“A network designed to withstand nuclear attack,
brought down by toasters”
That line made me jump out of my Monday morning bot-like routine—the reference is to the massive internet outage on October 16th across the US thanks to a handful of IoT devices. A reminder, that we are as strong as the weakest link. But thankfully there are less unsettling things to talk about and share this week—from processes to a little fun history, a checklist of design-mistakes and more. Here goes—

How to stop designing things that won’t get built
The surprising history of emojis
Five (avoidable) design mistakes startups make
How should I cope with failure and rejection?

Detail of a Poster of the Seven Learning from BrainPickings’ Seven years of reading, writing and curating. In an era filled with relentless productivity tips, apps and hacks—this stands out for me as a nudge towards balancing it with mindfulness and thoughtfulness. BTW PowerUp Issue 10 has 2 more learnings (BrainPickings completed its 9th year then).

Until after a bright weekend of lights—
Happy Deepavali,
