  1. Personal University

    The Personal MBA reading list has got me all excited.


  1. Bristol Then and Now Photographs - Page One

    Lots of animated images with photos of past and (nearly) present Bristol. A shame more of them don’t line up better, but still interesting.

  2. “You Don’t Understand Our Audience” by John Hockenberry

    “…a series of lessons I learned about how television news had lost its most basic journalistic instincts in its search for the audience-driven sweet spot, the ‘emotional center’ of the American people.” (via Oblinks)

  3. How to Read a Book (PDF)

    Sounds like good advice. I mostly read for pleasure at the moment, rather than for just learning stuff, but this’ll be handy one day…

  4. Death and Underachievement: A Guide to Happiness in Work | 43 Folders

    Maybe my resolution should be “just be content”. But then I’d try too hard to achieve it.

  5. The Personal MBA Manifesto: Mastering Business Through Self-Education (Recommended Business Books)

    First time I’ve thought “that looks awesome” about something MBA related. (via Cool Tools)

  6. Advice for clearing literary clutter | Ask MetaFilter

    Old thread on how to reduce the number of books one owns (or why not to bother). (via 43 Folders)

  7. Luggage Pr0n: Five Head-Turning Bags for Your Notebook | 43 Folders

    Yet another geek bag discussion. Comments probably more practical than the main article. For when my 11 year old bag dies.

    Bored of reading half of the conversations my friends are having with their friends. Like sitting in a train of noisy phone conversations.
