Andrew Krausnick, Executive Producer, Trion Worlds, says of his pick, “I picked up a book called ‘Idea Work’ a few months ago while in Denmark but haven’t gotten to dive in to it until this month and it’s great. It’s about creative thinking in all types of industries from law to finding new sites for oil and what ties them all together.”

Andy Ihnatko of the Chicago Sun Times picks Plex for Apple TV. “Plex is a free piece of server software that you put onto any Mac in your house … and it will simply make all of your content, your music, your videos, your pictures, everything, available to pretty much any Plex client that you own anywhere in the world … It’s available for just about everything. I’ve got it on my Roku, there’s Plex client’s preinstalled on TVs and now I’ve got it on my Apple TV. It’s such a great thing to have if you’re like me and in the habit of buying video content that is free of DRM. The great thing about the Apple TV app is that it is a free app.”

Max Levchin, CEO of Affirm and former CTO/cofounder of PayPal, shares this song. “Yesterday, I heard a song (I collect productivity-enhancing songs) by a band I’ve never heard of — Acid Horse, which was awesome. Then, found out that it was literally a single-song side project by Ministry years ago :-)”
