What Do You Do When The Thing You Want Doesn’t Exist?

I saw this go by a few days ago and I had to share it: credit and thanks to Michael Ellsberg for posting it originally. 

A few updates to the December Giveaway post: all of the slots for Saturday are filled up (they filled up within a couple of hours!) but there are a couple spots left for the rest of December for anyone looking for a booster shot to take you into the New Year. Sign up for a brainstorming session (1 hour) here. And thanks to Ian for the suggestions on what to call the "sale" (I dislike the term Cyber Monday and I also dislike the word "sale."

He was one of my first twitter-to-real-life friends, andContinue ReadingContinue Reading

Here’s a list of what I’ve been learning from this past week–as well as the books I’ve recently read or am nearly done with from the last month or two.Continue ReadingContinue Reading

Building Something Bigger (And a Peek Behind The Curtain): My Monthly Review
