On July 28th, we were delighted to host our second Curiouser of the month. We gathered around the virtual table to each share something that intrigues or excites us. The ideas were as fascinating as ever, covering a range of topics that allowed us to touch on a little bit of everything.
Here are the highlights:
Nupura Bhise shared a painting that inspired her with its mix of hues and unique technique.
Carolina Fowler made the case for mindfulness in the workplace and beyond through her discussion of Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown.
Daniel Goldstein pondered how the sports industry has been rallying to recreate the experience of in-person events, reflecting on the way the community has had to adapt to COVID-19.
Neeraj Chandra recommended Antifragile: Things That Gain From Disorder by Nassim Nicholas Taleb, and discussed both how to build systems that can withstand shock and how he’s incorporated the concept of antifragility into his life.
Estrella Spans expressed her enthusiasm over neuromarketing and drew upon a few points from Blindsight by Matt Johnson & Prince Ghuman.
Zach Braiker closed the evening by recognizing how COVID-19 has spurred a digital health revolution, offering the hopeful observation that there are silver linings to the current crisis.
