What Should I Read Next Suggests Books To Read

How do you decide what to read and what not to read?

Taking on the 750 Words March Challenge

Taking on the 750 Words March Challenge

In his web-site-turned-book Things I Have Learned in My Life So Far, Stefan Sagmeister says keeping a diary supports personal development. I couldn’t agree more. Writing is a form of thinking, and journaling is a great way to help yourself think personal issues through. I’ve fallen off the journaling wagon lately though, but inspired by former Lifehacker editor D. Keith Robinson’s tweet tonight, I’m getting back on using Buster Benson’s 750 Words webapp....

About That Google Server Breach

Douglas Rushkoff floats the idea that Google’s China announcement is a smokescreen for the fact that their servers got hacked–which means your data isn’t safe in the cloud. A serious and well-publicized security breach would be a crushing setback in Google’s cloud apps business. Was the China surveillance and Gmail break-in it, and we just missed it amidst all the cheering? The question mark at the end of his headline makes me think that Rushkoff’s unconvinced...

Confessions of a Public Speaker Demystifies Your Fear of Public Speaking

Getting up on stage, taking a microphone, and facing an expectant audience scares the crap out of most mere mortals. But rock star public speakers from Al Gore to Tony Robbins inspire and inform thousands of people with their talks–and charge $30,000 an hour to do so. Scott Berkun’s new book, Confessions of a Public Speaker, explains why, how, and what goes on before and after a great speech. “Good public speaking is based on good private thinking,” Berkun writes...
