A bit dubious on explaining the following but as part of the commitment on the experiment “Bye Bye Shyness”, here it is. You know a lot about a person by what he/she reads, more than for what he/she says - and how much of it he/she does. The idea of this section other than this post which would be akin to an org file, is to have something like the CD Baby guy has in his blog (A.K.A Derek Sivers for the curious) for each book I read, or at least try. And then try to abide myself by this quote:

“I never understand anything until I have written about it.” - Horace Walpole

What I’m reading in a more or less perpetual motion (all links are from my own hosting):

  • Talk and notes on this talk: Part 1 and Part 2
  • Talks and notes on this talk series: (usually play this on repeat on the back while working)
  • Autobiography of a Yogi, Paramahansa Yogananda (perspective)
  • You and your research, Richard Hamming
  • Awaken the giant within (Tony Robbins)
  • My own thoughts in my notebooks (1x month)

Now onto the less interesting bit, what I’m reading right now: - The act of creation. By Arthur Koesler (candidate to go into the perpetual reading list.) - SICP. By Harold Abelson & Gerald Jay Susseman(again) - Software design for flexibility (aka, SICP part 2). By Chris Hanson & Gerald Jay Susseman - The art of doing science and engineering. By Richard Hamming - The construction and use of machines. By Frederick W. Turner - Solve for happy. By Mo Gowdat - Screw it, Let’s do it. By Richard Branson - The Wim Hof Method. By Wim Hof (reading again, re: the act of discovery)

Certainly though - my anti-library remains private.
