  1. Edition 13: Microbetting: The Teenage Sex of the Betting World by Spencer Marell — The title is cringeworthy, but the content is thoughtful. A balanced debate on the merits, potential growth, and costs of micro-betting.
  2. How Online Shopping Works on the World’s Most Remote Islands by Tiara Tuuhia — I love finding edge cases and seeing what they say about systems as a whole. Rest of World is one of my favorite subscriptions and this one doesn’t disappoint. Fascinating look at the limits of e-commerce and our logistics systems.
  3. Creating a Better Robot by Laura Feinstein — More and more I’m considering robotics and the lack of them here in the US. Ever since I read Dan Wang’s 2017 Letter and listened to Pieter Levels, it’s been in my ear that Asia is far outpacing the US in robotics. This article gives me a taste of what I’m missing out on.
  4. why we should regulate masturbation by Liz Plank — For a couple weeks, I felt like a Scott Galloway stan account. Now I’m starting to feel like a Liz Plank stan account. She just keeps saying the quiet part out loud. A funny, surprising, and thoughtful article once again.
  5. 175 — Lexi “Bel” by Workspaces — I continue to devour this newsletter every weekend. If I ever doubted that everything is prettier in pink, this workspace put my doubts to rest. If only my workspace were this thoughtfully arranged.
