November 17 · Issue #66 · View online

A short monthly newsletter packed with awesome new discoveries and personal recommendations! #Books #Podcasts #Tech #Humour #Psychology #BestOfTheWeb


Happy November, and welcome to the 66th issue of ‘How Curious!’ ✌️
These past weeks have been busy! With heaps of travel and a few conferences, I’ve had less free time than I’d like, but I’m glad to finally send this month’s newsletter.
On the work front, it was nice to speak on a panel at the iManage ConnectLive conference in London and organise a meetup for 100+ legal professionals at the Web Summit in Lisbon.
I’ve relocated from Berlin to Portugal after a lengthy climate-conscious journey via train and bus from Dusseldorf -> Paris -> Bordeaux -> Madrid Lisbon. It’s good to be back on the waves, munching pastel de natas, and soaking up stunning sunsets 🏄‍♂️🌅
