This is a fascinating read. 
Getting too little sleep can have serious health consequences, including depression, weight gain, and heart disease. It is torture. I know.

Bahaha great share from +Rob Gordon

I see three issues:

1. What if you are not that flexible?
2. This is not a good idea if you are wearing a skirt.
3. How does it actually take the picture? How do you press the button?

I'm totally over analyzing this and not just taking it for what it is. But still. Someone MADE these.

This is quite fascinating.

You don't want to have a bunch of ads pop up when you hear about a terrible plane crash and go to a news site to learn more, especially if there's an ad that is for airline tickets. This gives you a glimpse into the HTML behind major news sites when tragedies happen or major news -- how they content manage during crisis. 

Really worth a read. 
When big news stories evolve into tragedies and people are flocking to read the latest online, website design becomes the backdrop for grave information. And as Electronic Frontier Foundation activist Parker Higgins points out, you can tell a lot about how different sites react to tragic stories by checking out...

AW SNAP! I'm pretty excited about this.

The Telecom industry changed VASTLY, so has the means of how we listen to music, and looks like TV is about to change drastically again.

Ever since Netflix hit it big with their TV series, and TV streaming becoming popular, I'm curious how Apple is going to stir up the market. What about you guys?

I love Dave Pell's Next Draft newsletter -- and thought this article he wrote over at +Medium was pretty darn good.

"It was the inherent beauty of the web. I had access to the same tools and the same publish button as any big time brand. As an indie player, this was incredibly powerful, and in many ways, that leveling of the creative playing field was what got so many of us so excited about this joint in the first place."
This isn’t the Internet we signed up for…

Part Dos!

I call out some of my leaders in this mini-series on culture. I hope it'll help open some of your eyes what it's like one the receiving end as an employee in company cultures that work and DON'T work.

Anyone else hear about this? Not quite sure how I feel about it.

This whole thing about "smart homes" is interesting to me. And I think it'll be pretty interesting in 5-10 years when there's a more sophisticated-streamlined automation system for the home. But I think we'll look back at this button thing in 5 years and laugh at it because it was 'primitive' in the history of home-automation. 

What do you guys think about it?

Eventually it will work like this:

- I get a box of Tide from Amazon, fitted with appropriate sensors
(which add almost no cost to the box).
- I use the Tide until it gets to about 10% full.
- I notice that UPS has left another box of Tide on my front porch.

Ironically, once it reaches this level of sophistication, it won't seem
impressive, it will just seem like "the way things work".

This makes me sick to my stomach...
Cockpit voice recordings provide the clearest clues yet as to what happened during the final 30 minutes of Flight 4U 9525.

In case you guys were wondering -- here's the editorial calendar for LinkedIn Pulse so you can prepare content for the coming months!

I've had some articles go crazy on there, and others get barely noticed. I haven't quite figured out what makes one super popular and get picked up by Pulse and why the other doesn't. 

Do you have any insights?

This article is MONEY. Please also make sure you check out the Glaucoma site they talk about. Hilarious.

Two decades of terrible web design
Yet even us grey-text-loving designers still have something to learn

The title speaks for itself but here are a few of my favourite points:

1. Believing People Care About You And Your Website.
2. A Man From Mars Can't Figure Out What Your Website Is About In Less Than Four Seconds.
5b. Thinking your website is your marketing strategy.
9. Your Website Lacks Heroin Content.
13. Misusing Flash. (Or using it at all IMO)
14. Misunderstanding The Use Of Graphics

Ironically, this site is pretty damn ugly but it does the job and it's certainly got heroin content so it gets a pass by his standards.

I guess all and all it was a win-win because they loved it, and I got paid. But it reminded me of like a bad acne-filled pubescent picture of my from middle school. #nevertobeseenagain
