In this year’s Reith Lectures musician and conductor Daniel Barenboim discusses the interplay between music and society.

Just started listening to this.

If you haven’t listened to the 2003 lecture on the mind, you need to.

Please join us, for dinner:

Do you have a stack of books, journals, manuals, articles, API docs, and blog printouts that you think you’ll get to? That you think you need to read? Now, based on past experience, what are the odds you’ll get to all of it? Half of it? Any of it? (except for maybe the Wired magazine)

You can’t keep up. There is no way. And trying to keep up will probably just make you dumber.You can never be current on everything you think you should be.
You can’t simultaneously be current on:

Current events
Pop culture
Professional practices
Health/fitness/diet trends
And on and on and on…
