mFlow: music-on-demand start-up

mFlow is a very nice and interesting start-up based in Chiswick. They do music streaming on demand, just like Spotify. You can listen it for free. I don't claim to understand their business model (OK, fine, you can buy music there as well, but so you can in zillion other places) but they are extremely nice.

I met with their founder about a year ago and he was super-enthusiastic about this service. Really glad they made it to the beta stage - and really hope they'll keep going with it.

Q: How To Sneak Into Google Office (A: NO WAY!)

This way clearly doesn't work, so don't try it at home to repeat it. [haiku url='http://sigizmund.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/going_to_google.mp3']

On engineers, physicists and mathematicians. Best quote ever.

An engineer thinks that his equations are an approximation to reality. A physicist thinks reality is an approximation to his equations. A mathematician doesn’t care.

Honestly, this could easily be the best and most apt phrase I ever heard. Does anyone know who should I attribute this quote to?
