media critic Péter György, whose phone rang. Sorry, I'll call you back. I'm working now. ( it wasn't an excuse ) It made HP realize that simply talking and thinking about problems is, in fact, work. ...and work that
interests him a lot. HP heard him say: Adam went on to become a renown media-artist, presenting his projects around the globe. So he continued researching this field,

of one thing, though: humanity everything great about sharing people starts with ideas learned early on about how people view those who are a bit different. , So he convinced HP and Adam to leave their jobs
