I was doing some reading on hackernews (im a lurker) and found some good posts:
- http://dshipper.posterous.com/if-youre-not-failing-youre-not-trying — lol @ the m&m’s analogy, that would be a funny thing to do. I especially enjoyed the elephant story, it is very true we place these limits on ourselves.
- http://michaelochurch.wordpress.com/2011/01/30/yes-rich-kids-already-won-the-career-game-heres-why/ – An interesting view on how class affects workplace promotion and attitude towards work.
- http://downloadsquad.switched.com/2011/03/03/speed-up-google-chrome-by-enabling-hardware-acceleration-and-pre/ – Follow these instructions to speed up google chrome, also look at some of the other options on that page (about:flags) for the mac there was a cool 3 finger swipe option, and one that disables plugins with known security vulnerabilities.
