Type and Tunes™

I did all of my holiday shopping via the web this year. I was glad, because yesterday we decided to do a little shopping, and it was a mad house. It’s as if everyone knows the economy is tanking, and this is the last baccanalian hurrah. In any case, a couple of suggestions for those ‘hard to buy for’ folks.

Two of my friends/colleagues (Magda McHale and Bill Klingensmith) recommended the book A Whole New Mind by Dan Pink.

The Rise of Right-Brain Thinking and the New Way to Succeed
A Whole New Mind: The Rise of Right-Brain Thinking and the New Way to Succeed

I’ve been reading it over the break, and it is indeed, quite good, essentially about how we are transitioning from an information enonomy to a creative one. It’s’ a good compliment for the two books by Richard Florida.

And How It's Transforming Work, Leisure, Community, and Everyday Life
The Rise of the Creative Class: And How It’s Transforming Work, Leisure, Community, and Everyday Life

Why America Is Losing the Global Competition for Talent... and What We Can Do to Win Prosperity Back

I suggest that you check ’em out if you have a chance.

I’ve also keyed in to Sirius Satellite radio, which is well worth the investment. The range of music is fantastic. Some of my new favorites are featured on Channel 33, Chill. Check out Paper Bag (Goldfrapp), The Postal Service, and anything by Zero 7.

Also, for those of you who didn’t know, Target is now carrying Boots products, so we don’t have to catch a Virgin Atlantic flight to find our favorite products. My absolute favorite is the weekend pamper kit:

and the 5-day detox kit:

Order and enjoy.
