படித்ததில் பிடித்தது – Edition 1

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ravi @ 12:21 am

I know that blogging is dead and all that.

All readings are not useless/wrong. But reading all there is, is definitely wrong. I start this as a process to study how wasteful my time is spent going thro’ links on twitter/feedly and see if I can refine the process! Also, instead of just consuming everything like fiber and letting it go, this should help in thinking about the important stuff and absorb a bit of what is read into my life. I hope!

1) Stanley Kubrik’s French toast: it is not only my breakfast, it is the film.

3) Thirukural of the day:

கொக்கொக்க கூம்பும் பருவத்து மற்றதன்

குத்தொக்க சீர்த்த இடத்து

4) Bill Waterson’s peach of advice: “And I think, you’ll happier for the trouble”

5) One of my favorite persons ever Tyler Cowen gives this interesting stat in a superb blog that needs to be internalized by everyone who hopes to have a job 5 years down the lane.

“It’s already the case that the best students from India are at the top in many Coursera classes, putting America’s arguably less motivated bright young people to shame.”

Also, this nail on the head: “There will be a lot more wealth in this brave new world, but it won’t be very evenly distributed because a lot of human labor won’t seem like a special or scarce resource.”
