So I Just Read This

I like reading. I want to share the interesting findings as well as laying down the mental picture I have been building.

Here, I write about the books I just read. This will help me follow my own thread and maybe help you learn a thing or two along the way. You will also find interview transcripts in the So I Just Met Someone series.

Hop on and enjoy.

    So I just read “Capital et Idéologie” by Thomas Piketty. This book is about history and more specifically the history of ideologies. The author studies how economic inequalities and their justification evolved in the last centuries. I think it’s worth the reading.

    So I Just Met Someone. A few Fridays ago I sat with Vincent to chat about his experience as a developer and CTO within the Bitcoin universe. If you are new to this and never heard about Bitcoin, imagine Bitcoin as a network of users sharing code that does one useful stuff: create and transact… Read more

    “Thinking, Fast and Slow” So I just read “Thinking, Fast and Slow” by Daniel Kahneman. Long story short, the book explores what is behind your decisions and thoughts process and mostly, what were the mistakes along the way. It is easy, empiric, fun and more often than not, you see how goofy your thought process… Read more
