Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

is this the end, or just the beginning?

December21

here we go!

or, where do we go from here?

end of days

is it the end of the world, as you think you know it? or, are the best days of your lives, yet ahead?

hey… what if the Mayans just some how knew about the Democrats and the Fiscal Cliff? timing is everything if nothing.

in any event, Merry Christmas.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

all you need to know is what others use

December27

Christmas has come-and-gone. However, what remains are on-going decisions relative to technology acquisitions.

Is it a new computer, or the iPad?

That’s simply short-term thinking around new toys.

However, here, yes right here, is is your peek into the reality relative to what’s to come (this will be affecting trends, and the stock market)…

At some point, workers – such as journalists and accountants, will remain tethered to PC’s (the generic terms for desktop or laptop computers) because they create some and various forms of information, while decision makers – like executives, will primarily use mobile technology represented by iPads and Tablets because they mostly care about information, and the leveraging of it (they use information).

So… who’s leading this trend? Follow the money. Then think in terms of convergence.

Soon… Look for my continued thinking around “video anywhere”, “Apple”, “Fiber”, “Data Centers”, and “Venture Capital”.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

christmas Eve

December24

It’s Christmas Eve. Quiet. But, there are also high expectations.

This is Emma Jo on Mom’s Powerbook in front of the great room Christmas tree tracking Santa Claus’s progress into North America. He’s agonizingly close. And, so is bed time.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

God's Secret

December25

Even though God is in my life (what choice do I have?), I don’t know for sure that Christ rose from the dead. However, I can see that he changes the world every day.

The inspiration; the challenge; the secret is living your life like Christ. Its such an ambition, if you will, that can rally and unite men of all faiths – be they Christian, Jewish or Muslim.

For background, and the sake of this post, let’s assume that Christ was a real person.  

Though nobody knows when He was born (and the exact date is not important – especially given the “spirit” of this post) … the fact that He brought light and good news into the world during a time when the world was under the oppressive yoke of the Roman empire and other oppressive foibles of religion – both Jewish (NOTE: I feel my Jewish Brothers) and pagan. How strange must have been this good news – wise men, Magi, and kings bowing down to an infant they were compelled to believe radiated divinity. What an inversion of man’s power to rule! The world was turned right side up on that night. For no flags were unfurled when GOD – as He is understood today – crept into the world, from the arms of a little girl (that would be Mary).

It’s the world’s best known secret.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
