Jeff Nolan's take on innovation, entrepreneurship, tech and stuff that interests me
Interesting look at the notion of a scientific process to business success, as espoused by a popular book of the same name. It’s worth reading the review if you are interested, as I am right now, about how to better manage people, however there is a concluding paragraph that captured some wisdom we all need [...]
9/11 Truthers piss me off. Really. Recently, Rosie Oâ€™Donnell, a co-host of ABC talk show The View, made comments on the show that renewed controversy over the collapse of World Trade Center 7. These are the same people that criticize people who don’t hold their views for “ignoring the science” when they themselves do exactly [...]
“The goal was to produce a simple, sturdy, easily-maintained, multi-functional, modular vehicle that was truly international.” Apparently the other goal of the OScar project was also to create a car that makes you feel like a complete frickin dork. Guess it was too much work to make it look like this?
I love anonymous satire blogs written by people inside the bowls of the industries they reveal their frustrations about.

Okay, this is getting a little out of hand… 3 clean tech posts on the very first day the category debuts! This one is pretty damn cool, even though I’m not exactly sure why.

It’s a two-fer tonight for the newly created "Clean Tech" category. This time we revisit the ban-light-bulbs movement that is still circulating in California and elseware. It turns out that the free market (and Wal Mart’s ability to sell a lot of CFLs) really is capable of responding more effectively than government regulation. The free [...]
Unfortunately for them, their ultimate â€˜green carâ€™ is the source of some of the worst pollution in North America; it takes more combined energy per Prius to produce than a Hummer. Here’s an interesting take on environmental toll of the Toyota Prius, which will no doubt spur a rather vitriolic comment thread. BTW, in honor [...]

"Because material on a website may be viewed across the Internet, and thus in more than one state at a time, permitting the reach of any particular state’s definition of intellectual property to dictate the contours of this federal immunity would be contrary to Congress’s expressed goal of insulating the development of the Internet from [...]
Google Notebook has made it out of beta. I actually use this service probably at least once a day and really like it. I do wish there was an offline sync’ing capability because I would like to have access to this data when I’m not online, and sync’ed to my Blackberry as well. Sounds like [...]
