(This is a small series, where I want to share about a few people whom I knew online and has had a significant influence on my thinking. How I came to know them? Key lessons learnt from them)

My introduction to Venkat Rao or VGR came from a Farnam Street podcast. What caught my attention was that Marc Andreessen had commissioned VGR to write a series of essays, Breaking Smart, on exploring the "software is eating the world" them. Not only that, Marc seemed to be very impressed with his blogs at Ribbonfarm and had cold emailed him.

RibbonFarm is a cognitively intense blog. For me, many of their blogs require re-reading. I confess that I still struggle to finish reading some of their long-form content. I need to prime my mind to read the content.

Key Lessons I have learnt:
