☕️Random Fun with Alberto 🚀

Hi All!

What I am reading 📚

Over the weekend I devoured Ultralearning by Scott Young. The book is about a framework and a set of principles for “ultralearning”, a method of condensed and deliberate learning. I first heard of Young when he was attempting his MIT Challenge, a quest to complete the MIT Computer Science course in one year instead of four. He did it.

The book is well structured, fun to read and provides many real life examples. Both from living people (like you and I) and famous historical characters like Benjamin Franklin and Richard Feynman.

I’ll post my notes about the book very soon. I’m also applying some of the principles in the book in my next projects. Stay tuned 📖.

Nerd Corner 🤓

For as long as I can remember I’ve been trying to keep my digital life (files, projects, photos, etc.) organized. This year, after reading a very insightful article I finally came up with a fairly simple system. I wrote a blogpost about it. Go read it 👓.

Also interesting 🤯

  • This list of uncommon yet cool sports 🤽🏐. What was surprising to me is the variety of sports included in the list. Most are much more uncommon than Underwater Rugby…

  • Ray Dalio’s views on the ongoing trade war between US and China are thought provoking and provide a glimpse of economic history. Watch the video until the end.

  • If you like podcasts (they’re all over the place nowadays), be sure to listen to Naval’s podcast. It is one of my favorites. Small pieces (usually 5 minutes or less) filled with wisdom. Here’s an example 🎙.
