    Joining a Facebook group about creative productivity is like buying a chair about jogging.

    Oh, look. Another $30 million fighter jet, buzzing my house at 7:30am.

    I hope it's a Transformer that turns into libraries and health care.

    I say: "No, sorry. I'm not on Facebook at all."

    They hear: "I live amongst hill people where The Goat we worship has forbidden friendship."

    As a nerd, you can spend a lot years feeling kind of alone.

    Then, you find a few other nerds, and suddenly you feel a little less alone.

    NPR says one key to a social media strategy is being "authentic."

    I'd say one key to being authentic is avoiding a "social media strategy."

    Imagine a guy who's REALLY into panties who makes ALL his money selling data about panties. Now he offers to store your panties.

    Yeah—that.

    Google: Thanks for looking at 100s of ads you hate.
    Apple: Thanks for buying 100s of dollars of stuff you love.

    USER: I want your new burger.
    DEV: It isn't cooked yet.
    U: So what?
    D: It's literally raw.
    U: Gimme.
    D: OK.

    Ayn Rand goes into a bar. Bartender goes, "What'll you have?" Ayn Rand goes, "Anything I want." Then, TONS of college freshman were selfish.

    Q: How many nerds does it take to ruin a joke?

    A: So. Unless I'm missing something here, I think you meant "geeks." And, "riddle." Proceed.

    If you're proud of your work, don't worry whether everyone loves it.

    If you're not proud of your work, worry a LOT that YOU don't love it.

    The technologies you choose to use say a lot about you.

    But raging about the technologies others choose to use says way WAY more about you.

    Best way to combat piracy is to release shit that's not even worth stealing.

    Suggesting the major labels are WAY smarter than we'd thought.
