If everything stays the same, nothing changes

Hope things are well for ya over there!

Here are all the things we discussed this week, along with my favorite nuggets from around the web… Hope they inspire some good change! :)

Things we covered on the blog:

Things I enjoyed from around the web:

This new (to me) blogger –> TheFarmBabe.com

This musing on technology –> Phones smash, notebooks bend

This reason to travel more –> “When we stare at the same things we tend to think the same thoughts and feel the same feelings. When we stare at new things, new thoughts and feelings emerge. Disruption and dislocation are two spiritual principles in which I firmly believe. It may sound rather obvious to say, but if everything stays the same, nothing changes.” – Josh Radnor

This business competition you should apply for! –> “The 5 Minute Pitch is a Shark Tank like show where we’ll have 32 contestants pitch us their business for the chance to win $50,000 in prize money. But unlike Shark Tank where the sharks take a piece of equity in the business, we are giving $50,000 to one lucky company with no string attached!” – MyWifeQuitHerJob.com

This trend that dead Facebook users could outnumber the living by 2069: “The number of dead users on Facebook is growing at an unstoppable rate. In 2012, eight years after the platform launched, 30 million users had died. Today, it has over two billion users and an estimation of 8,000 users die every day. ”

This wild stat on cell phones –> “At some point in the middle of this decade, the number of active cellphone subscriptions grew larger than the number of actual people on this planet…” – Quartz

The results of that misplaced GOT cup ;)  –> “Starbucks got an estimated $2.3 billion in free advertising from ‘Game of Thrones’ gaffe, and it wasn’t even its coffee cup.” – CNBC

The reason men don’t wear dress hats anymore –> “Until cars became the dominant mode of personal transport, there was no architectural reason to take your hat off between home and office. With Dwight Eisenhower’s interstate highway system came cars, and cars made hats inconvenient, and for the first time men, crunched by the low ceilings in their automobiles, experimented with hat-removal, and got to like it.” – NPR

And this new definition of retirement:


Happy resting :)
