I travelled with three colleagues to Kakinada on a business trip. We went there on February 5 and returned on February 9.
I clicked the above pics from my phone at Hyderabad. One is a picture of the city when we were flying from Hyderabad to Pune. The other two are the aircrafts that flew us from Rajahmundry to Hyderabad (ATR-72) and from Hyderabad to Pune (Airbus A320). Most of this week was spent at the base.
I missed writing the post for Week 5 of 2023 as I was finishing work in preparation for this trip.
Pradeep’s Space Newsletter has been on hiatus for a long time. It comes back online this week for the second edition. This time, I am working to add more context to the stories and will be more picky in the number of stories that I will cover. But, I need someplace to dump the rest of the stories that I follow to write the newsletter. That may probably land on this blog or it may go into Roam Research.
I have reduced my consumption of Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. I hang around Mastodon much more but have not been posting there. But, it has increased my consumption of YouTube. After watching this video (covered in Weekly Notes 2), I had hoped to blog more here but it seems to be endless stretch of these Weekly Notes.
I’ve been doing a deep dive of the FreeFinCal’s YouTube channel. I had followed his blog way back in 2015 but stopped following him thinking him to be very conservative in his style of investing. He makes much more sense to me now. I got back to him after watching this interview on Labour Law Advisor’s YouTube channel.
I also enjoyed Ali Abdaal’s two Deep Dive interviews with Cal Newport and Ryder Caroll discussing Slow Productivity and the Bullet Journal Method respectively.
I enjoy listening to Saurabh Mukherjea talk. He has an interesting basis for his investment thesis that he outlines in this talk. He says that India is networking and linking up as the United States did and as it happened in the United States in the 1880-1930’s, so it will happen in India that as India networks, it would lead to creation of monopolies.
There are two blog posts in my drafts column. One is on analog and digital note-taking. The other is on the Star Party that I went to on January 28. I have no idea when I will be able to publish them.
