My summer just got even more busy. Until late August, it’s going to be tough for me to write in depth posts. That said, I’ll do my best to continue sending out some recommended reading, quotes, and drone photos on a weekly basis.

Article on a very effective way of finding new music (And how it works) – The magic that makes Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlists so damn good

  • “A practical way of estimating the complexity of a network is to measure how difficult it is to predict its behavior.”
  • “Is the apparent similarity just the human tendency to perceive meaningful patterns in random data (apophenia)? Remarkably enough, the answer seems to be no: Statistical analysis shows these systems do indeed present quantitative similarities.”

The world is really heating up – Last month was the hottest June ever recorded in Earth’s history


  • “France’s previous national temperature record was set 16 years ago, on August 12, 2003, when 15,000 people across the country died in a severe summer heat wave. A study found that climate change made that 2003 heat wave twice as likely. Overall, according to France’s national weather agency, the number of heat waves in the country has doubled in the past 34 years and is expected to double again by 2050.”

Some Great News on Renewables – For the first, U.S renewables energies surpass coal 


  • “U.S. coal generation has declined from its peak a decade ago,” the EPA wrote. “Since the beginning of 2015, about 47 GW of U.S. coal-fired capacity has retired, and virtually no new coal capacity has come online.”


“The world is changed by your example, not by your opinion.”

  • Paulo Coelho

“A person’s success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have.”

  • Tim Ferriss
