The story of the Chinese farmer
Jason Kottke points to a talk by Alan Watts, in which Watts shares a parable about a wise farmer who doesn't jump to conclusions: "The whole process of nature is an integrated process of immense complexity, and it’s really impossible to tell whether anything that happens in it is good or bad, because you never know what will be the consequence of the misfortune. Or you never know what will be the consequences of good fortune."

The Fallacy of Success
Jason Kottke: "In a book called All Things Considered published in 1915, G.K. Chesterton deftly skewers the glut of books by gurus, articles linked to from Hacker News, and conference talks by entrepreneurs about how to be successful."

Apple's sometimes-screwball design aesthetic
Jason Kottke: "[I]t's really confusing how the same company, especially one that had such strong design leadership, could produce something as beautifully spare as iOS and something as cheesy as the Game Center app."
