I didn’t mention it but at one point while walking through boat I wondered if a friend who will be running the company had consider the possibility of internal diagnostics and hacking. He’s not a tech person and I didn’t bring it up because I didn’t want to dampen the mood. But when it comes to our country, companies and crews, including food, the way feed our country could become a national security issue. Last week friends christened their new factory […]

You Can Be Busy or Remarkable — But Not Both April 3rd, 2013 by Cal Newport The Remarkably Relaxed Terence Tao is one of the world’s best mathematicians. He won a Fields Medal when he was 31. He is, we can agree, remarkable. He is not, however, busy. I should be careful about definitions. By “busy,” I mean a schedule packed withnon-optional professional responsibilities. My evidence that Tao is not overwhelmed by such obligations is the time he spends on […]
“The principle is mob and move” – Joel Salatin Everything I’ve designed I’ve researched and created in my free time. I’ve never gotten paid to design. It’s always been a curiosity and personal challenge. Can you deliver what you’re thinking? The idea comes and I grab it by the tail before it leaves; I start drawing pulling it back until I have it sitting down in front of me turning and sculpting it like clay adding words until it makes sense and it’s […]
I think a lot about linearity and geology. I was thinking about it today in regards to my life, website and designs. Sometimes I wish didn’t take me this long to get where I am. Even previous work. I wish it was cleaner, neater. Even my Angel List account. It could it be better. More minimal and to the point. But then stopped myself. Because as much as I want good taste I realized that what makes life and creative work […]
I really believe in skating to where the puck is going to be, but at some point you have to stay in the same stadium. You can’t just wait forever for the puck to get there. – Flipboard CEO Mike McCue on Recode Decode www.recode.net
I really admired people who take responsibility for their life. The relationship they have with themselves and others. Everything they have and have experienced they’ve brought into their life, and how equally everything they don’t want and need to let go they have the agency to change.
(CNN)There’s a reason they call the snow leopard the “ghost of the mountains.” The chances of seeing one are almost nonexistent, even for those who spend their lives looking for them. It’s part of what makes the snow leopard unique, along with a distinct set of features supremely adapted for life in the frigid high mountains of Asia. A long, thick tail for balancing and wrapping around the body and face for warmth. Large paws like snowshoes. An enlarged nasal […]
