The situation in India lays bare how at risk we all still are and how important the rollout of the vaccine is. And I think it's this ever-constant, relentless, yoyoing of hope that made me really associate with my first recommendation piece (A1). I don't think it will quite lead me to rip up my life plan (A3).

For those of you looking at blockchain again, please do listen to Chris Dixon (T8) and both T10 and T1 will open your eyes to a new Internet. 

A9 is my long read recommendation for all y'all into the property game.  

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.
