Levels and Lots

Reformatted a Mac today. And all now runs smooth. Smoother. Still smoothing out how to get everything I’m somewhat used to relatively back in place. But fully accepting the new things, considering their probable utility given their inclusion in the system by hopefully the best operating system creators living today.

Caught some Will Self this evening, a nice long interview starts here. He’s a big walker. After a half year of relatively small walks, primarily the eight-minute commute to work, I kept finding myself trying to find excuses to walk longer. The new job is perhaps 30-40 minutes by foot, and it’s through the most glorious neighborhoods in town. How lovely.

Walked home from a fascinating lecture tonight on company culture. These guys defined it as a serious prerequisite to company growth and success. If your customers love your culture, they’ll be loyal and refer their friends (growth). If your employees love the culture, they’re going to recommend their smart friends to be the next hires, and just like that you’re no longer having a difficult time finding good, qualified folks (hiring is notoriously difficult for small firms).

Fascinating stuff to ponder on the return trip.

(Couldn’t help myself – these guys [from the lecture] sell boring internet infrastructure… and this is just the tip of the iceberg in making it a great place to work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNSJbaXxwt8)
