We're happy to welcome back Jimmy
as a Boing Boing guestblogger. He's a senior editor at Harvard Business Review
; he's written plenty
of books and produced lots of records, too.
had him here before; you can see his earlier posts here
and here. Last time, Jimmy covered everything from how Garth Hudson defeats gravity to the
physics behind flying sharks who can destroy airplanes.
This time we hope he'll blog more about his day job. Some of the other
topics Jimmy says are on his mind these days: lessons learned from
curating a TEDx, the pros and
cons of six
discs of Darkness, why Machiavelli seems to be
everywhere, what he learned on his Canadian vacation, why divorce attorneys are naming
their firms after defunct rock bands, the mysteries of Scott Prior's
paintings, and a secret about the great bluesman Robert Johnson.
Welcome aboard again, Jimmy!

If you’ve been blessed enough to avoid them yourself, you’ve definitely heard the horror stories. Late night, crushing out a ton of work, writing, coding, anything, then boom – your computer crashes. The battery blows, you spill water or coffee all over the place, or it just shuts down with no explanation, and you’re screwed. […]
You travel around a lot. It might be that jet set life from New York to LA to London to Tokyo, or it might be back and forth from the coffee shop to the office, or from the kitchen to the couch. Any which way, you’re mobile and that’s the way to live. When you […]
