“Joined Patreon yesterday. Really enjoyed it. The short videos e.g. poles and bottles were thorough and challenged some of my ideas.
I listened to the first 2 chapters of the book. I’m really enjoying it. What I like is it’s isn’t just a “how to become an ML” there’s plenty of consideration to “after you become an active ML””
