Here I occasionally post some links to articles and other content that I have found inspiring. It is a collection of bookmarks for myself and for everyone else that might enjoy them. So there is a reason to return from time to time. I hope it gives you better insight into how I think and what fascinates me. And whether we may be culture fit or not.
Podcasts I listen to
👉 In the beginning of the first COVID19 lockdown I prepared a separate subpage (in Estonian) where I recommend talkshows.
Business of HYPE by Jeff Staples, Influencers with Andy Serwer, Freakonomics (occasionally), Algorütm (Estonian tech podcast), Waveform by MKBHD, Recode Media with Peter Kafka, Uncensored by Inc, Restart (Estonian tech podcast, sometimes they have had really good shows), IDA Radio talkshows (Vitamiin K, Materialism, IDA jutud)
Just beautiful websites
Bustle, Input Mag, Poolside FM, blokdots, Haus, wwwstuudio (and their portfolio, this is what I think of when someone says “front-end”), Overclothing, WePresent by WeTransfer, GRRR, Dropbox blog, IDA Radio (absolute fan), Radio Helsinki, Ranno Ait (cool portfolio)
