The other path

It started in the early morning (around 03:30) my mind was racing and I suddenly remembered an idea I had two years ago to solve some NHS issues. I kept in the middle on the name whether it would be the Apple iTome, or the Google Tome, the idea was laced with a different approach towards solving some of the NHS issues. That kept slapping the back of my brain when I suddenly remembered something else. It was from my early years, it was a Sharp PC-7000.

Sharp PC-7000

You might think it is too old to be useful, but you would be wrong. You see, Sharp tried something different and even as some surpassed them, we need to consider the impact that VHS had, yes, it did beat Sony Betamax, yet technologically speaking Betamax was superior, it was one of the few cases where marketing decided future paths and now that we are at crossroads, it is time to look back to some old ideas. It got me thinking about a new kind of display, a setting for displaying RAW graphics and using RAW as a standard format , not merely in software, but in hardware too. It got my mind racing on a new display that is the thickness and size of 10 A-4 pages, but laminated. In addition, there is a different approach when we start doing this to displays that are A6, optionally A5. A different approach to how and what we display, and more important how we go about its use, because that too is under scrutiny. We tend to follow a pack of greed driven wolves hoping to get a share and we forgot to look at the innovations of the past and how we can redirect them in today’s markets. 

In this there are options that can be captured now with innovation patents and even as that time is a lot shorter, it allows some to get ahead of the curve. The second part is how displays get their information, we go about the same route as everyone else, but we forget that there is a reason why a player like Hasselblad is pretty much the only player with a medium format video option in 4K, why do you think that is? Because they followed Canon, Nikon, Fujitsu and Minolta, or is that because they had a really good idea and stuck to their guns? It brought them more than anyone ever bargained for and they are about to cash in.

When technology and not marketing decides the future, you end up with better solutions, not pronounced innovations, but actual innovations. A lot of people forgot about that side of the equation. I decided to remember that part and set up a stage (this blog) where I can make some of these idea’s public domain and let the thinking innovators become real winners, not merely winners through the eyes of their presenting marketing pack.

First of two

I had to take a small break, we all need to do this, but the realisation that the deposition of Ghislaine Maxwell Brough me was a little too overwhelming. Yes, we go from what we know versus what we can prove, yet the beginning giving us “Ms. Maxwell, when did you first recruit a female to work for Mr. Epstein?” With the response “I don’t understand what you mean by female”, so pardon my lack of empathy or diplomacy. Yet, when did she stop realising she had (saggy) tits and a vagina? There is a basic lack of understanding here and yes, we all accept that she should be not be given any understanding and comprehension here either. That is the setting she is going towards and that is the situation she faces. Now that she is begging for a fair deal, where was that understanding when the victims of Jeffrey Epstein went to court? She was not really into a fair deal then either, was she? And the stage that evolves from there is not a nice one either, we can hide behind the conspiracy theorists that are popping up all over, or we can go with the transcripts and depositions, two bad choices from the get go. If we look beyond, we need to see on HOW Ghislaine Maxwell was trained and prepped. Then an idea sprung to mind, it is seen on page 412 of the deposition “MR. PAGLIUCA: I think we are out of time, counsel”, the entire tactic was set so that questions could not be asked. Yet when a defendant knowingly intentionally sets the stage for time, the clock should be stopped, any question knowingly and intentionally evaded adds 10 minutes to the clock. In case of Ghislaine Maxwell with a question having to be risked 28 times, we see that she get to be deposed for an additional 280 minutes. I wonder if her counsel was ready for that. It is merely a thought, yet I feel sure I cannot be the only one having that thought, and even as this would be a most delightful idea on Ghislaine Maxwell, she is not the only, not by a long shot. 

Yet, I have no real answers at present, I cannot fix everything (at times I cannot fix anything). Yet the station of feelings that anyone would have is that we want the fix things that do not add up, it is a natural stance, at least for trouble shooters, it is, it might be for a troubled shooters too, but that is another discussion. 

It gets me to my predicament, I created a weapon system called Gordian One, it was designed to sink participating vessels of the Iranian navy (and optionally a really ugly dinghy too), yet now I realise that it will work on any vessel (as it would), if the test works, it could end shipping business as we know it, a side effect I am not proud of, but a person has got to eat and capitalising on appeasing greed driven people is not the worst sin to have. One could be the opening move for facilitation to the other. IF one works, the others have more value and when you deliver, there is every chance that they will too, continuation is a great taskmaster. It gets me to there other IP, IP that only now could work. The first is a new device called the Tome. Whether it becomes an iTome, or a Google Tome is beyond my care. I designed the concept to impact the cost of the NHS, a setting where the need for paper diminishes to a much larger degree is important, the setting was also a station to improve timelines and cut out several steps that doctors and hospital administrations need to rely on. A larger station of costs that dwindle on all in that environment, but as I saw it, any block of cost taken away lowers the cot of the NHS and offers a station for more staff, how could I not think that through. The fact that Google (or fruity fruit fruit) got a setting for additional revenue is not a failing, it is to some extent a one off and when a company knows that this is a state where millions of devices are sold, multiple nations move towards a new setting and renew a system that required overhaul for decades is not a bad step. 

So how did Ghislaine Maxwell fit into all of this? Consider of the accusations against her, and the dwindling feelings of her innocence in all this, and here I am, a simple person (or is that a simpleton), who came up with a weapon that could end shipping as we know it. And it is up for sale. Am I any better? My weapon is not meant to be used, but then Alfred Nobel had the same excuse when he came up with that plan, he merely thought of a solution to give relief to engineers. We tend to set two standards, one we hold ourselves to as we are allegedly and seemingly unable to consider bad ideas of our inventions, and the other one where we hold others to, they should have known better. It is a setting of hypocrisy and I won’t have it. We cannot set ourselves to one value, all whilst we know that there are two values in play.
