Don't Be a Jerk

Very nice (and long) article.  I liked this passage above all:

"To summarize: being a jerk is likely to fail you, at least in the long run, if it brings no spillover benefits to the group; if your professional transactions involve people you’ll have to deal with over and over again; if you stumble even once; and finally, if you lack the powerful charismatic aura of a Steve Jobs. (It’s also marginally more likely to fail you, several studies suggest, if you’re a woman.) Which is to say: being a jerk will fail most people most of the time."

There you go. Don't be a jerk!

Shame on you Brazil

Really embarrassed to be a Brazilian these days.

So many economic mistakes were made and we are now paying dearly for them. It will be a while until we get back on track...
