“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.

  1. I wasn’t able to listen to the show live, so I am not sure if you mentioned this while talking about the “reading to your children” story, but it reminded me of this story from 4 years ago. The President of France wanted to include banning homework as part of his education reform plan because it wasn’t “fair” to children who had a difficult home situation.
