A curation of articles, tech, books and innovation strategy to enrich your career and personal lives.

A couple of conversations with a good friend totally flipped my perspective on these times we are in. I went from going down the spiral of twitter rage and fivethirtyeight data on all things COVID19, to searching for what the positives during and on the other side of this will look like. I also added some daily routines to maintain balance. I also went back to my copy of ‘The Tomorrow Project’ compiled by Intel’s ex-Futurist, Brian David-Johnson. Compiled in 2012, and unfortunately not available to purchase, a few technologists shared stories/narratives on where technology and society would be between 2020-2025. So, today. Mostly positive, the predictions in the book - voice and video interfaces, adaptive learning tools etc - are being accelerated by the current pandemic. I’ll share more about those narratives in PM.
This is the first paid issue of Polymathic Monthly. I’ve moved the content to its own URL, www.polymathicmonthly.com, enabling you to consume all past content in one place. This issue contains, uhm, all the amazing randomness you’ve come to expect from PM :).

Till next month,
Seyi
