So I don’t know about you but Sunday is usually a pretty low key day for me. I don’t typically don’t make any big plans on Sunday and really use it as a day to catch up on things I might not have had the chance to do during our typical ultra-busy work week. One of the things I’ve gotten in the habit of doing on Sunday afternoon is reading some of my favorite blogs and going through articles I missed during the week.
Since I’m doing this anyway I thought I might as well share these with all of you since there’s a good chance that if you read my blog, you’ll probably like some of the other blogs that I myself read. So if you’re looking for some Sunday reading, here’s five articles that are on my radar for today:
- Magic leap raised another $461M (read on Techcrunch) – I’m a huge fan of Magic Leap, since I believe that physical screens will go away in the future and AR will be how we view all content, I think they’re onto something big. I’m not alone since the company has now raised over $2.3B and they haven’t yet released a mass market product, wow!
- Pixar’s 22 rules of storytelling (read on Aerogrammestudio) – I spotted this article on YC’s Hacker News and even though it’s from 2013, I love Pixar and am always looking for more ways to learn how they think about the world, and storytelling is a big part of where they really have some serious magic.
- Braden & Nat talk UDRP reform (read on DomainInvesting.com) – as you all know I am pretty passionate about UDRP reform. Elliot, publisher of DomainInvesting.com shared a great video of Braden Pollock and Nat Cohen sitting down to chat about UDRP reform at NamesCon that is definitely well worth watching.
- Bitcoin hits 2018 lows (read more on CoinTelegraph.com) – the cryptocurrency world had a pretty tough go last week with Bitcoin hitting 2018 lows. Many people felt that a slew of bad news including a Mt. Gox trustee who apparently started freaking out and selling $400M in Bitcoin, yikes!
- These are still the early days of AI (read more on Wired.com) – as someone that runs an AI startup I’m always interested in understanding the AI landscape and where we are in the adoption timeline. One thing I can definitely tell you is that these are still the early days of AI and we still have a long and VERY exciting road ahead…but it’s easy to forget just how early those of us in the space all are.
