Scott H Young:

Here’s a brief outline of a few of the ideas I’m going to share for free over the next seven days:

  • The exact time management system I used to complete the MIT Challenge
  • How to get through hundreds of pages of reading, without losing focus
  • Which note-taking technique you should use (and which common one you should never use)
  • The technique to boost your memory, so you remember content years after the class was taught
  • How to always have confidence before taking any exam

Again this is completely FREE, but only to people on the email list.

Deal.

What I learned while live-tweeting a friend's funeral

October 23, 2012 - permalink

Mathew Ingram:

Some said that the reporter was being disrespectful of the family in that case, even though he had been invited to the ceremony by the family themselves, and did nothing to interrupt the proceedings. As I wrote on my personal blog at the time, I couldn’t really see any reason why live-tweeting should be forbidden, provided journalists were allowed to be present in the first place. How was doing this any different from taking notes in a notepad and then writing a blog post or news article later? Provided it didn’t disturb anyone, I didn’t see the problem them and I still don’t now.

How to be Sociable When You Don't Feel Like It

Thorin Klosowski:

One of the best ways to deal with small talk is to turn it into an actual conversation. You can do this pretty easily by mentioning small details until something sticks, or even just by learning the right questions to ask. If you're struggling to think of questions questions, the FORD technique (family, occupation, recreation, dreams) is a simple way to come up with interesting topics.

A quick redesign in under one hour

October 22, 2012 - permalink

I just redesigned my blog in under one hour. The changes contain simplier design, bigger headlines and more possibilites to format single elements like I want to (Plus my face isn't watching you on every single page).

What do you think about the new design? Do you like it? What do you not like? Questions about questions. Let me know in the comments.

With ♥ from Daniel

About a bad sequel and Microsoft cereals

October 21, 2012 - permalink

4 years ago I was pleasantly surprised after I've watched that random movie I'd buyed from my local DVD supplier. 90 minutes full of action and a plot which was unexpected intense and gripping. Where I live, they call this movie 96 hours. The world maybe better knows it under the name of Taken.

This week I saw the sequel. And believe me when I say that this film is one of the worst productions Hollywood came up with this year. The dialogues are poor, the action scenes are lame and the whole plot is filled with weird shit which is going on. Like an untrained girl throwing grenades through Istanbul or a revenge seeking father who doesn't care about that his son was a female trader.

But lets talk about the good things: Liam Neeson is still a good actor and he did a good job. At least that good as you can get it out of the script. Because he can't do anything about a bad written story or the weird movements of the camera man, he's just an actor. So he is innocent when you start thinking that he can kill people by simply grabbing them into the face. Maybe Luc Besson thought Chuck Norris is looking for a replacment?

So the conclusion for you is: Don't watch Taken 2. Go watch Looper or Savages. I haven't seen them yet, but I'm one hundred percent sure that these movies aren't the same waste of time as Taken 2 was.

But

about bad sequels.

One week ago I secretly ranted about Microsoft. One day later I got a present from @yve_cab, Microsoft cereals:

What comes around, goes around. Good move there broham :D

I haven't tried them yet but they do look tasty. Maybe Microsoft should left the Software industry behind and start selling cereals as their main focus.

Surprising Your Customers

Chase Clemons:

My little cousin decided to dress up as Woody from Toy Story for Halloween this year. After finding the perfect version of that costume from the Disney Store, his mom had it shipped to the office since we didn’t know exactly what time it would arrive in the day. When it got here, the words “Love – Andy” was written in marker on the outside by someone from the Disney Store team.

Cool idea.
