"Please, don’t worry so much. Because in the end, none of us have very long on this Earth. Life is fleeting. And if you’re ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day… make a wish and think of me. Make your life spectacular. I know I did."

Will, she’s been dead two years and that’s the shit I remember. Wonderful stuff, you know, little things like that. Ah, but, those are the things I miss the most. The little idiosyncrasies that only I knew about. That’s what made her my wife. Oh, and she had the goods on me, too; she knew all my little peccadillos. People call these things imperfections, but they’re not — aw that’s the good stuff. And then we get to choose who we let into our weird little worlds. You’re not perfect, sport. And let me save you the suspense. This girl you met, she isn’t perfect either. But the question is: whether or not you’re perfect for each other. That’s the whole deal. That’s what intimacy is all about. Now you can know everything in the world, sport, but the only way you’re findin’ out that one is by givin’ it a shot. You certainly won’t learn from an old fucker like me. Even if I did know, I wouldn’t tell a pissant like you.

— Robin Williams (as Dr. Sean Maguire to Will Hunting)

Why we must strive for diversity in SF/F →

A beautiful argument in defence of diversity. While it concerns science-fiction, the author’s points surely speak to our reality as well.

Singapore - The Social Laboratory

Excellent longread by Shane Harris on protection of national security & engineering a more harmonious society via mass surveillance and big data.

Singapore was the perfect home for a centrally controlled, complex technological system designed to maintain national order. […] “In Singapore, people generally feel that if you’re not a criminal or an opponent of the government, you don’t have anything to worry about.”

[Foreign Policy: The Social Laboratory]
