Thanks Jacob.

Munique - an app for reading newsletters

Munique lets you read your favorite newsletters in one place. No need to resubscribe or search for your favorite authors -- just sign in with your Google account and Munique will do the rest.

This is a cool idea. Depending on where the description is, you can put App Store and Play Store button links on the page, so you don't have to mention iOS and Android.

Hi Jacob, thanks for responding. Will take all this into account. I have been worried about not having timestamps on the news summaries -- your comment makes a lot of sense to me.

If you don't mind, would you explain what you think would happen when you click the Follow button on a given topic?

I'm building Munique, a newsletter reader.

by following I would expect to see those news on my feed and possibly get a notification.

Currently jumping between several books:

  1. Working in Public to prep for a journalism class I'm teaching next semester, where I want students to explore how to use open source principles in news gathering.
  2. How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big to really study a lot of Scott Adams's ideas on systems vs. goals, affirmations, and the role of irrationality in daily life.
  3. The Two Towers to relax.

Reading The Fifth Risk. Michael Lewis wrote Liar's Poker, Money Ball, The Big Short, and other finance books. This one is about the Obama-Trump transition and focuses (at least as far as I've read) on the Department of Energy. Super interesting.
