Hey, Everyone! I’m enjoying the project and this week’s round of questions have given me much to think on. I find myself struggling to search within myself to answer some of them. Introspectively I’ve found that it is been difficult to put my thoughts into words. Especially when it comes to elaborating on the ideas I stand on. That being said, this project been forcing me to sit down understand myself and who I am as a person. Going forward I hope to become more fluent in expressing my thoughts and ideas.
So again thanks for reading and taking part & Here is this week’s round of questions!
The way it works is every week readers submit their answers to the questions in the comments section along with a question they would like to see next week. You can choose to answer as many of the questions you’d like. I understand sometimes a question can be sensitive in nature and one wouldn’t want to answer it. Commentators are also encouraged to share their blog so readers can find out more about them.
Thank you for supporting this project and I hope you enjoy reading and taking part!
Who’s the most influential person in your life? Why?
At this point in my life, the person who has the most influence on me would have to be my wife. What I’ve learned from being in a relationship is that every decision no matter how small it may seem to me, I have to remember to take my life partner into account. How does this affect her? Does it align with our goals and aspirations for life? Does she really want to eat pizza for dinner? xD
AshleeG with two questions! Lets say one is from XP NUGGETS =D
Do you feel our technological advancements will eventually become hazardous to humans or continuously beneficial and why?
I think the two are directly correlated. Advancement in science can be used to destroy or to build. It all boils down to how we as humans apply new tech as it comes along.
Also, how do you feel about the idea of independent war robots (robots with self-thought)?
Scary. I agree with the thought leaders in the field of artificial intelligence. The use of AI in war should be banned. The idea you can mass produce drones with artificial intelligence is frightful. We’ve already seen how Elon Musk’s AI defeated some of the best professional DOTA players in the world with ease. And AI right now is in it’s infancy. The technology is only going to get better. The amount of destruction a AI Driven drone army can do would be devastating. Imagine if the technology gets into the hands of terrorist. Lets not go there please.
When you relish, when the leader of the Party you are on the other side from is made to appear bad in the press-What does that say about you?
Ruh-oh politics. I wish the focus would be more so on policy not on the public figures. If the leader of someones public party is seen in a negative light it doesn’t make the person who voted for said leader a bad person. It is distracting, focus on policy and solutions to the problems we face as a country.
What do you think the best thing you have to offer to society is?
Wow. Ok, let me take a stab at answering this. My legacy? In terms of my sphere of influence, I enjoy encouraging everyone around me. You got an idea? You want to create something? Alright lets make it happen, I’m with you. I’ll support you along the way. I think the world needs more people who encourage others. Its easy to put others down. There is already too many people out there bashing each other. I’d rather help create than to destroy.
Thanks again for reading and chiming in! Together we’ve taken the project into it’s 5th week! Woohoo! Is there anything you would like to see differently? Any comments or suggestions please do drop a line below!
P.S. I’m excited to begin the XPN podcast this week and hope to have the audio up next week!
