Weekend coffee #59.
Ever have one of those weeks where nothing grabs you? That’s where I’m at, feeling a bit listless to be honest. So if you’re still reading after that super engaging intro, let’s just get down to it.
While never one for Valentine’s Day, I am one for the candy. Well, most of it. Cause I definitely don’t want any black-market Necco Sweethearts either, but it’s a funny read.
Equally as amusing is this Quartz piece, “How to break up with someone you’re casually dating: A chatbot lesson.” Good for job seekers, too.
Alexis Ohanian on the Secret to His Marriage to Serena Williams: ‘You Have to Show Up.’ Well, duh, but more important is his discussion of parental leave.
This was a big week for Amazon, with the whole second headquarters debacle and all the personal Bezos drama. Outside of that, they are really making a run against data privacy, ugh.
Speaking of technology, IBM’s AI competed against a human in a debate — and here’s what happened. AI is another area to watch, especially with the BS normalization going on.
Dreaming about warmer weather and this jumper. I really just need to shed a few layers and walk around barefoot in the grass. Everything’s better when it’s hot outside.
Well, that’s it for this one. Heading to Vegas for work on Tuesday, perhaps I’ll come back feeling “inspired.” But probably not. Until next time. Stay warm.
