–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?)
(I think I might do this. You type in all your books and it creates a virtual recreation of your library. Has anyone done this?)
–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.)
Your post reminded me to update my shelf. Looking at my paltry collection reminded me that I need to read more.
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.
