Creative Mornings

F*ck you, pay me...

-This is a great talk given by Mike Monteiro.  He is one of the co-founders of Mule Design, and this talk should be listened to by anyone who gets paid to do creative work. He has a book, called Design is a Job (which is fantastic, and goes into more detail than this talk).  You can listen to his podcast, 'Let's Make Mistakes' here.

-On a related note, this is a service that I'll be using in the future.  It's 'Contract Gurus', a web service that describes itself as 'An attorney will review, summarize and explain your contracts for a fraction of the cost of a traditional lawyer or law firm.'  Probably not as good as a lawyer, but much cheaper.  I have yet to use it, but once I do I'll be sure to let you know my experience with it.  God knows I've signed several contracts without thoroughly reading/understanding every line.
