Linky Goodness – 3/20/2012

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

It’s been a while since I’ve put up some linky goodness. I’ve been sharing links on my Twitter account but not here on the site, so I have quite the backlog. Let’s rock.

Netflix’s culture
This is a couple of years old, but still worth reviewing for anyone working for or leading fast-paced companies.

“Personhood” screws up birthdays
“[T]he legal drinking age here in Pennsylvania is 21. That age is calculated from one’s birthday, of course. So are all the other legal milestone ages, such as 16 (learner’s permit), 17 (driver’s license), 18 (voting and draft registration), 25 (renting a car) and 30 (running for the U.S. Senate). You reach each of those milestone ages on your birthday — the annual anniversary of the day of your birth, which is how we measure a person’s age. But with several states now considering “personhood” amendments to their constitutions, these laws will need to be changed. And so will the cultural significance of birthdays.”

Too bad this wasn’t in effect a couple of years ago. I would have gotten a tax deduction for Lucy a year earlier.

I’ve been watching the Patriots’ free agents moves closely over the past week. PFT is one of the best places on the web for following the minute-by-minute moves. The PFT page on Serendeputy is my highest ranking tag.
