Issue 100!
I’m back after taking a few weeks off this summer with a special issue: number 100! Thank you for your ongoing readership and support. Going forward I’m making a few changes to the overall structure of the weekly email. I’m going to be taking a more free flowing approach to the weekly instead of focusing the articles into the previously specific categories. There will be links and posts largely on whatever I find interesting or compelled to write about. To be sure, you can expect a lot of fintech, commerce and tech related posts, but the forced categorization made the process feel more burdensome than I wanted. So I’m scrapping it! I hope you enjoy the new format and, as always, please provide feedback if you have it.

Taps’ Notes: Tuesdays With Morrie
Quote I’ve been thinking about: “Learn to question yourself: Why this anger or resentment? Where does this incessant need for attention come from? Under such scrutiny, your emotions will lose their hold on you. You will begin to think for yourself instead of reacting to what others give you. Emotions tend to narrow the mind, making us focus on one or two ideas that satisfy our immediate desire for power or attention, ideas that usually backfire.” - Robert Greene, The Laws of Human Nature
