The twenty-fifth edition of my weekly newsletter is out! Check it out here.
This week, I wrote a summary of “10% Human” by Alanna Collen. Research into the codependence between humans and the bacteria living in our gut is revealing startling facts, and this book is a good introduction to how our bodies work together with bacteria to make “us”.
This week from the internet, @MarcJBrooker on how web-scale systems are built, Juntin Etheredge on why it takes so long to build software, and Richard Bartlett on why he believes that the problem in organization design is not hierarchies but power structures.
