Why a newsletter
Over the past 2 years, I’ve spent more time on social media than I’ve ever spent before. And after all that two things have become clear, if they weren’t already. My time is valuable and your time is valuable. Our time and attention are such valuable things that all social platforms, especially ad revenue and data collection platforms, are battling to obtain. We use these platforms for a lot of things. Staying up to date with friends, entertainment, dogs and cats, learning from professionals in our field, getting updates from our favorite brands, growing our own followings etc. The list goes on.
In my humble opinion, the wide range of content we consume on social platforms is partially what makes it so hard to be intentional with what we consume. You hop on with the intent to message a friend and end up buying some merch, watching cat videos, and scrolling mindlessly for 20 minutes. Newsletters are one way to make this easier on ourselves.
I’m going to be using this newsletter to give life updates, tell you about what I’m working on, and share what I create and learn. So if you plan on tagging along, thank you! And this becomes even more fun if you ask questions, email me back, and let me know what you think so please do.
To give you an idea of what I might talk about my interests, ever-changing and adapting, currently lay around:
Urban planning: The way our cities are setup has such a profound effect on the way we live.
Climate Change: Aren’t we all?
Right now I’m working on:
Build a React/Django App Youtube Series
And a few things I’d like to learn more about include:
Global Food Distribution: How fragile or perhaps robust is our global food production and distribution network?
Farming: How much food could we produce on earth and what sort of population could it support?
Education Tech: What does the future of education look like? Especially in an era where misinformation and echo chambers are so pervasive.
