“If” is a pretty powerful tool for financial planning.  A good bit of advice here “ifs” let you find what you need to do to reach your goals.

Generational Spaceships are an awful unlikely proposal according to Kim Stanley Robinson, though there may be some interesting solutions to the challenges discussed.  Very thought-provoking reading, though for me I say head for the stars no matter what.

Women face barriers to leadership – and we make it too easy to put incompetent men in positions of power.  The Harvard Business review exposes paradoxes of becoming a leader versus being a good one, cultural biases, and more in a thought-provoking piece.

Leaderless resistance is usually doomed to failure – if not a sign of it.  Intriguing piece period, but also relevant if Daesh is shifting to a more distributed network of malcontents – as it seems to be loosing.  Also?  They’re also very, very unpopular among Muslims of the world.

A huge, huge list of writing resources. It just keeps going and going.

What comics freelancers got paid in the 70’s. This may make you feel better . . . or worse. I’m not sure wish.

What is known – and unknown – about XBox Indie development. Lots of unknowns, I’m afraid, but it’s not entirely dismal.

A book on Superman’s creators sounds like a great read for comics, fans, writers, and historians. May be worth picking up.

Skillbridge is trying to be a freelancing site for serious high-level stuff. This should be interesting to watch – and may provide some opportunities, or start a crash of pay rates.

Facebook stock surges. By 25%. I certainly didn’t see this coming.

Blackberry lays off 250 people. It may be time to give up. Finally. Again.

For you makers, a dress made from a book.
