In culture, we are taught to distinguish history & story as two separate concepts. Some (falsely) think of history being a masculine version of story (his story). However, history & story can be used interchangeably. Here's why.
Magic exists! Well, if you have listened to me lately, you will hear that everything exists (including fiction). When everything exists, we can recapture the entirety of language from those who impose restrictions on Existence. We have all heard "that does not exist". We can now say, "that" does exist & "that" is a useful concept.
I'm happy to see my own homespun approach have a strong connection to an established Philosophical branch. The Philosophy of Language (Wikipedia) brings concepts together into a system of logic to yield magical & insightful connections in Existence.
Philosophies are conceptual models. Conceptual models have a domain language. If we expand the scope of certain definitions, we have the ability to expand consciousness. If we are able to make more associations between concepts, consciousness expands.
I'm evolving a philosophy that has it's own domain language. The domain language is similar to their common cultural definitions, however I expand the scope of these words. Expanding the scope of these words enables conceptual patterns to be reused across different scopes in Existence.
Automated testing helps to ensure that your software does not have regressions as you make changes. These changes include refactorings, new features, bug fixes, etc. A Software product has an intricate set of behavior which includes a large number of edge cases.

With all of the revelations over how the NSA is snooping over your personal communications, companies storing and controlling your data, encryption backdoors and the fact that it's always crackable, one thing is becoming clear.
I set up briantakita.com using Github Pages & metalsmith. Overall, it took some effort to setup & learn, but it turned out to be fairly painless. In this aritcle, I talk about setting up the DNS to point briantakita.com to btakita.github.io.
The wonderful web makes it very easy for someone to publish their thoughts and opinions, good and bad, true and false. If you find yourself at the wrong end of a post that shows up in your Google results, the implications can be very damaging. It ceases to be a matter of truth, but a matter of marketing.
Fortunately, you can take control over your name on the web, without having to spend thousands of dollars that online reputation repair firms charge.
