Sunday is probably the best day of the week to just grab a book, a cool soda or a cup of tea (depending on which side of the globe you´re currently living on), and chill and get smarter at the same time.

There are three publications that I might start to read today or on any upcoming Sunday: “Remix – Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy” by Lawrence Lessig, “Definition – The Art and Design of Hip Hop” by Cey Adam and Bill Adler and “Off the Books: The Underground Economy of the Urban Poor” by Sudhir Alladi Venkatesh.
