Its funny how things come full circle...

I'm currently detoxing from radio/tv news coverage for the next 60 days ( I'll jump back in the week of the national election)..

So In the meantime I have a need to fill my " 50 minute each way commute " to work in the morning. And what do ya know... I rediscovered podcasts. I used to listen to a bunch back in the day but fell off. I got into one specifically, and discovered that google music carries a ton of amazing podcasts..

Now listening to these while driving isn't for everybody. Streaming continuously over a network can be expensive..unless you are TMobile customer and can stream stuff like this for free.

It also works best if your car is bluetooth enabled...

What podcasts are you listening to?

If you consider all the times a time released medication would come in handy its not a stretch to see where this could be huge once perfected in humans
The nanobots could one day dispense drugs with more precision in people

"Societies are like individuals
We grow when we challenge ourselves
When we don't we become stagnant"

When you think about all the things we are consumed with at the present moment
(politics, wars, and immigration) .. how small does all that become when compared to standing on another planet and colonizing it?

Wouldn't it be cool if we were consumed with doing great things again?

I was nominated by +Sara Vega 
The rules are:
1. Post the cover of a great hip hop album.
2. No need to go into why it's great, just accept that it is.
3. Tag the person who nominated you like I have above.
4. Nominate 8 friends.
5. Keep it going.

The First 5 People To Hire For Your Tech Startup

This is awesome for the non developer CEOs.. But it's quite a bit harder for us business starters who have made their living designing and developing UI interfaces.

Mustering the confidence to launch a startup is hard work. Finding the right people to join that startup is even harder, but it’s well worth your time and effort.

Mad Props To +Airbnb CEO For His Handling Of This

Here's a copy of the letter I received in my email that he sent out to the Airbnb community

..........................

Dear Airbnb community,
At the heart of our mission is the idea that people are fundamentally good and every community is a place where you can belong. We don’t say this because it sounds nice. It’s the goal that everyone at Airbnb works towards every day – because we’ve all seen how when we live together, we better understand each other.

Discrimination is the opposite of belonging, and its existence on our platform jeopardizes this core mission. Bias and discrimination have no place on Airbnb, and we have zero tolerance for them. Unfortunately, we have been slow to address these problems, and for this I am sorry. I take responsibility for any pain or frustration this has caused members of our community. We will not only make this right; we will work to set an example that other companies can follow.

In June, we asked Laura Murphy, the former head of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Washington D.C. Legislative Office, to review every aspect of the Airbnb platform, and to make sure that we’re doing everything we can to fight bias and discrimination. Thanks to Laura’s leadership, today we’re releasing a report that outlines the results of that process. You can read the full report here, but I’d like to highlight four changes that will impact the way our platform works:

Airbnb Community Commitment
Beginning November 1, everyone who uses Airbnb must agree to a stronger, more detailed nondiscrimination policy. We aren’t just asking you to check a box associated with a long legal document. We’re asking everyone to agree to something we’re calling the Airbnb Community Commitment, which says:
We believe that no matter who you are, where you are from, or where you travel, you should be able to belong in the Airbnb community. By joining this community, you commit to treat all fellow members of this community, regardless of race, religion, national origin, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation or age, with respect, and without judgment or bias.

Open Doors
We’ll be implementing a new policy called Open Doors. Starting October 1st, if a Guest anywhere in the world feels like they have been discriminated against in violation of our policy – in trying to book a listing, having a booking canceled, or in any other interaction with a host – we will find that Guest a similar place to stay if one is available on Airbnb, or if not, we will find them an alternative accommodation elsewhere. This program will also apply retroactively to any Guest who reported discrimination prior to today. All of these Guests will be offered booking assistance for their next trip.

Instant Book
We’ll increase the availability of Instant Book, which allows our hosts to offer their homes to be booked immediately without their prior approval of a specific guest. Instant Book makes booking easier for everyone, and our goal is to have 1 million listings bookable via Instant Book by January 1st, 2017.

Anti-bias training
We are working with experts on bias, including Dr. Robert Livingston of the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and Dr. Peter Glick of Lawrence University, to make anti-bias training available to our community, and will be publicly acknowledging those who complete it.
These steps are just the beginning, not the end, of our efforts to combat bias and discrimination.

While we as a company have been slow on this issue, I am now asking you the community to help us lead the way forward. Every time you make someone else feel like they belong, that person feels accepted and safe to be themselves. While this may sound like a small act of kindness, we are a community of millions of people strong. Imagine what we can do together.

Brian Chesky
CEO, Co-founder

A zombie procedural? Is there any wonder why the old network TV channels seem to always mess up the most promising shows?

Can you imagine Rick and Daryl solving a “zombie crime of the week” on The Walking Dead? According to series executive producer Gale Anne Hurd,...

Besides the fact that we are actively in the transition to a services based economy, and all of us becoming independent service providers..

The key takeaway - and what will be a key differentiator.. is how productive you can be without the 8 hour structure telling you when to do things (start, lunch, break, etc)
