I typically don't like long books above 500 pages. Such a commitment! But, I've been working through The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich: A History of Nazi Germany. It's like a 1,500 page book on Hitler's rise and fall. Have said "oh my god" SO many times. t.co/WrKMvyAq1l

Any new project I start: try to get some type of sale or user ASAP. Like, within 5 days. Why: momentum is addicting. No branding, often no website, no LLC, often no product. Just cold email + phone/zoom + a stripe or gumroad or an easy link to to collect $.

A podcast listener made this thing that learns our voice then uses AI to make you rap or say whatever they want you to say. Listen to the last 10 seconds of "me" talking. Its incredible. and scary. t.co/POra1tKi8h
