How to Avoid Being a One-hit Wonder

The person who makes hit after hit does so by a combination of two factors - he has the necessary knowledge about the fundamentals, and when he lands that hit that makes him visible, he leverages the new social network this opens to him. He uses the newly available brainpower to him to make the next hit.>

Ninja For Hire

The Wall Street Journal investigates the path and rise of the job title, "ninja." Over 800 self-titled ninjas are now public on LinkedIn- but is the ninja always a ninja or can they become a samurai?

The phenomenon started in 2003 and apparently really began to take off last year. Jinichi Kawakami, one of the last living ninjas in Iga, Japan, insists that "ninjas aren’t assassins and a real ninja must have stealth, intelligence, a righteous heart and patience."

Anyways, watch the video my ninjas..

Defining Digital Down

[Interview with Jamin Winans of Ink on piracy]

ed. note:AMNP does not condone any form of unabridged piracy, but does support rapid movements in making information free. So be careful my ninjas!

In the far away lands and home of counterfeiting and obscene film production numbers like Bollywood (India), Nollywood (Nigeria) and China, piracy has taken over a new meaning.

Instead of hurting the film industry, it is an essential part to properly promoting a film, as crowds seek an air-conditioned reward for their patronageAat "high-tech" theaters. While the cost between legitimate and pirated copies reaches parity, the only markets that are hurt in the process are the export markets, but those do not define a movie’s true success.

Digital down as it seems will be the future of Hollywood- once we realize that information can not be worth anything.>

Bhutan and the Modern Terma

St. Pema Lingpa in the form of Prime Minister, Jigmi Y. Thinley, a Penn State graduate and a former royal administrator and diplomat, has revealed a modern terma or hidden treasure for Bhutan and the rest of the world. Working with GPI Atlantic, a maritime think tank, the relatively new monarchy has come up with and introduced a new gross national happiness (GNH) curriculum into the country’s education system.

GNH rests on four pillars of value: environmental conservation; cultural preservation and promotion; sustainable and equitable development; and good governance, including the development of active and responsible citizenship. These pillars are divided into seventy-two quantifiable variables, designed to provide hard data about significant issues.

The outcome, said Thinley, should be:

"an educational system that is quite different from the conventional factory, where…children are just turned out to become economic animals, thinking only for themselves." Instead, graduates would be "more human beings, with human values, that give importance to relationships, that are eco-literate, contemplative, analytical." They would know that their own happiness was found in giving happiness "to your spouse, to your family, to your neighbours a and to the world at large.">
