Aug'17 Summer, Reading, Podcast, Coding  

It’s summahhh time…. We are working, we swear. In fact, we’re exercising our brains, brushing up on all things startup, VC, AI, VR, and MENA. Here’s our August Index of things we’re focused on, prepping for September. That’s right, back to school is around the corner. And we are so going to ace class this year.

Diversity

Notes on a Foreign Country - An American Abroad in a Post-American World by Suzy Hansen – In 2007, Suzy Hansen packed her bags for Istanbul. Turkey was booming. In the 10 years that she’s lived there things have changed, including the standing of her own country, the United States. Notes on a Foreign Country is as much a look at Turkey, Egypt, and Iran as it is about the decline of America. Hansen asks: Who do we become if we don’t become American? Okay, so it’s not startup or business. Trust us, it’s worthwhile.

Game of Thrones, pshhhh…. Puh-lease. We’re all about Wonder Woman. Okay, the accents have to go. Bring on the girl power. 

 

The power of time off – #forrealz – Digital detox. Silent retreat. Take time for you.

 

How’s your jump shot? Malcolm Gladwell’s podcast Revisionist History is a must listen every week. We are obsessed with this episode that looks at the best and worst shooters in basketball. 

 

Music down under (we’re not ALL work..) Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu was a blind Aboriginal musician. And what a musician. That voice. He sang in his native Yolngu language. It’s a good reminder to get out of your bubble and explore, including tunes.
