What I Read This Morning (from 7:00 – 8:30am)

“The Brittle Grip, Part II” by John Marshall. At Talking Points Memo

Outstanding article.

“The extremely wealthy are objectively far wealthier, far more politically powerful and find a far more indulgent political class than at any time in almost a century – at least. And yet at the same time they palpably feel more isolated, abused and powerless than at any time over the same period and sense some genuine peril to the whole mix of privileges, power and wealth they hold.”


“Unified OS Advocates Are Out Of ‘Touch’ With Reality” by John Kirk. At Tech Opinions

Outstanding article. Every line is quotable.

“Design makes what is complex feel simpler, and makes what is simpler feel richer.”

“Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system is as pure as the driven slush.”


“How to Become a Billionaire” by James Altucher. At Owner Mag

James is the King of the Sensational Title. And that’s not a good thing. But what he has to say is always good.

“The absolute best companies are always built around a vision — a story of what the future looks like.”


“How to Get Ten Million Users to Your Website” by James Altucher. At Owner Mag (But probably also at James’ own site, which is very inspiring and helpful.)

“I was everywhere. I was the wall of sound.”

“Building an audience is not a trick. Loving your message, and delivering it with love, brings love back to you. Helping others is the greatest gift we are blessed to give. What other goals can you possibly have in life?”


“Apple’s $3 Trillion Valuation” by Jay Hanes. At Jay Haynes

“If we assume that Apple will grow its owner earnings at 5% for the next 10 years, and then 2% for all years after that (with adjustments for cash and debt), Apple’s market cap wouldn’t be $453 billion. It wouldn’t even be $1.2 trillion. It would be $3 trillion.”


“Places To See: Borobudur in Magelang, Indonesia”. At Livin Cool

It’s a real place. Shall we go?







Nadezhda Durova. Real life, Russian “Mulan”. You will hardly believe what you read. Incredible.

“A woman who, while disguised as a man, became a decorated soldier in the Russian cavalry during the Napoleonic wars. She was the first known female officer in the Russian military.”
