This is why we can’t have the internet of nice things.

I am going to find a way to use this phrase as much as possible. I encourage you to do the same. (Link is to a few seconds before it is used in the podcast.)
Loved this post:
To get started on one of your lingering interests, you probably don’t need to read about it as much as you think. Go. Do it. And learn from there.
Learning is not a passive experience, it’s an active one. Once you have some basic knowledge, stop talking about it, stop reading about it, stop thinking about it, and just dive in and start doing.
Things only get done because people do them.
That is all.
