Seven steps to remarkable customer service

(Seriously. This dude is 100% right.)

George Orwell: 12 Writing Tips

(Keep it simple. Use short words over long words. Is my image trite or cliche? Good advice.)

Explanations for 11 Important Philosophical quotations.

(I happen to disagree with a few, but this is still an interesting article. The classics are easy targets for manipulation, so beware.)

Who will win the next high-tech jackpot?

(The web is ripe for the next “big player” to step up. Who do you think it’s going to be?)

Shelfari

Rudius PR:

The OODA Loop and You: Strategy of Allowed Chaos

(Robert’s new entry is spectacular. John Boyd is huge, I posted about him last week. Read this, trust me it’s good. Digg it here.)

Tucker Max: Serious Art, Frat-guy Fun

(Solid article from the Daily Cal. Although it leans fairly heavily on the Tucker Max article I wrote a little over a year ago, which I’ll post later.)

  2. I signed up for Shelfari, using your link.

    The easiest way to do it is to put in maybe 30 books you’ve read and then find a person with multiple common books. Going through their list will yield many hits, but the adding system of Shelfari is cumbersome.

    I decided to be honest and include all the books I’ve read, which puts some goddamned stinkers on my list.

    Bishop Berkeley was a terrible read; I dreaded slogging through him in British Empiricism.
