Until next week,
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?

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.
I’ve really been enjoying How I Built This from NPR.
That’s it for this week. Until next time.
