“It is not a bad idea to get in the habit of writing down one’s thoughts. It saves one having to bother anyone else with them.” – Isabel Colegate
“As a rule, if you insist on speaking your mind, you will inevitably find yourself somewhere where everyone hates you.” – Scott Berkun
My name is Tony “Bulldozer00” (BD00) DaSilva. Like you, I’m just a regular person trying to find my path through life. So, if you need to see some “stinkin’ badges” or other credentials in order to read any further….. then don’t read any further.
One of the goals of this blasphemous blog is to stir up some kind of emotion and evoke a chuckle from you, even if it is uncomfortable. I believe that some of the verbal diarrhea I spew in here has a grain of truth to it, but I also like to think that I’m not married to my thoughts.
If you’re still here, then here’s a mashup of the topics that interest me:
Life long learning, social networking, connectivity, interfaces, dynamic interactions, perceptual control theory, cybernetics, feedback loops, entropy and the 2nd law of thermodynamics, holarchy, tangled hierarchies, simplicity, complexity, ambiguity, conceptual integrity, systems thinking, abstraction, quantum physics, religion-independent spirituality, meditation (which I’m incredibly inept at!), writing, (so-called) leadership, creativity, innovation, project management, executive management, software product lines, UML, SysML, C++, software architecture, distributed real-time communication middleware, company cultures, manifesting change, fishing, golfing, exercising, electronic gadgets, and of course, moderate partying!
