Regrets is one of the best short films I've seen. It was created by the talented team at Coudal Partners and featured in Jim Coudal's talk at South By Southwest.
It's absolutely hilarious, with a touch of sweet sadness, but Jim used it to celebrate our curiosity. Each of us finds joy at a different stage within the process of discovery. Some of us live to brainstorm new ideas, others love the creative work, and others still love the finished product above all else.
However you're wired up, seek out opportunities to get your fix. Don't hate the part of you that most makes you feel alive.
Scoble recently launched his new show for Fast Company and one of his first interviews was with Jeff Bar, the evangelist for Amazon's web services team. More and more companies and web startups are using Amazon's (yes, the book people) online storage, hosting, and database tools to run their sites.
It's a fascinating, innovative move into technology by a retail company. And so far, a very successful one. Very interesting!
I've been using FeedBurner for years and still love it. Basically, you provide your blog's RSS feed and it does some nice formatting for different newsreaders and a simple address you can share with the world. The best part is you can change your blog host without impacting your RSS subscribers, since the feed address your readers use does not change. Plus it's free and provides some nice (though not entirely reliable) stats.
Now, FeedBurner has made it dead simple to move a feed from one FeedBurner account to another. Say you worked for a company and helped setup a blog or two using FeedBurner. You can easily move those feeds to someone else's FeedBurner account if you happen to leave.
Or maybe you experimented using your personal account and now want to switch to a shared corporate account instead. Here's how to do it.
This is a wonderful online bookstore and library all rolled into one, and will be a big help in encouraging your kids to read.
We really appreciate being highlighted by TypePad. When we decided to do Family Reads, we spent a long time looking at all the different options for hosting and developing the site. In the end, TypePad was the perfect choice for us; it's hard to beat the combination of power and simplicity.
Today is also a big day for Family Reads because we just posted our 50th review!
