How many tabs do you have open in your browser right now? If you had to stop and count, it’s probably too many. An overcrowded browser is like a cluttered home.

If you suffer from spending precious mental energy searching through all 42 tabs in your browser to find the one you need, consider looking into some tools to help you regain that lost time and attention. Medium recommends several good ones to try out. You may ...

The "Dutch Reach" car-door opening technique prevents injury to cyclists

One of my fears is opening my car door just as a cyclist is coming by, causing a dangerous collision. I always look before I open, but I'm going to start opening the door with a "Dutch Reach" as an added precaution. It's simple to do: open the door with your right hand, which forces you to look over your shoulder and look for oncoming bikes. [via Kevin Kelly]

How to read fiction to build a startup

“The book itself is a curious artefact, not showy in its technology but complex and extremely efficient: a really neat little device, compact, often very pleasant to look at and handle, that can last decades, even centuries. It doesn’t have to be plugged in, activated, or performed by a machine; all it needs is light, a human eye, and a human mind. It is not one of a kind, and it is not ephemeral. It lasts. It is reliable. If a book told you something when you were 15, it will tell it to you aga...

The definitive Patreon reading guide

At nearly six years old, Patreon has gone from startup to king of membership. Now an established leader in an industry that’s been flipped on its head, Patreon’s path has been anything but predictable — peppered with its share of milestones, mishaps, pivots, champions, and critics — and offers invaluable insights for founders, investors, creatives, or those looking to make sense of the new media landscape. Since we’ve probably read almost every word written on Patreon as part for our “unde...

Does manual labor boost happiness?

Working with your hands affects brain chemistry in a positive way. Automation technologies can strip away a sense of agency and meaning in our lives. Using your hands connects you with your environment in a way that most technologies cannot. None Violence has become such a part of the fabric of American society that many stories pass without much commentary. Mass shootings need to be bigger and grander than ever to stay in the headlines; solo homicides rarely receive a glance. We pass over news...

The steering wheel and the guardrails

Your car may have a powerful engine, but if the steering wheel is out of whack, it’s probably a mistake to simply drive faster. And putting in premium gas and removing the muffler doesn’t help much either. And if you’re driving on a crowded road, it makes no sense to hit the gas and tell anyone who gets hit to be more careful. We don’t have to wait for a wreck, a smashed engine, to put our tools to better use. Capitalism is an extraordinary engine. It has remade every corner of the Earth, and do...

What Can’t Be Copied?

I N A WORLD where nearly everything can not only be copied but distributed cheaply—and in some cases for free—what takes on significance and value—what matters—are those things that cannot be copied. Kevin Kelly highlights a number of things that can’t be manufactured in his book, The Inevitable. They are things that add value to what is a commodity. He begins with trust.

Forget the sex, the hot new book about Google is an important reminder of what Sergey and Larry are really after (GOOG, GOOGL)

A new book has generated headlines over Sergey Brin's 'playboy' period during Google's early days, but there's another big takeaway in the book that readers in the tech industry should not ignore. The book explores a deep-rooted and intense desire that's driven Google's founders all these years. Brin and cofounder Larry Page stumbled onto the magic search business but that was never their main interest. From the start, Google was always intended to be an AI company. They're now closer to that ...

How much do patents matter to innovation?

Patents—rights that governments grant to inventors for new inventions—pervade the modern world. The US alone grants about 300,000 of them annually, mostly for components of, or methods relating to, larger end products. Your smartphone, for example, contains thousands of patented features; but even many seemingly simpler items, such as cosmetics, often contain one or more. It’s no big surprise, then, that as patents have exploded in numbers and importance, they have begun to attract considerable ...

The time I interviewed Harlan Ellison about his lawsuit against a fan who posted his stories to Usenet

In 2001 I wrote an article for The Industry Standard about the Harlan Ellison's one man war against people uploading his short stories to Usenet. I interviewed him on the phone for the piece and the first thing he told me was, "I can't talk to you. I'm very busy. I've got a deadline." He then launched into a 30-minute rant about everything wrong with the world (example: "You just look around and say, 'Mother of God, the gene pool is just polluted and we really ought to turn it over to the cockro...

Stewart Brand on the Whole Earth Catalog’s legacy over 50 years Stewart Brand's Whole Earth Catalog was hugely influential on my life. I saw a copy when I was about 10 years old and it was a portal to a mind-blowing new world of possibilities. My outlook on everything changed that day. Years later, I traded subscriptions of The Whole Earth Review for bOING bOING (the zine, which Carla and I launched in 1987). Whole Earth Review was edited by Kevin Kelly, and he later hired me to work at Wired (he co-founded it with Louis Rosset...

PR 2.0 for Communicating Research

A Guest Post By Kevin Anselmo, Founder of Experiential Communications Kevin Kelly, co-founder of Wired magazine, noted the following in a BBC story: “truth is no longer dictated by authorities, but is networked by peers. For every fact there is a counterfact. All those counterfacts and facts look identical online, which is confusing to most people.” Oxford Dictionary’s word of the year in 2016 was post truth: an adjective defined as ‘relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts...

Looking at Women’s Contribution to Computing to Learn How to Fix the Internet

As you may be aware, something was brewing at CanLII in recent weeks (and months) so I skipped my last turn as columnist. This means my last post here was the one I wrote before the holidays. When I write something and (finally) ship it, the mere fact of reading it “in production” makes me see new flaws that I didn’t even come close to seeing while I was in the thick of drafting. I’m sure many of us are like that. The flaw I saw with my last post when live on Slaw was that while the multiplicati...

Jeff Bezos Shares Video of 10,000-Year Clock Project

An anonymous reader quotes a report from CNET: Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos shared a video on Tuesday of his latest project: a giant clock designed to keep time for 10,000 years. Buried deep in a west Texas mountain, the project is in partnership with San Francisco-based group The Long Now Foundation, which grew out of an idea for a 10,000 year clock that co-founder Danny Hillis proposed back in the '90s. Now, the 500-foot tall mechanical wonder is finally undergoing installation. Bezos is fronting the...
