Oftentimes I sometimes think I should just say to you to read everything I send you. Today is one of those wide eclectic days with a breadth of today and tomorrow's world. Of course, I know you are a selective bunch, so I will give you some view of my favourites.
If you read one thing Arundhati Roy's narrative on the situation in India is cutting. (A1) Kevin Kelly always gives remarkable views on technology but this article is a list of common-sense recommendations on life (A2). Google's plan for the future of work is a little scary but probably how we need to think (T1) and for anyone who is thinking of hiring (and equally being hired), A10 was one of those articles, which was so rich that I think I might even print it out to make sure I reference it properly in the future,
Onward! - Rahim

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.
