- Foundation and Empire by Isaac Asimov
- Second Foundation by Isaac Asimov
Any book, which is at all important, should be immediately re-read
- How to Start a Startup – I’m about halfway through the 20 lectures and loving it. So far, Kevin Hale’s lecture was one of my favorites
- Run a 6-minute mile – it had been a while since I was able to do this and it took some time to get it back but I’m happy I did. Probably won’t keep it up though…

- Why Decentralization Matters by Chris Dixon
- How to Live Like a Hydra – setting your life up to be anti-fragile
- Chaos Monkey – Netflix’s system architecture attacks itself to become more anti-fragile over time
- Growth Without Goals – great article by Patrick O’Shaughnessy describing why systems are better than goals, why exploration without expectation is the right mindset and how to best cultiave these things in yourself
- Derek Paravicini – autistic savant who can remember and play tens of thousands of songs in different keys, styles, etc.
- The Tyranny of Convenience – excellent article on how powerful but underestimated a force convenience is and how it can (does) enslave us
