I found this video series interesting and worthwhile, which is impressive, given as it is nearly 9 hours long. I recommend making some time to check it out if you care at all about truth, freedom, and morality. I also recommend hitting YouTube's settings cog at the bottom of the video and setting the playback speed to 2x, to make the presentation a more palatable ~4.5 hours. It also comes conveniently broken into three parts, so you can watch each one as you have time.

This was a worthwhile read. It definitely rang true for me, in seeing how my parents interact.

I haven't been following the Freddie Gray story very closely, as it looks too heavily weighted with politics and misinformation to make heads or tails of it without investing more time than I have to dedicate to it. That being said, +Stefan Molyneux tends to be a reliable source for the facts, presented without much care towards political correctness.

This video is a beautiful, emotional homage to Gray and to his community as a whole, and it does him the justice of not reducing him to a single event at the end of his life.

Watching this was worth the time. Recommended. :)
 
Be who YOU are... do what YOU believe in... and you'll attract the same kind of people / audience / customer.
And your business and life will thrive rather than be brought down by negativity or doubt. 

A WONDERFUL video from +Simon Sinek!

Google Hangouts for Android Team: How can you possibly brand Hangouts as an SMS application with a straight face, and yet make it completely impossible (or so convoluted as to be effectively so) to add a contact with the number that just texted me? What on earth are you thinking?? I can't even copy their number! Did nobody think this is an important use case? This is a stop everything and get this done kind of feature for any app that fancies itself an SMS client.

For now my workaround is to call their phone from the Hangouts app and immediately hang up before it rings on their end, then go to the dialer and hit the ingeniously placed "Add to Contacts" button attached to that call in my history. That's not a solution.

Fix this. Seriously.

This article explores one of the plethora applications for blockchain technology that people who don't get excited about decentralized consensus forming mechanisms may find more interesting. And while Bitcoin specifically is unfit for this kind of application (the protocol wasn't built for it, and the developers don't seem to be working toward it), this is exactly the kind of application that we are trying to build a platform for at BitShares. Blockchain-based identity, self-enforcing contracts, and figuring out how to mirror real-world interactions on the blockchain are what I do every day.

Does this kind of application interest you? Do you have any questions or concerns about this technology? Sound off in the comments; I'd love to hash it out with you! :)

This article is interesting, but acceptance of certain aspects would be limited.  Personally, I'm likely to do a significant amount of home maintenance myself, and I'm not inclined to inform my house of each maintenance action so it can share the news with the world.

As far as tracking ownership though, it's a definite improvement, and the additional features should serve those who want them even without universal acceptance.

Whether you are on stage or just Down on the Corner, the cow bell sound evokes a positive, upbeat mood, which is the perfect accent or main beat for Latin-American style music, Funk, or just good old American Rock and Roll!

I came with a couple friends and had a burger. The food was great, the waitress was good and I liked the ambiance. I particularly appreciated that the table had grinders for the salt and pepper instead of shakers. Fresh ground pepper is just so much better, hahaha.
