Some people are born with a natural 3-point shot, I was born with this. http://withoutbullshit.com/blog/10-top-writing-tips-psychology/ #writing   #copywriting  
There are plenty of folks happy to tell you how to write better, just as any doctor will tell you to “eat right and exercise.” But changing your writing (or eating) habits only happens when you understand why you do what you do. I can help you with that. That proposal or email you wrote must now compete for … Continue reading 10 top writing tips and the psychology behind them →

This is so awesome. It's felt like we (humans) have been in an innovation rut for few years.

The internet. The iPhone. The emergence of social media. This is potentially a world-changing idea. And I don't know why, but I trust Musk. I think he's sincere in his quest to help advance our species. To improve on the status quo. I could be wrong, but this (and his other innovations) doesn't feel like a money grab. #elonmusk #innovation #tesla #battery #solar

I have a man-crush on Elon's brain. I wonder what other ideas he's got tumbling around in there? And when will he be bringing this stuff to Canada?

This is not the revolution. That will come later. And it won't be racial. But this is a harbinger. The system IS broken. But as white middle class people we simply don't see it. Or rather, don't feel it, despite our efforts to empathize. When the 1% decide who we elect, and then decide policy, at the expense of the poor, who are mostly black, something's got to give. Throw in some consistent, gratuitous violence by a police force that is supposed to protect and serve, and, well, here you go. No, the revolution will come later and it might not look much different than this on a massive scale unless there's a core message/mantra to rally around. But the bottom line is that when you push an animal (the poor) into a corner and keep poking at it (with inequitable policy), the animal does what it can to survive. It fights back. http://m.dailykos.com/story/2015/04/28/1380944/-The-Dominant-White-Response-to-Baltimore-Shows-Why-Black-Residents-are-Justified-in-their-Anger #BaltimoreRiots
