Om Malik shares the values that built GigaOm over the past seven years as he moves on to his next chapter.
It’s heartening to see that those of us who aspire to produce quality signal amidst a world of noise share a similar underlying set of motives – here are 7 things I learned myself in 7 years of building Brain Pickings.(via explore-blog)
Oh, the entryway! The first thing you see when you get home, the last space you walk through before you leave… and a magnet for jumbles of jackets and piles of dripping boots. Here are ten ways …
La entrada es ese espacio que debe ayudarte a desparramar todo cuando llegas cansado a casa.
This package, valued at 1900USD, has everything a freelancer needs to start their business, including:
Contracts for Creative Professionals:
We hired lawyers and industry veterans to consult on the creation of these contracts and to ensure that they’ll meet the needs of almost any freelancer.
The “10,000-hour rule” — that this level of practice holds the secret to great success in any field — has become sacrosanct gospel, echoed on websites and recited as litany in high-performance workshops. The problem: it’s only half true. If you are a duffer at golf, say, and make the same mistakes every time you try a certain swing or putt, 10,000 hours of practicing that error will not improve your game. You’ll still be a duffer, albeit an older one.
But I said: I’m sorry, I don’t think I can take the job if the company doesn’t know what the job is. You need to figure out what you want before you make an offer. I don’t think anyone could succeed in a job where the very role is in dispute.

Sketches and prototypes for a plush cubic cat.
First I made two small prototypes (Mark I and Mark II), about 1” by 2” or 2.5 by 5 cm. Next, I made a larger black version (Mark III, about 2” by 4” or 5 by 10 cm). I then adjusted the design a bit, resulting in the final blue grey Mark IV.
Although I’m hopeless with felt crafting, I’m really pleased with the result. It’s great fun to hold in your hands a 3D version of something which until then only existed on paper.
Sketches & original design made with Fiftythree’s Paper. The plushes are handmade from felt with a polyester filling. Maybe I should start selling them at Etsy…
Prior to iOS 7 designers and developers didn’t really think much of the status bar. It existed outside of our application’s frame and simply occupied 22 pts of screen space. Now that’s all …
