Effective Reading

I came across two great guides on effective reading this week, a detailed guide from Maarten Van Doorn and a more digestible guide from Denys Zhadanov. Both posts overlap on some great techniques on how to read with purpose, take notes, and recall and synthesis those notes into long term knowledge.

Mission Protocol

Mission Protocol is a code of conduct that technology companies can adopt to ensure that their work and mission are well defined and committed to be free from harassment, abuse and other principles. The mission protocol provides a versioned standard that companies can use and display as a badge on their website.

David Attenborough's A Life On Our Planet

This week I watched David Attenborough's excellent documentary film A Life On Our Planet on Netflix. David himself describes the film as his witness statement of the destruction of the bio-sphere that he has witnessed in his lifetime. It is harrowing viewing but ends in an optimistic call to action about what needs to be done to stop ourselves from destroying the planet. It is mandatory viewing for everyone, especially for those with children or in positions of power or influence.
