I loved X-COM: UFO Defense. OK, I played the second installment, but I loved the game. So when I saw on Kickstarter a book on the game designer of the game, I jumped at it.
Amazon is a dividing topic. Fantastic company in terms of accomplishments, and then stories of employees bad treatment. Efficient management, but also gridding people. From the 14 principles, how does it end up with Jeff Bezos buying a mega yacht, him, the prince of frugality.
Climate change is a problem that we have to solve for our children’s sake. The problem is how. When Bill Gates is talking about addressing the issue, it’s interesting because he is part of the problem and he is known to prefer doing things on his own without care about the political aspects. Is it a good thing for climate change or not?
As I’m starting my journey in Rust land, I was curious aout game engines, which is why I started reading this book. On top, I have a keen interest on electronics and machine learning, so all boxes were ticked here.
Rust has been all the hype for some years now in the compiled space. As a new revision of this book is about to get out, I managed to get my hand on the first revision to see how I could learn Rust with it.
There are a few names in game design that I recognize, and Sid Meier is definitely in the top 3 for me. I remember the name from the first Civilization, and it was just awesome. So what about a book on his life? Sign me in.
I started CrossFit some time before the pandemic, and I read lots of people saying that exercising is good for your health, that our ancestors were fitter than we are and all sorts of dogmas. When I heard about this book, it looked like it was about finding a balance and shedding the light on what our ancestors really were. When we try to find the truth about some dogmas, I’m always interested.
Yet another book on Trump, but I liked the premise of this one, as it’s his own niece that wrote it. With a training as a psychologist, she can give a unique perspective on the guy, and het point of view is not the one of an angry betrayed Republican…
It’s only logical to go on an read this book after Me and White Supremacy, as they are answering to each other, one about how to get rid of racism, and this one more on the history and the testimony on racism. It’s also the second book on #BlackLivesMatter that we shared in my fitness book club.
Is it fair to say that this issue is quite current? My fitness book club had this book on their list since before the CrossFit scandal, so it’s fair to see that they were ahead of the curve on this one, and I’m proud to be part of the team.
Still, is being proud of what they did enough? What should I do more to tackle white supremacy?
