told…

This beautiful song came to mind when watching something that turned me back onto my original course and not take the easy way out.

Let’s Reinvent the Wheel – Again

How many times do you think the ‘wheel’ has been invented, and recreated? How much time and effort has been wasted in creating the ‘wheel’ – it should have only been invented once. Once an idea is created is needs a structure to hold it, so that others can find it and expand on it. Not hidden within the departments and offices of the world only to waste billions in resources that do the same thing later. We need the Internet to grow up and learn from itself.
