  1. Meagre ambitions

    Three things I haven’t even attempted at college recently, and doubts about what I’m doing all this for.

  1. 2.0 Expo 2008: Clay Shirky

    Or watch Clay give that “how do they find the time?” talk in person on this video. Worth it; he’s an awesome speaker. (via Daring Fireballl)

  2. Gin, Television, and Social Surplus - Here Comes Everybody

    Clay on the answer to “where do they [gamers, Wikipedias, bloggers, etc.] find the time?” By watching less TV. Great stuff.

  3. David Weiss: Metacognitive Miscalibration

    Thinking things are easy when you don’t know enough to tell. “There’s a great difference between 50 years of experience and 1 years worth of experience repeated 50 times.” (via Daring Fireball)

  4. Timeframe

    Very nice calendar selector widget. (via Daring Fireball)

  5. Color Wars 2008 » Youngme / Nowme

    People submit a photo of themselves as a child, alongside a photo of themself today in the same pose. Some of these are awesome. Whole lives in two photos. Time travel. Hope.

  6. Soundamus - new and upcoming music releases from the artists you listen to

    Looks at your Last.fm playlist and tells you when new music by your listened-to artists is released. Could do with some kind of threshold, but still very useful.

  7. Maybe Money Does Buy Happiness After All - New York Times

    A paper rebuts the Easterlin paradox (that above a certain level money doesn’t make one happier). (via Kevin Kelly)
