Things I’ve been reading online

http://kalman.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/07/30/can-do/ – awesome, inspiring reminder of why we need to keep thinking and inventing. And man, Ben Franklin was incredible!

http://www.theatlantic.com/doc/200807/google – Is Google Making Us Stupid? I think so. So does Nicholas Carr. Seriously, this isn’t just a luddite’s expression of how kids these days are going down the toilet (or something), but rather a surprisingly comprehensive look at how technologies affect the way we think.

http://www.danpink.com – Daniel Pink’s blog. I came across Daniel Pink through his TED talk, On the surprising science of motivation. It was indeed surprising, and from there I found his Johnny Bunko site, which is also a real eye-opener.
