On the transient nature of things…

Yesterday’s newsletter was all about the transient nature of the universe, here’s more proof.

This is a little doodle I made back in the day, popular “Web 2.0″ names, businesses and buzzwords from around late 2005 or so.

How many of them are still front of mind, collectively? Not many.

No Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Foursquare. Imagine.

Stuff like reminds us of JUST how quickly the world is changing.

My advice?

Become Antifragile. And stay that way.

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
