You and Me -- Penny & The Quarters
The Five Remembrances by Thich Nhat Hanh
1) I am of the nature to grow old. There is no way to escape growing old. 2) I am of the nature to have ill health. There is no way to escape ill health. 3) I am of the nature to die. There is no way to escape death. 4) All that is dear to me and everyone I love are of the nature to change. There is no way to escape being separated from them. 5) My actions are my only true belongings. I cannot...
3 Minute Movie Review -- Silver Linings Playbook
Bradley Cooper is magnetic. He plays Pat. Pat with bipolar disorder who caught his wife Nikki having shower sex with a tenured colleague at the school where they are both teachers, and beat him silly. The dude said, “You should probably leave,” when Pat walked in on them. Total douche. Pat gets out of the looney bin and decides to commit himself to winning Nikki back. Bad idea. Reads...
3 Task Management Apps
Not sure which of these would be most helpful for a social media consulting co. with a few clients and a distributed team. Interesting (but maybe not surprising) that task management has blossomed into a super competitive space. Asana: Sandglaz: Smartsheet:
North Koreans Confirm Existence of Unicorns
From TIME. Obviously unicorns don’t actually exist. I don’t totally know how to feel about this. I feel: - that this is hilarious - that it’s strange to find something so laughable when there are 25 million people being fed this as fact, and they probably (well, possibly) don’t know how laughable it is - sorta scared for the world - really pissed off at supreme...
How to Start a Startup // V1
“How to Start a Startup,” by Paul Graham. “Startup = Growth,” by Paul Graham. From somewhere in Mark Cuban’s book, “How to Win” : The best place to raise money is from your customers. V1 of my thoughts on the subject.
Innovation * (Feminine Hygiene + Non-Profits)
And Seth Godin says: The thing about most cause/welfare non-profits is that they haven’t figured out how to solve the problem they’re working on (yet). Yes, they are often offer effective aid, or a palliative. But no, too many don’t have a method for getting at the root cause of the problem and creating permanent change. That’s because it’s hard (incredibly hard)...
Mobile Video: Apps vs. Internet
Obviously mobile video is huge. I’m digging around to see what I can learn about “mobile video” — is it going to be bigger in apps or in browsers? And is this even an important distinction? And what should I consider Youtube: app or Internet?

No one’s born a ceo. It’s about learning a lot of unnatural behaviors, but it is learnable. More like boxing (or golf) than sprinting.
Good Stuff from Evan Williams
“I think when you’re just starting out you have little choice but to succeed through persistence and luck. I like to think of the world as a sort of a casino, except the house doesn’t have the advantage. If you’re smart, you have an advantage,” Williams said. “It behooves you to place a lot of bets … as you get better you can make bigger bets.” “I think you should build things for yourself,” he...

Been reading this book, and I’m loving the word, “Panamanians.” An excerpt: In the final analysis, the [American] global empire depends to a large extent on the fact that the dollar acts as the standard world currency, and that the United States Mint has the right to print those dollars. Thus, we make loans to countries like Ecuador [and Panama, Venezuela, Columbia, Peru,...
