philosophical investigations

Philosophical Investigations is a brilliant and funny piece of philosophy before Chris Rock and Sienfeld.  

Its true that perfect communication is impossible, but that doesn't mean we can't try to improve the suboptimal communication that happens anyways.  The social web is changing the whole paradigm.  We no longer have to analyze our own thoughts, but the sum of world voices can be analyzed for their intended and expected meaning.  

Just as the difficulty of NP complete problems doesn't stop young mathematicians from attempting artificial intelligence, ludwig doesn't stop internet communication to be omnipresent.  

my amazon review:

review of gandhi's autobiography "my experiments with truth"

Gandhi may have been the only honest successfull politician ever.  
If Gandhi had been born before the American Revolution, the declaration of independence may have including the protection of truth as one of the self evident responsibilities of the goverenment, and maybe pursuit of not so self-evident truths as a right...
Gandhi's autobiography along with The Daily Show's book on Democracy Inaction have inspired me to write my own book.
