A Future Worth Wanting - James Whittaker, Microsoft - YouTube
Why software disappoints James Whittaker. Somewhat confusingly, the "How to change the way people think in four easy steps" article, mostly about Whittaker's approach to speaking, embeds this video, as if the video were an illustrative example.

Using a Hosts File To Make The Internet Not Suck (as much)
"Use this file to prevent your computer from connecting to selected internet hosts. This is an easy and effective way to protect you from many types of spyware, reduces bandwidth use, blocks certain pop-up traps, prevents user tracking by way of "web bugs" embedded in spam, provides partial protection to IE from certain web-based exploits and blocks most advertising you would otherwise be subjected to on the internet." Per Ray Tayek, in the 2/25/2013 OCJUG email newsletter.

Read this before posting technical questions online. Eric Raymond and Rick Moen, re: how to post requests for technical help; per Rob Williams. I probably first viewed this in 2000. 15 years later, I find it's been carefully maintained and still offers very good guidance and explanation.
