BlackBird's Bullets #18: AMZN tips; walking; The Office; Kaspersky; and moving houses
Welcome to the eighteenth edition of my five-bullet newsletter. I committed to delivering twenty editions in this series, and I'm also working on something new. The weekly newsletter will continue after the #20, but I'm working on a new format/platform. Stay tuned.
I'm still working on the Chapter 4 draft of the #ChallengeAccepted book. I'll release it here once the raw copy is done, but in the meantime, I've been distracting myself with some other writing. Artistic freedom.

- Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of the IT security firm Kaspersky is an avid blogger and traveler. When you're stuck at home in the world's largest country, you can always find interesting opportunities to travel. He's on an expedition from Magadan to Moscow — that's more than twelve thousand kilometers. Check the map —Magadan is eastern than Japan! Well written and with full-day dash-cam videos.
- You haven't lived if you haven't seen a 139-year-old Victorian house rolling through San Francisco. Change the house number, keep the house?
See you next week.
