I've been reading books ever since the wee age of 8. Only recently did I switch from fiction to business and history titles, something I never thought I'd do. The primary motivator was the dearth of insightful and comprehensive content available online on these topics.
I'm currently reading the following set of books.
I've written a few articles on my not-so-periodic newsletter. I try to write about topics which really helped me or really capture my intrigue. Like these:
I also wrote a few short stories in the past, which I have republished here.
Here are a few questions I currently think of, in a rough sense and no particular order:

Is AI (and by extension systems enabled by AI) fundamentally flawed? Why are some groups of people highly invested in it, and others completely detest it?
How do you ensure and validate trust in a service or product, even at scale?
Thanks for reading!
