Old thinking won’t open new doors, so we seek to gain new insights from research and reading every day, to provoke and fuse experience with knowledge.
This Thinking Outloud section is my online library of links to articles, books, podcasts and stuff that I believe you’ll find useful. I love reading. I love diving down the rabbit hole, and I hope you do too.
