I am a little bit cursed in that I am interested in basically everything. That means I have a difficult time focusing in on one specific topic at a time. Sometimes that’s because I see connections between disparate ideas; other times, it’s just because I find almost everything interesting and thought-provoking.
Below are my recommendations for various media – books, articles/posts, blogs, and newsletters. I’m sure this page will grow and change, but I hope you find these as interesting as I do.
