The Dangers of Cognitive Bias

Our brains are composed of 100 billion neurons and 100 trillion synaptic connections.   Yet, despite that vast processing power, our brains are unable to process all the data entering through our senses. Because of that, our brain takes shortcuts. These shortcuts are called heuristics or cognitive biases, and sometimes they can lead us to incorrect conclusions. In my Abundance 360[…]

Inflection Point – When It All Explodes

The earliest Internet was built by the military, designed to help scientists around the nation gain access to those rare room-sized computers located at MIT, Stanford and a few key institutions.
