Phenomenal on many levels.   Thanks Mark for forwarding this on! 
Because we can't improve upon perfection, and because it's silly to try and summarize a speech that should be read in full, we present the full copy of Admiral William McRaven's May 2014 Commencement speech at the University of Texas at Austin. McRaven, BJ '77, Life Member and Distinguished Alumnus, is the commander of U.S.…

Check out what Google's patents suggest about the future of SEO
Matt Cutts, the head of search spam at Google, recently released a video in which he discussed a future where links weigh less into the ranking of a website.

This is pretty cool! Google provides a visual archive so you can see visual history within street view on Google Maps.  Would love to look back in time and see the paper route from the 1988-93.

Interesting post from last month about top 2013 apps for Lawyers, productivity, etc.  I zoomed in on #20 a cool app that supports the importance of knock-out punch, digestible messaging.  Great messaging that differentiates is the daily challenge that we wrestle with for all of our TSEG clients; whether it applies to email subject lines, above the fold website copy, social media or any brand related activity in the market - it can be the difference between a call or a bounce.  Great top 20 list!  
It’s that time of year again, time to choose the most popular mobile apps from Legal Productivity Blog’s App of the Week series. We’ve expanded to the top 20 apps this year to shine the spotlight on … Continued

Is a functional brain worth $3,499?  Why don't NFL players wear carbon fiber helmets?  LMGTFY (or is it LMGTFM in this case)... According to this article, racing helmets are making their way onto the football field: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/writers/will_carroll/08/29/simpson-ganassi-helmet/ which is good.  Since carbon fiber helmets reduce impact by 40%.  If they can save a guy who crashes at 100+mph on a race track, seems like they could save a guy too from Ndamukong Suh.

Phenomenal article.   Great title too. 
Our best college students are very good at being critical. But that’s not enough.

Great find Brad.  Interesting (in a dull pain kinda way) but reveals, at least something, about how google talks publicly about PR/SEO. 
 
A new Google patent verifies that brand mentions could be considered "implied links" in their algorithm. 
Google validates that PR is SEO in patent filing. Read how Google uses PR in its search result computations.

this is funny. 
In this dramatization of transcripts from a legal deposition, a lawyer becomes embroiled in an absurd argument about the definition of a photocopier.
