1. Barbara Oakley's Learning How to Learn is the world's most popular MOOC. I'm also taking it. I love Barbara Oakley's nerdy style!
2. We need to talk about an injustice. Bryan Stevenson, real-life hero.
3. Trying out HEY, a new email experience by the people behind Basecamp.
4. I'm on day 79 of my French-learning streak on Duolingo. Don't think I've been this consistent at learning a language before.
5. Bruno Major's new album, "To Let A Good Thing Die". His sound is analog and warm. I love it.
6. I am a member of The Correspondent and I'm happy to be supporting and paying for collaborative and constructive journalism. Check it out. They go by a pay-what-you-wish model, so it's affordable.
7. Reading: "On Writing Well" by William Zinsser (for the second time)
8. Quote to think about: "You know, ultimately, we all have to believe things we haven't seen. As rational as we are, as committed to intellect as we are. Innovation, creativity, development come not from the ideas in our mind alone. They are also fueled by some conviction in our heart. And it's that mind-heart connection that I believe compels us to not just be attentive to all the bright and dazzly things, but also the dark and difficult things. Vaclav Havel, the great Czech leader, said, 'When we were in Eastern Europe and dealing with oppression, we wanted all kinds of things, but mostly what we needed was hope, an orientation of the spirit, a willingness to sometimes be in hopeless places and be a witness.'"
