Upon writing down what I liked so much during the month of May that I wanted to recommend to everybody, I thought this month there was not really that much to write about. However, after starting to look in my YouTube and Google history I discovered I have actually read and watched some pretty interesting things. Despite having a tracking list of all the books I have read so far, I thought I had no other way to hold myself accountable for all the other sources of knowledge I use. Turns out, my promise to myself to write these recurring Recommendation articles is the best way to keep me on the track of learning something new and different every month. After this small epiphany I decided to ask you as well what do you do to keep yourself accountable for the knowledge you earn? Goodreads? Folders of read articles in a special app? Handwritten lists? I would love to hear it all!

This free course about AI is offered by the University of Helsinki (kudos to you, folks!) and so far has proven a great introduction to a topic I had been curious for a long time. If you are also doing the course, let me know, so we can chat about it!
I promise this older TED Ed video about Islamic art and geometry will be a delight for your eyes and the best short incursion into the magic world of architecture, design and symmetry.
