What Comes Next Is the Future

What Comes Next Is the Future is a documentary film about the web created by Bearded founder Matt Griffin. It is the story of Tim Berners-Lee’s creation – how it came to be, where it’s been, and where it’s going – as told by the people who build it.

Feelings

For three weeks, Nate Milton wrote down any thought, image or memory that gave him a tingly feeling. He animated the list, and what it accidentally became was a stream-of-consciousness trek through his life. Beautiful!

Keep Quiet or Stand Up?

“There comes a moment you have to decide: Do you keep quiet or do you stand up.”

A Little Too Excited

The Danger of Silence

“We spend so much time listening to the things people are saying that we rarely pay attention to the things they don’t,” says slam poet and teacher Clint Smith. A short, powerful piece from the heart, about finding the courage to speak up against ignorance and injustice.

5 Emails Folders

This is an interesting new approach to deal with your inbox. Zach Hanlon organizes everything that lands in his inbox in 5 folders:

Inbox: the inbox is a holding pen. Emails shouldn’t stay here any longer than it takes for you to file them into another folder. The exception to this rule is when you respond immediately and are waiting for an immediate response.

Today: Everything that requires a response today.

This Week: Everything that requires a response before the end of the week.

This Month/Quarter: – Everything that needs a longer-term response. Depending on your role, you many need a monthly folder. Others can operate on a quarterly basis.

FYI: Most items I receive are informational. If I think I may need to reference an email again, I’ll save it to this folder.

So, instead of organizing your emails by Subject Line, this system organizes by due date. I am tempted to give this a try. He also says that if your work is project-based you can create this five-folder system for each project. Totally makes sense.

Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes Speech

“This instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kinda gives permission for other people to do the same thing,” she said. “Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.”
– Meryl Streep

Thank you Meryl Streep for reminding us to question and speak up. Read her full Golden Globes speech, or watch it here.

Be Optimistic (And Patient)

Be Optimistic

The Be Optimistic Enamel Sign inspires conviction that no matter the storm ahead, there is nothing that preparation and perseverance can’t overcome. Given the current political climate here in the U.S. I really want one. Or multiples, for every room and my office. But how ironic, it’s sold out.
