I’m enjoying Quanta Magazine video content so much. Which other science media groups/content creators do you follow? YouTube-wise; others I can think of 3Blue1Brown, Kurgeszat, Numberphile & ComputerPhile come to mind

finished Fei Fei Li’s “The Worlds I See” https://www.goodreads.com/en/book/show/144405196 Loved how she chose to write about both her personal and professional lives, making for a richer portrait and depth of story. I related to many things written, including the need for institutions like Stanford HAI

packing cubes! of no specific brand, as long as they have the double zipper functionality and are of good finish i love to travel with them nowadays. they make packing & unpacking easier, and reduce the amount of space clothes take in my bags https://amzn.asia/d/9HQGR0r
