As someone that grew up watching the NBA in the 90’s, whose idols as soccer and basketball players are the guys that “play smart”, understand the game, are educated and well spoken. As a black person often accused of “playing white” this means a lot to me. + Grant Hill drinks Sprite!

HR optimization the Google way. →
I am ambivalent about google. It makes some great things and produces some of the greatest code and tech products around. At the same time they do some really dumb things like Buzz or making highly technical people managers! This makes no sense. I understand that one’s ability to solve problems through code is a sign of intelligence but management has almost nothing to do with this kind of...

Google at their best. Facebook at their best.
Very very true… I loved the fact that Google realizes the power it has and uses it in times of crisis… Twitter does it by being itself… But Facebook toppled regimes in Tunisia and Egypt, ‘nuff said. brycedotvc: A few months ago I had lunch with an old friend. As is often the case we were talking technology and, specifically, what new apps we were using. He was especially...

Hollowing out of the labor force →
So this article is interresting… I read this article it refers to but I also read this one. I want to put in my two cents… I agree that the “middle” is being hollowed out. I remember moving to Paris last year and thinking there were two kinds of jobs: those I was over-qualified for and those I was unqualified for. The jobs that I felt I could do (because I had the training...
