The world is splitting into (has already split?) multiple geopolitical factions and if you look into both the TikTok and Twitter stories you'll get a strong feeling of this. This is just the tip of the iceberg and one instance within tech. I'm afraid that this will continue as we start to see tech and non-tech walled gardens that have evolved this century. The question to think about is how you protect yourself as the world moves to become protectionist?
Stay sane, stay safe!

Box of Amazing is a personal project that I first started in 2017 to help curate quality articles for myself to fine-tune my reading around emerging technologies and the future. I now send this out by email every Sunday to whoever wants to receive it. The newsletter consists of ten great articles (topical recommended reading) and ten stories (what's amazing!). Box of Amazing now has thousands of readers spanning the globe from San Francisco to Tokyo and across multiple industries including strategy consultancy houses (McKinsey to Bain), from all the FAANG companies (Facebook to Alphabet), from startups to scaleups, from unicorns to brand new companies as well as people just interested in staying ahead of the game. If you enjoy it, please share it with your friends, family, co-workers, enemies, competitors, pets, potential love interests and others who are interested in learning about the emerging technology and trends that will affect us all in this lifetime. If you have been forwarded this email, you can sign up at boxofamazing.com - it's free.
