"Called blackbird presumably after the seventy one. I don't know but they're gonna make you know. Dial up service with a custom content language stack and custom rendering. It wasn't the web. They have content partners They have a lot of money. But it still wasn't the scale the web it wasn't to be compelling gates realized this and he turned the company on a dime and they couldn't find that. I'm not sure the timing so they decided to copy it and once we realized that everybody inside netscape felt even more urgency and more of the frenetic mood and so my chances do scheme disappeared when the job deal started brewing. But there was still a chance to do a companion language to job because java was compiled is compiled language. It's evolved improved quite a lot since then too but it was sort of serious advanced programmers. That cost a certain salary. Or hourly rate and people observe bill joy observed i marc andreessen and i observed in mature. Stack like microsoft. You really benefit from having a scripting language like visual basic which became visual basic script. And i three but didn't take on didn't take over. Kill javascript that you need to. Which is one is for. That component writers who are higher price and more expert and the other is for Scriptwriters public accountants designers graphic designers with some programming inclination. Anybody amateurs doesn't matter. There's a much more democratic approach there for procuring components. Together gluing them together. Somebody will say duct tape language. I don't really like but we saw bill joy in mark andreessen and we saw the need for companion language and gleaming are. i was to call javascript. I didn't like it. That was marketing plan. Mark called mocha which i liked and get marketing. I think didn't like that. So they said oh. There's some trademark and some software somewhere. That's so we can't use that. And they tried live script in august and that didn't last and then finally we got the trademark license in december nineteen. But the work. I did to prove that it could be done was important because i came in april and even the netscape was growing so fast they couldn't find open requisition in the client team for me so they hired me into the server team and i worked for a month on server team on what became a one one. So i was actually. I'd done protocol work at silicon graphics with great chessen For beleives intern. Grad student intern. Who knew all the unix founders. And greg was very interested in Protocols the next level with us i thought that. Cpi's wouldn't wouldn't scale it. He he was mistaken. And that unfortunately moore's law more than kept up and you have gigabit ethernet running with commissioner processors. But i worked on protocols at sgi colonel hacking and nfs. And things like that. So i i came into netscape to work on the side for a month but i was. I was thinking the whole time. What's did this language. Should it be easy to use. might at syntax even be more like natural language. Like hyper talk. which is bill. Atkinson's language and hypercard. If you re separate hard on early mac. And i thought well i'd like to do that. But management say make it look like java which looks like see from a distance. What was that mean as a braces. We're talking about visually like Management understand what the hell marketing management did like rick shelby new and we had a plan. Even that was. If you have this companion language you're going to glue things together between java javascript. C. you're going to have commerce in memory in the heap with data..

"I'm also teaching a class on artificial intelligence applied to science at Caltech. Another fantastic institution. I've spent some time with Peter because I went to Princeton undergrad and had a chance to hear him as a guest speaker. And then went to GSP to sit in on his class when he was teaching many many years ago back when I had more hair, and in that class are there any particular resources or books that you like to point people to for those who want to learn like, you said a lot lot of things have been coda fide in the last few decades. What's interesting is a lot of the things that I'm talking about are still not written down from the engineering science perspective. How do you manage a large ofter project? I'm not aware of the defining book. That describes that there's plenty of technical books about aspects of softer. But the culture of software is still evolving. An example is that a recent change is to essentially a pair programming where somebody writes code, another one checks it. There are languages a recent languages called the go language which. Is designed around that principle. Right. So we just presume that's how programming is done. These were all things that were not worked out at the time without plugging my own books. Too much. We teach how Google works in in Pierre Wendell in my class at Stanford, which is very very highly ranked class and having just done it. I still think that the basic lessons that we that we talk about and how Google works which are fundamentally it's the product it's the product it's the product it's recruiting it's recruiting it's recruiting and transparency of how you operate are sort of key lessons that we learned and they're caught in that book. And I think we can we can segue towards Google because we're going to spend quite a bit of time on it. And we may hit some of the intervening chapters along the way, you mentioned Bill joy earlier, and as you mentioned legendary for his prowess as a as a programmer who also then spent some time as venture capitalist, and it it it's when I look at it was an interviewer talk that given this is actually on the Stanford. Yes, be site. You mentioned an approach that he had one of his purchase. So he'd find an area of interest. Look up research papers about it. He figure out the two or three best authors, and then call them, and it a by the way, these are people who no one ever call. So they'd call them back. And then he would ask them. What's the most interesting thing in your field? And I bring this up because I am segues to another venture capitalist named John door. And but before we get into the role that John played Cording to my reading at least in your introduction to Google what what who has John door. What makes him special? You can answer that of course, in any order. John. Was this mythical figure that I'm at when I first joined son, he seemed everywhere, and he was one of these prodigies at sales..

"I wanted to know what I can do to ward off. I have been diagnosed with HP. So I want to see how I can protect my uterus as much as I can. Well, that doesn't become cancerous. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. First thing you wanna do is strengthen immune system, though, HP by the way is human papillomavirus. It's the most common sexually transmitted infection. It usually is not a problem on its own, but it can lead to various health issues, including female, reproductive, some guests. We've had. On the show. Ben say do not take the vaccine, you know, what I'm gonna say Georgia's you'll say the same thing. Great. Yeah. You want to build your immune system. It's the same idea that we were talking about with the lime disease a strengthening immune system. Stay away from problem foods, strengthen the intestinal lining. Your means system lives in the intestine largely when we talk about building the immune system in many ways, we're talking about keeping the intestine healthy. Make sure you're using a central fatty acids like the ultimate EFA's from you in jeopardy. I be getting on the healthy. Either the healthy blood sugar Packer, the healthy body, healthy body starter pack, one or the other personally, I would be getting a blood sugar pack, though, because of the relationship between the blood sugar and the immune system and then for the female reproductive system. All your fats are extremely important, and that's vitamin a and E specifically, and especially on there's also very important relationship between the health of the female reproductive system and good bacteria in the intestine of people. Don't talk about that. But good bacter-. During the tests and help make hormones and help clear hormones out of the buys, make sure you're using your nightly essence Rian Jackie which I consider to be the Primo probiotic supplement that anybody could get on so intestinal health and probiotic and a good probiotics edition, building the immune system and Claire go to the website criticalhealthnewScom or call that number one eight five five nine four nine seven two three four and good luck to you. William is in the Queens, New York. Hey, William thanks for calling. Hey. Hello. Uk's? My question is what are the best natural ways to reduce coronary artery blockages, gray question. Bernie's not doctor, Dr Franchi's, pharmacist, Ben. But go ahead. Great question. I couple of things first of all coronary blockages have a lot to do with deteriorating connective tissue, when the connective tissue starts to break down, many of the horrible signs of aging all the things that were terrified about as we get older, the stooping stooped over appearance, and the weakness and sending bones and deterioration of the blood vessels ensues when the blood vessel deterioration progresses. The body will patch up little Nixon cuts in the blood vessel in the coronary arteries with cholesterol and calcium and various plaques. And that's what we call. That's what ends up being called blockages. So building the connective tissue is one of the most important things you could do, and it has wonderful anti-aging benefits that's way to build a connective tissue is to make sure your take supplements. Like, the glucose gel caps anything that helps you Bill joy. Points and cartilage is going to have anti aging properties for the whole body. So I'd be doing the glucose gel caps. I'd be doing the nightly the beyond Tangy tangerine, which has all your electrolytes and vitamin C. You may also want to consider t leading agents, and these are supplements that can help help attract some of the the dirt that's in the in the blood vessels, causing the the stenosis or the the the blockages I would be doing things like sulfur, MSM sulfur and also something called an AC or necking at these knee and Jeffey products as well. The more talion has both of those in it. And then also don't forget about your plain old, primal primal panacea. You know, there's a guy named documents rat who wrote about how animals don't get heart attacks. And what he said was that heart disease was actually end blockages for that matter. We're all we're all forms of of scurvy and they were related to. Vitamin c deficiency animals make their own vitamin C in animals, don't get heart attacks. This is Dr Mathias rask's hypothesis. So making sure that you're getting on getting enough vitamin c that's one of those nutrients that we don't talk that. We seem to assume that everybody gets enough. But hardly anybody does that's because of the ridiculous deprivation allowance which is what I call the RDA which tells you that you only need sixty two hundred milligrams of vitamin c. A day you really need grams of it. And that's why one of the probably the best thing in my opinion about the beyond Tangy tangerine. It's got a lot of good things in it. But the best thing about it is a big old dose of vitamin C. I'm going to recommend also to go to one of our guests websites. My heart book dot com, Christian wild so website to take a look at his turmeric formula, which seems to work a lot for inflammation. Great. Yeah. Absolutely. Let's go to Tom with a text and tweet.

"And so. Oh complex they will effectively emerge as their own species in nineteen Ninety-three he pen to paper, titled the age of robots and this is a quote from that piece, computer, 'less industrial machinery exhibits the behavioral flexibility of single celled organisms. Today's best computer controlled robots are like these simpler, invertebrates a thousand fold increase in computer power in this decade should make possible machines with reptile like sensory and motor competence properly. Configured such robots could do in the physical world what personal computers now do in the world of data act on our behalf as literal minded slaves. Growing computer power over the next half century will allow this reptile stage will be surpassed in stages producing robots that learn like mammals. Muddled their world like primates, and eventually reason like humans, depending on your point of view humanity will then have produced a worthy successor or transcended inherited. Limitations and transformed itself into something quite new no longer limited by the slow pace of human learning and even slower biological evolution intelligent machinery will conduct its affairs on an ever faster ever, smaller scale, until course, physical nature has been converted to fine grain purposeful thought. Now, his ideas are predicated upon the assertion that consciousness, which is a quality. That's devilish difficult to define the fact, I would argue it's just as difficult to define as the term intelligence. He argues this arises from the material that is the mind is totally the product of our nervous system. Or if you wanna be a little more generous, the combination of our nervous system and our interactions with our environment's. So in other words, consciousness emerges from a system if that system meets the physical criteria if true, and I happen to believe that this is true that it then stands to reason that if you have a sufficiently complex system with powerful enough machines, we should be able to create an artificial entity that possesses consciousness if however consciousness arises from some other scientifically undiscovered or even undiscovered Rable quality, then it wouldn't matter. How complicated we build our toys, they would never become conscious. So in other words, if consciousness were the emergence from some other thing that science cannot address like a soul. For example. Then there's no way that we could create a conscious artificial being we can't create the soul. If that is in fact, how it works. I personally feel that that's not the case that our consciousness does arise from the material that it does come from our nervous system the complexity and the electrochemical processes of our nervous system. The question. I have is whether or not we will ever be able to replicate that in an artificial system not saying that it would be impossible just wondering if we will ever figure it out. It remains an open question. Nick Bostrom who served as the director of the future of humanity institute has written extensively about trans humanism. I talked about that a second ago that idea that we transcend being just humans. Through some process. Whether that means a computer, augmented person or a biologically, augmented person isn't really important at least from this perspective. It's very important from an ethical perspective. But he's using trans human to indicate this describes someone who has moved away from what we would define as being a human being today, and like kurzweil he has hype assize that the singularity will bring along with it, some means of extending our life spans indefinitely, but he feels that some of the more aggressive predictions are a little too optimistic. He has said that he felt that there is a less than fifty percent chance that we'll have developed any sort of superhuman intelligence by the year twenty thirty three he thinks it's going to happen. But it might take a bit longer than that some of the people who believe or have formerly believed the singularity to be around the corner aren't convinced it's necessarily going to be good for us. Venture capitalist Bill joy who co-founded SUN Microsystems has expressed concerns about it, and it wouldn't necessarily take a superhuman AI to do damage to us joy has pointed out that technology tends to advance our capabilities in all sorts of areas, including destructive ones..

"We'll watching the hunting of hill house. It's very good. I also watch trick or treat last night. It's a really good. We should do next week. We'll do around up of horror movies kessel for actual Halloween because I'd source comes out on Halloween. So you can have a little guide to what to watch tomorrow night. If you are like us, sometimes right like to be inside on Halloween, and there has been a really some really great horror films. We've been watching this Halloween. They're they're out there. They are great year for all right? So this is a story by Ben Alpert swift. Ooh up and thinking about doing it since last Halloween. I put a lot of research, and I got a paper route. So every morning, I do a dry run in my head. I picked the houses at random, then I see how I feel about it. If it goes into the root till feels wrong took fifty eight main street because it's where MRs night live's. And I really want to get away with it and not get caught. It's two weeks from Halloween pick up my costume. I don't. Too much effort into it. I want something I can dump quickly. So I settle for a black Cape. And ghoul mask doesn't really look scary. In fact, that looks pretty stupid. But that's what I like about it. I stopped doing the dry runs as Halloween got closer. I got a bus and walked a little bit. Then bought my supplies from shop. I'm pretty certain nobody I know will use. I wore baseball cap and pull the down to cover my face. Just to be sure I got a full shop so not to draw attention to the eggs and toilet paper their stuff doubts about the big day. My stomach was in flips all morning almost forgot about doing it. But next year, I'll be thirteen and then I'll be too old to get away with trick or treating the stomach flips kind of felt good. It's well through schoolmate fake promises to meet my friends and hang out. My dad mom are in when I get in and asked me what I'm doing. And I tell them probably just going to go around two bills or maybe just stay home and play fortnight child stuff. I don't I don't know what for nine is. But it seems it's video game. Yes. Video game. It's very popular holding mcnealy plays it and he's well over twelve. Yes. He does is big boy big boy guy. They make a big show about how tall lean and they end up. But I think they're happy that I'm not going out and causing trouble a hang out at home for a bit. And when the parent and kid group stopped coming around give it half an air that I put my costume supply. So my school back. I tell my mom that I'm off the bills, and my mom, I'm off Georgia's going to get my costume out of my bag and chain. So I complained I how cycles are his friends like old men George any twelve year olds. I don't think of Bill joy like names that are copy you cave, spring and bay Edward Norton. And all those words yet. Okay. The first house I get with toilet paper. I enroll it before it throw it the first throw land short. But the third hits the sweet spot in a tree. And it goes everywhere, I run away screaming laughing. I can't even run properly. It's so funny. The second is even better I run into the house knock on the door and dash old man comes to the door. And he looks really confused then he closes the door. Again, this time he's really angry, and he shouting and swearing I do one more time this time he's waiting and he tries to grab me. But I'm too quick. I run away. And I'm how God this is going to be better than I expected. I was gonna leave until like the fourth house on my mission mischief roup before I did the real thing. But I can't wait. I'm too excited. I get the exit of my backpack. My aim is brilliant. I hit them or Sadi's right in a windscreen. The next to hit the car is well top it off the second exit double euchre, then I get a big one. Then I window that grabs her attention..

"Now, we're in a world where people can pasta become baseball experts who truly utterly never have to watch a game because all they do seriously all they, it was crunch the numbers period. It's all about the numbers. This moneyball to the integral vigneault. Billy Beane himself will disavow, you know, fifty percent of what's in that book. Now, my final thing on this Jim Thome I must say. Boston guy on, obviously, you know, but I'm the shortlist of my favorite players of my life. Jim Thome e is right there and I'm an and hit my interactions with him. We're always incredibly pleasant and I have no of no naysayer. If anyone here knows of Lawrence, Thomas MIT of you ever heard anybody personally, say a negative word about Jim Thome you the man supposed to guy who at the six hundred and twelve home runs. I wanna hear about it because I don't know of any such person. This is look I, it's it's lower here in Chicago. He was here with the White Sox for four years. The owner of the White Sox. Jerry Reinsdorf said that Jim Thome is one of the three greatest people that he's ever met. That's how beloved he is in the White Sox organization. And he's just one of those guys where when he would walk into the clubhouse always had time for you always had his story was always pleasant, and I don't think that there's some guys you, you can see through the facade. I always felt like it was genuine. In with Jim Thome e. Well, that's my impression too, and I'm glad to hear you echo that and last thought move onto football. Alan Trammell while being a fantastic shortstop and all the rest of also a guy. You never heard anything bad about the one thing that he did that you won't see anymore, like Jack Mars fighting to stay in a game. He negotiated his own contracts and did several of them while he was actually practicing like he did. He did one with Bill joy where he was out on the field and legit came out and throw a number out of it. What do you think? And he took grounder and he said, yeah, that'll do. And they shook hands and his contract was done, and I don't think we're seeing that anymore. Think about how many guys won't even talk about a contractor, they're not negotiating during his season? Yeah, I think anytime you can actually negotiate contracts with the glove. On your hand, you're doing something that's going to last for long time with very predictable and an admirable that he would use his time. Time to make the case for his double playmate Lou Whitaker. Okay. Before we shift over to the NFL, let me tell everybody today's show is brought to you by simply safe home security. If you've ever looked for a security system, you know that it's tough. A lot of systems are too expensive too complicated that got.
