What was once known as the land of cheap rip-offs may now offer a glimpse of the future — and American companies are taking notice: Chinese Tech Firms Forced to Choose Market: Home or Everywhere Else
Last Friday the remarkable Simon Sinek spoke at our CreativeMornings/San Diego chapter. The rockstar chapter that they are, they already uploaded the talk. (Mind blown!) Hear Simon speak about technology, millennials, and the importance of practicing empathy.
Simon also gave a talk titled Love Your Work at our New York chapter a few years back.
Often when we read the news we feel compelled to do something but we don’t know how. Action Button is an interactive technology featured on news content to make it faster and easier for you to impact the stories you care about — whether by donating to a nonprofit, signing a petition, or emailing a local policymaker. Don’t just read the headlines, change them.
Love where this is going.
I am never not thinking about how to get better at email. I enjoyed this article: An etiquette update: Brevity is the highest virtue. And then also, my friend Jocelyn K. Glei’s book that just came out: Unsubscribe.
“When an old person dies it’s like a library burning.”
Overheard at The Nantucket Project
Wage Islands by Ekene Ijeoma is an interactive installation about wage and housing inequality in NYC. It’s a 3d topographic map of monthly housing costs submerged in water to show where New Yorkers can afford to live based on hourly wages.
I recently purchased The Know Yourself Cards for Self-Exploration by The School Of Life and they sure keep me on my toes. I am currently trying to answer one question a night. This one in particular has hit home. I might have to rethink how I prioritize the things that are seemingly important to me.
The bar for the “most creative job application” ever received has been raised. Last week, Ryan Beller dropped off a white box with a beautifully arranged ViewMaster inside. Clicking through it revealed his resume and cover letter. Consider me (and the rest of team Tattly) impressed!
Update: We offered him the job. And, he accepted. So, YAY!
Do yourself a favor and watch this incredibly moving, raw and vulnerable CreativeMornings talk by Maggie Doyne. It is a testament to how love reveals itself in unexpected people and places.
(This talk needs a new category: Made me cry)
Do you remember the days when receiving an email was *incredibly* exciting?

“When we remove ego, we’re left with what is real. What replaces ego is humility, yes—but rock-hard humility and confidence. Whereas ego is artificial, this type of confidence can hold weight. Ego is stolen. Confidence is earned.”
– Ryan Holiday, Ego is the Enemy
Relationships are hard. But what if it’s not you or them or sex, money or even who picks up the socks. What if there is a far more primitive reason? Interesting talk by Stan Catkin.
