#ProtectingSight #410: How a typeface helped launch Apollo. ACIOLs & facial pain. Market efficiency & opportunity.

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

1. Ted Talk – Douglas Thomas: How a typeface helped launch Apollo. “When humanity first landed on the moon in 1969, the typeface Futura was right there with them. In this fascinating history of typography, designer Douglas Thomas shares Futura’s role in launching the Apollo 11 spacecraft — and how it became one of the most used fonts in the world.” (ted.com description)

Loved this Ted Talk. And now a fascination with typeface.

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1178: AC IOL orientation & calculations. Great pearls.

3. Andrew Lee MD – Facial/Eye Pain in the Ophthalmology Clinic.

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

4. Gautam Baid – The Joys of Compounding: The Passionate Pursuit of Lifelong Learning, Revised and Updated (Heilbrunn Center for Graham & Dodd Investing Series). Chapter 23 on market efficiency & opportunities.

I continue to enjoy books on value investing, lifelong learning, mental models, and more. Excellent chapters with amazing quotations.
