The Door I'm opening now in my life is called The Constant Student Community. It is an online learning community to help people discover what they love doing — whether it's a traditional career, creative side project or full-blown startup. To be clear, this is a business I've co-founded and

Google is good at predicting the weather for the next hour.   It is ok at predicting the weather for the next eight hours.   It is touch-and-go when it comes to predicting tomorrow's weather.   Google sucks at predicting the weather one week from now.   Simple, Complicated, Complex   A wheel is a simple system.
