A Few Rules

Whilst at the AIA Conference I was surprised at the number of folks who did not have a coherent approach to the market. In fact I would say that a plan was a rarity. This prompted me to dig out this old ready reckoner of points I think should be somewhere in your plan. Its…

Keep in mind these thoughts for today: – Obstacles cannot stop you. Problems cannot stop you. Most of all other people cannot stop you. Only YOU can stop you. – There are 3 times when people change – When hurt enough, when they desire enough, or when they learn enough that they want to change.…

All 135 Space Shuttle Launches At Once

A Letter From Mark Zuckerberg

Nice little touch up from The New Yorker At Facebook headquarters, we like to have all-night coding parties where we get shitfaced and write algorithms and other computer stuff you wouldn’t understand.
