A cool blog post about rethinking our attitude toward failure, to make us more receptive to what it can teach us.
A post purporting to set forth some measures of self-esteem. (Note: I resist this blog/book's title ("Never Eat Alone") even though I think I ascribe to its message of social networking and creating community whenever you can. I just hate the phrase. I think too many people are already afraid of being alone, eating alone, spending quiet time with their own thoughts. If you watch people on airplanes rushing to switch on their cell phones when the flight touches down you've probably noticed this. I think cultivating the ability to keep yourself company is important.)
Sam Harris talking about, among other things, the difference between faith and mysticism.
Jeff Jarvis summarizes the Pew Internet Report about bloggers.
