Link roundup

1. "the best test of what people really want to do is what they are actually doing."

2. "Coastal Commission bans captive orca breeding at SeaWorld San Diego"

SeaWorld officials opposed the condition barring breeding, saying it would mean that the park’s population of 11 whales would be the last orcas held in the park.
3. "Humble Bundle has laid off 12 people — about 20 percent of its staff — in a move that the company's CEO admitted reflected overly eager expansion."
Humble Indie Bundle 15 has so far sold 137,000 units, with less than a day to go before the offer's expiry. The last two bundles both sold more than 160,000 copies, according to a list on Wikipedia. Sales of the Indie Bundle have been diminishing. Humble Indie Bundle 9, released in September, 2013, sold 713,000 bundles. Indie Bundles have generally sold more than 300,000 copies each, stretching back to the earliest days of the packages, in 2011.
(Other than the Android sales, I buy pretty much every bundle.)
