Scalable Living: changes you can make to be more productive. I’ve been going through lots of changes behind the scenes that is leading me down a new path I call “scalable living.” To get there, over the past year, I’ve unfollowed about 10,000 people on Instagram. Then I did the same on Quora. I deleted hundreds of apps from my iPhone. Totally changed how I communicate with all of you (I almost shut down my blog, instead, preferring to spend time where most of you are hanging out anyway: on social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Google+).

Over that same time I added more than 1,500 filters to Gmail, which clean out my inbox of a lot of crap. These changes will continue the rest of the year. I might only have one day left on earth. Well, I would focus on doing things that have scale. Now, we don’t need to be so dramatic about these choices we make. Peter Thiel gives new class of students $100K to forgo college.

Peter Thiel gives new class of students $100K to forgo college

Meet the new class of under 20 would-be college kids dropping out of college to work on their entrepreneurial dreams under the watchful eye of investor Peter Thiel. The early Facebook investor set up a program last year to give 20 teens and young adults the chance to play around with $100,000 while building a business. Now in its second year, The Thiel Fellowship is unveiling the newest fellows to join the program. Thiel’s Fellowship is simple; select 20 promising students, no older than 20, with grand ideas to change the world or start a new business. Then, give them $100,000 over two years of the program and surround them with mentors to teach them. Ambitions are high for the 2012 class.

Publishing is Dead, Long Live Publishing. I've discovered that " Something is Dead " headlines attract a lot of attention so I couldn't resist using one myself today. With Seth Godin announcing that he's going to ditch his traditional publisher (Portfolio part of Penguin), does it mean that book publishing as we know it is dead? I find this topic especially interesting as its something that I discussed at length when I spoke at the Digital Book World Conference back in January. Here's my take. Seth Godin is among the most popular best selling marketing authors and his latest book Linchpin sold over 50,000 copies. The publisher probably played a big role in the editing and the distribution of that book.

Seth Godin knows his readers better than his publisher does . Time will tell whether other leading authors adopt a similar model. Viral darwinism. Google Next Victim Of Creative Destruction?

Et c’est Kevin Kelly , l’un des papas du super magasine sur les nouvelles technologies Wired , qui vient de le mettre en avant lors d’une passionnante intervention sur l’histoire du web pendant le Web 2.0 Summit qui se tient en ce moment à San Francisco. Kevin Kelly a réussi à expliquer, avec des mots très simples, l’histoire de ces 6257 jours. En trois phases chronologiques : 1- Les ordinateurs sont liés entre eux.

Et le réseau sert à partager des « paquets ». 2- Les documents sont liés entre eux. 3- On commence à lier des données entre-elles.

Mobile search groove. Topic: Search | Author: Peggy Anne Salz | Date: May 4, 2009 Judging from the high level of interest in social search-related companies and concepts – such as Taptu, abphone, and people-powered answers search from ChaCha – expressed by participants at conferences where I have spoken, I am confident social search is more than just another hot topic.

Combatting the Hype: 76% Don't Access the Mobile Internet
