Even Comedy News

I was curious to find out how John Oliver got the job of hosting the Daily Show while Jon Stewart is away for the summer. (If you don’t watch it, don’t worry, that’s not really what this is about). While looking around, I found an interview of John Oliver in the New York Times talking […]

Things I Never Knew

I love finding out something new. The internet is the best thing that ever happened in my life. I can’t wait more than 2 seconds to look it up when someone asks a question. Do you know how they make steel shapes (for boat propellors and golf clubs)? First, they make a wax mold. Then […]

New and Old

I read in June’s Success magazine about the founder of Ikea. First, I was surprised to find out he was born in 1926. With all the startups run by under 25 year olds now, I think we’ve become conditioned to thinking it’s success by 25 or else. He started selling low-cost furniture in 1947 and […]

An Hour? Is That It?

I was reading an article in Inc about Duolingo, which is a language training website. It caught my eye, because earlier in the week I’d seen some people discussing it on a forum and saying it was very good. Anyway, the co-founder, Luis von Ahn, was asked “Do you take a hands-on approach with the […]

Avoiding the question

There’s an article in April’s Entrepreneur magazine about answering questions in media interviews. It says “Media trainers will say, “Answer the question you wish they had asked.” Politicians do this.
