I've officially been blocked by nntaleb... for making a joke about his email autoresponder.

Hi from Japan!

Ribbonfarm is where I go to feel mediocre and untintelligent. I run a (very) small business here in Japan and also do some blogging/podcasting.

Request:

What are your favorite examples of “now reading” pages? Do you have one of your own?

These can be anywhere along the spectrum of random reading recommendations, or highly structured lists of books / resources, eg in a cirriculum format. Particulaly interested in ones created/maintained by individuals rather than organizations.

Examples:
- ribbonfarm.com/now-reading/
- sanctum.sh/learning-list
- gatesnotes.com/Books#All
