Which smartwatch should you buy?
Right now, the Pebble takes the lead over Android Wear, but it's likely that far better things are right around the corner, and the smart move might just be to wait for those.

Achieving Zen With Auto Layout - The Book
You can purchase Achieving Zen With Auto Layout today and get access to a PDF of the current state of the book, as well as a private GitHub repository where I am writing and storing all the sample code as I go. So far this has proven to be a wonderful way to write, because buyers of the book are able to provide direct feedback to me about the book so I can iron out any confusion or missing things I may not have thought of during my first draft.

Wearing Android
I agree with most of this, but I get a lot of utility from seeing notifications on my wrist. Note that I already severely limit what notifications I receive, so when my wrist buzzes, it's pretty much always for something I care about.

The Pitchforks Are Coming… For Us Plutocrats - Nick Hanauer - POLITICO Magazine
The only way to slash government for real is to go back to basic economic principles: You have to reduce the demand for government. If people are getting $15 an hour or more, they don’t need food stamps. They don’t need rent assistance. They don’t need you and me to pay for their medical care. If the consumer middle class is back, buying and shopping, then it stands to reason you won’t need as large a welfare state. And at the same time, revenues from payroll and sales taxes would rise, reducing the deficit.

The First Micro Four Third Lenses You Should Buy
The Panasonic 20mm f1.7 pancake lens is my everyday lens, and I also have the Olympus 45mm f1.8 that they recommend as a portrait lens. I'm actually quite happy with the nice small body, the two fast lenses and little to no complications of fuss.

What Do I Do?
A great post by Jeff Robbins about his role as CEO a Lullabot.

> But the truth is that “replace yourself” is just a concept — an ideal. It could also be restated as “You can’t do everything. Find people to do the things you’re doing. Then find other things that need doing.” And repeat. It’s a switch from working on the work to working on the company.

ignorance isn’t the same thing as dumb. Lots of smart people are ignorant about a lot of things. It’s an issue of exposure. And you can’t deal with exposure via a law.

Everything dies. Sometimes they die well.
And therein lies the problem of side projects. They will either muddle along as a fun side project and provide a necessary distraction from your main work, or they will grow and demand your attention. They want to be fed. The answer to “what if this fails” is easy. You shut it down. The answer to “what if this succeeds” is much harder. Especially when you’re not willing to walk away from your main job. And I wasn’t.
