I am a huge fan of The NY Times. Along with the Financial Times, The Washington Post, The Economist and sometimes The Wall Street Journal (all of which I subscribe to and read daily) it is a beacon of English language journalism. Their 2020 report is a master class on change. How every company has to change in a digital world. Do read it. Journalism That Stands Apart - The New York Times
The report of the The New York Times’s 2020 group, on the future of the newsroom.

One of my favorite spots to resurrect the spirit after a long week across three cities. The reading/writing nook at Shakespeare and Company. Paris. A moveable feast..

The most dominant company in Silicon Valley is a firm so disruptive that it wants to disrupt Silicon Valley. This is a long read but one anyone interested in the future should spend 30 minutes with. It will illuminate, inspire, irritate, and impact you in many ways.
Is the head of Y Combinator fixing the world, or trying to take over Silicon Valley?
