Seems like this is someone smart to ask for this sort of advice.
It's possible to get a higher salary without taking anyone captive.

Millennials are the slowest of any US generation to have babies (http://goo.gl/pv8oki). This is good news -- the Earth is already overpopulated and we barely care for the people we have here now. Anything that lowers our carbon footprint (less babies helps significantly!) is good news for future of life on the planet.

Yup couples are starting to have second thoughts about raising children in this world.  It's not going to end well at this rate.

Increasingly, the US is finally becoming non-religious & joining the rest of the world.

In US there are now 4 groups where <50% say they are religious: 18-24, 25-34, Students, People w/ Masters & Doctor degrees. Probably about right: education and religion inversely correlate (more education, less likely to believe in supernatural beings). And young people thanks to the internet are more critical thinkers / questioning their world (http://goo.gl/Qaxbf2). Good stuff. 

Honestly have no problem with people who believe and keep it personal but the religious people who push their agendas on the world and stop, say,marriage equality or equal rights for women are just awful humans. With tomorrow's leaders and policy makers not being religious all this nonsensical BS will hopefully be totally behind us :)

Just replace Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, etc. with IRC, boards/forums, Prodigy & AOL and this is about accurate for how us geeks grew up in the 90s / early 2000s. More things change, the more they stay the same. This isn't new behavior. 
Smartphones are fueling a shift in the communication landscape for teens. Nearly three-quarters of teens now use smartphones and 92% of teens report going online daily — including 24% who say they go online "almost constantly."

Don't forget ICQ. I still remember that little uh-oh sound 😄

Took this photo on the walk home from dinner tonight. San Francisco is just a magical city. Every night here the sky is unique and beautiful, a different perspective and shade of blue.

Finally testing streaming services for distribution of my music.

Got around to testing a music distributor to share my art. The problem again is they have no mechanism for creative commons (non profit) artists. There is no "free" option (I have to pay to upload my art and I also can't offer it for cost of $0 - they don't consider non-profit artists). Also my most recent album Untold Story (https://adamsinger.bandcamp.com/album/untold-story) was rejected because it has some snippets of vocals on several of the tracks from other artists (despite the services looking the other way on big name artists like Girl Talk). A bit hypocritical but that's the music industry. 

Anyway if you want to stream my 2012 artist album "What If" you now can:

Google Play:
https://play.google.com/store/music/album/Adam_Singer_What_If?id=Buqt55dtmx73hryvl32vttnn4ye&hl=en

Spotify:
https://play.spotify.com/album/5PrSVnTGASCXv4fVoMXwEE?play=true&utm_source=open.spotify.com&utm_medium=open

iTunes:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/what-if/id985366138

And it should be on others like Pandora now too.

Of course you can download it free on my music site here:
http://www.agsinger.com/new-artist-album-what-if/

Note since I have released this album under Creative Commons any $ made from streaming I'll donate to Cancer Research and Muscular Dystophy Assoc. This way I am being true to the notion of a not for profit artist.

I also had to use different album art since the original art was creative commons and I can't re-use that image in a platform where $ is made (non-commercial license).

GoPro should hire this guy to do commercials. Super creative -- If he can make a day at the office interesting that's easier than making skydiving look cool :)

Ditch owning a car and be happier, healthier, spend less $, be less stressed, see more of your world, be more social, get more fresh air, make new friends, and decrease your carbon footprint. Don’t be afraid. Join us! ‪#CarFree 
No matter if you're rich, poor, or somewhere in between, you spend a lot on transportation. The WSJ has some great data on how people across income levels spend

I'm no fan of car ownership -- I loved living in Manhattan car-free.  That said, if you're living in a place like Silicon Valley, it's useful to have a way to get around since public transportation is, well, lacking.  There's ways to do it that help with the issues you listed:

1) Don't buy into brand.  Just get a car that works for your needs.  There's no need to overspend if you're not image obsessed. 

2) Arrange your schedule to avoid traffic.  I drive into the office at 5:45am every morning and then exercise, and then I drive home in the early afternoon and keep working from home. 

3) Take your car to cool places that are difficult to access without a car (like all the amazing hikes in the bay area)!  Definitely helps with the healthier/fresh air/happier points.

4) Find stuff to do while in the car that are enjoyable.  There's a lot of great podcasts and books on tape (Going Clear!) that keep you engaged. 

5) Carbon footprint: you got me there. :)

I laughed way too hard at this (probably because I live on the top floor of a building now -- but been below these people in the past).

If you haven't watched the PBS special on cancer yet you should put aside some time. Incredibly powerful.
Watch Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies videos on demand. Stream full episodes online. Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Siddhartha Mukherjee, tells the complete story of cancer, from its first description in an ancient Egyptian scroll to the gleaming laboratories of modern research institutions. At six hours, the film interweaves a sweeping historical narrative; with intimate stories about co...
