By Jason Wilson The 37signals weblog had a good quote from Paul Bucheit’s post on “What to do with your millions,” an expanded version of which I quote below: Many people with jobs have a fantasy about all the amazing things they would do if they didn’t need to work. In reality, if they had [...]

By Jason Wilson I’ve been thinking about this for some time, and was finally pushed off the fence today by Nicholas Carr’s post “Experiments in delinkification.” Links are wonderful conveniences, as we all know (from clicking on them compulsively day in and day out).

By Jason Wilson Thanks to Mike Shatzkin, I started thinking about January 2011. It’s like reading those fools over at Publishr, who have this annoying habit of making you think about what will be, rather than what is now. I hate it, but you know, secretly love it.
