Story People

I am glad Nicole added Story People as she is the one who introduced me to the series and artist. The pieces are beautifully done and are whimsical, thought provoking, sad, happy, artistic and joyous.

This book is a series of conversations w/Bono, lead singer of U2 and one of the few celebrities who use their fame to improve the world. I love U2 but I read this book more as a case study in leadership, commitment, and contribution, not as a fan. If you want to get a sense for how a highly charismatic leader built a global brand and is changing the world, I recommend you read this. Great for entrepreneurs, activists, and people who want to effectively engage the world. Good for fans too ;-)

And I had no idea that it would have such a huge impact when I decided to read it. Barry Schwartz explores the Paradox of Choice and how the multitude of choices available to us for even the most insignificant things can be paralyzing. He offers insight into bridging the gap between being paralyzed by choices and being cavalier about choices. There really is such a thing as "just enough". I can not recommend this book highly enough.

A giant pool somewhere with a giant house. And a giant floating iceberg in the giant pool of the giant house for us to play on all day. And, when (or maybe more like "if") you make it to the top, there's a steep icebergy side to slide down for a fun return.

Everything about it feels quality. Your laptop is safely held within a padded cradle that is suspended above the bottom of the bag so that even if you throw the bag down your laptop should be protected from impact. The back of the bag is wonderfully padded so even with a bunch of lumpy items in the bag you won't feel them sticking into your back. As for features, how long have you got? ;-) It has card and pen holders, a detachable cellphone holder, headphone outlet, key clip and dozens of compartments; some of which are removable should you need more space. The zips have locking rings so you can padlock the bag shut. Samsonite really have thought of everything... it's just a shame I don't need to carry my laptop around more often so I can show off this fantastic backpack!

The Atlantic is one of the few print magazines to which I still subscribe. Having been around for 150 years, The Atlantic has a developed a keen sense of America's history and translates that sense into cogent and readable analysis of today's events. The Atlantic covers politics, culture, media, the arts, technology, and a bit of business. They tend to take a fairly progressive point of view but have certainly been known to be hawkish and/or somewhat conservative in some of their writings. Overall, I highly recommend The Atlantic as a magazine for active, pragmatic thinkers who want to engage in the world today.

Wireless rear speakers (that really do work!) make this truly a dream home theater system for anyone who doesn't want to go to the trouble of massive wiring issues. For someone like me who prefers to rent and remain mobile, this system makes set up in your digs easy as pie. I've owned this system for about a year now and loving its performance. I was considering do a more extensive home theater solution, but since I was renting, I was hesitant to go through the trouble of wiring someone else's house. And, who was to know that I was going to get the boot (because the owner wanted to move back in) just a few months later. Well, boy was I happy I had this system. It took me all of 30 minutes to set it up in the pad. Even if you own, not having to worry about wires from the TV, through the living room and behind your seating area, is a major benefit. And don't worry about the quality of the sound or wireless transmission (IR)... they are both excellent.

MacSaber turns your Mac into a lightsaber and lets you unleash your inner Mac-enabled Jedi. Macsaber uses the motion sensors in your laptop to detect when the machine is moving around and then synchs the movements to various cool and bad-ass sounding lightsaber effects. Very empowering ;-) When OSX is giving you grief, use The Force, padawan!

The ExecuGel have a nice heft to them as well, plus I like the design and the cool colors. They have a good professional look w/out a huge price tag (they are about $6/pen plus refills as needed) which is good since I often loose pens. An essential tool for writing down all those billion dollar ideas and world-changing thoughts, as well as the phone numbers of people you need to call back.

A good notebook is an essential item for doing biz today and Paper Blanks notebooks are my new favorite way to keep track of my thoughts and all that I need to do. They are beautifully made, very high quality, and quite durable. Really nice, thick paper and very interesting cover art. As you can see, I chose one from the Jali Walls collection but they have tons of other great stuff available. Next one I get will be from the Book of Kells. Paper Blanks could spell real trouble for Moleskin.

They effectively block out background sound w/out forcing you to blast out your eardrums. The sound quality is very clear w/surprisingly good bass for such tiny speakers (I listen to a lot of electronica w/pounding beats so good bass is essential for me). Handles more delicate classical music well too. Also, they are super-comfortable and lightweight- ideal for endurofest rides and runus. The extralong cord is nice but can get tangled a bit too easily

A long time ago I was looking to buy a genuine Civil War map for a history buff and found my way (after hours and hours of searching) to this site. The owner was a doll to work with and they did a beautiful job framing it. The map is beautiful and sure to increase in value in a few more years once it hits its 150th birthday. To this day it's still one of the favorite gifts I've ever given and the receiver was especially pleased. This is a great gift idea as they have maps from all over the world and other goodies, like a retro ad and art gallery. If you want something unique that's sure to surprise this is a great place to shop. If you know a man that is hard to shop for (dad's anyone?) or want to teach your kids some family history this is the best place to find something quality.

This is a must-read magazine: smart, balanced, and easily-grokked. The Week is an overview of what happened the prior week (hence the name) and it tends to focus mostly on politics, foreign policy, and biz/econ, though they have some good lifestyle coverage too. The Week is one of the fastest, most comprehensive ways to keep on top of what is happening. The Week summarizes what other mainstream media pubs are saying so you get a left/right/center POV on the issues w/out having to wade thru a ton of reading. Great when you are super time-constrained and don't want your worldview to become too myopic.

It's small enough to always have on you. I love how ingenious this idea is and that it's a green product. No power necessary except that of your own hands to charge it up. A great gift and an ideal emergency must-have. From product description: A two minute charge gives you more than six minutes of talk time and even more standby time. Keep charging and talk indefinitely.

The Camelbak Unbottle 100 oz. is my recommended system. The Unbottle fits perfectly in the Burton AK pack and provides 100 ounces of sweet, refreshing water. The stops at the bottom of the mountain are strictly for alcohol and food consumption, so I rely heavily on my Camelbak to keep me hydrated during a day of catching some freshies, hitting the park or just some good ole free riding. Camelbak makes numerous hydration systems for all types of activities and life styles.
