Months ago, I compiled all of Tynan's blog posts into a Kindle friendly mobi file so I could read on the go. It was also an interesting project to sharpen my PHP skills. Tynan gave his blessing so I present to you the entire Tynan archives.
Tynan Blog Mobi with Images (~21 megabytes)
Tynan Blog Mobi without Images (1.6 megabytes)
Note, the ebook only goes up to February/March 2012 since that's when I my program. Since the website is using SETT now rather than Wordpress, I can't make it an updated one.
I also have a few others like Tim Ferriss and Sebastian Marshall (it's been months and i'm still reading his posts). Let me know if you guys are interested or know of any other great authors.
Wow, this is great! I would also be interested in the compilation of Sebastian's blog!
Hmm, I've been getting multiple requests for Sebastian's blog. I wanted to get his input first, and he replied with a cryptic, mixed response. I actually forgot I already put it up on my blog back in January though so I guess it won't hurt. This one only goes up to Jan 2012 and doesn't have images (but then again most of his posts don't anyway.) As always, visit his blog for the good stuff.
In the mean time, I've been working slowly on a Python port that would work on any blog but it's a bit difficult since every blog is slightly different.
You, sir, are the man. This will be much easier than trudging through blog posts only when online and in front of a laptop. This is invaluable, and would be triply so if you did the same with sebastian and tim.
I'd be interested in this as well. I've been thinking about doing this for Ryan Holiday's (as well as Tynan's and some others I really enjoy) blog & found blogbooker.com
When Todd and I arrived in Panama the second time, we couldn't find a decent apartment to rent. Prices had gone up by 50% since the last time we visited, and it was Carnaval Season, which crushed availability. So we stayed in a hostel. The location was great, our room was decent enough, but to call the internet sporadic would be too kind of a compliment. We couldn't find any coffee shops that had wifi, so we ended up paying by the minute in an overly air conditioned "cybercafe" which boasted amenities like plastic patio chairs and a guy next to us browsing hardcore gay pornography all day.
If I knew then what I know now, and what I'm about to share with you, I wouldn't have had that problem. It turns out that there's a company which caters to businesses by offering office space all over the world. And I mean everywhere. I first found out about this in Toronto, searched for the closest location, and it was half a block away from where I was staying. In San Francisco you can stand at one location and see another one a block away.
The company is called Regus. I'd heard about them before, because I know that they contract with American Express for the Platinum Business card, but I assumed their services were so expensive that I wouldn't consider a membership. And that's kind of true-if you want your own office, it's definitely expense-account priced. But they also have a "Business Lounge" program, which gives you access to a common area with comfortable seating, wifi, snacks, tea, and coffee, in any of their 1100 locations. The price for a worldwide membership is only $49 per month, which is cheap enough that I would consider buying it, and would definitely buy it if I was traveling constantly.
I'm not much of a blog reader, but there are 3 blogs that I follow heavily: Tynan, Seth Godin, and Steve Pavlina. If you're looking for some good reading, you found my blog - good work. If you're looking for more than just me, check these guys out.
For those of you who don't know, Tynan is co-founder of SETT, the blogging platform I'm using now. He's also the reason I'm interested in blogging, and one of my main sources of motivation when I'm feeling unproductive. I have a few projects right now that deserve more attention than I usually give them, and reading Tynan's posts usually have the effect of making me more productive. If I had to categorize his posts, I'd say he writes about how to live life in an optimal way. I believe there is a very narrow group of people that share his philosophies, and that's who he writes for. I happen to be one of those people, so if you find yourself enjoying my blog, I'd suggest you check his out (it's way better).
