What I’m ... readingThe $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau. Who’d have thought that launching a profitable business with almost no cash is totally do-able?!
Watching … The Crowd Goes Wild. But it’s not even about sport anymore for me. I could watch Andrew Mulligan and Mark Richardson talk about anything and still find it entertaining.
Listening to … Whatever’s new on Spotify. Right now it’s ‘In Colour’ by Shapeshifter.
Downloading … A back-catalogue of TED.com talks (I was a bit slow on the uptake).
Avoiding … Riding my scooter in the wet. It turns out that saving the environment and parking for free does have a cost when it’s raining.
Coveting … The Defy ‘Square’ Messenger Bag. Hand-crafted in the USA from reclaimed military canvas and truck tarps. An early Christmas present for myself, looks likely.
