📚 3 Good Articles for You

Yvon Chouinard Donates Patagonia to Fight Climate Crisis
by Yvon Chouinard (2min)
Instead of “going public,” you could say we’re “going purpose.” Instead of extracting value from nature and transforming it into wealth for investors, we’ll use the wealth Patagonia creates to protect the source of all wealth. Each year, the money we make after reinvesting in the business will be distributed as a dividend to help fight the crisis. Despite its immensity, the Earth’s resources are not infinite, and it’s clear we’ve exceeded its limits. But it’s also resilient. We can save our planet if we commit to it.

I Studied Hundreds of Successful People — And Wrote a Book About What I Learned
by Polina Pompliano (4min)She realized that the highest performers don't use "tricks" or "hacks" to achieve greatness. They use mental frameworks that fundamentally change the way they see the world. Idolizing traps you into imitating ‘perfect’ versions of imperfect people. Learning, on the other hand, allows you to observe, synthesize, and pave your own path. There is no perfect human being, but she believes that we can all learn from each other’s most fulfilling successes—as well as our most devastating failures.🔗 Glasp Community Highlights

The Infinite Article
by Nathan Baschez (9min)
How close are we to having a personal AI that can write the perfect thing just for us? “The next frontier for content recommendations is going to be AI merging content rather than users flipping between articles. Imagine an app that is a continuous article and writes itself as you read based on its understanding of your interests & your interaction with the content.” Google search is the closest thing we have today to the infinite article — especially now that they’re pulling information out of articles and displaying it directly on the search results page.
