  • Bering Sea super storm photo set – #
  • RT @kevinkrim: A guide to Jack Dorsey's 80-hour workweek (very impressive, if it works…time will tell) #
  • Alan Blinder argues against flat tax in WSJ. I'm assuming an editor will soon be sacked. #
  • Sign #3759 that you were off the grid too much lately: Just realized that I haven't checked email in two days. #
  • Fave moment from my Q&A with Sequoia's Valentine in Palm Desert last week: He asked for hands of people funded by Sequoia, & none went up. #
  • Dear Twitter-sphere: What is the difference between an "iterative" and a "reiterative" process? #
  • Trying to watch Roger McNamee's talk on the future of tech. I defy you to do it while seeing his hair. #
  • Unnerving data about young people's preferred employers, led by Google and Dept of State – #
  • Here is that same student survey data on preferred employers, but from Europe – #
  • From now I am going to call Roger McNamee the "Tech Whisperer". Why did he whisper his way through his TEDx talk? #
  • I cannot read LOLR (lender of last resort) without Bored of the Rings flashbacks to Goodgulf Greyteeth, Frito Bugger, et al. #
  • Tyler Cowen currently debating some cornuccopians – #
  • Google has most effective dot-com TV ads this year, while TheLadders and Go Daddy are least – /cc @cenedella #

  • Breathtaking video of starling murmuration. #
  • Lex in the FT over the weekend: "What a pity the world cannot always live in the aggregate." #

  • RT @CMEGroup: Book review from @financialtimes — Currency Wars $study #

  • The smart, funny George Bush guy who spoke in Palm Desert should run for president. Too bad he shares a name with Obama's predecessor. #
  • That Buffett is buying IBM/Intel etc. makes me feel even better about my MSFT short. The sector is late-life value play. #

  • CA tax revs highly levered to stock option exercise, so rev gains ahead on LNKD (soon), Zynga etc later. Could shrink deficit quickly. #
