  • A Quiet Life (29 Nov 2020)

    This is a personal note and not a typical commentary on a genial topic as a post of mine usually is.
    I just wanted to put this out there because to me it marks a clear developmental milestone which I hope to briefly cover without getting into the details or the circumstances that came to pass that prompted such a milestone to be achieved.

    I read 2 very interesting books in the past 3 months that investigated slightly tangential topics.

    Both of these authors are giants in their own right and the books were necessarily brilliant and thought provoking.

  • No more noise ft App Recommendation (30 Apr 2019)

    I recently watched Avengers: Endgame, if you haven’t watched it yet, you should. It’s a lovely movie.

  • Money for Nothing (29 Apr 2019)

    A friend asked me to do a post on Universal Basic Income, a topic that has had it’s ups and downs.
