Six Links Worthy Of Your Attention #163

Is there one link, story, picture or thought that you saw online this week that you think somebody you know must see?

My friends: Alistair Croll (BitCurrent, Year One Labs, GigaOM, Human 2.0, Solve For Interesting, the author of Complete Web Monitoring, Managing Bandwidth: Deploying QOS in Enterprise Networks and Lean Analytics), Hugh McGuire (PressBooks, LibriVox, iambik and co-author of Book: A Futurist's Manifesto) and I decided that every week the three of us are going to share one link for one another (for a total of six links) that each individual feels the other person "must see".

Check out these six links that we're recommending to one another:

Now it's your turn: in the comment section below pick one thing that you saw this week that inspired you and share it.

    It's not life changing or super educational but for anyone who has ridden a NYC subway, this video will make you laugh.

    "Now it's your turn: in the comment section below pick one thing that you saw this week that inspired you and share it."

    Well let's start with this inspiring post--a great way to start the week.

    That's the thing--it's normal to struggle with one's path to success, ego, and money (aka as an entrepreneur for example)--but as Noam points point out there is a much larger picture and it's pushing the scene, culture, or technology forward towards larger means. Let's face it: there's no point in usurping power for money, but disruption for progress is a different slant altogether.

    The world is in competition now. Coders and designers speak their own language. The only blank is who they work for. I would advocate for a half system/half free market model personally which allows for more social mobility. I also understand that Mr Big needs control.. and by that i mean a steady job and benefits. The flip side is the innovators that push the system forward towards the bigger picture.
