Good morning! 
In this week’s issue, check out a nonprofit aimed at stopping tech companies from “hijacking our minds” as the founder says internet users must rise up and reclaim their humanity. 😐
Chengdu, the hometown of Pandas, and a city of 15 million in southwestern China. Once known for its prolific production of iPads, It becomes a rising powerhouse in information technologies like health tech, video gaming, and virtual reality. Now the city’s development policies have a new focus: drawing foreign start-ups and entrepreneurs to join the city’s humming technology start-up scene.🇨🇳

Last, a piece of career advice from Slack’s PM. It was a live chat session from 2 years ago.⚡️🔮
Have a good weekend. I would always love to hear from you.
