Tech Newsletter: Issue 2

Welcome to the second issue of my newsletter.  While I’m not restricting the content I include in the newsletter to a single topic I have been focused on AI, machine learning, and bots recently so you can expect those themes to be a bit more prevalent.  What topics are you most interested in?

📚 Books 
I’ve been slacking in my reading recently.  After I came across “The Need to Read” I decided I was going to get back into the habit of regularly reading.  As such I picked up Designing Your Life: How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life.  I’m only a few chapters in but I’m really enjoying it thus far.

🎧 Podcasts 
I’ve really been enjoying How I Built This from NPR.

That’s it for this week.  Until next time.
