Daily Reading List — October 7th

How Puerto Rico Can Rebuild And Become The Hong Kong Of The West – Not. Bloody. Likely.

Has fitness gone too far? – I’m not saying this can’t be a problem for a small percentage of people. But when I’m out and about, it doesn’t seem to be a front-page issue.

Police Search For ‘Mad Pooper’ Who Dumps And Runs – Pretty sure I know this chick. Didn’t know she moved from Knoxville though.

Health Care Providers Can Use Design Thinking to Improve Patient Experiences – ” In Mary’s case, she couldn’t explain her concerns through the standard patient experience survey, which is initiated after an appointment and which comprises general questions focused on the medical visit. Were it not for the hospital administrator’s initiative to ask Mary what was going on, her concerns may have gone both unnoticed and unaddressed.”

But the box has been checked.

You Can’t Sweat Out Toxins. That Doesn’t Mean Sweating Isn’t Good For You. – I’m healthy as a horse. A lathered horse.

Apple Watch To Be Sold Alongside Aetna Health Insurance Plans – Interesting.

Error 404: A Look At Digital Decay – It’s a little bit like the destruction of the Library at Alexandria; if the Library at Alexandria kept up with what you ate for lunch every day.

How the Heroes and Villains of Game of Thrones Pay (and Dodge) Their Debts – “You accidentally slapped me in the face, so now I get to slap you in the face.” ~My kids. Daily.

Daily Reading List — June 19th

3 Trends That Are Changing The Way We Work Today – Yes. Yes. And yes.

"People don’t share because they like a project or brand … they share to help people who they want to see succeed."

To it's logical end…if you're only sharing with yourself, you only want to see your self succeed. Q.E.D.

Five Libertarian Lessons in HBO’s Game of Thrones – I would say there's a sixth lesson as well…the rule of law binds everyone. At least everyone with honor.

After Ned lost his head, there probably wasn't a more honorable guy in all of Westeros than Stannis Baratheon. Not the most charismatic to be sure, but he at least respects the rule of law. I mean, the guy didn't even really want to be king…he was just doing it because it was his duty.

Stannis acts on principle. And it doesn't really matter to him how many people have to die for the principle to be followed.

I'd better stop. That last sentence is a pretty good argument for political pragmatism.

The DOs and DO NOTs of running your first marathon – DO chase down people in your office who are trying desperately to get away from you talking about your training. Sprinting after these people counts as intervals.

Google Fit: Another Try At Health Data? – Until I can get an on-the-wrist HRM that doesn't spend more time completely dead in the water *cough Garmin cough* than it spends monitoring my HR, I'm going to sit it out.

Then again, I guess my only real option is to continue struggling with a HRM that is usually completely dead.

Cartagena, Colombia added to 2014 World Cup schedule – This would be a really cool place to race! #jealous

Everything Is Broken–All Software Is Bad – Hello World! At least the Pinboard->Twitter->WordPress plugin that will autopost this onto my blog works.

Well…most of the time.

School cancels reading program rather than promote “hacker culture” – Related…I'm currently reading "Natural Born Learners", which is about homeschooling/unschooling and very hacky itself in a lot of ways. Every kid is different, and every family is different. But I'm more and more convinced that your best bet at getting an education (whatever that means) is to hack it together yourself.

Focus – "Success comes from doing the hard part. When the hard part is all you've got, you're more likely to do it.

And this is precisely why it's difficult to focus. Because focusing means acknowledging that you just signed up for the hard part."

Word.
