Monica’s Poise

John Oliver’s recent show about public shaming has kicked off a discussion on whether or not the habit is socially useful. But don’t overlook the incredible interview of Monica Lewinsky starting at the 15:00 mark of his show. Her poise, thoughtfulness and overall strength is amazing. If you’re going through a tough time, watch this. Because she survived the worst kind of hell and has managed to be a good, decent person that doesn’t hate everyone, which would be a perfectly understandable response.

Chatham House

I’ve recently read about a couple different conferences that invoke Chatham House rules, where ideas and speeches can be quoted, but none of the quotes can be directly attributed. This is a fantastic concept. More conferences and meetings should employ this.
