You’re sitting at your computer, staring at this page, thinking about whether it’s worth the subscribe and more emails in your inbox each week.
We’re writing this from a coffee shop in Mexico City, wondering what’s going to make you GIVE US YOUR INFO… Our 40% open rate? the promise of intellect? insight without having to file an expense report?
Let’s cut to it. We curate and collect the most fascinating tidbits the internet has to offer that are worth a damn, and serve them up to you with our (sometimes snarky, often interesting, and occasionally sage) two cents.
We aren’t savants or wizards (debatable). We are Rosie & Faris Yakob. But you knew that, right? Strategic and creative thinkers in a cluttered, polarized, but awesome world — just trying to make sense of it all.
Here’s what we believe: Originality is a myth — but nothing comes from nothing. And copying is lame. You’ve got to expose yourself to the best of what’s out there. That can be anywhere, or anything. Leverage everything. (Maybe even links from our newsletter?) Because creativity comes from unlikely connections. And we’re all about unlikely connections.
Sometimes life is exactly what that throw pillow says: Drink more whiskey and hit “subscribe.”
