Maria Popova is a brain picker | Dumbo Feather Magazine
“Books are the original internet,” Maria Popova tells me with a grin. She is switched on, ballsy, irresistibly articulate, fully engaged. This is Maria’s gift. She talks about complex ideas in a way that transforms them into something I want to talk about with my friends. She makes big concepts relevant.
What an interesting person, I'm not an usual reader of brain pickings
but I will read it more often; I just love self taught people.
