Happiness vs. Purpose

Venture Cyclist

Yesterday, my wife and I had a comical exchange on a deep topic. Dorit started "I don't want my children to be happy, I want them to have a purpose in life." I replied "I don't need my children to have a purpose, I want them to be happy," then I paused and said "of course, you need a purpose to be happy, otherwise it's all pretty aimless."

AOL Search Data Web Interfaces

Florida Venture Blog

Well it didn't take long for the published AOL search data to get a web interface. In fact, there have been many appearing in the past 24 hrs. That's where noteworthy patterns will become apparent. As shared by many in TechCrunch comments , there is definitely some bad karma coming from outing specific AOL users -- particularly by name.

Wicked Nasty

Venture Cyclist

I went out on a ride with Hannah this afternoon. couple of young teenage boys passed us and one commented to the other (about my recumbent) "that bike is nasty!" Hannah assures me this is a complement - although not as much of a complement as "wicked nasty" would have been. We rode 5 miles and Hannah is starting to get the hang of gears. Cycling

34 miles

Venture Cyclist

I rode 34 miles this morning, on the Minuteman Bikeway. started in Arlington Center (to avoid the hassles of crossing Mass Ave in two locations). The distance from Arlington to Bedford is 8.5 miles, so I went there and back twice. It was fun to see the traffic backed up on Route 128 when I crossed it. Apparently I burned 1800 calories.

Jason Calcanis on How to Walk Away (via Rick Segal)

Entrepreneurship Blog

Rick Segal points to a very good 2 minute section of Dave Winer's podcast with Jason Calcanis and others. Jason talks about what to do when a business doesn't work out and I think he makes a lot of sense. Of course, the hard parts are keeping your own emotions out of the decision and then knowing where your walk away point really is

Two flat tires

Venture Cyclist

Hannah and I headed out this afternoon for opportunity to bike on both sides of the Charles River, including the closed off section of Memorial Drive. Our friend Guy Sapirstein arranged to meet us in a parking lot near the river. This was planned to be Hannah's first ride of any consequence. As we pumped up the tire we felt we were good to go.

Thinking About the Giants in 2007

Entrepreneurship Blog

I sent the text below to a handful of friends who are SF Giants fans. One of them wrote back that it would make a good blog post. Furthermore, of the 3 returning starters, Mike Matheny's career maybe over due to the concusion he suffered earlier this season. Fortunately, these guys are not free agents. think Bonds has a better year next year.

Identity Theft: Michael Arrington vs. Seth Godin?

Entrepreneurship Blog

So there is a lot of mention about the use of identity theft related to malware and financial account fraud. There is no question that this is a big problem, but there are some precautions that one can take to lessen the risk. How do we know that the comment left by "Seth Godin" actually comes from the famous author and not some mischievous troll?
