Every Wednesday I share five things I liked and think you might like too. Here are this week’s five things…
- Note To Self is one of my new favourite podcasts. It's a technology podcast focused on "being human" in the digital age. Their two most recent podcasts Mindfulness on Demand and Come and Sit with Marina Abramović were great.
- Talking of being human, watch this... Can We Auto-Correct Humanity? (3m 27s). It might make your day a little better.
- Everyone likes being comfortable, but it's not always what's best for us — The Healthy Uncomfortable.
- You might not have heard of the term McMansion, but you've probably seen one. A recent episode of 99 Percent Invisible did a great job explaining what makes them so terrible. I don't think I'll be able to look at certain buildings in the same way again. For a more in depth (and hilariously snarky) look at these monstrosities check out the blog McMansion Hell.
- On reading a couple of Wait But Why posts earlier this week, I was reminded of a great Anne Dillard quote... "How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives". The posts in question, Your Life in Weeks and 100 Blocks a Day, reimagine life and time as a series of blocks, and ask the simple question: How do you use your blocks?
