Thank you Kottke for surfacing this fascinating piece on raising children in a gender-neutral way. Thought provoking.
This speech by Valarie Kaur made me weep a few months ago while walking through a Brooklyn park. Listen to the very end. It’s powerful. So very powerful.
I am beyond thrilled and honored that Valarie is our guest at CreativeMornings/NYC this Thursday, November 19th.
I wish everyone on this planet would read her book See No Stranger – A memoir and manifesto of revolutionary love.
I am humbled I’ll get to be in conversation with Valarie this Thursday at 4:30pm ET. Join us. (It’s free.)
I loved this video in which Tim Ferriss breaks down how he reads and synthesizes books. Super interesting.
Highly recommend surrounding yourself with honorable, courageous, generous, supportive, no-bullshit women who make you want to show up to their level. Above all of changes I’ve made, and the personal work I’ve done, this has made the greatest difference in my life.

I feeling this Tweet. I have sensed an intense desire in me recently to surround myself with strong, courageous, generous women. I am lucky I have so many of them in my life. Women lifting each other up is glorious.
I love these graphical photographs titled Urban Erosion by Dutch photographer Maarten Vromans.
The Million Mile Light is a battery-free safety light for runners and joggers that’s powered by motion and engineered to never give up. Brilliant.
This new Tattly Furry Friends Sheet by Brooklyn based illustrator Kevin Waldron is making me happy.
A growing online database of Letraset Sheets. Be still my heart.
I was lucky enough to experience this DO Lectures talk by Alastair Humphreys live in 2018. I keep coming back to it, when I need a little kick in the butt and a reminder to just push myself out of my daily routines and comfort zones. I keep wondering, especially now, in times of Covid, how can I live more adventurously? What micro adventures can I add to my day?
Vintage videos with Dr. Berne about Transnational Analysis, a system for understanding people’s behavior who are trying to change people’s behavior and for predicting people’s behavior.
I remember last year, when I had lunch with the wonderfully thoughtful and talented Max Guwanan, who’s aesthetic I deeply admire, and he showed me his latest product prototype. I at first wasn’t sure what I was looking at and he proceeded to explain it’s a light but also a speaker. Fast forward to this week, where he launched Teno, a new kind of speaker and a new kind of light. And most of all, a beautifully sculptural object. Congrats Max, you did it again. First Lumio, now Teno.
