Ok, after "Rework" the workplace-revolutionaries from 37signals just gave us their new book "Remote" and YES, it is an important read! Still, Daniel Pink's "Free Agent Nation" from 2001 is better hand- and brainwork! (his original article in Fast Company is actually from 1997!!! http://j.mp/16Hvs7k )

Sorry Google, but the new Mercedes S-Klasse kicks your self-driving car's behind! Oh, it also offers "hot-stone massages in its reclining rear seats, built in Wi-Fi and cup holders that keep drinks warm or cold...." http://j.mp/11PMFhZ

Sick of antagonists and procrastination? Get some help: these are two people that would speed up most people's professional lives - as usual Seth Godin nails it: http://j.mp/WMbfHh

This deserves some cred: the White House has issued a rather unusual answer to the petition for the US government to build a Death Star: http://j.mp/WMeQVj - it finishes off by encouraging people to get into tech: "If you do pursue a career in a science, technology, engineering or math-related field, the Force will be with us! Remember, the Death Star's power to destroy a planet, or even a whole star system, is insignificant next to the power of the Force."

"You will happily reveal the most intimate details about yourself" to get 'Zero-Click Shopping': http://j.mp/Wxet0X - personalisation-guru Andreas Weigend definitely helped Amazon make us discover and buy A LOT of books (and other things) we didn't know we needed! Will "Zuckerberg's Law" eventually lead us all the way?  P.S. Of course it's not Weigend who invented "Zero- or no-click shopping"! Dogbert came up with that brilliant idea LOOONG before him!

Amazing! How can Jane Brody still be writing on health for the New York Times??? To start the new year, she AGAIN gets it all wrong: http://j.mp/WtPfB8 Then again, who'd be surprised - she is the author of a book promoting "Living the High-Carbohydrate Way"....

Boring is best! At least according to the Economist's "Where to be born index". http://j.mp/RZo6KG.  Or as Harry Lime puts it: "In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." - the funny thing is: Switzerland didn't invent the cuckoo clock...
