In short: IPAR found that creative people tend to be nonconforming, interesting, interested, independent, courageous and self-centered, at least in general.
The Mind of an Architect 
Andrew Teman
We can choose how varied our literal or metaphorical paintbox is. The more we invest in it, the more possibilities we have at our disposal. Mastering the technique and craft of our chosen domain is an important first step in developing our paintbox, as is embracing, understanding and appreciating its achievements. But of course we can and must go further. The more we cultivate an interest in what lies outside our domain, the more we open ourselves us to new possibilities, to new and exciting combinations. As the choreographer Twyla Tharp has put it: ‘Everything is raw material. Everything is valuable.’

Ted Cruz’s Face

Via here…

Cruz in person is almost physically repellent. Psychology Today even ran an article by a neurology professor named Dr. Richard Cytowic about the peculiarly off-putting qualities of Cruz’s face.

He used a German term, backpfeifengesicht, literally “a face in need of a good punch,” to describe Cruz. This may be overstating things a little. Cruz certainly has an odd face – it looks like someone sewed pieces of a waterlogged Reagan mask together at gunpoint – but it’s his tone more than anything that gets you. He speaks slowly and loudly and in the most histrionic language possible, as if he’s certain you’re too stupid to grasp that he is for freedom.

Print Keynote Presenter Notes As Plain Text (Without Slides)

Found this AppleScript that takes all of your presenter notes, and pulls them into your clipboard, for easy text only paste into another file.

This is a huge life/timesaver when you want printed notes for a long presentation, since Keynote has no native way of doing this elegantly.

global presenterNotes
tell application "Keynote"
   activate
   open (choose file)
   tell front document
       set presenterNotes to presenter notes of every slide as text
           set the clipboard to presenterNotes
       do shell script "pbpaste > ~/keynote-notes.txt"
   end tell    
   quit application "Keynote"
end tell

Really proud of the work my team has been putting out lately. Telling some great stories about a great program.

“Ed Force One”     For their Somewhere Back in Time World Tour in 2008 and 2009, Iron Maiden commissioned an Astraeus Airlines Boeing 757 as transport. The aeroplane was converted into a combi configuration, which enabled it to carry the band, their crew and stage production, thereby allowing the group to perform in countries which were previously deemed unreachable logistically.

You come to understand that most people are neither for you nor against you, they are thinking about themselves. You learn that no matter how hard you try to please, some people in this world are not going to love you, a lesson that is at first troubling and then really quite relaxing.

Seeking permission involves far more variables than pretending you didn’t think there’d be an issue.

My office phone is literally covered in dust due to non-use. I also don’t know how to check my voicemail. So…in case you’re wondering how to reach me, the phone would be a poor choice.
