I often quote Bill Murray playing Hunter S. Thompson in the movie Where the Buffalo Roam by saying It still hasn't gotten weird enough for me. That doesn't mean life is boring. It definitely doesn't have to be. Life can be an interesting mix, much like what I've been reading these past few weeks.
A couple of weeks ago, a friend asked me what license I'm publishing The Monday Kickoff under. I hadn't really thought about that — I'm just curating links after all. I didn't think of that as something I needed to license.
After about five seconds of thought, I decided to use a CC0 Public Domain license for the posts this space. Yeah, I'm nice like that ...
A quick note of thanks to everyone who reads what I publish in this space each week. The response The Monday Kickoff has been getting is exceeding my expectations. I'm glad you're finding what I post here interesting and useful. Please share it freely.
And a special thank you to those of you who've made small pledges of support. In the last week or three, I appreciate your support. An ff you want to support my work, check the end of this edition to learn how to do that.
With that out of the way, let's get this Monday started with these links:
Recently, a few someones asked me if I read everything that I link to in these kickoffs. Yes, I do.
I do a lot of reading during the week — at lunch, while commuting, while waiting around, and all that — and try share the best of what I read with you. I might not agree with everything I read, but it all does provoke more than a few thoughts.
Welcome to this week's edition of the Monday Kickoff, a collection of what I've found interesting, informative, and insightful on the web over the seven days.
Last week went by quickly, didn't it? With winter coming to the southern hemisphere, I'm looking forward to days (at least the weekdays) to whiz by like that. Even though it doesn't snow here in Auckland, winter in the Land of the Long White Cloud's biggest city can be a bit numbing at times.
Welcome to the first edition of The Monday Kickoff!
Every Monday (in New Zealand), I post three sets of three links to what I've found interesting, informative, and insightful on the web over the last week. It's a great way to get your brain working at the start of the week and to give you something to read on your commute, during a break, or at lunch.
