  • Commencement speeches

    I touched the subject in my earlier post, Regrets of the dying, but since we’re in the season for commencement speeches, I thought I’d link to a couple more. Some of them are actually quite known online, and you might have heard a few already. Like Steve Jobs’ 2005 speech at Stanford. It is one of my […]

  • Regrets of the dying

    Floating around on the internet one night, I found a list of the biggest regrets of the dying, made by a palliative care nurse called Bronnie Ware. Searching for and following the connections of this interesting subject, I also stumbled upon some similar artwork, made by Alice Lee. In her Tumblr-blog, she posted some desktop wallpapers, inspired by Paul Grahams’ inversions of the 5 regrets, yielding a list of 5 […]

  • TED – Ideas Worth Spreading

    I know I’ve mentioned this site before, but I think it’s so good, it is worth mentioning again. One of my favorite websites of all time, used for inspiration, education and some times just entertainment: TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people […]

  • Hunter S. Thompson’s Fearless Cover Letter!

    Robert Greene’s 50th Law, which says, in essence, to fear nothing is a concept most struggle with. Not Hunter S. Thompson – at least in the context of applying for a job with the Vancouver Sun.  Seeking a new job, Thompson decided to pen the following letter to the new Sun editorial director as his application. Worth reading and far better […]

    I’ve always wanted to own a cainema and seeing these pictures, wish I could buy and restore one these abandoned picture houses. Matt over at Buzzfeed, has gathered a large collection of pictures of deserted theaters from across the USA. To check out all of them, just head over to their site.

  • Testing WordPress for iPad

    Almost everywhere I go, I take either my iPhone or iPad with me. With WiFi, 3G and now 4G, there is pretty much Internet accesses all over the world as well. So I felt it was time to test the WordPress app for iOS devices. I’ve been monitoring my site stats for some days now, […]
