People & things that I am paying attention to:


Andy Stanley

Andy Stanley

Senior Pastor and founder of North Point Community Church, the second largest congregation in the country, and author of 15 books. If you live in the Atlanta metro area, please checkout northpoint.


Rob Bell

Rob Bell

I read Velvet Elvis: Repainting the Christian Faith a while back and I was absolutely blown away by his knowledge of the history of the first centry, and of Jewdism at that time as well. Later I read Jesus Wants to Save Christians: A Manifesto for the Church in Exile, and then more recently he published Love Wins: A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived. I would very much recommend you checking this one out. If you are anything like me it will challange you. But, I believe that is a good thing. You will either walk away with new ideas, or a better understanding of your current beliefs.


No Agenda Podcast

No Agenda Podcast

Self styled "media assassins", Adam Cury and John C. Dvorak have an 1.5 to 2 hour conversation, twice a week chocked full of interesting information.

Gary Taubes

Gary Taubes

Author of Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It (Borzoi Books) (see my post about it here). Also author of Good Calories, Bad Calories: Fats, Carbs, and the Controversial Science of Diet and Health (Vintage), I read his book 'Why We get Fat' and it blew my mind. Just being cognisant of the way the human body metabolizes food makes you change your eating habits radically. I lost about 30 pounds in about 4 months, just by making some simple changes.

BitCoin

BitCoin

Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer crypto currency. Peer-to-peer means that no central authority issues new money or tracks transactions. These tasks are managed collectively by the network.

Scott Adams

Scott Adams

Creator of the brilliant Dilbert comic strip, Adams is also the author of several non-comic books, as well as a frequently updated blog, which I enjoy immensely (even more than the comic). Check it out!

Dan Ariely

Dan Ariely

A behavioral economics, Dan Ariely is author of Predictably Irrational, Revised and Expanded Edition: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions as well as The Upside of Irrationality: The Unexpected Benefits of Defying Logic at Work and at Home. Both are fascinating reads.
