Never read comments again

If you give an infinite number of monkeys an infinite number of typewriters eventually YouTube comments will emerge.

Picks of the Year - Still Untitled: The Adam Savage Project - 1/5/16

Will Smith: If you give an infinite number of monkeys an infinite number of typewriters eventually hamlet will emerge. There is probably a Hamlet level in Super Mario Maker …

Adam Savage: But you know the response to that is now thanks to the internet we know this is not true …

Will Smith: Somewhere in the YouTube comments …

Norman Chan: Hey, the Martian came out of the internet

Adam Savage: Yes it did! Hey is there a Chrome extension which will allow me to never have to read comments again …

Will Smith: Yes

Adam Savage: Good, I need it. Because I don’t want to read comments anymore. I’m done with them.

How Mice Turned Their Private Paradise Into A Terrifying Dystopia

In 1972, animal behaviorist John Calhoun built a mouse paradise with beautiful buildings and limitless food. He introduced eight mice to the population. Two years later, the mice had created their own apocalypse.

The few secluded spaces housed a population Calhoun called, “the beautiful ones.” Generally guarded by one male, the females — and few males — inside the space didn't breed or fight or do anything but eat and groom and sleep. When the population started declining the beautiful ones were spared from violence and death, but had completely lost touch with social behaviours, including having sex or caring for their young.

Hitachi Elevator HF-1

The average elevator is shockingly unpolished and unfriendly. The whole industry could do with a shakeup. The HF-1 is pretty, though I think the layout of the information panel could do with a bit more finesse.

Students rethink iTunes

Khoi Vinh:

When one of your flagship software applications is assigned in schools as a case in feature bloat, it’s crossed some threshold for acceptability. Time to fix iTunes, Apple!

How quitting my corporate job for my startup dream fucked my life up

Ali Mese:

Your mind is constantly f*cked up with a million things going on inside and no other person, including your girlfriend, has a single clue what is going on in there.

Amazon boss says Jeremy Clarkson's Top Gear follow-on show 'expensive but worth it'

The Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos, has admitted it will be “very, very, very expensive” to launch a new motoring show with Jeremy Clarkson and his Top Gear co-stars after signing up the controversial trio in a multimillion-pound deal following their departure from the BBC.

Bezos, who is worth an estimated $50bn , told the newspaper he was very excited about Clarkson’s move, but did not confirm if he had met him or his fellow presenters or how much they were being paid.

Wonder whether Clarkson and co find their experience working for Bezos 'utterly soul crushing but worth it'.

I haven't got time, for this Mickey Mouse bullshit.


All hail ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Robison Meyer for The Atlantic:

In its 11 strokes, the symbol encapsulates what it’s like to be an individual on the Internet. With raised arms and a half-turned smile, it exudes the melancholia, the malaise, the acceptance, and (finally) the embrace of knowing that something’s wrong on the Internet and you can’t do anything about it.

Your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit.

Ira Glass:

Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.

Don’t think I ever got out of this phase; don’t think I ever will. Doesn’t stop me from pushing on.
