One of the best quotes from Steve Jobs, about seeing things differently

2 Dec

When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and you’re life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family, have fun, save a little money.

That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.

Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.

Steve Jobs Refused a Potentially Life-Saving Surgery for 9 months #teechy

21 Oct

Walter Isaacson, the author of the upcoming official Steve Jobs biography, told 60 minutes that Steve Jobs refused what could have potentially been a life-saving surgery. Remember, though Jobs had pancreatic cancer, he also had a very rare form that was treatable through surgery. Jobs didn’t want that surgery.

 

Isaacson, who had numerous conversations with Jobs, says:

“I think that he kind of felt that if you ignore something, if you don’t want something to exist, you can have magical thinking…we talked about this a lot. He wanted to talk about it, how he regretted it….I think he felt he should have been operated on sooner.”

Amazing lifehack: Turn a soda bottle into a solar light via H2O + bleach

9 Oct

This is an amazing way to harness light from the sun, especially in poor and developing communities. Props to this man for being innovative.

1) Get a soda bottle

2) Fill it up with filtered H2O and a little bleach (to kill bacteria/fungi)

3) Cut a hole in the top of your tin roof (house, garden shed, or any place with no light)

4) Seal it in and use the sun’s light to artificially produce a lamp. No electricity or money needed.

Brilliant.
