Thanks for signing up for a “Letter from Om”
Welcome to our growing community, and thank you for allowing me to enter the inner sanctum of your email inbox. Out of respect for your time and attention, here’s what you can expect:
- I aggregate what I usually share on Twitter, including links to interesting articles in an (almost) daily newsletter.
- You will likely experience the newsletter at a higher-than-usual frequency, but no promises.
- The comments are open if you want to share feedback or engage in conversation.
- What lands in your inbox will typically be focused on trends, and observations relating to technology and the future, but I might occasionally send photos from my travels. This brings me to my next point…
- You’ll never know exactly what’s coming. As Eleanor Roosevelt said, “If life were predictable, it would cease to be life and be without flavor.” Sometimes, you may just get my observations and analysis. Other times, I’ll provide links to articles that are worth reading. Now and then, I might offer up one of my podcasts. Please don’t count on consistency. You can, however, count on my respect for your time and attention.
- I will do my best to keep things short. If I write a long essay or publish an extended interview, I won’t email you the whole thing. I will send a synopsis, and if it grabs your interest, you can always check out the whole thing on my blog. I’ll include a link.
- You are invited and encouraged to respond. If you are taking the time to read and mull over my thoughts, I am happy to do the same for you.
Before we get started, please do check your spam filter settings to make sure my messages are coming through. If they are, and you like what you read, please tell your friends and encourage them to join us. This is going to be fun.
To get you started, here are some of my favorite evergreen articles for you to read and enjoy:
- Why iPhone is today’s Kodak Brownie Camera.
- Tech’s dual reality: Love it, hate it, but we can’t live without technology.
- Forty kilometers: A rumination on data, and its fallacies.
- Nothing is real: how online has distorted our sense of reality.
- A conversation with self-made luxury goods magnate Brunello Cucinelli about the dignity of work, a concept Silicon Valley doesn’t understand.
