Always a great way to discovery new stuff.

For me:

Also reading a ton of reddit. Favorite subreddit, /r/firstworldanarchists.

Haha. Look forward to reading everyone else’s recommendations!

I’m a big fan of Mark Suster, brilliant LA VC (Upfront Venture, well chosen name)


This is the post which made me connect initially.

Blogs of depth are rare to find & I’m a taken on elaborate ones.
These twitter times of 1 liner solves your problem are gone. The World is complex, so are we :slight_smile:

I am actually reading more & more books. Tons of free books out there (I thought it was Amazon & iBook).
I read Hatching Twitter which was brilliant & scary.
Great book reader by the way: http://www.macbookreader.com/
