I enjoyed “Conscious Business” by Fred Hofman. It’s packed with great advice on how to express integrity in business, conduct productive negotiations, and understand human emotions. Highly recommended.
You would think that in your capacity as a producer your job would be to churn up creativity, but mostly your job is to police enthusiasm.
Don’t miss the amazing piece by Tina Fey about her experience as a writer at SNL. It’s packed with great lessons, widely applicable in many other industries.
Attracted by all the fuss around mindfulness, a couple of weeks ago I decided to try meditating. I installed Headspace and tried the basic 10-day program.
I discovered at least three things:
- Meditation is a practice. It requires becoming a habit to have any effect. I tried apps like Calm and Headspace in the past, but I had never tried a daily extended practice. Now that it has become a habit, I crave for it, and I enjoy doing it.
- I thought it was BS, but it’s not. I find myself more focused, more aware, more interested in exploring deeper meditation and its effects.
- As many other practices, it becomes cooler over time. The first few days it’s kinda boring, then it gets better and better.
The Kilogram is the only SI unit that is still directly defined by an artifact rather than a fundamental physical property that can be reproduced in different laboratories. Three other base units and 17 derived units in the SI system are defined relative to the kilogram, so its stability is important.
To maintain its stability, several projects have started, trying to tie the measure of mass to universal constants. This video shows one of the most promising development, the Watt balance method.
More info about the Kilogram on Wikipedia.
This isn’t a zero-sum game; companies can work together (and with the EFF!) to advance policies and practices that protect internet users. We do what we can to protect our own corner of the internet, but also like to share our learnings with others who might build on or improve what we’ve done.
