Links, Week 9: Generating investment

Writing: 26 hours, 41 minutes
Wasted time: 8 hours, 24 minutes
Gmail: 2 hours, 59 minutes
Neutral: 3 hours, 3 minutes

My best ratio yet, 3:1 writing versus wasting time. I've taken to editing my old posts, even if nobody will ever read them. And I still have some long-form pieces in the works (alcohol, publishing) that will hopefully come out next week. I'm also beginning to wonder how this blog will work in the Philippines, when I'll be without internet. 


Sports: A teary Rodman’s Hall of Fame speech, and the sportswriter who captures a relationship. Santiago Casilla pitching so slowly, a fan lost a bet. Zach Randolph’s mishaps, before he became good; flash to the past when it was Strasmas; The NBA lockout, still in the first quarter;

Me: From Sanjeev: Why green pants and yellow shoes make me look like a duck; I’ve been playing a lot of The Wreckers’ guitar-friendly songs lately; accidental chinese hipsters; I loved this guy in Inception, can’t wait for this movie; interview with ballin’ writer Jay Caspian Kang; Mark Cuban on how to get rich;

Tech: Motorola’s fall from dominance; get a scanned book for a dollar; the mother of all interview questions; see who Google thinks you are; remove yourself from background checks; the Xbox story, part 1; quitting to start a tech company; learn PERL in 2 hours;

Random: Eating trash for dinner; grocery store love story; paper and pencil artwork; transcribe a video for free.
