Updated September, 8th 2023:
- Starting a four-month (post-graduation) sabbatical (September — January) where I will be traveling. Starting in the Netherlands and ending in India. I’ll be writing a log here.
- Hacking on a project to enrich Google Maps with events/real-time data. I am treating Google Maps as the “infrastructure” and building on top of it to discover people, places, and events on the move.
- I write here every day.
- I am cutting out all YouTube for the sabbatical to cultivate my deep attention and be more intentional. The site has introduced TikTok-like shorts, and they are addictive.
- 10-day Vipassana meditation in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts (September 20th - October 1st) at Dhamma Dharā
- RailsWorld Conference October 5-6 in Amsterdam.
- A Time of Gifts: On Foot to Constantinople: From the Hook of Holland to the Middle Danube by Patric Leigh Fermor, recommended by my roommate and good friend David Oks
- Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson. Recommended by Eron Nicholson
- Revising Prose 5th Edition by Richard A. Lanham. Recommended by Jason Fried
- The Bhagavad Gita was translated by Laurie L. Patton. Recommended by my professor Nathanael Shelley, after reading Barbara Stoler Miller’s many times translation.
