Things to learn list

My friend told me yesterday that he has an ‘ignorance’ book – a book of things he wants to learn more about.

I don’t have a book like that, but I do keep a list of classes I would like to take and a list of things to read.

There is never enough time to learn everything, but there is enough time to learn something, so having a book or a list like that , like an amazon wish list of things I understood better, would be helpful for focusing time and energy.

Right now I have this:

to read

I need to work this into the system.

streaks plus little b blogging.

My son told me he wanted to learn Japanese. I told him to check out our portfolio company Duolingo‘s awesome language learning product of the same name. He told me that he has used Duolingo and likes it, particularly the ability to generate streaks. He told me that once you have a streak going, you really…

From MIT TECH review

According to a 2017 study by the Brookings Institution, the Toledo metropolitan area is the most roboticized in the United States, with nine robots per 1,000 workers. There were 702 robots there in 2010. By 2015, there were 2,374. There are more now. In March, another study estimated that the state had lost 671,000 jobs to automation between 1967 and 2014, more than it lost to domestic competition (such as from right-to-work states, which restrict the power of unions) and foreign trade combined.
