+Adam Curry, who co-invented podcasting (along with +Dave Winer), is uniquely qualified to talk about +Adam Carolla's pursuit against "patent trolls."

A plea to the tech and podcast "communities" and others hailing +Adam Carolla as some sort of hero: Please stop. He is lying to you. It's kind of sad, really...he may not even know he's lying...which might be the worst part of this.

If you really want to stop this "troll," despite them actually owning the specific patent in dispute (from the onset--rather than purchasing it like actual patent trolls tend to), you're better off supporting the +Electronic Frontier Foundation's mission to invalidate the patent which Personal Audio has rightfully been awarded.

+james altucher provides this inspiring answer to a +Quora user's question of "I am in my late 20s, and feel I have wasted a lot of time. Is it too late?".

In short: “Never, never, never give up.” -Winston Churchill

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”
