For my logistics geek friends out there - two incredible maps that show the evolution of global shipping: http://bit.ly/1j0k4LU
An assistant professor of history at Northeastern University, Ben Schmidt, has put together a few rather cool-looking maps that display the world's modern shipping routes. What's interesting is that, viewed together, the routes create an inverted map of the world—a reminder of the broad reach of global trade. The map above displays shipping routes from 1980 to 1997,...

"Flying the Sidecar" - This is what I found during my research today. First, how awesome is it to be able to say that? Second - I now have another goal to accomplish! Anyone game?

Good morning, afternoon and evening (depending on where in the world you are right now!)

I'm headed off for my annual adventure. Actually, I'm driving a Ural motorcycle with sidecar through the ice roads of Siberia and up to the Arctic Circle. Really. It looks something like this: The Ice Run | A Brief Guide

What would compel me to do something like this? Well first, to see if it can be done - but more importantly, to better understand what I'm capable of.

Second, to use this adventure to help raise funds and awareness for the charity Cool Earth, who have helped save over 350,000+ acres of rainforest. We live on this amazing planet - and I'd like to help keep it that way :-)

When I return, I'll share more about how we can help them - but in the mean time, if you're interested in their mission, you can learn more on their website (http://bit.ly/coolearth). I encourage you to watch and share their compelling story. 

In the meantime, if you'd like to keep up with the journey (I'll post whenever I have Internet access), the best places are:

Until I return, have fun!

Will definitely be done - some of the choice photos are up in this interview (http://bit.ly/1pcwRgH). The other 90% of the photos and video still need to be viewed and sorted. I'm going to start in May.

Okay - for today's #IceRun preparation share: if you're curious how serious cold weather can be when you're in the wilderness, read "To Build a Fire" by Jack London (short story). It's a fictional portrayal, but conveys truth.

Outbox, one of my 2013 investments is closing down. It saddens me not only because they had an amazing service and team, but because I really, really wanted them to succeed and expand, so that I could become a customer (they served Austin and SF).

There's a lot to learn from both success and failure. When you can't go on, it is important to take care of those who helped you (evident by their handling of the winding-down process), to share your lessons learned, and to be able to dust yourself off and try again. I can't wait to see what they try next. 

If you have a couple minutes, I encourage you to read their lessons learned and note of gratitude.
