Percolate co-founder James Gross talks social scale at #PercoCS
This summit was amazing today. So crazy all the things Percolate is doing. Really firing on all cylinders. Amazing to watch a company mature so fast.
My cover has been blown.
ZOMG ZOMG ZOMG ZOMG
I find it astounding that so many people think “young people these days” are apathetic or stupid or lazy or whatever when EVERY SINGLE GENERATION EVER has said the exact same thing about the generation that came after it.
Maybe they’re just a little bit different from you…building and connecting and affecting change in different ways. Maybe you’re basing your assessment on the one kid who smashed your pumpkin and not the 100 million who didn’t. Maybe the fact that you can’t see past your nose says more about you than about the people you think you’re looking at.
The Boomers broke the world. My generation, Gen X, sat and moped about it. The millennials want to fix it. Also, the first millennials are like 30 now. They’re not kids anymore.

The effects on real estate value alone could be devastating, Mr. Strauss said. His research shows that there is about $156 billion worth of property, and 300,000 homes, on 2,120 square miles of land that is less than three feet above the high tide line in Florida.
At that same level, Mr. Strauss said, Florida has 2,555 miles of road, 35 public schools, one power plant and 966 sites listed by the Environmental Protection Agency, such as hazardous waste dumps and sewage plants.
The amount of real estate value, and the number of properties potentially affected, rises incrementally with each inch of sea-level rise, he said.
Professor Wanless insists that no amount of engineering proposals will stop the onslaught of the seas. “At two to three feet, we start to lose everything,” he said.”
Florida is wholly and truly screwed.

I get pretty excited about little things that make my life easier. One of those annoying remnants of the 20th Century is carrying around your insurance card in your wallet. So, launching early next week…all you have to do is log in to Sherpaa to view your insurance card with all the details you’d need about your health insurance in nice and friendly, understandable language.
It’s the little big things that make me happy. I do have to say it’s the most beautiful insurance card I’ve ever seen.
This is awesome.
Hit the 50th state in 1996. Hit my last province in 1999.
It’s a lot less hard when you get Alaska, Hawaii, the Yukon and Northwest Territories out of the way before you’re 5.
A revolutionary, game-changing social network for the tragically apathetic.
Someone reblogged this tonight. From.. 3? 4 years ago? Takes me back.

Antilock breaks, solar power, airplanes, intermittent wipers, penicillin….
Oh my god he’s totally right. THEY HAVE ALL TRULY DISAPPEARED.
