I used to collect ideas wherever it was convenient at the time, which always made revisiting them inconvenient later on. It seemed like no matter what clever notebook scheme I came up with, or whatever file structure I made on my computer, I still just dumped things from my brain, never to be seen again.
Then one day I met Evernote®, and after a few fits and starts, I’m finally in a groove where my ideas are working for me, and so is the way I store them.
Net neutrality, the concept that Internet Service Providers should only be permitted to sell completely unfiltered, unthrottled access to the Internet, has been a hot topic for a few years now. The future of the idea has looked bleak for some time. But that may be changing.
I’ve been experimenting with some alternative password management schemes lately, which got me to thinking: what will replace passwords? They’ve been around a very long time, and yet remain largely unchanged as a mechanism, despite their ubiquity. They’re a little like toilet paper: they’re antiquated, they’re a pain in the ass if you use them too often, and they usually aren’t strong enough. Think of all of the things that have advanced so much in society over the last one thousand years, and passwords are still just some junk you remember. So what can be done about the fact that the only thing protecting out secrets is only as good as toilet paper?

I just popped open my DAW and found I had basically finished a song without realizing it. Without further ado, here is Get Home, from my album FNI. I hope you enjoy it!
The world is a scary place. We should get home.
I don’t play Killer Instinct and I don’t own a PS4, but go check out the KI stream from PaulB over at Twitch.tv. It’s a great crowd to chat with and the game is awesome to watch. Plus you get to watch Paul break down the game with surgical precision. Much of his analysis and advice applies to any video game genre, never mind the fact that a lot of it s relevant to self-help in general. You get to watch him take Sabrewulf to a new level!
