Joe Rogan recommends The Seven Five documentary featuring former NYPD officer Mike Dowd. “One of the craziest documentaries I’ve ever seen in my life. It’s an honest portrayal of people going of the rails because you had the ability to do so. We’ve all witnessed some cops that are out of control. I think that’s what happens when you have people in power and nobody is checking that power.”

Alex Lindsay, Chief Architect at the Pixel Corps picks the Spigen Rugged Armor Apple Watch case. “Everyone asks what I put on my watch. It’s a piece of rubber that goes on it. It comes with a watch face cover. I got a Sport and I didn’t want it to get scratched up. I’ve been very happy with it.”

Chad Fowler, CTO at Wunderlist (acquired by Microsoft) picks The E Myth Revisited by Michael Gerber. “One I always reference is The E Myth Resisted. It is about why small businesses fail. The why of it is that he lays out a strategy and a systems thinking approach to business that you can apply to any scale.”

Matt Hartman, Director of Seed Investments at Betaworks, recommends Drafts for iOS. “My absolute favourite productivity tool is Drafts for iPhone. It is in my home screen dock. It is basically a free form type text box and you can run a macro on whatever you type. Whenever you run a macro, for example, if you want to add something to your todo list, you can add it to Evernote in one tap. I have another macro for investments weekly agenda, so I can send a macro there. You can send things to Trello boards. It is basically an input box that can send to any API you want.”
