Sam Davidson's blog

Every Tuesday, I write.

I share an idea I’ve come up with, a struggle I’m wrestling with, a puzzle I’m turning over in my head, or a story that I think the world needs to hear. You can sign up to get these emailed to you each Tuesday morning by clicking here

On Thursdays, I write at Batch about a business idea or concept, usually through the lens of my day-to-day work as co-founder and CEO or from the viewpoint and lessons learned of our purveyors. Follow along here

On LinkedIn and Twitter I often toss out quick thoughts and ideas that aren’t ready for longer posts just yet or something that I’m seeking feedback on. 

If you'd like to get more ideas like these sent to you each day, it's easy: sign up here.


 

Information World

I just finished watching Last Laugh '07 with Lewis Black, Dave Attell, and D.L. Hughley. While the three comedians used the occasion to riff on celebrities and the oddities that made the year what it was, there was a chance at the end to ask the trio about events and politics.

Someone asked about the Jena 6, and Hughley replied:

I'm never shocked when I watch what goes on in the world. If you don't know something in this country, it's because you don't want to know. Everything's available to us, so I think that goes on because people simply don't give a ****. If we did, it wouldn't happen. It really wouldn't.

Knowledge is a choice.
