Feed Sift

I've done this from time-to-time over the past few years, even tried to dedicate a separate blog to it in 2011, but I never quite know what to do with stuff I've read that feels worth sharing... post to Facebook? Or Google+? Or Twitter? And what if I get too many piling up? Here's a couple recent ones that I thought were worth sharing...

1: SIMPLEWASH

SimpleWash is a service that will scan your photos and news updates to what it considers to be objectionable content. I don't know if it looks at photos, or just the accompanying text. Either I'm doing pretty good or it's of limited use as the terms it found in mine were:

  • Amused by the change from "Twin Lakes Mini-Mart" to "Twin Lakes Market and >> WINE << Cellar." Outside, the only change is the sign. 
  • Name that Christmas tune: " >> HOMO << -sapiens of crystallized vapor" The >> BIG BLACK << cat is hungry. 
  • ... was given a police >> ESCORT << to the hospital ...

2: ANDREW STANTON AND STORYTELLING

Presentation Zen takes a look at a TED Talk from Pixar Studios filmmaker Andrew Stanton and breaks it down for those who'd rather get the highlights than watch the talk. Worth a skim.

3: SEATTLE ARTS SCENE

Crosscut looks at the difference between Vancouver and Seattle as far as why Seattle's got so much more of a thriving arts scene, but why Vancouver is a cautionary tale of what we need to watch out for.

4: HANDLING NEGATIVE FEEDBACK

Lifehacker looks at how to handle negative feedback. In short, it suggests asking questions that focus on finding a solution - that will help the person delivering the negative feedback to help you improve and help them see that there's hope for change.

5: NOT APPRECIATED

And Seth Godin's got a great reminder that there will always be someone who doesn't appreciate you and what to do about it.
