From My Inbox: 7 Songs

If you were asked to list 7 songs that create a sense of wonder for you…what songs would you list?

I was asked this very question by my good friends at The Nucleus Group. Take a listen to my choices (The Nucleus Group on Spotify) and yes, I did have really really big hair in the 80’s.

Now, here’s what I’ve curated from my inbox for you this week:

  • I Refuse / I fuse (Leaving Well, with Naomi Hattaway)
  • ​​​NSF and philanthropic partners announce $16 million in funding to prioritize ethical and social considerations in emerging technologies​​ (NSF News)
