What Can The Sith and Anakin Skywalker Teach You About Entrepreneurship?: If anyone you work with, be they a customer, cofounder, employee, vendor, etc, and they're not as passionate about your startup as you are or more, get rid of them. They'll only bleed you of limited resources. Be passionate about your work. #ThereIsNoTry

That kills more start ups than anything....lack of passion.

Another "real estate bubble" sign 
It requires a little more research than just watching HGTV.

El Paso looks a bit disturbing to me.
Sharp edges and high level of contrast.

Civil forfeiture is despicable. I have read that even if you get your stuff back, they still charge some people a fee - one guy was charged $4K to get his stuff back. Just amazing. No due process whatsoever.

I learned this lesson fairly recently. If an entrepreneur or startup says that they want to change the world, run.

Recently, I've come to realize that you can have the best idea ... EVER. But if you have the wrong people working it, then the startup will be doomed.

Hence, I can appreciate how this "fact" of human nature may have led to Silicon Valley's reputation for "pattern recognition". When choosing what demographics and personality types are worthy of investing in, you need to have assurances that your start up won't be destroyed, you won't lose money, and/or be embarrassed.

Funny
Boys should be treated more like girls to stop them falling behind at school, a study into the gender gap in education has shown.

I cannot find an open link (it's behind a paywall) but Stuttaford at NR had an article recently called Robot Envy which does not bode well for the future for anyone. I am certainly not a luddite but I wonder how society will cope with this.

This link is not about that but it might as well be.

It's a great time to be a kid!
Make computers, take control. With simple steps, build and code cameras, speakers, pixels, and sensors. Playful, physical, powerful.
