This is a partial list of people, books, videos and whatever else that I’ve used to refine my thinking.  I hope that by diving in you’ll deepen your own understanding of this amazing emergent world and our place in it…

Thomas P.M. Barnett


The Pentagon’s New Map: War and Peace in the Twenty-First Century

Blueprint for Action: A Future Worth Creating

Great Powers: America and the World After Bush


This is the complete video from the first time I ever saw Dr. Barnett, Labor Day Weekend, 2004.  This covers all of the material found in his first book, The Pentagon’s New Map.  If you watch only one video on this page, make it this one.

This is the most recent recorded version of The Brief, containing far more information from the second and third books.

Other videos featuring Dr. Barnett are found here.

Ray Kurzweil


The Age of Spiritual Machines: When Computers Exceed Human Intelligence

The Singularity Is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology


Ray talking for an hour at the Googleplex about exponential growth curves and their impact on our technological future.  If you watch only one video from this page, watch Thomas Barnett.  But if you watch two… don’t miss this.

A 2009 interview at the Computer History Museum.

Ray speaking at the SETI Institute Seminar Series.

Ken Wilber


I’ve read them all… for specific information check the publisher’s website, Ken’s personal website, or your favorite bookstore.

President Barack Obama

Here are links to his speeches that I believe are completely reflective of an Integral perspective.  I have no idea whether or not he or anyone in his administration has read Ken Wilber… but I sure as hell know Integral when I hear it.

President Obama’s Nobel Lecture, accepting the Nobel Peace Prize


I get all of my poker training from the amazing coaches at Deuces Cracked.


I support, and get a large amount of my scientific news from, PhysOrg.com.
