The internet of yesterday

The internet of yesterday wasn’t bulletproof, but you might say it was bullet-resistant.

It wasn’t regulated. It was totally distributed. It wasn’t dependent upon anything other than existing telephone infrastructure.

Making remote work work

The crashing surf of the ocean. The cry of seagulls. A gentle salt breeze. A laptop balanced upon a pair of nicely tanned legs.

The allure of B-movies from the eighties and what I’m doing about it

It’s a sort of pathology, but I love B-list movies. So late last year, I decided to start a website dedicated to B movies and the celebrities that star in them.

Living to work or working to live

I was in the aisle and met an old friend.

“We’re trying to just work to live, not live to work,” she said.

It’s a nice sentiment. But behind those words were years of strain, debt, and unemployment. You can’t fix that overnight.

When a lack of money negatively affects health, family, and time, more income will undoubtedly improve your quality of life.

It is a luxury to be able to choose your work.

It is a luxury to be able to work, even. Many in the world are unable – mentally, physically, or economically.

We should be careful to not waste our chance to work.

Waterbirth

If you’re like me, sometimes you wonder about people.

Everybody does. Sometimes it’s buried deep within, but nary a soul on the planet hasn’t looked at someone and wondered what on earth?

They can be a completely trim and presentable person, but the instant you look into their eyes you know that they’re completely 100% off their rocker. It’s the way they don’t blink, or the way they protrude like they’ve got some sort of thyroid disorder. Except it’s not thyroids.
