lnkd: preinterview (negotiation, pmm, pm), delving into symsys/cogsci/linguistics/truenames (via scifi).
kites: Following a general pattern of being more interested in intuition and fluidity over rigid description to get at the "essence" of things, fascinated over Murakami's work.
My favorite genre is probably Magical Realism because it has taught me so much on how to live. It is related to meta-narration and mythology. It is a departure from the traditionally heavy continental literature (attempts to portray the world through a Realist's lens).
Favorite authorsAlain De Botton, Po Bronson (Shared favorites)
