This is my list collection. All sorts of lists are here.
These are some of the books I’ve read. Some are notable, and some I have reservations about.

My biggest influences are other people. These are the people I look up to, am inspired to be like, want to meet, or just find really inspirational, and/or awesome. This is not a sorted list.
A good percentage of media I consume is longform, particularly talks or long videos. This is my “permanent collection” of longform talks from good people. For the purposes of simplicity, I try to collect videos by title, not by person, and I try to use the original title when appropriate. Some videos are re-uploads, which complicates this process.
I’ve listened to a lot of podcasts, which are great for education and entertainment, particularly while walking outdoors. These are the podcasts that I actively recommend and listen to. I don’t put many podcasts on this list, though I’ve listened to and have added many more. Many of the people on the people list have interviews on specific podcasts which are good, but I typically don’t continue listening after the selected episode about them.
- Cortex with CGP Grey and Myke Hurley. Productivity (personal and professional) focused podcast.
- ATP with Marco Arment, John Siracusa, and Casey Liss. An “Accidental Tech Podcast” primarily focused on Apple and its ecosystem. I’ve learned a lot from this podcast (especially in the early episode).
- Rationally Speaking is hosted by Julia Galef. Easily one of the best podcasts for long term consumption with rational discussion.
- Do By Friday is a production with Max Temkin, Merlin Mann, and Alex Cox. It’s just its own thing, really. You have to try it to know if you’ll like it.
supported projects & people
I think it’s important to convey just how important I find some works. These are the projects & people that I financially back through some means that isn’t a product. I support these people by giving them money directly with no expectation of reward. If they’ve already been linked to, they won’t be linked to again.
