Benjamin Franklin Peoplescape Book Review

The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin

(November 30, 2023) Benjamin Franklin became a recurring name thrown at me. First, while watching an interview of billionaire Charlie Munger, he said he kept 2 busts in his home of 2 people he admired the most - Benjamin Franklin and Lee Kuan Yew. On a '19 Recommended Books to Read in your Lifetime', I saw Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography. And while watching the American Revolution, Benjamin loomed larger than life. While watching an interview of celebrated author Walter Isaacson who was promoting his recent book about Elon Musk, I learned that he also authored a Benjamin Franklin biography! In my world-view of a benevolent universe blazing a path for me, this is a strong statement that I should roll up my sleeves and get to know Benjamin Franklin in an intimate way - by reading his autobiography...more »»

Charlie Munger

Charlie Munger on Daily Learning

(Nov 28, 2023) Charlie Munger just died. Viewing his quotes, one thing resonated with me - lifelong learning. If you can honestly say you got smarter today compared to yesterday, then you did good.

Canghaling Cave Caving

Canghaling Cave

(November 14, 2023) Canghaling Cave is one of the most amazing caves I've seen. Imagine a hole in the ground covered with lush vegetation, 40 feet across and about 50 feet deep (resembling an open mine pit). Down below are the gaping mouths of 2 caves. On one of them, it takes rapelling to enter. No guides and no one around. From the street level, there is a corroded spiral staircase that takes you to the bottom...more »»
