The Drunken Boat, by Shihan Ma. Contemplative short documentary about a man who sits on the South Bank in London as a “poet for hire”. (via The Browser)
Byrne Hobart On Finance And Culture. Interesting observations. Hobart is the author of The Diff, a well-regarded newsletter ‘covering inflection points in finance and technology.’
Creating The Time Of Your Life, a meditative look at the ‘stuff of everyday life.’
The Wires of War, a book by Jacob Helberg. “Frustrating” would be a one-word summary. Flashes of really good viewpoints, opinions and suggestions marred by hyperbole, one-sided arguments and underdeveloped and incomplete reasoning. Skip chapters 1-3, pay attention to chapters 4-6 and maybe 7 if you have the stomach for it.
Even the dogs may eat of the crumbs which fall from the rich man’s table: and in these days, when the rich in knowledge eat such specialised food at such separate tables, only the dogs have a chance of a balanced diet.
