Write Code Every Day
This starts next week for me (after vacation). I needed this as a kick in the patoot; I'm not making progress at the speed I want to on my current project and a big part of that is context switching costs for days when I don't get to code. We'll see how I do.

Executive Retreats
My retreat a few years back with Dan and Scott was awesome. I can see how doing it with just your own team would also be awesome; in a different way. There are definitely some ideas that require distance to soak in them properly.

Heartbleed and Pinboard
> In layman's terms, the bug was the equivalent of asking a stranger "hey, what's up?" and having them tell you their most private thoughts, going on about their divorce, sharing their credit card info, whatever was on their mind at the time. You could keep asking "what's up" as often as you wanted, and hear new things each time. Worst of all, the stranger would have no recollection that it had happened.

OneNote To Rule Them All
Nice rundown by Justin. I'm still not using a "digital junk drawer" app - they all seem too laden with navigation to make getting to what I want efficient. I'm content with my NVAlt + Dropbox sync + Mobile apps and an "all text all the time" solution for now.

He knew he was wrong
> If a cadet did something better than normal, his next attempt at the task would in all likelihood not be as good, whether or not he was praised. In the same way, if he performed unusually badly, his next attempt would probably be better, whether or not he was criticised. The trainer was attaching a causal interpretation to the fluctuations of a random process; simple regression to the mean.

You're paying to speak
This sort of entitlement crap really irks me. No one is making you speak at a conference; it's a choice. Expenses covered or not is just something you need to factor in when agreeing to be a speaker.
