Irrational Exuberance!

Notes from "Good Strategy, Bad Strategy."

March 1, 2018 Over the last month I've been reading Good Strategy, Bad Strategy during my commute, and it's been the most thought-provoking book I've read in some time. Given the number of times I've referred to it recently, I've written up some notes to share!

Seth Godin's The Dip.

February 11, 2018 Recently I read "The Dip: A Little Book That Teaches You When to Quit" by Seth Godin.

So, I've written a quick summary.

Reading "The Nudist on the Late Shift" in 2008

August 7, 2008 Today I finished reading Po Bronson's "The Nudist on the Late Shift." Its an interesting look at a wide swathe of different players in the Silicon Valley internet bubble.

Looking at the state of Valley entrepreneurship today, almost ten years later, much of what Bronson has to say is still intensely relevant.

"You Are Beautiful At All Times" by Yppah

November 5, 2007 My favorite album so far this year. Whether you call it trip-hop or electronica, its ambiguous in all the best ways, and definitely worth a listen. You Are Beautiful At All Times by Yppah is a gem.

July 17, 2007 Scaling is hard. Scaling is daunting. Scaling is chaos. If you agree with these statements you may want to take a gander at Building Scalable Web Sites by Cal Henderson. Or at least read my witty review.
