Thursday Links

  • Kottke watches Primer, the Grand Jury winner at the Sundance Festival in 2004:
    "In Primer, the main characters find themselves in a situation where they can (almost) literally do anything they want with their lives. But instead of opening their lives up to an infinite range of possibilities, they find themselves constrained by their circumstances."

    I'm going to add this movie to my queue at Blockbuster -- if they have it.
  • Steve Job's turn to do a commencement address, this time for the students at Stanford.

    I didn't cry when I read this one, however, Jobs is a lucky guy!

    We have to take these words:
    "Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."

    to heart!
