I love the original Connections series. To me it's aged extremely well. The way Burke traces the connection between historical events down through time (for example from the invention of money in ancient times to the the advent of the lateen sail in the Middle Ages to the nuclear bomb in modern times) is so entertaining and so instructive in regard to human actions and unintended consequences.Another thing I like how he puts inventions and ideas into context and shows...
^ damn guy are you Tony Robbins? Anyway, I was in a similar situation once. Really, what are your options? Sabotage the new guy? Go into overdrive kiss-ass mode? Or just do your job well and be personable? For me the least unpalatable was option number three. It worked out fine.

I switched to this a while back. Really helped be write more neatly. There are a few books on it, but this website is actually much better than any of them that I've encountered: http://briem.net/
^Pretty much second what he said, with a few additions. The South Austin neighborhoods are definitely where it's at for proximity to restaurants and food. But it's kinda pricey down there and overrun with hipsters. Same with the east side, like he mentioned. But "Slowly getting safer" is a little misleading. It's safe. People aren't getting shot constantly down there or anything. And lots of new cool new restaurants and bars are popping up over there. I lived in south...
Oh ok, makes sense. Thanks.
