Leading our day is an excellent post on Stratechery about the various social platforms and digital advertising. It is definitely an interesting read if you have a startup that depends on advertising for revenue. On Conversation Agent, Valeria Maltoni talks about the growth mindset. One thing that really made sense to me is the idea that growth is not just about effort, sometimes you need to ask for help. Knowing how, when and who to ask for help is an important skill. If you are interested in vector editing tools, Figma Design came up with an elegant solution to dealing with a set of vectors. They introduce vector networks instead of the typical path-based solution.
