Some of the interesting things I came across this week:
- Social network gaming. How gaming has become the go-to place for people to connect, taking the place of social networks, or at least supplementing them.
- Make me Smart on Alexa – courtesy of APM’s Marketplace. One of my favorite radio programs on NPR is Marketplace, and I’ve been listening since first getting into the public radio scene in 2007. This new feature for Alexa smart speakers is wonderful to have.
- It’s good to be the dumbest guy in the room. Robert Kiyosaki wrote in Rich Dad, Poor Dad something along the line of “a successful business person will hire people smarter than themself.” This is basically the same concept, and it’s one I often find myself thinking about. Coming across this during the week was apt timing…
- How hangovers started Brunch. Just for fun. Subsequently, this caused my rant on avocado toast.
