For most of us, knowledge of our world comes largely through sight, yet we look about with such unseeing eyes that we are partially blind. One way to open your eyes to unnoticed beauty is to ask yourself, ‘What if I had never seen this before? What if I knew I would never see it again?’Rachel Carson
The idea that meetings are ‘work’ and constitute an act of value creation, rather than performative organizational politics, seems to persist even when there is no office.Lee Bryant
Ending the data economy may seem like a radical proposition, but it’s even more extreme to have a business model whose existence depends on violating our right to privacy on a massive scale. In fact, it’s unacceptable.Carissa Véliz

Take your personal website, for example. Your writing might not appeal to others. People might find it irrelevant or even dislike your style or your message, especially if you are writing about something new and unconventional.
But if it’s important to you and if it contains a bit of yourself – and it certainly will –, whatever you write and publish on your site isn’t wrong.
You are free to try out different formats, techniques, and styles. Write about what you think and care about. Find your unique way to express yourself.
A personal website ain’t got no wrong words.Matthias Ott
