I’d like to dream of being like Bill Gates someday. What really stands out to me about him is his opinion on success – the importance of focusing on what you want to do and what this all means.

I’ve had a few friendly feuds about what it means to be viral. Faris Yakob says, “as the viral / spreadable discussion continues, it is important to remember that how you think about something does matter, because the metaphors we use can change how we approach things.” Meme videos spread because we decide to share them with our friends. They’re “viral,” but not the “cold” kind. Or worse, like Swine flu.
