Spotify: 1 million plays, £108 return - News - Music Since being launched last year, the music website Spotify has grown at an astonishing rate – signing up more than 7 million customers to its free service and recruiting nearly 300,000 subscribers willing to fork out £9.99 for the privilege of listening to the likes of Lady Gaga, Tinie Tempah and Rihanna without the interruption of adverts. The company, founded by the Swedish entrepreneur Daniel Ek, plans to stream 36 billion songs by the end of this year when it launches in the United States.

What Startups Can Learn From Haruki Murakami I'm a big fan of Japanese writer Haruki Murakami. The genius of Murakami is in his discipline, focus and determination.

"Dream Good": Woody Guthrie's New Year's Resolution List, 1942 by Maria Popova How to keep the hope machine running, or what socks have to do with self-actualization and belonging. As a lover and maker of lists, I often agree with Umberto Eco that “the list is the origin of culture.” But, more than that, it can also be a priceless map of personal aspiration, as is the case of the kinds of lists we make this time of year — resolution lists. This particular one, penned by the great Woody Guthrie in 1942 at the tender-but-just-wise-enough age of 30, is an absolute gem of humor, earnestness, and pure humanity.

Guidelines for Reading and Analyzing Literature Literature is classified by genre (type or kind). Although critics disagree on how to define and label different genres, the three basic forms of literature are prose, drama, and poetry. Most works we read as literature are imaginative (fictional), but some nonimaginative (nonfictional) works are read as literature as well. Nonfiction prose includes history, biography, autobiography, religious and philosophical writing, literary criticism, political tracts, travel literature, and essays on many other subjects. Prose fiction has been divided, since the origins of the modern novel in the eighteenth century, into the novel, the novella or novelette (a story of intermediate length), and the short story. Predecessors of these genres include fables, parables, and tales of various kinds (including folk tales, fabliaux, and fairy tales).
