This picture of him isn’t understood," says Cook. "I thought the [Walter] Isaacson book did him a tremendous disservice. It was just a rehash of a bunch of stuff that had already been written, and focused on small parts of his personality. You get the feeling that [Steve’s] a greedy, selfish egomaniac. It didn’t capture the person. The person I read about there is somebody I would never have wanted to work with over all this time."
The untold story of Tim Cook's friendship with Steve Jobsand why Jobs wouldn't let Cook try to save his life.

He had laser beam focus. Aspects of his personality are littered in the literature. Counter to the pigeon-holing of specialism prized by knobs and tools, he had the model of the whole donut and could move heaven and earth, for example, getting the supply-chain built in China with government which wouldn't be possible in the U.S,A. For iPhone.

Liberated from a private share.

ISIS doing what it does best and playing its role as the anathema of civilized, thinking folk around the world.

"China’s biggest problem isn’t pollution, even though it is putting children in hospitals. It isn’t bad demographics either, even though that will cause economic migraines later. And it isn’t corruption, which is being strangled out.
It’s not the hukou, communism, overbuilding, or Ghost Cities. It cannot be intimidated or thrown in jail. Like a toxic snowball rolling downhill, it will only grow bigger and uglier unless drastic action is taken.
China’s biggest problem is debt — and it is a very, very big problem."
China's has a very big, growing problem on its hands.

+Cory Pchajek your question is one many governments are trying to answer. For insight I recommend reading "The Undercover Economist Strikes Back : How to Run-or Ruin-an Economy".

Macroeconomic insights on the Millennials (those born 1980-2000).

e.g., they don't think car ownership is a necessity hence access via Uber etc. is enough.

Maybe in the future, personal car service will just be a monthly fee you pay. Order one on your app when you need one and the nearest one just zips over in a few minutes.

OK, you missed the first weekend (March 7-8) but there is still this weekend (March 14-15).

Fotanian Open Studios

There is a conclave of artists working out of studios converted from former factory buildings in Fotan. Each year, for several weekends many of them open their doors to let you see their work environment and current works.

The usual way to see them is on the weekend take the MTR to Shatin and then take a mini-bus. This year there is a shuttle-bus from Fotan. Outside at several points in the area they hand out a map with the address and apartment number of the artists.

You go up the to the highest occupied floor in the factory building and walk down the stairs visiting the open studios on each floor.

See the link for transport details.

It's delayed because the High-Speed Rail Terminal is delayed in construction. They are using this museum site for holding construction materials and equipment.

I've not read "The Secret" for it sounded too much like marketing hype but maybe it worked for some.

[text version linked below]
I hate The Secret. There, I said it. I know I’m a self-development blogger and I’m supposed to keep everything light and airy and full of poop jokes, but fuck it — I hate it. It’s an awful book. And it needs to be said.

The overall message that bad will happen if you think bad things seems pretty terrible.
