Making sausage isn't pretty either, but if you want a behind the scenes look as I edit and write components of my book, Create More Better Different let me know. I'm going to open up the raw (and I mean really raw) Google doc for reading and commenting in a few days. I have taken the first week of January off to get this book/monkey off of my back and into the world. If you are truly interested, send an email to jason.theodor@gmail.com with 'sausage' as the subject line. I'll send you a link where you can peek behind the curtain and leave feedback if you wish.

It looks like Google Glass will transform how documentaries are made. This is not the best, most insightful example, but instantly the possibilities begin to open up.
 
Celebrated fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg tried on Glass for the first time a few months ago at a conference that she attended with Sergey Brin. She immediately loved it and they agreed to bring Glass to New York Fashion Week. Diane is a champion for innovation and effortless design, so it’s unsurprising that Glass fit seamlessly into her production. In the week leading up to her Spring 2013 show in New York, and during the show itself, everyone from stylists and models to Diane herself used Glass to capture never-before-seen footage of the creative process. This is the first time any video has been shot entirely through Glass and we’re so excited to be able to share it with you. #DVFthroughGlass

I'm trying to simplify what I focus on every day. Instead of suffering from 'action dilution', where there is too much going on at a time, I'm taking a page from Steve Jobs: make a list of 10 things. Then slash the last 7. Those are your next 3 things.

Ah, Google+. I really like you… It's just… I've got a lot on my mind at the moment. I need to work some things out. And I have some friends that don't run in your circles… Don't cry. It's me, not you… We can still be friends. We can still hang out every once in a while…

But seriously, I love Google+. I just rarely seem to use it. I'm not sure how to integrate it more into my routine. I WANT to, but it isn't happening. But truth be told, the shine seems to be off of Twitter and Facebook for me too. Perhaps the only thing I really love is being infatuated with beautiful new technology services. As soon as they require a serious commitment, I want to move on.

Am I the only one who feels this way?

G+ is a flop. It's too late for the game. I come here less than once a week. I was entertaining the idea to close the account completely. But then I saw your post :) and decided to wait a bit longer :))

I spent the last two weeks writing my first article for Medium about reading A Song of Ice and Fire (aka The Game of Thrones books). Reading fantasy fiction with an entire community of information at your fingertips is an interesting venture. There are wikis, forums, custom Kindle dictionaries, interactive maps, and even recipes related to this popular material. If it stills feels too daunting, perhaps my article can persuade you to give it a try.
and not get traumatized by horror, thwarted by language, lost in geography, muddled by mythology, confused by the cast, …

There's a lot to be learned from the practices of elBulli—the Best Restaurant In The World for more than 4 years running—and it's obsessively creative chef, Ferran Adrià. Any industry can be more creative, they just need a slice of innovation PIE: Process, Ingredients, and the Experience. I explain it all in the post below.

In an act of sheer creative panache, I managed to spill coffee on my back while tripping up the escalator.
