Diversity In Tech, Sports On The Brink Of Collapse, & Beautiful Efficiency – Link Roundup

Since I no longer post often on Twitter, I’ve decided to do a regular roundup of all of the interesting and thought provoking content that I’ve come across recently.

I really enjoyed doing these link roundup’s in 2016 and plan on continuing them in 2017. In addition to being an outlet to share interesting stuff that I’ve come across, it also acts as reinforcement for me. I find that revisiting a story and summarizing my thoughts about it really helps my recall and retention, and often I’ll notice something that I missed the first time around.



  • Abdi and the Golden Ticket – the story of a Somali refugee living in Kenya who has a rare opportunity to get a US Visa. [This American Life]
  • Finding The Fake-News King – they use some creative techniques to track down someone in the US responsible for pedaling fake news and knock on his door to learn more about why he does it. [Planet Money]
  • Serial Entrepreneur: Mark Cuban – still my favorite entrepreneur, Mark and his story never fail to motivate me. [How I Built This]


  • Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss – this is a really unique read. I’m about 1/3 of the way through. It’s effectively the (700 page) cliff notes from Tim’s podcast interviews with world-class performers. Since I’ve listened to most of the ones I’m interested in, I found the new material to be lacking, however it does put a lot of great info in one place.
