Like Picasso, I paint in periods. While he had his periods like blue and pink, I have periods like the recent one on copyright policy, certain internet technologies, and psychology.

Every now and then I like to do a rerun on my most popular post ever – The Power Nap School. I promise you, taking that 15 minute nap in the afternoon will transform you life. It makes you more creative, more energetic, and allows for fewer hours sleep at night. For me, around 6 […]

I encourage everyone to cut out and frame today’s editorial in DN. It’s one of the strangest editorials I have read in a newspaper of a democratic country, and it will probably be worth money some day.

Fiat’s Eco Drive, an in-car-USB-powered Nike+ for cars. Cool. Though I think that it would have been even cooler with an industry-wide call to action where Fiat […]
