What I’m Reading
Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber 📚Great book, reads like a thriller. How Uber conquered the world and the shady tactics they used in the process. Get an inside look into the world of startups, venture capital, and all expenses paid corporate debauchery.
No Meeting, No Deadlines, No full-time Employees Gumroad never reached the status of a Unicorn startup. The founder felt like a failure. But creating a multi-million dollar company ain’t that bad either. Now the CEO, Sahil, focuses on a more sustainable business with a better work/life balance.

Teachers, fitness instructors, models, and others flock to platforms such as Gumroad, OnlyFans, and Teachable. The promise is that they can sell their skills on these platforms. But competition is brutal and there’s no safety net.
Secrets about People: A Short and Dangerous Introduction to René Girard We don’t want things; we want to be things. This article is an introduction to the philosophy of René Girard.

However, I challenge you to read it through the end without gaining a new perspective on status and desire.
What I found
Best movies of 2020 according to the ranking of Letterboxd. Some art-house gems for sure.
Best Edited TikTok video I’ve seen TikTok enables a new generation of creators to showcase their talent.
What Every Clubhouse Room feels like (I’ve got 3 Clubhouse invites left if you want, one send me a message)
Eating Frikandelbroodjes above your keyboard There’s simply no way to eat these things without a vacuum cleaner nearby.
