Social Media Is The New Smoking, And You Are Addicted
To-test list 💯💯💯💯
Following the 10,000-experiment rule means starting your day with not just a to-do list but a “to-test” list like Leonardo Da Vinci.
This is a deeply dark time, in which the structures we have built to sustain ourselves are being used against us — all of us — in systematic and automated ways.

Ultimately, the company plans to use this virtuous cycle to optimize every stage of what they call the “content lifecycle”: Creation, Curation, Recommendation and Interaction.
This is a decent analysis of Tesla production line. Let's have more of this!
"“Something happens when there’s two or three of you on a swing,” says Christiansen. “Once you’ve found your balance, you can create a much more powerful movement and a higher level of energy. The whole process [of the piece] is focusing on the power of collaboration.”"

Best 24 pieces of advice ever given
Most of us are slaves to our chronological age.
“The question we were asking was would blood sugar level follow real or perceived time,” says Langer. “And the answer is perceived time.” This was a striking illustration of psycholog
Another awesome read from The Atlantic! 😴
Stay real, human.
We know that you feel like using words like ONLY, NEVER, PERMANENT and NOTICE, but we'd rather hear from someone we like instead.
Hey Seth, I rarely disagree with you, but this is a stretch and an oversimplification of what's popular!
It's pretty easy to bail out of a course (especially a free online course that no one even knows you signed up for). Easy to quit your job, fire a client or give up on a relationship.
In the moment, walking out is precisely the best short-term strategy. Sometimes this place is too hard, too unpleasant, too much...
The thing is, though, that the long-term strategy might be the opposite. The best long-term approach might be to learn something, to tough it out, to engage with the challenge. Because once you get through this, you'll be different. Better.
We always have a choice, but often, it's a good idea to act as if we don't.
We got serious about building diversity in our pipeline, starting with our much-copied internship program (our #1 pipeline to full-time employment).
Food for thought. If this really is the future of elections, and I don't see why not, then we need new tools too.
Read this and waste a bit time
Good and balanced take on AI and intelligence
This is why I don't have a phone number! And my notifications are limited...
Organic is dead.
Fred Wilson gives himself an ok for hitting 50% of his predictions. I would say he is way beyond ok.
This is super interesting. How to spot, foster and maximize talent in sports. I am sure there are learnings to other industries. Also: when is your end game?
Pretty much perfect foreword.
Let's just all agree to stop zero sum thinking. It is a theoretical construct and shouldn't direct decisions.

Been living without the news for almost a year. Loving it every day. Tech news is another story though....
Hey author, Facebook and Google didn't get it wrong. Period.
But yes, unbundling of search is something Google should be aware of. And is.
How about you bet against them, and I bet for them?
Absolutely excellent reminder to my daily live. Busy as a fact or as status?
Important read. And I think we need answers beyond young generations growing up in stable societies. That conclusion is as true as saying that Democracy failed to evolve and integrate younger generations due to self interest by older generations.
Bill Gates at his finest
It’s important to remember what made the moonshot the moonshot—that is, what transforms political rhetoric into game-changing breakthroughs. A moonshot challenge requires a clear, measurable objective that captures the imagination of the nation and fundamentally changes how we view what’s possible.
Obama is probably the politician I have most respect for. Such an impressive piece of writing. Only thing I can think of missing was a few sentences on how/why we need new measurements for productivity.
I have been thinking about this for a long time. Not sure I would go as gas saying that bad news are caused by news, but I surely don't think the news is only _reporting_ the news...
YouTube is da shit
In my eagerness to celebrate this, I remind myself of The sugar-industry influence on sugar-research & The car-industry's influence on public transportation development.
It rises an interesting question. However, I would like to take a deeper look at the data before jumping to conclusions. For example, I find it hard to believe that there are less startups today. If that is so, we need a discussion on what constitutes a startup.
Startups, meanwhile, have found it harder to get off the ground. Robert Litan, of the Council on Foreign Relations, and Ian Hathaway, of the Brookings Institution, note that the number of startups is lower than at any time since the late 1970s, and that more companies die than are born, pushing up their average age.
I love everything about this.
Exciting to follow. It seems ridiculous that we still live and build for the scale logic of the factory.
We have to build off-grid neighbourhoods around the world as quickly as we can, and as many as we can.”
Excellent portrait about one of the most inspiring Danes around.
Do you know Philip K. Dick's definition of science fiction?" he asks. "He says science fiction is not a space opera, although it often happens in space, and it's not a story from the future, although it often happens in the future. He says science fiction is a story where the plot is triggered by some form of innovation. Often it's technological innovation, but it can be political, social, whatever. And the story is a narrative exploration of the potential of that innovation, of that idea. And not only the writer but the reader can actually think along and imagine how would our world be different if this one thing is different.
Your week decoded. This is the hour for hour of why you are so damn busy and don't have time to develop new skills, say keep up with your fitness.
Makes you wonder what future technologies are right besides you without you even noticing...
Our transportation system will look radical diffident in 20 years. The cars will drive themselves. You don't need to own them. And the same might be the case for planes! Hopefully they will all be electrical powered.
