Really good read on how to live more practically by +Ben Wills 
That’s the most embarrassing title I’ve ever written. Well...embarrassing for my girlfriend. But it’s also the truth. Here’s why... When You’re Living in a Van Down by the River Eight years ago, in November of 2006, I quit the last job I ever had. When I did, I lived alone in a 2,000...

Can you work your way through university, like your parent? No.

The dramatic rise in the cost of going to university in the US is a crisis no one is paying attention to. This graph analyzes how many hours you would have to work to pay for your education over the years. 

You know HAVE TO have other support (to be saddled with debt). We are setting our children up for less success as they go out into the world. 

I hate saying this but at times I believe this is deeply questionable behavior by our education system. Should we have shiny buildings in lieu of setting students up for success? Should we make undergrads pay $60k per year for university research? Etc. 

To learn more about how Duke justifies charging it's undergrad $60k per year, please listen to this short, and excellent, episode of Planet Money: http://goo.gl/rhfI5Q  (Duke believes that in charging you $60k per year, they are giving you a $30k discount! YES, a 30,000 dollar discount!!)

Randal's post, from which the graph below is taken, is here: http://goo.gl/RJc08H Short post, well worth reading.

Please note that I'm not saying University leadership consists of terrible people. These are some of the smartest people on the planet. I believe there is massive group think going on, an arms race of focusing on the wrong things, and not enough focus on why they really exist.

Pretty excited about this class on behavioral economics with Dan Ariely, author of, amongst others, Predictably Irrational.

An interesting look at different engagement numbers on G+ compared to Facebook. Read the comments too...good stuff from +Danny Sullivan 
 
This pretty much summarizes why I'm beginning to enjoy G+ a lot more over Facebook. With Facebook's suppression of posts, the recent performance of each photo post has been abysmal. Here is a comparison of recent images that I posted here and on G+. Note that I have 6k followers on Facebook and 14k here, but that still doesn't explain the staggering differences. My latest image got over 200,000 views on G+ vs. 3,000 on FB.
