I thought his advice on not necessarily following your passion to be refreshingly insightful.

"I wish we as a society gave better career advice to young adults. I think that "follow your passion" is not good career advice. It's actually one of the most terrible pieces of career advice we give people.

But often, you first become good at something, and then you become passionate about it. And I think most people can become good at almost anything.

So when I think about what to do with my own life, what I want to work on, I look at two criteria. The first is whether it's an opportunity to learn. Does the work on this project allow me to learn new and interesting and useful things? The second is the potential impact. The world has an infinite supply of interesting problems. The world also has an infinite supply of important problems. I would love for people to focus on the latter."

Thinking vs memorizing.The other day I asked my 3rd grader to add two numbers, and he asked Siri for the answer.

It was a proud moment...

The difference a degree can make is still a significant one.
A new study looks at whether or not a college degree can chip away at income disparities.

Snapseed is owned by Google and you'll find the filters and features in the Photos app. And I too love Snapseed. And this photo.

First time at Small Plates. Been wanting to try it for a long time. Went after a trip to the opera. Overall: just okay. First, the excellent - the hand-cut fries. Very good, fresh, and a nice aioli to dip into. The pretty good - mac and cheese. I've seen lots of reviews that it's a must-have and I'd say it's a 'good' choice. Not the best I've had. The crusty topping was dry and not hot when we got it. The okay - Thai Spiced Salmon - a specialty for the day. Came with bacon/onion slaw. Salmon slightly overcooked, but was flavorful. The slaw was a little mushy, little color, but again somewhat flavorful. The awful - the Bloody Mary, which I saw was reviewed positively by another reviewer. The worst I've ever had. Tasted like the bartender dumped Italian seasoning (especially oregano) into tomato juice with tabasco. Terrible. So, all in all, there are better places to spend your money. It was between a 2 and 3 for me, but I gave it a 3 as we 'rounded up' :-)

Food is phenomenal. Excellent Murgh and Biriyani. Service knocks it down a star. Inconsistent.
