#QOTD: What is your favorite restaurant right this second?

00:39 – Which hurts your credibility more: having no popularity or faking your popularity? Thoughts on fake views, plays, etc?
01:36 – Would you ever automate your position, delegate to as many people as it takes and spend 95% of your time to fully engage in family and life?
02:58 – When you get the occasional rushes of inspiration and motivation and it disappears, how do you get constant motivation?
07:03 – Why is your phone always in the shot?
07:51 – What are your thoughts on tech consumption by young children?

What I think of complaining –…
Get Resy –

If you were to go back to a caveman and ask him what he thinks of our media consumption today, he would reject it. it would be weird and unnatural. But the fact of the matter is that it’s where we are today, and technology is just a part of our world. I’m not the dad who is going to tell my kids to “get off the computer and go play!” Frankly our kids are already eating a hell of a lot better than we ever did at that age.

Kids are just growing up to be different characters than we are. Information is a commodity, so they’re not going to be as “fact-smart” as we were, but they’re going to be much more intuitive about learning how to use new systems.

Sure I’m worried about them being active enough, but if you’re a good parent you can make your kids do literally whatever you want. What I’m *not* going to do, though, is restrict Xander’s time on the iPad.
