Death of the Resume

"Are you leaving behind an easily found trail of accomplishment? Few people are interested in your resume any more. Plenty are interested in what you've done."

Resist Fascism: Stop SOPA

"For more than a decade, we have spent millions of hours building the largest encyclopedia in human history. Right now, the U.S. Congress is considering legislation that could fatally damage the free and open Internet. For 24 hours, to raise awareness, we are blacking out Wikipedia."
Jimmy Wales, Wikipedia Founder

This is nothing short of corporate interests corrupting, to the core, one of the greatest American achievements of all time: the Internet. Submit your opinion to Congress now.

Punk Rock World Traveler

"I beg young people to travel. If you don’t have a passport, get one. Take a summer, get a backpack and go to Delhi, go to Saigon, go to Bangkok, go to Kenya. Have your mind blown. Eat interesting food. Dig some interesting people. Have an adventure. Come back and you’re going to see your country differently, you’re going to see your president differently, no matter who it is. Music, culture, food, water. Your showers will become shorter. You’re going to get a sense of what globalization looks like. It’s not what Tom Friedman writes about; I’m sorry. You’re going to see that global climate change is very real. And that for some people, their day consists of walking 12 miles for four buckets of water. And so there are lessons that you can’t get out of a book that are waiting for you at the other end of that flight. A lot of people—Americans and Europeans—come back and go, Ohhhhh. And the light bulb goes on."

Do it now

Look at you. You’re young. And you’re scared. Why are you so scared? Stop being paralyzed. Stop swallowing your words. Stop caring what other people think. Wear what you want. Say what you want. Listen to the music you want to listen to. Play it loud as fuck and dance to it. Go out for a drive at midnight and forget that you have school the next day. Stop waiting for Friday. Live now. Do it now. Take risks. Tell secrets. This life is yours.

Stay curious

"The more familiar the world becomes, the less information the brain writes down & the more quickly time seems to pass"
David Eagleman, Neuroscientist

What’s the lesson to be learned from this? Remain curious, don’t get too comfortable, and live on the edge of your understanding.
