Association by Seth Godin

Great advice by Seth Godin.

Association:
Who you hang out with determines what you dream about and what you collide with.
And the collisions and the dreams lead to your changes.
And the changes are what you become.
Change the outcome by changing your circle.

Victoria Justice in Fun Size | Trailer & Movie Site | October 26!

My buddy Max Werner wrote the script for this movie, Fun Size. Max is one of the funniest people I've ever met. He's currently a writer on Colbert and occasionally guest stars as Stephen's "asshole lawyer." Hope you can make it to the theater to see Fun Size.

Ben's Friends Patient Support Networks - New Traffic Highs

Big day today for Ben's Friends Patient Support Networks, we're now hitting all-time traffic highs again. The summer is always a little slow for us. When the weather turns a little, people spend more time connecting online.

It's really rewarding to watch how much and how fast the sites have grown. Stay tuned for more!

SPARTA POINT: Make your room like a cave

Interesting article by my friend and doctor, Phil Wagner.

"At Sparta we tell our athletes to make their rooms like a cave; cold, dark, and quiet. At first, it was just the theory that our ancestors slumbered in a similar environment. After all, since our nutrition should be focusing on the primal nutrients found in protein and vegetables (seeSpartaPoint 4/14/10), an approach known as the Paleo Diet, shouldn't our sleep mimic the same philosophy?

Recent research has actually supported these cave recommendations, particularly the most important aspect, darkness. A 2010 study out of Ohio State University examined the effects of nighttime light exposure on mice. Despite equal caloric intake and daily activity, the rodents exposed to light at night had significantly greater weight gain. This weight gain was attributed mostly to a larger percentage of food consumption at night. In the nighttime light exposure group, more than half of the day's intake actually occurred late in the evening!"

This forgotten Vermeer has been floating around for a few months but I just saw it. Love it:

Anyone know who did this? I spent a few minutes trying to find out but got dead-ended in a Tumblr/Imgur attribution black hole. (via ★ryanvlower)

Update: The creator of the image is supposedly Mitchell Grafton, although I couldn't find any airtight attribution. (thx, all)

"If I had to choose between two guys: one who makes $250,000 per year and was just "ok" looking, and the other who makes around $60,000 per year but was "hot", I'd choose the guy with the cash."

Study of the Day: Why Crowded Coffee Shops Fire Up Your Creativity - Hans Villarica - The Atlantic

Scientific proof that we do our best work in coffee shops. I know I do. :)

Study of the Day: Why Crowded Coffee Shops Fire Up Your Creativity - Hans Villarica - The Atlantic:

"The next time you're stumped on a creative challenge, head to a bustling coffee shop, not the library. As the researchers write in their paper, "[I]nstead of burying oneself in a quiet room trying to figure out a solution, walking out of one's comfort zone and getting into a relatively noisy environment may trigger the brain to think abstractly, and thus generate creative ideas.""

Clay Shirky: How the Internet will (one day) transform government | Video on TED.com

Awesome video from Clay Shirky. He's the best. I try to read everything he writes.

btw - because the iPhone 5 has such great wireless speed, I was able to stream this on my way to work. Pretty cool. I'm going to start listening to way more Ted Talks that way.
