“Trying to ‘Boil the Ocean’ & Other Worthwhile Pursuits,” Today at 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT)

In an interview about his battle with Gawker, Peter Thiel said he wouldn’t fight Gawker if it wasn’t unique–that he wouldn’t “try to boil the ocean.” Is that the right approach? Why not try to “boil the ocean”? This and more on today’s show. See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., I plan to discuss.
