Reading 📚

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.

Writing ✍️

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 republished here.

Questions 🧢

Here are a few questions I currently think of, in a rough sense and no particular order:

  • Can mega corporations co-exist with smaller competing startups?
  • Will AI (and by extension systems enabled by AI) ever replace human functions, and if so, which?
  • How do you ensure and validate trust in a service or product, even at scale?
