If you want to do 1000 pushups (in a single day :) ) here's a trick that will get you to the goal.

Start at 6 am and end at 10 pm. This window gives you 960 minutes total and 64 blocks of 15 minutes. So, you have 64 pushup sessions within which to do your 1000 pushups. That comes out to 15.625 pushups every 15 minutes from 6 am to 10 pm. Set a timer and go—piece o cake! (Chocolate cake, I'm hoping, please and thank you.)

Bonus
If you round up to 16 per quarter hour, you'll get 24 extra pushups (or 1024) which, as we know, is the right and proper thing to do if you're into computers and binary number geekery. You could then say you did 10000000000 pushups. ;)

Duvet cover technology is ripe for disruption. Having just now attempted to secure this comforter inside a cover and discovering that sewing it in place is the only preferred method, all I can say is: life is too short to be horsing around with duvet/comforter/batt covers all Sunday afternoon. Sheesh, how can this still be so bad!? (And the cover is from Ikea, no less! You'd think… but nope.)

A neat animation - 71 seconds…
No good deed goes unpunished in this goofy short produced by HouseSpecial, a Portland-based animation studio. It's on the shorter side—the whole story lasts just longer than a minute—yet it's animated with remarkable specificity and humor. (The rock monster's eyebrows, for example, are just delightful.) The crew includes Kirk Kelley (creative director), Kameron Gates (writer/director), and Allan Turner (writer). To watch the rest of HouseSpecial'...

If you love language and linguistics and Shakespeare and sound and words and any, or all of the above, this is a marvelous and most excellent, edifying and fascinating video to behold. I recommend beholding it with all speed! Behold, I tell you! (With extra beholding power, even.)
In this short documentary, linguist David Crystal and his son, actor Ben Crystal, look at the differences between English pronunciation now and how it was spoken 400 years ago. They answer the most basic question you probably have right now — How do you...

The amazing lasery Star Wars blastery sounds of ice cracking (discovered via +Nerdist ). Just play this in the background while you're working. It's strangely calming and neato all at once.

Introduction
I like to write. I'm also a tech guy who didn't realize he was a tech guy until one day, while talking to someone about tech matters, I realized I was generating that dreaded glazed look.

Of course, at that point I also became passionate about explaining tech and technological concepts in clear language for everyone.

Funny how I had always planned to be an artist/musician/writer. Plans are still unfolding. ;)

I favor a balanced use of technology. Technology is a tool that magnifies the human mind. Let us clear and balance our minds before we leverage them. Then let's magnify that which produces the greatest good for all.

Isn't it curious how anything for its own sake tends to create an imbalance?
