It’s the end of the fiscal year at work… so I’ve been a tad preoccupied.
Also, I’m slogging through Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow.
In addition to all of that… here’s what I read this week.
Why Introverts Are Better at Sales Than Extroverts by Geoffrey James – Some of this is correct… and some of it is complete and utter bullshit. Technology hasn’t made “cold calling” obsolete. But it sure as hell has made it simultaneously easier and more difficult.
Why American Farmers Are Hacking Their Tractors With Ukrainian Firmware by Jason Koebler – That moment when Ukrainian hackers and American farmers team up for the greater good. John Deere should be ashamed.
The Restless Ghosts of Baiersdorf by Sabine Heinlein – “In 1933, when Hitler came to power, Baiersdorf was poor and with few opportunities.” Sort of like… yeah.
Existential Office E-mails by Jessie Gaynor – “Soon we will stare into the void adjacent to one another, but not together, in Conference Room B”
The NBA’s Secret Addiction by Baxter Holmes – Street value: $0.69 a hit.
No Sympathy for the Hillbilly by Frank Rich – “If we are free to loathe Trump, we are free to loathe his most loyal voters, who have put the rest of us at risk.” The loathing shouldn’t be limited to just Trump voters… well… at least… mine isn’t. I’ll have more to say on this in the future.
