Here I am, sitting at my desk on a Saturday, spinning along with this little blue orb in space we call Earth, processing the last two-and-a-half weeks. Thinking about my future, thinking about the past, typing right now. Looking outside my window at trees covered in snow, thinking about JavaScript as the sun begins to set, pausing to gaze at the books strewn across my table: Brain Rules on neuroscience, Prospect the Sandler Way on sales, Applied Cryptography on cryptography, The Principia on mathematics, LIFE 3.0 on artificial intelligence, and Mastering Bitcoin on the Bitcoin blockchain.
