Earl was trying to track down an out-of-print book called The Adventures of Marco Polo. He scoured two used book stores in New York City, had no success, and caught a taxi to a third. The cab driver was unusually chatty, and during their conversation, Earl glanced at his license on the dashboard. His name? Marco Polo! Art was sitting at his computer typing an e-mail missive when his cat Coal jumped from his lap onto the keyboard.

From Gongkai to Open Source About a year and a half ago, I wrote about a $12 “Gongkai” cell phone (pictured above) that I stumbled across in the markets of Shenzhen, China. My most striking impression was that Chinese entrepreneurs had relatively unfettered access to cutting-edge technology, enabling start-ups to innovate while bootstrapping. Meanwhile, Western entrepreneurs often find themselves trapped in a spiderweb of IP frameworks, spending more money on lawyers than on tooling. Further investigation taught me that the Chinese have a parallel system of traditions and ethics around sharing IP, which lead me to coin the term “gongkai”.

16 Goals To Set For Next Year That Are More About Enjoying What You Have Than... Milestones are markers that you’re evolving – they do not create emotional fulfillment in the way we think they will. This confusion is why with the dawn of each new year, our resolutions are to change our lives, rather than to change ourselves. But what if we made goals that were more about loving what we have rather than chasing what we don’t? What if we realized that it’s what we were seeking in the first place?

Fifteen Things for When the World is Shitty and Terrifying. Laquan MacDonald was seventeen and murdered by a Chicago police officer in cold blood. I watched a video of his murder, along with most of America, right in between reading about how Americans are terrified of letting refugees from war-torn Syria into the country, and reading about how a man with a rifle opened fire at a Planned Parenthood in Colorado yesterday. I can’t think of anything else to say that hasn’t already been said about how horrible and sad and awful and bleak and shitty and unfathomable all of those things are. I can’t.

Daily Rituals: A Guided Tour of Writers’ and Artists’ Creative Habits by Maria Popova Hemingway wrote standing, Nabokov on index cards, Twain while puffing cigars, and Sitwell in an open coffin. “We are spinning our own fates, good or evil, and never to be undone,” the William James’s famous words on habit echo. Transmitters — Energous Corporation A WattUp™-enabled system uses a multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) transmitter that sends up to 23 dBm across a 120-degree directional span, creating a 3D pocket of energy using the 900MHz (5.7-5.8GHz) RF spectrum. The power router scans the local environment with low power beams in order to determine in which directions to form beams to a particular receiver. These beams include reflected beams from walls, ceiling, floor, furniture and other inanimate objects in the vicinity. The collective converging paths of all the beams deliver the energy to the receiving device’s antennas. WattUp™ software ensures that this occurs in the area that has the largest part of the converged energy (the “energy pocket”). For multiple receivers, the system repeats the environment scan to identify all possible and registered receivers and directs the power router’s antennas to form multiple energy pockets, each of which can power a receiver device anywhere within a 15-foot radius.
