Scott Orn's Links - January 27, 2012

I've been reading a lot of good stuff online recently, so thought I would put up some links:

NBA's Kenneth Faried Comes Out in Support of Gay Marriage - very cool of Kenneth. When you read the article and watch the video, you learn that he was raised by two women.

ABC Proves Keeping a Good Sitcom on is Nearly as Hard as Making It - It's that time of the year when networks cancel some of my favorite shows. Maybe I'm not part of a big enough demographic or have niche taste in television. I don't know.

This time it was "Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23," which I liked very much. I can't wait for Netflix to really get it's content machine rolling. These are the kind of shows that I want to watch and would pay a premium subscription to Netflix for. Also, maybe these producers need to get on Kickstarter/IndieGoGo and just fund the damn thing themselves.

Crossword Author Uses Puzzle to Reveal He's Dying - a little sad, but also cool in the sense that he spent his life doing this. It's neat that he can use the medium to deliver news like that. Makes what he spent his life doing feel a little more substantial.

Diver Saves Dolphin - awesome story. Great video to watch. Dolphins must know something about us that we don't know.

Reid Hoffman on Founders Hiring a Professional CEO - there are a lot of startup lessons in here. Terrific blog post by the Founder of LinkedIn.

The 25 Things I Wish I Knew When I Moved to San Francisco - Spot on recap of SF. Explains a lot about the greatest city in the world. :)
