80. Know less, think more. In our parents' generation, it was difficult and expensive to be knowledgable. Since then, the ubiquity of the Internet has made knowledge almost trivial to obtain, yet we still teach kids by rote and revere those who can recall details of the French Revolution at dinner parties. The market correction will come, at which point those who've spent significant time internalizing wikipedia will realize that they truly are redundant.

Chris Brogan: "If Life Really Ran Like a Ship… I went on a cruise last winter. The plus was that there were lots of great people that I like aboard the ship. The negative was that if I wanted to change my mind, I couldn’t. I was on the ship for the duration of the journey. With the courses we set for ourselves in life, we tend to jump back off the ship quite often. Sure, ships make course adjustments. But they don’t just cancel the trip at the first choppy wave. They move forward and maintain their original travel plans. "

Jo Parfitt - "As I write this, my messy desk is groaning under piles of paper. My computer screen is necklaced with Post-It notes. It is raining outside. I am hungry. I spent a whole day out with a friend and now have to cram an entire working day, a blog post and this article into one remaining hour before supper. I have no idea if this piece will be any good or not. I have tried to focus, but then I did have so much I could have said. But, the thing is, I wrote it. And then I pressed SEND."
