"Money is like gas in the car — you need to pay attention or you’ll end up on the side of the road — but a well-lived life is not a tour of gas stations" Tim O'Reilly
This is a great short interview with Tim O'Reilly. Well worth eleven minutes of your time. I've long liked his 'clothesline paradox', the idea of creating more value than you take out, and his principles around working on stuff that matters.
I met the guys behind The Renegade Economist last year. They're asking some pretty big questions about the economic and politcal systems of which we're all a part and have created some fascinating resources including a series of interviews with people like Noam Chomsky and Camilla Batmanghelidj, and an award-winning feature documentary called The Four Horseman, a film that "…rather than just condemning bankers, politicians or the media…puts the entire system up for discussion". And why not?
