Protecting Sight #316: How the Black List changed the way movies get made. High astigmatism & amiodarone optic neuropathy. A masterclass on intrinsic value.

Welcome to my daily learning journal. Here is today’s list:

1. Ted Talk – Franklin Leonard: How I accidentally changed the way movies get made. “How does Hollywood choose what stories get told on-screen? Too often, it’s groupthink informed by a narrow set of ideas about what sells at the box office. As a producer, Franklin Leonard saw too many great screenplays never get made because they didn’t fit the mold. So he started the Black List, an anonymous email that shared his favorite screenplays and asked: Why aren’t we making these movies? Learn the origin story of some of your favorite films with this fascinating insider view of the movie business.” (

Fascinating talk and a great storyteller.

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1084: toric planning for high astigmatism. Nice pearls.

3. Andrew Lee MD – Amiodarone optic neuropathy.

Dr. Lee’s 450+ neuro-ophthalmology reviews are perfect for lifelong learning.

4. TIP346: MASTERCLASS IN VALUATIONS W/ CHRIS BLOOMSTRAN. “On today’s show, Stig has invited famous investor Chris Bloomstran from Semper Augustus to teach us a masterclass about valuation techniques. It’s no surprise that Chris Bloomstran is heavily followed on Dataroma alongside investors like Warren Buffett and Howard Marks.”

Excellent and detailed valuation exercise for Berkshire Hathaway.
