Amish healthcare, Superhuman, high school

Hello there — thanks for reading! It seems like just yesterday I was writing the first edition of this newsletter (oh, how time flies!).

Last week’s newsletter was received well, and so I have decided to commit to this project. It has never been easier to get distracted by the internet, and I hope that this newsletter can serve as an anchor point to help you find good quality content.

Enjoy your weekend.

From Me

  • I have published a blog post every day over the last week, and I have no intention on giving up.

  • I am starting an interview series to profile stories from ambitious young people who have broken into a job in tech. If you know anyone who would be a good fit, refer them to me.

  • Working hard.
