DIY: Indispensable goods

We’ve lost something. As we’ve become more efficient at producing everything, its become cheaper and cheaper to just buy. My iron just broke. I dropped it on the ground and it shattered the water reservoir. But I didn’t hesitate to immediately order a new one from Amazon that will be here tomorrow thanks to free 2-day shipping included with my Amazon Prime membership. I’m scrapping all my furniture and buying new decorations for my apartment. I wasn’t thinking twice about it. Then I saw this video:

Oh, The Places You'll Go!

You can get so confused that you’ll start in to race down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace and grind on for miles cross weirdish wild space, headed, I fear, toward a most useless place. The Waiting Place…

…for people just waiting. Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go or the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow or the waiting around for a Yes or No or waiting for their hair to grow. Everyone is just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for the wind to fly a kite or waiting around for Friday night or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil, or a Better Break or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants or a wig with curls, or Another Chance. Everyone is just waiting.

NO! That’s not for you!

Somehow you’ll escape all that waiting and staying You’ll find the bright places where Boom Bands are playing.

With banner flip-flapping, once more you’ll ride high! Ready for anything under the sky. Ready because you’re that kind of a guy!

Oh, the places you’ll go!

Thanks Wake!

Its too bad but I wish him well. He was a stalwart in the dugout for as long as I can remember. It was always thrilling to watch him pitch. Some nights that ball danced, others it didn’t. But it was always exciting. Thanks Wake for a solid 17 years.

Well, I guess I'm a psychopath then...

…guilty as charged. I pulled the plug on my Facebook account almost a year ago. I had come to find that Facebook was a big time suck. I’d sit down to do something productive - say, work on this site - and find myself looking up an hour later without having accomplished anything. I wanted to actually do something. What I’ve come to find is that it didn’t really help a whole lot in that respect as I’ve managed to find other time wasters. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely waste less time, but I wouldn’t say that I got most of that time back. Instead, I’ve found I’ve forged more meaningful relationships with those I do keep in touch with. I don’t need to get every detail about your life, and if I did, I’d seek you out for it. If I don’t, next time we catch up, you’ll give me the good parts - hopefully.

Well, I guess I'm a psychopath then...

I loved Clayton Christensen’s The Innovator’s Dilemma. This is simply brilliant. I’d kill to take him out for lunch some day. This is further motivation to get myself back to school. Hear that HBS? I’m coming.

Lawsuits filed over Zynga exec stock selloff - price will bounce back

When I put the Zynga and Facebook stock scandals side-by-side and compared them, I realized they couldn’t be more different. Zynga is accused of manipulating its underwriters to allow top-level executives, who supposedly saw a potentially poor earnings statement in the works, to SELL off large amounts of stock while all other employees had their shares frozen. Facebook on the other hand, manipulated their underwriters into BUYING more stock in an effort to keep the price above the initial offering price and attempt to create an artificial “pop” for their early investors.
