How to Write a Book
> Don't write a book. Even better, stop thinking about writing a book. Your endless internal debate and self-conjured guilt about that book you haven't written yet is a sensational waste of your time. My guess is if you took all the time that you've spent considering writing a book and translated that into actual writing time, you'd be a quarter of your way into writing that book you're not writing.

The Deck, Adieu
> In 11 years, Jim and I never had anything more than a virtual handshake through Messages (nee iChat) as a "contract". They say don't do business with friends. My experience says otherwise -- if you have the right friends.

Why Clarence Thomas Uses Simple Words in His Opinions - Conor Friedersdorf - The Atlantic
"What I tell my law clerks is that we write these so that they are accessible to regular people. That doesn't mean that there's no law in it. But there are simple ways to put important things in language that's accessible. As I say to them, the beauty, the genius is not to write a 5 cent idea in a ten dollar sentence. It's to put a ten dollar idea in a 5 cent sentence."

Daring Fireball: Obsession Times Voice
Gruber's overview of the talk that he gave at SXSW with Merlin Mann. I actually attended this talk and it's worth both reading and listening to the Podcast. Very informative and funny to boot.
