Several great things that I at least want to be able to find again:

– Been listening to podcasts of TED Talks. Some pretty cool stuff by a lot of creative people. Love this one by Susan Cain: The Power of Introverts. She argues that while society and school and workplaces seem to value extroverts more, it’s really introverts who provide the creative spark that we need.

Introverts get their stimulation from being alone and able to think by themselves, she says, not from being around other people so much. Really good stuff. Made me want to go hide in one of these cabins with a bunch of books because, yes, I am an introvert deep down inside.

How to pitch an article to a major magazine.

– Quick way to stay updated on sports news: www.quickish.com. Fantastic.
