Solve for X: Mary Lou Jepsen on imaging the mind’s eye
1/2 of our minds allocated to visual
how do we get these images in our minds out of our minds.. in order to communicate better..
detox? seeclickfix style?
seeing vs imagining seeing very similar
i’m working on upping resolution
ted 2013 – could future devices read images from our brain
blown away by how tiny doses changed things..
i use mental images for rapid prototyping my ideas
now working on how to get my mental images out onto my computer screen faster… the remaining bottleneck.. just upping the brain scan resolution
instead of bigger magnets.. let’s make better magnets..
we’re going to be able to dump our ideas to digital media..
9 min – can you imagine being able to leapfrog language and communicate directly with human thought.. what would we be capable then.. and how would we be able to deal with the truths of unfiltered human thought

Mary Lou Jepsen (born 1964 or 1965) is an executive at Facebook / Oculus VR. Among her objectives at Facebook is leading a concerted effort to bring Virtual Reality to the next level. Previously she was Head of the Display Division at Google X where she led more than one “Moon Shot” program, reported to Sergey Brin, and advised and directed display and consumer electronic programs throughout Google. The Wall Street Journal reported that among her projects there she created Google Lego TV: displays composed of smaller screens that plug together like Legos to create vast, seamless images and “live walls” .. in other words from wall size interaction, television, video conferencing and gaming to virtual reality without having to wear anything on your face or body.
She was the co-founder and the first chief technology officer of One Laptop per Child (OLPC) a non-profit that generated more than $1B in revenue and helped create $30B in revenue for its for-profit partners. There she architected the $100 laptop with new screen architectures, new very low power management architecture, new battery technology, new mesh networking protocol, and new user interface all in record time – and shipped millions of them in an effort to start to transform education opportunities for children in the developing world.

OLPC’s $100 laptop was going to change the world — then it all went wrong https://t.co/XDnS47b2i7 via @verge https://t.co/15fCiCWtvP(http://twitter.com/tucksoon/status/987284776301326336?s=17)
Mitra’s vision was more minimalist than OLPC’s, but both projects were almost totally focused on distributing computers. Kids’ natural curiosity was supposed to do the rest.
curiosity can do the rest.. if.. we consider all of us kids.. (has to be all of us to work) and.. if we use the device to listen to and then facil that curiosity.. ie: 2 convos
And even today, co-founder Mary Lou Jepsen believes that laptops are vital for education. “Better teacher training only can get you so far when many of the teachers paid to show up don’t and many more are illiterate. Giving children access to information enables them to keep learning, to keep asking ‘why’ and ‘why not.’”
access to info is great.. connecting them to tribe and self.. deeper solution
