I wasn't looking for a powerful piece about ageing, but it found me. The Animal is Tired (A7) is an excellent short piece. Read it!  A2 talks about how our world is not actually what we live but what we experience through our entertainment gateway. It's a sort of weird alternate universe. Alternate influencers are also slightly weird - T6 for example is a world that Im not quite ready for - and Im certainly not ready for Football/Soccer being controlled by Deep Mind (T3)

I wish you wonderful reading!

Stay curious!

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.
