Is it the right way to go? Given the low rate of offenders re-entering the prison system and the crazy low rate of incarceration - maybe. And that's not to say that Norway doesn't have "normal" prisons - but this is an interesting way to deal with some of them.

We live on a planet with finite resources. How long (as a species) can we keep growing and consuming resources?

This is very interesting - how to use Twitter (but it could apply to just about anything) to build a functioning, agile town.

This is quite interesting. I like the consultative approach and a lot of other things here. I wonder at what size company it starts to break down - or if the act of hiring people that you like to work with fixes that problem.

Earth is a single point of failure - regardless of whether humans destroy it (through poisoning the world or through human-induced climate change - whatever) or if there is some external force (like a large rock traveling at high speed through space).

My opinion on this is divided but this is an interesting article from someone who calls themselves a libertarian - so in theory, to the right of politics. It's a good read.

Actually, it probably isn't just tech but this is the world I live in. I don't understand why people (for the most part, men) care about gender (for the most part, female). I work with so many smart and business-savvy women - and on the other hand I've worked with many not-so-business-aware men that I really can't believe in the 21st century that this type of stuff still exists. But it does. Scary.

I don't totally agree with this opinion - there will always be a place for status symbols. But the rest I get - cars are just a utility and the cheaper+easier they are to use the better off we'll all be. Car manufacturers (and makers of other goods too) need to understand that.

A very interesting (and moving) story about a journalist who lost an arm in an accident.

Back in the day at Com Tech our culture was (in summary) "Employees first; customers second; suppliers third - everything else will work itself out". This was amazingly successful and was driven (lived!) from the top down by David Shein and his team. When Matt Sullivan and I created L7 we managed to capture that again - because it was a great feeling working at Com Tech and we wanted to get that back.
