So much content, so little time. This is my curation of things I find interesting, valuable and worth the while in the realms of business, design, tech, futurism, philosophy, lifestyle and culture. Driven by curiosity, published monthly.

Delivering ISSUE #9! Here we are: 
  • Objectified is a must-see documentary on design, our relationship with objects and how that shapes the world around us 🖊️📐
  • Flow.ai is like Wordpress for chatbots, or rather: a conversational AI toolkit, making it possible for you to design + build your own 🤖💬
  • Ever wondered how your Spotify’s Discover Weekly suggestions are so on-point? This is the machine learning behind the magic 🎵🔮
  • Changemakers is a new video series with personal interviews on social entrepreneurship by my talented friend Catalina Catana, the #1 is out now 👩‍💼📼
  • The one-page visual alternative to the traditional business plan: introducing the Business Model Canvas 📈✨

Objectified: a must-see design documentary 🖊️📐
Objectified is a feature-length documentary about our complex relationship with manufactured objects and, by extension, the people who design them. It interviews a wide range of thought leaders from different disciplines and continents such as Paola Antonelli (MOMA’s Design Curator), Chris Bangle (BMW’s former Design Director) and 2 of IDEO’s co-founders. Although from 2009, I watched it for the first time last week and file it as an instant classic for anyone interested in design and the impact it has on our daily lives.

Build your own little chatbot with Flow.ai 🤖💬
Flow.ai is a conversational AI toolkit aiming to make it 10x easier for people to build their chatbots. What Wordpress does for websites, I see Flow.AI do for chatbots. Although you might not use this tool directly, I see this step towards accessibility as an important moment in its development. By when do you think all customer service representatives will be digitalized?

The machine learning behind Spotify's suggestions 🎵🔮
I’ve been an avid user of Spotify and week after week, it serves me a list of 30 unknown-to-me songs in my Discover Weekly. The suggestions are so on-point, causing me to just keep ‘adding to songs’ one after the other, and I’ve heard from many of my Spotifying friends having the same experience. Truthfully, it’s one of the main reasons I’m with them still. This article demystifies the machine learning behind the magic.

Inside the minds of social entrepreneurs 👩‍💼📼
Changemakers is a new video series on social entrepreneurship by my talented friend Catalina Catana. Unlike most interviews, focusing on the business bits of wisdom, Changemakers focuses on the personal resilience and psychological make-up that drives the need and ability to make such an impact. The first edition is out now for you to enjoy.

That’s it for number nine and also the last of its kind. From here on I will send the digest on a monthly, opposed to bi-weekly basis. I’m so grateful for your readership and want to make sure to honor quality over quantity, so that I’m always aligned behind and truly excited to share those 5 items that I’m sharing with you.
