what i'm reading...

Malcolm Gladwell on the power of Entrepreneurial Underdogs.  I love that he talks about people and companies who have come through great tragedy and have one of two reactions to it. Here it is in Inc Magazine:  It's go time. Screen Shot 2014-10-09 at 3.35.55 PM

Sumpto:  (a company I have great faith in) is really upping the ante with regard to rewarding college students for their interactions with Brands on Facebook and Twitter. It's a brilliant concept, really.

....we may need to change the name of this series to watching/reading/consuming...

ed snowden: the most wanted man in the world

// my own personal hero.  i think he's changed all of our lives in a way we won't know the impact of for a long time (if ever).  also, in hero category: Glenn Greenwald and James Bamford.  and all the orgs that are keeping the documents safe - like First Look Media.

 

Fruits of Solitude by William Penn

 500. For tho’ Death be a Dark Passage, it leads to Immortality, and that ’s Recompence enough for Suffering of it.  47

  501. And yet Faith Lights us, even through the Grave, being the Evidence of Things not seen.  48

  502. And this is the Comfort of the Good, that the Grave cannot hold them, and that they live as soon as they die.  49

  503. For Death is no more than a Turning of us over from Time to Eternity.  50

  504. Nor can there be a Revolution without it; for it supposes the Dissolution of one form, in order to the Succession of another.  51

505. Death then, being the Way and Condition of Life, we cannot love to live, if we cannot bear to die.  52

it's so refreshing to see a strategy company turn the gaze inwards and see if they are practicing what they preach!

i henceforth bring you the weekly update of websites and content that i'm paying attention to right now!


 

the Dodo: a rad website with tons of cute gifs of animals and also important information about animal welfare today

Fancy: i could waste an entire afternoon paging through all this stuff i never knew i needed.  and sometimes convincing myself i do need it.  it's like the modern dan hammacher schlammer.

aVC: i enjoy fred wilson's musings on early stage tech and life in general.

BWEST: seems crazy but this is still a resource that tons of people don't use in the tech industry...almost feel like i'm letting my secret out by posting it here!

theSkimm: a quick easy update on the world's news. delivered to your inbox every morning. in a snarky, fun way.  i'm lookin at you, ms janie.


 

....5 more coming at ya next week, y'all.
