Five Things #78 / 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. A technology horror story — "I Forgot My PIN": An Epic Tale of Losing $30,000 in Bitcoin

  2. It's easy to forget this: "Education isn't here to make you feel comfortable. A good education should, inherently, cause us discomfort. Part of the 'enlightening experience' built into the definition of the word 'education' itself is shining light into the darkness of our own ignorance. When has that ever felt good?" — We Shouldn't Always Feel Comfortable: Why 'To Kill a Mockingbird' Matters

  3. I just finished reading The Rational Optimist by Matt Ridley. It's a fascinating, thought provoking book. It definitely tested my assumptions and biases in a number of areas.

  4. Attack of the VR shark.

  5. This week's music recommendation is Otto Totland's album Pinô. This album reminded me a lot of Nils Frahm's piano based albums, maybe that shouldn't come as a surprise as it was recorded and produced by him!

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