A craftsman forced his skiving tool into a piece of leather, making a shoe sole. In the next building, out of sight, a man flirted with his female servant. Somewhere, far away, an eagle cried.
The world around us is changing faster than ever, it is been like this for centuries. While some of us have been riding the speedy ride, few have been trying to remind that we do need time to reflect.
Hometown Folk is a breathing space in a busy web, reminding that we do need take a break and consider what is happening and what matters for our happiness.
Here is a note Sarah sent through PandoDigest today.
As anyone who follows me on Twitter knows, I was thoroughly delighted with David Holmes’ review of Andrew Mason’s new business rock album. We’ve had a great few days of content but — sorry everyone else including me— this post was a standout example of what I love about our team. He actually took the time to listen to the entire album and write a serious music and business criticism of it.
The core observation was how Mason really seems to think of the entrepreneurial journey in terms of making money. Maybe it’s a joke; or maybe he’s betraying the dark side of the tutelage of Eric Lefkofsky.
There were a lot of great one liners in this post. But perhaps the best was this: “The question must be raised: Is Andrew Mason fucking with us?”
