Khan explains SOPA and PIPA.

I’m forever wanting something new. Something I’ve never seen before, that no one else has. Something that will be both an extension and expression of my person. Something that will take me away from the world I actually live in and let me immerse myself in another. Something that will let me see more details, take better pictures, do more at once, work smarter, run faster, live longer.

Anonymous asked: why has the "When it Drops" site eliminated the new books section?

Unfortunately we’re having problems with the book feed. We hope to have it fixed soon! Sorry for the inconvenience!

Dropbox is one reason I now have a strict rule to only invest in teams. There are other examples of companies I missed and other examples of the converse - companies where I invested in mediocre people chasing a great idea and the company failed - but Dropbox is emblematic to me as to why you should always invest in people over ideas.
Dropbox and why you should invest in people
At Google we strongly believe in innovation and are proud of our search quality. We’ve invested thousands of person-years into developing our search algorithms because we want our users to get the right answer every time they search, and that’s not easy. We look forward to competing with genuinely new search algorithms out there—algorithms built on core innovation, and not on recycled search results from a competitor. So to all the users out there looking for the most authentic, relevant search results, we encourage you to come directly to Google.

Don’t worry about what others think about you. Take your light and make it shine bright and overpower their darkness. It is in you! Shine bright.

When It Drops? Today!
After almost a year of on-again-off-again development, I’m really excited to announce When It Drops! Now you can easily find what new movies, music, DVDs, games, and books are coming out each week. Ryan Sims came up with the original concept and did a smashing job on the design. Special thanks to Noah Stokes who has not only been doing a great job as our one and only user, but also for getting the ball rolling on this. Finally, you can also follow us on Tumblr if that’s more your thing!

Steve Jobs’ vision for Apple, repeated in yesterday’s keynote address, posits that the company operates at the intersection between technology and the liberal arts. I think it’s reasonable to regard fine typography as falling within that mandate, but unfortunately, they are falling short of that promise. Building a great display for typography without building great typographic tools is a dereliction of duty.
