Quote I’m pondering “I’ve been inspired by a shitload of people in my life so if there’s ever anybody that I can inspire, to me that’s a huge gift. To be able to turn that back around.” – Joe Rogan

Most interesting read – Artificial intelligence has solved the ‘magical mystery’ of several Beatles songs. With 76% accuracy, algorithms and machine learning are telling us who did what on some of the greatest songs you’ve ever heard. Check out more at HDSR.

Email like a boss – This graphic from the talented Dani Donovan is helping me become more effective at responding to messages at work. Take a look for yourself, the results aren’t clear for me just yet, though using these terms feels nicer so I’m sticking to them.

Did we land on the moon? – This one has always fascinated me. I’m open minded to everything, working hard not to believe something just because organisations and experts say it’s true. I look at all the evidence. Right now I do believe we landed on the moon, though if evidence in the future shows we didn’t, I’m open to it. The Guardian has published a long form read on the popularity of moon landings being faked. It’s a well written piece whatever you might believe.

New app I’m using – Thanks to a fellow blogger Nick Severson, the Notion app came my way. Currently I’m using it in parallel with Evernote and it’s looking pretty great. It’s got everything you might need in one place – journal, lists and notes. It’s like Trello, Evernote and Asana all in one on steroids. If you have multiple apps for notes, organising, reading lists and journaling take a look at Notion, it’s likely to be something you’ll enjoy trying too.


I hope you have a fantastic weekend doing the things you enjoy with the people you love.
