This Week's Reading List 📚

Learn in Public, It’s Great by Yath Prem (5mins)
When people start a project, there are two ways to publish it to the public. 1) Do in silence, show the end product, or 2)Show the process, progress publicly. Austin Kleon explains why the latter is better. And the author of this article was inspired to share his project with the public and he found benefits such as creating accountability, building a feedback loop, seeing your progress, and establishing a community/following. I'm also an advocate of it, so I’d like to recommend this article.

Don’t forget Microsoft by John Luttig (16mins)
This article is about the analysis of Microsoft. The author of this article insists that Microsoft has the potential to become the first $10T company. And he made a comprehensive analysis and suggests strategies in each market. For startups, Microsoft gives a lesson on the power of distribution, product bundling, M&A, and compound growth.

Are Screens Robbing Us of Our Capacity for Deep Reading? by Johann Hari (7mins)
“We’re more likely to scan and skim” when we read on screens. We run our eyes rapidly over the information to extract what we need. According to Anne’s study, people understand and remember less of what they absorb on screens than on a printed book. It’s a spiral—as we began to move from books to screens, we started to lose some of the capacity for the deeper reading that comes from books, and that, in turn, made us less likely to read books.

See you next week ;)
