And, if you’re like me, and can spend entire winters watching tongues of fire flicker in an open fireplace, as Bill Watterson said, “there’s never enough time to do all the nothing you want”. But you don’t have to listen to me, part-time mountain dweller and full-time maverick.

How Carol Bartz gave Autodesk’s Carl Bass his big break

Yesterday, while taping our latest Autodesk PandoCast, I asked Autodesk CEO Carl Bass who he’d credit with most influencing his career. Below is a transcript of our conversation. Carl: The person I’d give credit to is actually Carol Bartz.

Poor Parisians tried to put up a fight but were eventually forced to flee, their homes knocked down with minimal notice and little or no recompense. The city underwent a full transformation—from working class and medieval to bourgeois and modern—in less than two decades' time. Every August, Paris now sees another rapid transformation.

Fighting Paranoid and Incompetent Micromanagers and Control Freaks.url

Why Architects Drink. As with everything in my life lately, my balcony garden has suffered due to a combination of too much work and too little energy to do anything else. I've resigned myself to the fact that a lot of this year's balcony bounty will just have to involve annuals and/or sacrificial perennials as accents to the band of usual suspects that I drag in and out of the house every year, much to Guy's chagrin.

In this top photo of the 2011 Mile High Balcony Garden, you can see a few of those Mile High mainstays, including my two Chinese evergreens on the right, several pots of pothos and some sort of arrowhead plants in the midground, and the massive arboricola in the background that we've named Feed Me Seymour. Shooting the other way, we fully absorb the fact that, on the right, I've killed a boxwood and have yet to pull it out of its pot. I'm calling it a golden boxwood; Guy says I've just made an example out of it to the rest of the plants. Either grow or die, but don't fuck around. The simple habits of mentally tough people.

By James Robinson On July 1, 2014. What Corporate Climbers Can Teach Us - WSJ.

The tedious standard of spending 40 hours a week sitting in a cubicle is fading as employers and workers both embrace the benefits associated with telecommuting.

Interestingly, we didn’t discover a link between a high salary and happiness, with occupations such as gardeners, personal assistants and construction workers also making it on to our list.
