If you know me, you’ll know I have a quite extensive reading list. I keep it in Pocket, and is part of my to do stored in Things3. It used to be large (hovering around 230 items since August) but during Christmas it got out of control, reaching almost 300 items.
That was too much, and I set myself a goal for 2019 to keep it trimmed and sweet. And indeed, since the beginning of the year I have read or canceled 171 articles (122 in the past week, 106 of which were read). That’s a decently sized book!
To help me in this goal, I’ll (or at least I hope) be writing a weekly post about what interesting stuff I have read the past week. Beware, this week may be a bit larger than usual, since I wanted to bring the numbers down as fast as possible.
NOTE: The themes are varied. Software/data engineering, drawing, writing. Expect a similar wide range in the future as well.
Super interesting (and long) post about how FSA and FST are used for fast search in Rust (I’m a bit into Rust lately). Also, BurntSushi’s (Andrew Gallant, the author) cat is called Cauchy, something I appreciate as my cat is named Fatou.
I’m considering converting this into a weekly newsletter in addition to a blog post. These days (since RSS went into limbo) most of my regular information comes from several newsletters I’m subscribed to, instead of me going directly to a blog. If this is also your case, subscribe by clicking here and if enough people join I’ll send these every Sunday night or so.
