I tend to col­lect a vari­ety of inter­est­ing links through­out the week, at least to me. I always think that I’ll post them and write a lit­tle about them but in truth, I don’t have that much time and would rather write about things that are more impor­tant to me. So I’m going to just start post­ing 5 or 6 occa­sion­ally just to have them out there.

1. The Com­ing Hyper Infla­tion. We’re print­ing money faster than the ink dries. If you think the Fed can han­dle ton­ing it down when the chain starts to catch on the cog, you’re more opti­mistic than I am.

2. Why The Left Derided The Tea Par­ties. It’s on Rea­son so you have to wade through some of the hyper­bole but it has a core of truth that is worth considering.

3. Writ­ing Soft­ware is like…Writing I have a lot of thoughts on this topic but they haven’t really con­gealed into any rec­og­niz­able mass yet. Suf­fice it to say, the more I think about writ­ing soft­ware, the more I think it’s much closer to art than science.

4. Where To Find New Ideas

5. An Intro­duc­tion To Mind­ful­ness Med­i­ta­tion This is the best intro on the web I’ve seen and the link to A Guided Med­i­ta­tion is a fan­tas­tic descrip­tion of how to begin and end a meditation.

6. Tam­ing Per­fec­tion­ism I strug­gle with this a lot, specif­i­cally as it con­cerns writ­ing and devel­op­ing pet projects at home. Noth­ing is ever quite good enough. In one of my gar­den project books, the author was describ­ing how to build an arbor and said “Remem­ber, if you screw up the mea­sure­ments a lit­tle, it’s just a gar­den project.” I may start apply­ing that to ALL projects.
