This is a comprehensive list and they did a great job of giving full disclosure on how they gathered and rated each one. Then they included the names of the next 51-100 to make sure I would get all ecstatic and share. Mission accomplished.

Yes, yes, and also include them in prisons, courthouses, asylums, convalescent homes, classrooms, public transit stations... ok, just put them everywhere.
 
This startup wants to bring sunlight indoors & make you healthier

If your home won’t fit more windows or a skylight, perhaps this is the next best thing. A startup called Sunn has developed a programmable LED light fixture that modulates light to mimic the sun’s rays throughout the day and time of year, potentially making its users feel healthier.

A Game Designer Explains the Counterintuitive Secret to Fun

At WIRED by Design, Bogost outlined his conception of fun. It’s not about effortless enjoyment, he argues, but instead about embracing the effort demanded in a given situation. If you’re mowing your lawn, you don’t make it fun by strapping an iPad to your lawnmower. Instead, you make it fun by taking the job seriously—you see how few rows you can take to cover the whole yard, how tightly you can make the turns.

“Fun is giving respect to something that doesn’t deserve it,” Bogost says. “Becoming infatuated with something for which infatuation seems impossible.” If you’re unconvinced, just think about golf. It’s a ridiculous premise and the source of untold frustration. And yet, after all these centuries, we’re still going back to the links.

This nugget spoke to me this morning:

The paradox seems to be, as Socrates demonstrated long ago, that the truly free individual is free only to the extent of his own self-mastery. While those who will not govern themselves are condemned to find masters to govern over them.
-from The War of Art by Steven Pressfield

Introduction
In the world of work, these 10 beliefs are rampant and untrue:

1. bosses are better than subordinates
2. men are smarter than women
3. CEO = someone you want to know
4. all senior professionals are good interviewers
5. foreign engineers take jobs away from Americans
6. employees who quit are traitors
7. managers and executives inherently know how to build great teams
8. resumes and job descriptions are accurate and realistic
9. interviewing potential employees is easy
10. laughing a lot means you're not working

10 truths to warm up to:

1. every employee has the potential to perform their jobs better
2. leaders are people learning as they go, too
3. interviewing is stressful for everyone involved
4. resumes are like artwork and subject to interpretation
5. building great teams is really hard
6. appreciating & valuing others' work is free grease for all human systems
7. every employee is ultimately working for themselves
8. leadership is a responsibility that can be endlessly shared 
9. communication skills are the biggest contributing factor in professional success
10. laughing a lot at work is wonderful
