"Our user interfaces are in the amoeba stage. The iPad isn’t a game-changing device because of its user interface. It’s a game-changing device in spite of its user interface. An iPad can beat a computer at some things computers do. But if there is a pencil-and-paper equivalent that is even remotely viable, you are going to be hard-pressed to beat it with an iPad on the UX front. "

Good stuff.

Now I want to pull out a few books I've kept purely for their value as found objects and start sculpting.
Ten were promised and 10 were found, but it's still an unsolved mystery: who's been leaving intricate paper sculptures across Edinburgh?

PayPal is a nightmare. They want all but my firstborn to conduct business. Thinking I'm going w/ Craiglist and local business credit union.

And yet someone was able to "pay" me instead of just giving me money by accident, for which PayPal was more than happy to collect their usual fee.

Dalai Lama originally shared:
 
More fundamental than religion is our basic human spirituality. We have a basic human disposition towards love, kindness and affection, irrespective of whether we have a religious framework or not. When we nurture this most basic human resource – when we set about cultivating those basic inner values which we all appreciate in others, then we start to live spiritually.

For those who have iPhones and use Google Docs: do you have a particular piece of software you like for viewing/editing on the fly? I've tried a couple and been disappointed with the results.

In case you weren't absolutely sure that Paypal is evil: they shut down Regretsy's gift donation drive and seized the author's personal funds for no good reason.

PAYPAL: Only a nonprofit can use the Donate button.
ME: That’s false. It says right in the PDF of instructions for the Donate button that it can be used for “worthy causes.”
PAYPAL: I haven’t seen that PDF. And what you’re doing is not a worthy cause, it’s charity.
ME: What’s the difference?
PAYPAL: You can use the donate button to raise money for a sick cat, but not poor people.

"Hence, my suggestion is this: If you want to live a meaningfully better life, you're going to have to make the dangerous choice to dissent. A life lived meaningfully isn't denominated by digital friends, designer logos, or wads of paper notes. It's denominated by what you've lived, what it's worth to you, and what that's worth to humanity."
