Here are this week’s…
An excellent interview with psychologist Dacher Keltner, who has spent much of his professional career trying to answer the following question : how can we live a good life? A big part of it seems to be related to being amazed at things outside ourselves. But there’s also so many other things to learn in this interview. No Small Wonder.
A map that depicts 529 cable systems and 1,444 landings that are currently active or under construction. The Submarine Cable Map 2023.
A thought-provoking piece that will take you on a journey of reflection on our existence. The Lie of a Lifetime.
A free web app that lets you replace your browser’s tab with a more beautiful one. It works on Firefox, Chrome, and Edge. Tabliss.
An app that introduces you to someone new to meet and talk with. What makes it interesting is that it all happens over Breakfast.
A great app if you need to generate quizzes. You can start for free with 4 quizzes, then it’s $12.99 per month. Quizbot.
A search engine that doesn't know anything about you, meaning it does not track your searches or your personal data. Qwant.
The works of over 30,000 artists, writers, musicians, and filmmakers,
from 159 countries, in 4 time capsules launched to the moon. The Lunar Codex.
Author Elise Loehnen wrote a superb piece about transitioning from a full time job to following your heart and doing what you really want. Transitions.
An excellent Hidden Brain podcast episode, on why we all get stuck at various points in our lives, and how to break free. How to Break Out of a Rut.
BONUS: Two interesting articles sharing writer and philosopher’s Alain de Botton’s opinions about the news. Both articles are from 2014, when his book The News: A User’s Manual came out, but I think they are very relevant today.
The news is the best distraction ever invented. It sounds so serious and important. But it wants you never to have any free time ever again, time where you can daydream, unpack your anxieties, and have a conversation with yourself. (Alain de Botton)
