Beat the Blues – Week #30 Round-up
Here is a round-up of some of the most interesting content I came across in Week #30 of 2020.
What I am looking forward to:-
My first paperback purchase in months – Poor Economics was a book I’d had in my wishlist for quite some time and thanks to a ‘steal deal’ from Flipkart, getting two for the price of (nearly) one. They should be here by Tuesday!
P.S: Caveat: if you are looking to grab the deal, watch out for the quality. Few complaints.
A blockbuster Spotify exclusive, TMOP promises to be intriguing – the first guest? Barack Obama. If you are a fan of the former first lady, this one’s a must-add to your listen list.
Also nicely complements my current audible listen – Becoming.
What I’m listening to:-
One half of the beloved, a16z, a.k.a Andressen Horowitz, this is a timeless conversation from one of the smartest folks in the valley.
How does innovation thrive when your company grows beyond a threshold?
The Mercedes Benz group seems to have figured it out. Highly recommend.
Shoutout to the product wiz, Kishore for sharing this 🙂
A quote I am pondering:-
“The most reliable framework I’ve come up with for understanding people is ‘normie, aspie, or sociopath.” – Zack Kanter
Here’s some additional context:
- Aspies excel in math, science, and engineering.
- Sociopaths excel in politics, activism, and other status-seeking.
- Normies excel in everyday life.
As Paul Graham puts, its ridiculous on first look until you try to test it out by bucketing people you know.

Here’s to a great week 🙂
