I saw this from Phil801′s post on Facebook:

I usually don’t like long lists of things… but as a professional presenter I think this list is superb:
Here’s an interesting article on how to price your stuff:
This is a blog post to read a few times, and learn from. I don’t think you can read it just once:
A friend asked me advice on my green smoothies because I said I liked mine… lol, that sounds like a request from someone who takes a sip of his and thinks “bleh!” Here are my tips:
Here’s a typical throw-it-together “recipe,” which is an adaptation of doing this for the last few years:
Hit the smoothie button. Then do it again. That’s it… it’s a big meal, or drink it throughout the day.
Also, most of the time I put in chia seeds since we have a ton of them here… but I do it only in the cup, after I have blended the smoothie. Putting them in the blender is a bad, bad idea (it is a huge pain to clean later).
There are a gazillion recipes, and really, when I make a smoothie I just look around my kitchen to see what should go into it… make up your own stuff based on nutrition and taste.
Here’s a picture from many, many years ago. My grandpa died while my family was were overseas – I must have been around 12 or 13 years old. Before that I remember seeing him a couple of times, but that’s it. We didn’t live close to where they were.
The stories of him and his family, though, are legendary. He had an impact on a lot of people, and apparently had this smile all the time.
As for me, I think I look a bit mischevious. Look at those cachetes! Chale. And that shirt. Geesh… where can I find one of those now?
Last night I went to the LaunchUp event (website admittedly stinks, but sign up on the top-right to get invites to the monthly events, starting again in January) and saw Josh Coates speak… he was pretty awesome. He got cut off for time, but if I ever hear of a chance to hear him speak again, I’m going.
Anyway, after all of the presentations, I learned about some new companies as I milled around. One guy (I can’t remember who) showed me what his company was doing with Google Cardboard. Haven’t heard of it? I hadn’t either.
He pulled a cardboard box out of his backpack and put his phone in it… and you now had your own virtual reality machine. It was super cool. I can’t remember what I was looking at – something with space, or a planet or something like that, but to use your smart phone as a screen, and a homemade cardboard contraption as the viewer… it really was geeky cool.
Here’s a short video on kind of how it works… on the Cardboard page you can learn how to make your own … (and develop apps for it):
A couple of years ago I blogged about a “brilliant About Us page“… I recently found another one that is just awesome. This is from Canvas, which provides software (learning management system, or LMS) for schools. Josh Coates is the guy who sold his startup to EMC for $76M, and he’s running canvas now. Check out the Canvas (aka, instructure) Our Team page.
It looks fun and playful, right?
If you mouse over each person’s image, it changes from the playful image (Steve’s playfulness is his clothes, which you’ll have to go to the page to see) to a serious corporate image. But it defaults to the playful one. Isn’t that cool?
Great job Canvas peeps!
I love a good chocolate chip cookie.
Just the other night we made cookies and I remembered advice from THE person who makes the most available cookies I’ve had. Her dad owns a bakery and she has some kind of midas-food touch.
I simply follow the instructions on the package.
Yeah, like it’s that easy, right? I do that to, exactly… with a few exceptions.
Those darn exceptions have got to be the downfall of “perfect.”
Anyway, it’s been on my mind this week, and look at this article I just found: Ask a Chef: Chewy chocolate chip cookies
Here’s what I love about this article: instead of a recipe (which there is, actually, at the bottom), it focuses on the science of making a good cookie. When you have words like creaming process, seeping, “run out,” hydrated, emulsify, brown the butter, etc. you know it’s going to be fun to read.
Kurt Hugo Schneider is AMAZING. Check out his YouTube channel here.
How is it in such a crazy, noisy, crowded space (music on YouTube) he can get hundreds of millions of views?
On the originals list, each of the uploads has over 1M views:
Check out his popular uploads… the lowest has over 30M!!
If you are interested at all in making money from YouTube, or getting credibility, or customers, etc., you need to become a student of Kurt Hugo Schneider and his work. Amazing, and well done!
