Bloodline, Books, and the Brain: Revelations from my “Digital Footprint”

One of my main goals for The Guide is to share the things that excite me, and my “digital footprint” provides an interesting resource: the photos I I take, the movies I watch, the links I save.

As I look back at the things I’ve saved just in the past month, they paint an interesting picture of the things I’ve been enjoying/thinking about. (Gold, Jerry, GOLD!)

Here’s my July Netflix consumption. As you can tell, I enjoyed a “marathon” viewing of the Netflix drama series Bloodline


I read a bunch of RSS feeds on any given day (“Reeder” is my go-to procrastination tool), and hit “Add to Reading List” when something catches my attention. I also bookmark products I’m interested in, as well as books, movies, TV shows, etc.

Here’s a look at a few recent items;;
