Reading "Hand to Mouth: Living in Bootstrap America". Finding it very entertaining, informative and thought provoking (a bit too many F bombs but the book wouldn't be the same without them...).

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Oh yeah.

Cat's Cradle? Seriously disturbing. And seriously the most cynical thing I've ever read. I'm scared to like it as much as I do...

Your thoughts on Leon Wieseltier's Kaddish?

For anyone interested in aviation. I'm reading QF32 (http://www.amazon.com/QF32-Richard-Crespigny-ebook/dp/B007KTLQ5W/) by the pilot of Quantas flight 32.

Obviously his account of the flight is fascinating and gave me a new respect for Airbus (I'm generally a fan of Boeing), but what I liked more is the first half of the book that goes through his history with flying and is a very interesting read.

Off topic a sec, why on a Boeing first flight the pilots dress with their suits, where is Airbus first flight they dress with parachutes?

Anyone read The Martian?

It's like the story of Apollo 13 on steroids.

The Martian is awesome. I really hope the movie isn't too much of a disappointment.

This might just be me, but I never saw a movie that I enjoyed more than the book it was made on.

They say "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" was better as a movie.

I'm still deciding...
