Matt Waldman’s RSP Reads Listens Views (Friday January 11, 2019)

Matt Waldman’s Reads Listens Views is back and devoted to a short list of recommended reads, listens, and views for the week.  


If you’re new to the Rookie Scouting Portfolio blog, welcome.  Every Friday, I post links to pieces that I’ve found personally compelling or to content I hope will eventually scratch that itch when I get around to it.

You may not like everything listed here, but you’re bound to like something.

Then He Located Our Phone (T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T are selling access to their customers’ location data, and that data is ending up in the hands of bounty hunters and others not authorized to possess it, letting them track most phones in the country.)…I’ve read this one and it’s disquieting information.


Rest in peace, Roy Hargrove…



If I had this kid’s ears…but this video goes way beyond perfect pitch but early childhood development and acquiring language. Fascinating.
