Monthly Art #41

This is a monthly “newsletter”, containing a list of what I enjoyed the most last month. Whether it was a full length movie, short film, music album, book or even a painting.

What I am watching

  • PIONEERS: Gregory Chaitin: Against Method

“Against Method is an episode of the Pioneers series, the unique documentary film project devoted to the most unorthodox contemporary thinkers who challenge current paradigms and go against the publish or perish decree”

  • Josh Waitzkin How to Cram 2 Months of Learning into 1 Day | The Tim Ferriss Show

Although I didn’t like his book that much, this interview strikes the right balance between Josh’s life stories and advices.

  • Scott Galloway Says Amazon, Apple, Facebook, And Google should be broken up

With Facebook announcing Libra, tech giants seem to continue their path to world domination. Some people like Scott Galloway call to action now before it’s too late.

What I am reading

I love books. Not of all of them. While a few do enrich you with a desired knowledge, they still suck as information medium. But we’re still reading them. It’s like using a carriage when you have the tech to build Tesla. Maybe some form will emerge in the near future taking advantage of bleeding edge AR? We’ll see

“The Bay Area is unusually dense with idea-driven subcultures that mix and cross-pollinate in fascinating ways, many of which are already enriching rationalist culture.”

So long
