Do Things that Don't Scale

This is excellent advice for new companies and startups.  Not everything you build at first needs to be scalable.  Some things just need to do the job.  If you grow out of its capabilities, you can always building something new to replace it.

IPS – Bill Seeks to Halt Bee-Killing Pesticides in U.S. | Inter Press Service

IPS – Bill Seeks to Halt Bee-Killing Pesticides in U.S. | Inter Press Service | Science, Technology & Education | Scoop.it
Bill Seeks to Halt Bee-Killing Pesticides in U.S. - Two Congressional Democrats have co-sponsored new legislation called the Save America’s Pollinators Act of 2013 to take emergency action to save the remaining bees in the U.S., and in turn, the U.S.
Patrick Ciriello's insight:

The European Union has already imposed a two-year moratorium on several types of neonicotinoids, after the European Food Safety Authority found in January 2013 that certain neonicotinoids were threatening Europe’s bee populations.

 

In May 2013, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a joint study noting that, “Acute and sublethal effects of pesticides on honey bees have been increasingly documented, and are a primary concern.”

 

The proposed legislation, by Rep. John Conyers and Rep. Earl Blumenauer, would require the EPA to suspend the use of at least four neonicotinoids, including imidacloprid, clothianidin, thiamethoxam, and dinotafuran.

Whether you work at a place that blocks a bunch of web sites, or you can't access a page because it's behind a paywall, tech blog Digital Inspiration shows you how to use a couple Google proxy servers to get around those restrictions.
Patrick Ciriello's insight:

I do NOT endorse using this as a means of bypassing corporate security measures, especially in areas where financial, medical, and other sensitive information are used.

 

However, sometimes an overzealous ISP or other non-authoritative entity will make it difficult to get to certain sites.  This may prove to a quick, though most likely temporary, solution.
