Finally finished John Steinbeck’s East of Eden.  Only took me forever to get through it!

Now I am rocking Hugh MacLeod’s Ignore Everybody.  This book is a pretty easy read and I’ll finish it tonight.  So many great one liners and quotes and general inspiration!

“The sovereignty you have over your work will inspire far more people than the actual content ever will.”

I am hoping that Chris Anderson picks me, picks me! picks me! to get a copy of his new book… Free.

I loved the Long Tail and still check his blog on a regular basis.  He is doing a contest where you send him an email and maybe he sends you a book  for… get this… FREE!

“When scarce resources become abundant, smart people treat them differently, exploiting them rather than conserving them. It feels wrong, but done right it can change the world.”

Go with yourself.
