The Back Nine are stories and videos and stuff I uncovered this week that I enjoyed and felt were worth sharing for your weekend reading.
I Used To Believe – I Used To Believe is a funny and bizarre collection of ideas that adults thought were true when they were children, and yes, it is as awesome as it sounds.
Every Bad Presentation Ever – Priceless, smarmy, self-aware little video the pretty much covers every bad speaker and audience cliche in a couple minutes.
Kindle Store for iPad – Apple made Amazon take the link to their store out of their iPad app. Here’s a website-based, beautifully styled app you can open via Safari on your iPad, then add the bookmark to the homepage. Love it.
How to Create a Social Media Calendar – Lisa Buyer over at Search Engine Watch provides a great primer to get more organized and get more done.
The Case For A 21-Hour Work Week – Michael Coren makes a thought-provoking argument about happiness and sustainability over at Fast Company’s Co.Exist.
The Fragile Teenage Brain – An in-depth look at concussions in high school football – which my son is never playing – by Jonah Lehrer over at Grantland.
The first thing you do when you sit down at the computer – Seth Godin. A short, sweet bucket of yep.
It’s Just Stuff – Love this. By the lovely and talented Shawn Blanc. I love talking and writing about tools and toys as well, but at the end of the day …
Ten Things Everyone Should Know About Time – Sean Carroll over at Discover Magazine files his lightbulbs from a multidisciplinary conference on the nature of time. Freakin’ cool.

We saw that one!
Apparently I’m not the only one who believed that when I was little!
I am currently doing social media marketing and it is great if I could get some advice on when is the best schedules I can do them together with my other marketing strategies. I am interested in learning the social calendar very much. Thank you for sharing.
I love your selection of books and videos. I am really interested in “I used to believe”. I think it will make me remember on my aspirations as a kid.
