RESEARCH, READING, AND LEARNING
How will generative A.I. and other emerging technologies affect future employability for today's high school students?
What do families of college applicants need to know about how public policy, both domestic and international, is affecting U.S. higher education?
Where is the world's economy headed, and how are colleges faring and behaving within that ecosystem?
To learn more about the answers to these and other questions, I engage in daily, perpetual deep [human] learning across disciplines: from architecture, artificial intelligence, and botany all the way to (sure, why not) zoology.
Here are some publications, videos, podcasts, newsletters, and other sources I'm drawing from as I seek to cultivate a thoroughly-informed, up-to-date advising perspective.
If you think any of these are interesting, feel free to check out issues of my now-retired newsletter.

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
Most recently, I've dug into a new series of college rankings that families might find useful.
THE NEW YORK TIMES
As a complement to the WSJ.
For exposure to cutting-edge research in the sciences, much of which will soon be led by students I've worked with.
For a reliable intellectual challenge, and to learn as much as possible about the next frontiers in science and math.
THE NEW YORKER
For long-form articles and free canvas totes.
BURNING GLASS INSTITUTE
Think tank focused on the future of work. These are the folks behind the rankings in the WSJ link above. I reached out to the team recently and had the chance to speak with their Chief of Staff; they're doing neat research.
In this podcast originally aired on Minnesota Public Radio, host Krista Tippett explores questions of meaning, purpose, and what it means to be human.
WAIT BUT WHY
Intellectually interesting, humorous, nonpartisan, approachable takes on a wide range of topics (politics, A.I., cryogenics, tech, meaningful living).
