Five Things #76 / by Ross Farley

Every Wednesday I share five things I've liked and think you might like too. Here are this week’s Five Things…

  1. On Monday astronomers announced that they had witnessed the collision of two dead stars. Mind-blowing stuff. This sentence describing those dead stars is more than a little mind bending: "... neutron stars are full of stuff, matter packed at the density of Mount Everest in a teaspoon."

  2. More priceless wisdom from Seth Godin: The engine of our discontent. If you haven't subscribed to his daily newsletter, you should consider it. It's a gold mine.

  3. I'm really looking forward to reading Walter Isaacson's new book on Leonardo Di Vinci. His book on Benjamin Franklin was excellent. Tim Ferriss interviewed Walter on his podcast last week. If you're curious about the book, it's a good place to start. Tim Ferriss is a great interviewer.

  4. Who'd have thought videos of lane-modifying machines could be so interesting. Saying that, I'm pretty sure the folks at 99% Invisible could make anything interesting!

  5. This week's music recommendation is Rafael Anton Irisarri's latest album The Shameless Years. Rafael is one of favourite ambient/ drone composers. He writes great music to think or work to (exactly like I'm doing right now!).

That's all for this week. If you enjoyed it, subscribe and you'll get the next one delivered to your inbox.
