  7. The Tragic Tale of Notch (Markus Persson, Minecraft). Minecraft wouldn’t be the same without Notch. Well, mainly because he created it. In the beginning, Notch was considered a god, but after cashing out of Minecraft in a $2.5 billion dollar deal with Microsoft, the expectation of life following such might have been happiness, fulfillment, and satisfaction, however, the reality for Notch ended up being quite the opposite.

Visual Theory 🐦
I just launched Best of Twitter Weekly, a place where I share tweets from some great super-genius for the ages:
- growth strategies
- philosophy
- mental models
- rationalism
- tech, and various research
This is a medium where I am planning to curate tweets. I also met a handful of interesting people via Twitter, and this is one more reason I started this micro-project.

Here’s the evolution of this side project — Visual Theory. I am re-learning how to see.
➜ You can follow the project on 🐦 Twitter & 📷 Instagram
➜ you can also contribute an idea!
Thank you for reading!
How’re you and yours doing this week? Any major changes to your status quo, or are things fairly locked-in and predictable at the moment? I respond to every email I get—consider sending me a message and telling me a bit about yourself and what’s been up in your world.
