renrutnnej asked: How come you don't have a newsletter?
Let’s make our society one where we don’t need so many “mistakes are okay” and “who cares if you’re not perfect” and “you’re not fat” articles and posts on blogs.
If I were half the person I advise others to be, well, I’d be half the person I want to be.

More from Mr. Hock: “Yet, there is nothing we fear more. We are our ideas, concepts, and perceptions. Giving up any part of our internal model of reality is worse than losing a finger or an eye. It seems as though part of us no longer exists. Fortunately, unlike most organs of the physical body, internal concepts of reality can be regenerated. Although it is a frightening, painful process it...
Chaordic West Wing
Been reading and re-reading Dee Hock’s One From Many which largely discusses his experiences bringing VISA into being and its “chaordic” organizational theories. More than anything, this is a note to myself to look more at the government as a chaordic organization. (I’m re-watching West Wing right now. Fantastic television.)
If there’s one thing I’ve noticed about my tweets since joining &yet, it’s that I don’t tweet near as much business/management/being-good-to-others type stuff that I did before. If there is a reason for it, I wonder if it’s that my appetite for the flavor of those things that I have is satisfied by the people I work with every day. Love this place.

renrutnnej: Holy crap, what happened last week? I’m not even sure if I’m equipped to write about this yet. Not to sound overly dramatic, but I don’t know that I’m fully recovered enough to recall the specific details that I am dying to share. And I want to do the events of the past week justice. Where to…

ryanleecarson: I think there’s something messed up about the startup culture in the USA. The belief is that you have to work 6-7 days a week and spend all your mental cycles on your company. Nothing but pledging your soul to your startup yields success, right? Not in my experience. We work a 4-day week at …

blog.izs.me: How I Would Do It →
izs: One of the most common shorthands for evaluating the choices of others is to internally ask ourselves if we would make those same choices in the same situation. If the choice is “Not how I would do it”, then it is deemed “Bad”, and reflects poorly on the chooser. Like most sources of error, this…

adambrault: Real tears over a real friend last night. And this morning. We’ve had to say goodbye to someone on our team five times in the past year. Five. At this point in 2011, we’d never had anyone leave our team. But I recently started using TwitShift to follow my own tweets from a year ago, so I’m…
Pro Tip for OCD iPhone Users
If you’re like me, and can’t bring yourself to delete unused apps from your phone, try this mind hack: Stop using folders. Arrange apps according to frequency of use by “page.” Every so often (choose your own obsessive interval), scroll through the pages and force yourself to delete an app or two instead of reorganizing them back into folders. *only works if you want...

bijan: When I see startups that only offer FB Connect as the singular sign in option, I always get squeamish. I tell founders they should support FB Connect but they also support Twitter sign-in as well as giving users an option to sign in the good old fashioned way : user id & password. Sometimes…
then we made shirts
loudlionblog: Remember when we had this awesome idea to make shirts with our designs on them? Shirts that are super comfortable. Shirts we’d sell to friends everywhere?! Then we were like “Oh so how do we actually make them?” Enter our new friend Scott Ellis of Blue Button. Non-profit owner. Man on a mission for teens. Screen printer extraordinaire. New mentor and friend. When I say that Scott...
