Today we spent the day at our summer place at Milde. Sometimes it's a good feeling to visit the sea in the "wrong" season. It was just dead calm and quiet. I was glad I did not go skiing.

Saying no to something is saying yes to something else - today this was equanimity.

The books I read in 2011

Pragmatic Thinking and Learning: Refactor Your Wetware, Andy Hunt read march
Probably one of the few books I can attribute a habit to; to write in the morning, either on this blog or my diary. It explains our brain and learning process in programming and computer terminology. For me in evoked a new appetite for learning, and made me aware that I really need to change some of my habits, and create some new ones to manage to stay focused. Also the first mention of "The black Swan" and the Dreyfus learning model.
"Se it, do it, teach it".

Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business,  Neil Postman, March
An analysis of how TV changed our society in one generation. My review here : "Visual stimulation is a substitute for thought".
