I haven’t shared much in the last few weeks, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy.
Currently getting through The Undoing Project, which will lead to start Thinking Fast and Slow over again (I was only about 50 pages in before getting distracted over a year ago.) I got distracted from reading a book about the surveillance state from Bruce Schneier.
I bought a book about how GPS is changing our lives and another book from Kevin Kelly about 12 technological forces that are shaping the future.
After reading an article about Seal Team 6 and war crimes accusations at The Intercept, I wanted to know what fonts were used on the site. I came across FontsInUse.com This is the kind of site that could keep me busy for hours. (And the font is called TI Actu.)
I published a couple of articles on Medium and they got picked up by various publications there, resulting in some good traffic. The best part—better than page views—is to see what parts of an article people have highlighted.
I joined a co-working space called WeWork in Montreal and promptly scored a contract where I proof-read a Chinese to English translation of web content for a financial services firm.
I figured out how to get really high skills scores in Forza Horizon 3. It involves ripping donuts in a palm tree plantation with lots of fences nearby to chain scores together.
My car of choice right now is a 2017 Ford GT Supercar.
