Hello internet friends!
Did you miss me?
Yeah, well, I wouldn’t either. But here we are, new year and everything. And after I sort of ghosted you back in September, here I am. With the newsletter, resolution edition.
What happened on the internet since we last caught up? Turns out a lot and nothing in particular. And I think the best way to see the current state of the world is this very insightful article on medium dot com: some images i saved to my laptop in 2018
I guess now we know where people go after we all decided Tumblr isn’t for us anymore.
Everything is fake these days (Not really. Honestly. Don’t freak out.) so why not try to be a fake rock star? This dude tried it and it went about as well as one would expect: Jered Threatin
What a story, though.
One of the best things I’ve read since we heard from each other the last time is this wonderful story how a magazine sent a writer to a cruise with a whole bunch of cryptocurrency people: Four Days Trapped at Sea With Crypto’s Nouveau Riche
So if you have seen the link previously somewhere else and didn’t read it – why not today?
Some other internet detritus that I picked out of my feedreader for you:
- ‘Hi-tech robot’ at Russia forum turns out to be man in suit – many people shared this with “lol, russia” captions, but in the end we all know deep inside that this is the future we’re heading towards.
- The Best Thing on TV This Year Was: ‘Survivor: David vs. Goliath’ – I’ve heard a lot about this season of Survivor, so I found some way to watch it and actually did enjoy it a lot. Not too sure it was the best thing on TV this year. After all, Terrace House is still on.
- Talking about TV: Netflix Will Keep ‘Friends’ Through Next Year in a $100 Million Agreement – wow. That is a lot of money.
- We Should Replace Facebook With Personal Websites – yes, we should. Do you have a personal website? Maybe even one with an RSS feed for updates? Let me know.
Oh well. Happy new year. Maybe this one works out?
