☛ The birth of Xbox Live
I really enjoyed this story of innovation and the culture at Microsoft in the late 90s and early 2000s.
From the outside, it looks like they’ve gotten away from the type of leadership and vision that allowed them to create Xbox and the Live service, and that is a shame.
Needless to say, I’m spending more time on the toilet these days.
Ok now I think my anti-vax friend from high school is just fucking with all of us.
how we are all still alive is a big mystery.
This is good information, but not entirely correct. Additives and softeners (as referenced in the PP and PE columns) are tested for FDA compliance in any application that includes eating, drinking, or internal bodily contact.
It’s never a bad idea to try to inform yourself about what you come in contact with in everyday life, but can we please stop short of fearmongering?

Here’s a possible answer: think about what it’s like when you learn something for the first time — for example how, when you are young, you learn to ride a bike or navigate your way home from school. It takes time to learn new tasks and to encode them in your memory. And when you are learning about the world for the first time, you are forming a fairly steady stream of new memories of events, places and people.

This resonated hard (loudly?) with me because I have been trying to articulate the exact same thing since I began my MBA program. I crave the pace that learning brings to my life. It doesn’t have to be in a classroom; just do something new.
