It felt like spring around here last week. Now it’s time for flurries.
- Rack ’em up – Timely Tips For Recession-Racked Entrepreneurs. Not everyone is getting racked, but it’s time for some offensive posturing nonetheless. (Forbes)
- The future of fly fishing – Montrose 11-Year-Old Is A Flyfishing Prodigy. I’ve seen it myself – the kid can cast! He’s also promoting fly fishing amongst youth, which is a darn good thing if this report scares you. (CBS4 Denver, and h/t Marshall)
- Wikipedia and its search rankings munching the competition – Britannica Boss Trash Talks Google And Wikipedia. I knew Jorge Cauz back when he was an Andersen consultant on the Britannica project. The culture back then was to piss all over technology, and it seems he hasn’t been able to beat it. (Techdirt)
- Talking the book a little too much – Jim Rogers Tells Himself to Shut Up. Much as I hinted at earlier. (Paul Kedrosky)
- Don’t forget to smell the coffee (and the flowers) – Technology is Great, but Are We Forgetting to Live?. I think many are – see the outdoor recreation report linked to above. (Read/Write Web)
- The point in which low cost and/or free technology starts hurting – $200 Laptops Break a Business Model. The MacBook Pro I type on daily is loaded with free, open source software. But it also serves as a walking office, and I’m not going the netbook route anytime soon. (New York Times)
