Total disclosure: if I wasn‘t in my phone so much, I would be much more productive in life and I could get back to my original love, READING. My brain hurts with so much screen time. Its time to break up with the phone (social media).

A powerful set of sci-if short stories, specifically collected from indigenous, queer-identifying authors. They all round an end theme of “…. But what if we tried really f*cking hard to work together” and I can‘t get enough. So much challenge of worldly thinking and cultural norms!

Wow, this is PACKED. Such a fascinating read (listen), with a final hour filled with a brief “But how do we do this?”

Love it. (Might have been dense in a text-only format)

Great, fascinating book about current events at the intersection of global politics and cyberwar/cybersecurity. If you liked Countdown to Zero Day, you‘ll like this.

Wow! If you want to know why everyone got really scared about cybersecurity about a month ago read this book. I‘m going to have to read it again just to make sure I caught everything. #20in4 book 2 of 3

Andrew65 Sounds great, well done 👏👏👏 9mo

There's an old expression on Wall Street. 'When the ducks quack, feed them.' Have you heard of that? Back in the nineties investors wanted to buy anything with dotcom at the end of the name. So that's what we gave them. Our job isn't to talk people out of buying. Our job is to make what people want. Our job is to feed the ducks. And right now [2012-13], the ducks are hungry.

Success is making those who believed in you look brilliant.

I actually got this book from the library because I thought it was about SEO, and since I‘m trying to provide more SEO services this year, I thought it would be a good book for me to read.

Turns out it‘s not at all about SEO, but about how Google was founded and run as a company. Since the book is almost a decade old, I‘m not sure how much of it still applies, but I was surprised at how funny and engaging the writing was. I‘m so glad I read it!
