–How to hire the best people you’ve ever worked with
(Good article from a guy who made the web possible on why should hire based on drive and passion, not on smarts. Comparison between Google and Microsoft)
(Brazen Careerist: Base your career path on doing what you love, not a single office to go in and out of for 40 years. Put your demands up front–which means figuring out what you want from life now.)
–Wikipedia: The Anxiety of Influence
(How inspiration from the greats tends to lead to derivative work and how the aversion to that affects us.)
-Wikipedia: The Collyer Brothers
(America’s worst case of OCD ever.)
–Linkin Park’s Mysterious Cyberstalker
(Cool article on identity left)
I read that Collyer Brothers wiki a couple of weeks back, it’s crazy. I can’t imagine collecting that volume of stuff, and the smell must’ve been ridiculous.
This lady is even crazier: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hetty_Green
But seriously, how awesome is wikipedia on this stuff?
