Seven Links Every Sunday

We're back in business with another Seven Links Every Sunday. If you missed Six Saturday Links, check them out.

Urban Sitter: Digital Adventures in Babysitting - CNN interviewing my friend and Urban Sitter co-founder, Andrea Barrett. So proud of her and Scott Fausel for all their fine work building a great company.

Hate Map - This map shows concentrations of Hate Speech on Twitter. Kind of a bummer, but interesting nonetheless.

Carbon Dioxide Passes Long Feared Milestone - This feels like a big deal.

Makin' Sense Babe Announcement and Video - This is what following your passion looks like. The Makin' Sense Babe quit her job in Asset Management after 13 years. Good for her and good for the next reader who follows her lead.

No Armed Bandit by 99% Invisible - "Americans now spend more money on slot machines than movies, baseball, and theme parks combined." Feels like the world has gotten more speculative. The stock market, housing market, gambling, etc. Hopefully this is just a collective phase we're all going through.

Netflix and Reed Hastings Join Silicon Valley's Elite - Fantastic article with so many great stories. Netflix has been in trouble so many times and it always comes out stronger than before. Full Disclosure: I own some Netflix stock. Bonus Link: AOL vs. Netflix, the Internet in one chart.

I'll leave you with a video, Positive Compilation of Russian Dash Cams. This is really heart warming.
